I’ve never been to Carluccos’s before but I was expecting to be much like any other Italian. I was right, it was, but in a very good way. You can’t beat a good Italian! So sit back, relax, and read on to see what I went for.
I always judge how good a restaurant is on how well they make a lasagne so, because I’d never been here before, I had to get the lasagne. I was very impressed. It looked a bit strange when it came, as you can see in the picture it looks a bit sloppy and like it was just dumped in the bowl, but that didn’t effect how amazing it tasted. There was the perfect ratio of white sauce to bolognese and it was really tasty. The portion size was perfect and the pasta was a nice thickness, because believe it or not I’ve had some very thick lasagne pasta in my time! I’d definitely order this lasagne again, which is a very high compliment coming from me.
I really fancied a dessert that wasn’t too filling but that was a little more than just ice cream so I went for tiramisu. I liked this but I felt that there was a little bit too much alcohol in the sponge, especially the sponge at the bottom, making it very hard to stomach. The cream was delicious though and I just ended up scraping it off and just eating that, although I did eat a fair bit of the sponge. It was very tasty but I think that the alcohol was the main problem.
