Things 2 Do in London: Carluccio’s!

Carluccio’s is one of my favorite places to dine in the UK! If you are a fan of Fatafeet or BBC Food, you would recognize Carluccio’s Chef: Antonio Carluccio from the cooking shows!

I could eat every day in Carluccio and never get bored… i always start with their Bread Basket that contains the amazing foccasia bread and a Zuppa Di fagioli (bean and pasta soup) which is my favorite. I dont have a picture of my beloved soup but the bread basket i do have 🙂

I love to dunk that Foccasia in my soup until it is soaked… and they bite into the lovely combo with the rosemary and the coarse sea salt poking at my taste buds ❤

My favourite pasta, not pictured unfortunately, is the mushroom and parpadelli pasta… followed closely by this amazing pasta: it has shredded courgette and peppers with a lovely butter sauce and a side of fried spinach balls! Even better: some of the proceeds of his dish goest to charity! It is really really REALLY good…

I also love their Ravioli stuffed with spinach and riccota… it usually comes with butter sauce but we always ask for it with tomato sauce… the pasta is so fresh and soft… the spinach so fresh and the cheese is so tangy ❤ it’s an absolute joy to dine on!

This particular branch has a beautiful view as well…

Carluccio’s breakfast, croissant, and pastries are amazing as well. They also have a hot chocolate order where they bring you a pot of pure chocolate and a pot of cream and let you mix and match to your taste… pure heaven!

Best of all is the Carluccio’s Store and Deli! They sell lovely Fresh Italian food you can take for a picnic or to enjoy at home and quality italian cooking ingredients… like the Orecchiette pasta i used in this post or those gelatos for example…

Carluccio’s is located in St. Christopher place, and Covent Garden, and The airport, and Milton Keynes, and Bisecter Village, and in Heathrow terminal five. Also in… DUBAI! Now if it made it to Dubai why can’t it make a small detour and arrive here as well!!!

    Oh my goodness, what a shame, I was just in Terminal Five and had no clue, instead we went to some pitiful fish and chips pub in concourse A and had to run to catch our flight in concourse B. How do they make a gate announcement only 20 minutes before departure? There are signs throughout concourse A that tell you it takes 15 minutes to get to B or C even if you use their train.

      Hmmm that’s strange… we usually wait forever for our gate to be announced and they usually let us wait for ever at the gate until we board?
      Carluccio’s is before the Duty free Area so maybe that’s why u didn’t have it as a choice…
