Carluccio's much-loved Italian caffés, restaurants and foodshops offer friendly and affordable Italian eating, drinking and shopping in relaxed surroundings. Serving up genuine regional Italian food, at Carluccio's you can drop in for anything from a true Italian coffee - with two specially created blends to choose from - to a thoroughly satisfying three-course meal with wine, as well as everything in between: pastries, cakes and tarts; a plate of long-cured Parma ham; even an Italian cooked breakfast.

The seasonally changing menu boasts an array of authentic Italian dishes and has something for everyone. Diners can look forward to light antipasti, salads, fresh homemade pasta dishes, paninis, hearty meat, fish and vegetarian mains, plus decadent desserts. Favourite dishes include the delicious penne alla luganica - tubes of pasta with a rich and spicy luganica sausage sauce.

For dessert, tasty treats such as coppa di gelato all'amarena - (vanilla ice cream layered with amarena cherries and served in a sundae glass) and classic tiramisu keeps loyal customers coming back for more. The food is complemented by an excellent list of carefully selected regional Italian wines. Vegetarians have plenty to choose from and there is also a gluten-free menu available.

Allow a friendly member of staff to sit you down in the light and airy dining room to peruse the extensive menu. Perhaps you might start by sharing the generous antipasto massimo with your companion - the platter comes simply laden with focaccia, Napoli and Milano salami, roast ham, stuffed chicken, fresh green bean salad with mint, caponata, oven-roasted tomatoes, peppers and juicy olives. Bar the contemporary surroundings, you feel as though you could be dining at a Roman feast.

When you're ready to move on (after all, this is Italian dining, so it feels only right to sit back and linger over your meal), the pan-fried fillet of sea bass with tomato salsa and sautéed potatoes is magnificent. Follow this healthy, light fare with a bit of indulgence; the cioccolato fondente - a warm chocolate pudding with almonds and Kahlua, served with vanilla ice cream - will leave you grinning from ear to ear. Likewise, the prices are sure to please, with starters priced from £4.60, mains from £7.50 and desserts from £3.75. And with wine starting at £12.95 a bottle, and prosecco available for just £4.60 a glass, it would seem wrong not to indulge in a tipple or two.

Every Carluccio's has its own foodshop, stocked with beautifully packaged specialist artisan products sourced from small, family producers all over Italy. Here you will find top-quality regional olive oils and vinegars, classic pasta sauces, tasty crostini spreads, the very best quality dried pasta and risotto rice, plus speciality biscuits and irresistible chocolates, truffles, sweets and nougat. Carluccio's foodshops are the destination of choice for food lovers wanting to create an Italian feast at home or looking for gifts for their fellow foodies. At Easter and Christmas you'll find some gorgeous products and gifts in store which you won't find anywhere else.

Last but not least, visit the deli and choose from an enticing selection of fresh Italian produce including Parma ham, salamis, cheeses, olives and tarts, as well as freshly made sandwiches, salads and other dishes to take away.
