Food Review: Carluccio's

We went to Carluccio's over the weekend. I will cut to the chase and just post come pictures okay since that is what a good blogger would do.

Chocolate hazelnut Danish from the front deli. Nothing fantastic to write about except that it has a liberal amount of chocolate in it and is average priced.

Penne alla Luganica, featuring tubes of pasta and a layer of spicy sausage sauce. Distinctively average and nothing fantastic about it.

This Penne Giardiniera is something different and not common. Giant Pugliese penne with courgette chilli and fantastic deep-fried spinach balls with parmesan and garlic. A snip at £6.75. I would recommend this to anyone.

Portions were pretty average as far as Italian meals goes and it seems that some of the pasta isn't that special - a common trait of chain Italians. We were lucky I guess. Too bad the furnishing sucks.
