We thought you can't go wrong with a Carluccio's restaurant. How wrong were we! They ran out of the kind of pasta for the dish I ordered and when the waiter came to tell me he asked if I would accept penne instead. The menu...advised it was penne so I was confused. I then witnessed a very angry manager shouting at the waiter. Quite frankly it was totally unnecessary and it really doesn't matter what kind of pasta it is. We then waited for about 30mins for our food. It was tasteless and I wouldn't recommend eating here.More

I travel at least monthly from T5 and this used to be a favourite haunt (big shout out to Pradeep who used to work here). Food was consistently good, service friendly and prompt. Over the past year the place has gone downhill. The meal i...had last sunday was really the last straw. Tasteless, small portions and i swear the pasta al fungi came out without any sauce. The mushrooms tasted and looked as if they had been boiled for half an hour. I left feedback with carluccio's through their own website on sunday night. Still to get a reply 5 days later...More

I was surprised - always have wanted to try Carluccios and did yesterday whilst waiting for my flight. Service was attentive (yet not in your face) and the food was great - drinks were well priced too! I have a large concern that when you...are "imprisoned" in an airport terminal they outlets have you and can charge whatever they want (to ridiculous levels) Carluccios clearly do not :)More

I'm normally averse to using chain / corporate restaurants but of course at airports you have no choice but in my estimation you'd struggle to find a tastier brunch than their traditional breakfast with eggs on toast, mushrooms, bacon, sausage, tomatoes, and roast potato -...couple that with proper coffee - excellentMore

Hello SteveStead, thank you - we really appreciate your feedback.

We have visited Carluccio's at T5 regularly for years. Food, quality and service wise it is very good for breakfast, lunch or dinner. HOWEVER, I just found out that as on January 2020 the staff will ONLY receive 15% of any tip paid by credit...card. This, in my opinion is unacceptable. Manager I look forward to hear how you can justify TAKING 85% of the staff tips?. From now please leave only Cash tips everyone. Otherwise you are just paying more money for your food. I will no longer give card tips.More

One of the best quality breakfasts I have had in an airport. Good variety of dishes, and good flavors. Recommended.

Slow service and average food to an airport price. But then, they are the only restaurant in Terminal 5. Great that kids eat for free.

I had lunch here with my family before they had to catch their flight back home. We had a pretty good meal overall, however at the end there was a moment that has left me with some bitter aftertaste. At the time of paying the...bill, we were in a bit of a rush and hadn’t realised that the bill didn’t include a 12.5% service charge as most places do, so I chose not to leave a tip. After I realised that, it was too late and we didn’t have any cash with us. We thought to quickly withdraw some money, however the waiter was visibly upset by us not leaving a tip and stormed off. I really didn’t like this attitude, especially because I do not like to feel bad if I do not leave a tip, whatever the reason may be. This time was an honest mistake and I would have found some cash to hand over to him if only he hadn’t stormed off like that. I have worked as waitress for quite some time in London and never made a customer feel bad for not leaving a tip, as that’s up to them. ThanksMore

My son was leaving to go on a trip and as I was dropping him off I decided to pop in and have a farewell dinner. The restaurant (which is landslide before you go through security) offers the usual Carluccio’s fare which was very enjoyable....Prompt service and the food was tasty. Not a bad way to start a trip and was not outrageous pricing which you always fear at an airport.More
