Shopping malls are not my favourite places for restaurants, but Carluccios is a bit different because in the outside area on the marina promenade you don't feel as though you're in a mall.

The food is excellent and as you would expect is authentically Italian. There's a good variety of dishes including snacks, pasta, salads and main courses. Seafood features in many of the dishes.


Favorite Dish: A favourite Italian dish for me is osso bucco and I was pleased to find it on the menu at Carluccio's. As it should be it's served with rissoto rice. Geina's a seafood fan and she particularly likes the spaghetti alle vongole in bianco, that's clams with garlic, herbs & chilli. She also likes the rice-balls, arancini. And we both enjoy the good old Italian favourite, fettucini with meat balls.
