Sufficiently full of bread and debating whether to cancel the main dish before I fell into a carb coma, I gave in to the mountain of Spaghetti Carbonara placed in front of me. I love Carluccio’s carbonara, and they are so incredibly generous with their portion sizes that I ended up piling some of it onto Liam’s plate. My only criticism of the dish was that the pancetta was crazy salty so table water came in handy!
Credit where credit is due, Carluccio’s food is really tasty and good value too. We both had starters and mains, and Liam had one drink whilst I opted for a jug of water for the table. The bill came to £30 which sits in the “just about right” spectrum for me for a decent and filling lunch which also meant skipping dinner.
I definitely recommend giving Carluccio’s a try if you haven’t done so already. Although, I have to admit that after two visits quite close to each other, I’ll be taking a bit of a break from them for a little while!
