Where is the best pasta in Mayfair?
Italian cuisine is a much loved staple in everyone's diet. Whether it is a wood fired pizza, a bowl of the best pasta, or a delectable serving of crusty bruschetta, the Italians know how to make mouth's water.
Carluccio's is a wholesome Italian chain that has got all the bells and whistles to compete with the popular Vapiano chain.
Tucked into a secret little alley, called St Christopher's Place, off the busy Oxford Street, lies Carluccio's Italian and delicious Italian it is. Having been in operation for over 20 years, it is no wonder that people enjoy a Friday night wine and dine at this establishment.
Carluccio's hosts an array of appetisers ranging from rustic garlic bread to the always satisfying bruschetta with wholesome tomatoes drizzled in authentic olive oil. For a tapas fix, you can always opt for the mixed Antipasto platter for two.
If you are after a meal to fill your tum, you cannot go past the London game poultry of venison in the Tortellini Di Cervo, or the Penne Giardiniera for a lighter, less buttery dish. Affordable pricing and quality ingredients makes Carluccio's a winner with most. Lines are always out the door, so it is important to book a table, or you may be waiting for some time, this applies to lunch and dinner. With 45 restaurants sprawled around the UK, you will definitely find one near you to test out flavoursome Italian in true European style.
