LondOntheInside went along to Carluccio’s in St Pancras to check out its offerings. The restaurant was jam packed, even the tables outside were all taken.
Westarted with a glass of Prosecco, whilst we debated on what to eat. The menu isn’t huge but there are a good selection of Italian dishes on offer. We shared a bread tin and the Tortino di Tonno, homemade tuna and caper fishcake with garlic mayonnaise. The fish cake was a good size, full of tasty filling and the garlic mayonnaise was punchy just how we like it. We were expecting two but we obviously didn’t read the menu properly.
For mains we went for the Lasagna and Sea Bream, the Lasagna was the clear winner. A tasty, stodgy, rich dish just like Lasagna should be, perfect for Winter. The Seam Bream was a nice piece of fish although it had herb flavour we couldn’t quite put our finger on and weren’t keen on it. The accompanying tomato salsa was a nice touch, full of juicy, ripe tomatoes.
For dessert we had the Pasticcio Di Cioccolato, Chocolate Bread and Butter Pudding and the Panna Cotta. Both were great choices, the Panna Cotta was soft and silky with the added kick of rum and candied orange.
By the time we left we were absolutely stuffed! We really enjoyed our meal, the service was excellent and the atmosphere was bustling. We like Carluccio’s and we will go back, it’s a nice spot for a date and it’s not badly priced either. Ours came in at under £55. Not bad considering we were still full the next day.
