The All-Day menu will feature Antipasti through to Secondi (with gluten free available), all with Antonio Carluccio’s MOF MOF (minimum of fuss, maximum of flavour) at the heart.

Open daily for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks, the team will be observing strict social distancing and safety measures to ensure all adults and bambinos alike have the safest and most enjoyable experience possible.

Expect hand sanitising stations, a reduced number of tables and surfaces sanitised every 30 minutes, with the same friendly and familiar Carluccio’s service.
