Carluccio's welcomes shoppers and diners alike in search of genuine, affordable Italian cuisine and ingredients. The first Carluccio's caffè opened with the aim to provide great quality, authentic Italian food at sensible prices with an informal but excellent service. Carluccio's are noisy about food... They taste it, try it, argue about it, until it is exactly right. They do not use mozzarella unless it is made from Buffalo milk as the taste is never the same. They do not buy focaccia bread, they make it by hand every day. It is the Italian way - it is how they have worked since 1999.
