Carluccio's is a fancy chain of Italian cafe's with food stores/deli's attached. Really modern looking, they are a great place for lunch or dinner, or even just to meet up with a friend for coffee and a treat.

They have stores popping up all over London, all based on the same formula and with pretty much the same menu. Their deli and shop section is excellent, with plenty of tasty treats and gifts on offer, with some particularly nice Christmas gift ideas.

They have quite a large menu, with italian style breakfasts, pastas and meat dishes to tempt all.

I am a regular at Carluccios. It is one of my favourite places to go for a coffee and a little treat. I will pop in there by myself if I am out shopping, and love to meet up with friends there too for a coffee and a gossip.

Favorite Dish: Their coffee is normally very good, and they have some great cakes - I do love their Lemon Tart and the Orange & Polenta Cake is delicious too

If we go for lunch I am usally tempted by the Lasagne or the Milanese di Pollo, and perhaps a cheeky glass of Italian red or just a mineral water.

Service is normally friendly but can be slow at times and mistakes happen.
