St. Valentine’s Day originated in Italy, and is known as ‘La FestaDegliInnamorati’ – meaning ‘feast of lovers’. Embracing all things Italian and remaining true to its roots, Carluccio’s has pulled out all the stops this Valentine’s with a dinner full of indulgent ingredients from lobster and prawns through to ossobuco and sirloin steak.
Between 12 – 16 February, enjoy a magical evening at Carluccio’s, which puts romance at the very heart of the meal, at £24.95 for three courses and a glass of sparkling rosé. There’s also an array of beautifully packaged gifts including chocolates, wines and biscuits such as ‘Baci di Dama’ (‘ladies kisses’) – a traditional Valentine’s gift.
Your candlelit supper kicks off with a glass of Santa Sara sparkling rosé, delicious with antipasti dishes such as Cacio e Pepe Fritti, crispy fried ravioli filled with Ricotta & Pecorino Romano and black pepper; Antonio Carluccio’s classic chicken liver pâté; or FrittoMisto with crispy squid rings and prawns.
Mains, featuring impeccably sourced ingredients, include Chicken Saltimbocca, Ossobuco Alla Milanese and the plant-based Spinaci Tagliatelle Ragu. A must-try, worthy of your Instagram feed, is the Lobster & Prawn Linguine with Samphire, served in a crab, white wine, and chilli sauce, whilst decadent desserts include a sharing board of chocolates from Carluccio’s deli and dark chocolate dipped strawberries as well as a classic Tiramisu with Savoiardi biscuits.
