Carluccio's has opened its doors in Colchester.
Carluccio's Restaurant and Food Shop on the second floor is the perfect pit stop for breakfast, a light lunch or late afternoon refreshment.
This is authentic Italian food at its very best in an easy-going, upbeat environment. Choose from a wide range of dishes – the freshest salads, classic pasta dishes, mouthwatering main courses – with daily specials to ring the changes.
There's a children's menu to keep the kids happy and even a gluten-free menu for those with an intolerance or allergy.
All the focaccia is made by hand and the gelati artiginale – ice cream the way only the Italians do it – are heaven sent.
The adjoining Food Shop is packed with high quality Italian produce and customers are more than welcome to take home a bottle of olive oil, a bag of carnaroli rice or a box of amaretti to nibble on the way home.
