Carluccio's Marylebone

Squaremeal Review of Carluccio's Marylebone ?

Carluccio’s signature blue & white awnings have been brightening up high streets (& boosting house prices) since 1999. These classy-looking caffè/delis are places to use rather than adore, whether for a mid-shopping pit stop or for an impromptu lunch with pals or family. Open all day, they’re a good shout for a pick-me-up espresso or Prosecco (depending how the day’s going). The mid-priced food is ‘reasonably good’ rather than stupendously so, but the chattering classes still pile in for their fix of Puglian olives, wild boar ragù, pasta alla puttanesca & osso bucco milanese. ‘Stick to the simpler stuff’, advises one regular. The produce in the shop is rather more drool-worthy: ‘I would refuse to leave without making a purchase from the deli’, insists one fan. Wise words.

The quiet one......

Carluccio's tends to be my Italian chain restaurant of choice these days. The pasta is always of a high standard and now that I've managed to wean myself away from their sublime sage ravioli (fab, but just not enough for an evening meal and a tad too piggy for a starter!) I've discovered many other delights on their menu. The only issue that let this outpost down was that it was dead as the proverbial, on a somewhat overcast Wednesday evening, so the normal hustle and bustle synonymous...

Very disappointing. We took friends from overseas and were were wanting casual and lively, not formal. Our experience left us embarrassed. There was a group of us and we ordered across the menu. Food was average to say the least – I had the fish which was edible but poorly presented, the salsa was a pile of chopped tomatoes and the potatoes were just biffed on the side. I could have done much better at home. This was pretty much the same for everyone – and there was a lot of food left on our plates....
