We say…

From humble beginnings, Carluccio’s has grown into a well-loved brand of restaurants, since first opening as a small cafe and shop stocking Italian food and ingredients in 1991. With over 30 successful branches throughout the country Carluccio’s has developed a loyal following from those who appreciate authentic cuisine at sensible prices.

Founder Antonio Carluccio carries extensive knowledge of food and has served varied roles as a wine merchant, restaurant manager and owner, cookery expert on television and has published twelve well received cookery books. The philosophy expressed by Antonio centres around offering the most flavour with the least fuss, through the use of fresh produce and by working in the main with family businesses who care greatly about the traditions behind the food.

As you would expect from an Italian restaurant, Carluccio’s Leicester offer a wide selection of red, white, rose and sparkling wines designed to complement the menu. Classic dishes include Neapolitana spaghetti with whole fresh clams, garlic, herbs and chilli or the Branzino con salsa e patate – pan fried fillet of sea bass  with a rich tomato salsa and sautéed potatoes. For those with a sweet tooth, Carluccio’s Leicester offer a good range of desserts to finish your meal including a delicious tiramisu, a chocolate and kahlua pudding or a range of Italian ice-creams and regional cheeses.
