Carluccio’s began life in 1991 when Antonio and Priscilla opened their food shop in Neal Street, bringing the finest quality regional Italian food to London.
They carefully wrote each label by hand and explored the length and breadth of Italy to find the best ingredients. In 1999, they opened the first Carluccio’s Caffè in Market Place – an authentic Italian restaurant in the truest sense of the word, and a continuation of their successful food shop.
Their aim was to provide great-quality, authentic Italian food at sensible prices, and informal but excellent service to our customers. That aim remains the same today. We cook by Antonio’s motto: MOF MOF. Minimum of fuss, maximum of flavour.
Using the freshest seasonal ingredients, the varied restaurant menu will offer something for everyone. Look forward to a satisfying selection of appetising Italian dishes, from delicious antipasti and fresh handmade pasta sauces, to seasonal fish, meat, vegetarian and vegan mains plus decadent desserts.
Head to the food shop to browse shelves bursting with beautifully packaged Italian products, many sourced direct from small artisan producers in Italy, including oil, wines, coffee, biscuits, pastas, rice, antipasti, sauces and handmade chocolates.
