Using the freshest seasonal ingredients, many sourced directly from Italy; the varied restaurant menu provides something for everyone, with dishes prepared on site daily by Carluccio’s chefs.
Must-try first courses include Parmigiano (Parmesan chunks drizzled with sweet aged balsamic vinegar) and the delicious Bruschettine (mini bruschetta with tomatoes and peppers, goats cheese, onion jam and chicken liver pâté). Other antipasti options include Prosciutto (thinly sliced long-cured Parma ham served with Buffalo mozzarella) and Sardine alla Griglia (chargrilled sardine fillets with radicchio, rosemary and balsamic dressing). For main course, there are over 11 pasta dishes to choose from, including Spaghetti alle Vongole (Neapolitan spaghetti with whole fresh clams, garlic, herbs and chilli) and Carluccio’s signature Ravioli (homemade delicate ravioli filled with spinach and ricotta, served in the traditional way with butter and sage). Struggling to chose? The tasting trio for two is ideal for those who can’t decide. If you’re looking for a quick pit-stop between meetings or the shopping spree opt for one of Carluccio’s light salads including the Insalata Campagnola, made with crumbled baked ricotta cheese, ripe tomatoes, chargrilled aubergines, croutons, olives and fresh basil. Alternatively the Deluxe Antipasto board to share comes complete with delicious roasted peppers, Napoli and Milano salami, chargrilled vegetables, pancetta wrapped prawns, homemade pâté, bruschettine, warm baked spiced ricotta, marinated olives and toasted Italian bread.
Home-style desserts prepared by hand every day include an indulgent Tiramisu ai Frutti di Bosco (a summertime version of the classic – mascarpone cream with light sponge, berries and raspberry coulis) and Meringa con Panna al Frutto della Passione (raspberry meringue with a passion fruit cream and fresh summer fruit). And of course, there’s Carluccio’s own authentic Gelati Artigianali ice cream.
