We love Italian food and with the Summer Holidays nearly over, we needed to make the most of the fabulous offer Carluccio’s are running until September 3rd: Kids eat for £1 – this means a starter, main, dessert and drink all for £1. It’s a great deal, especially, if like us, you are running a bit low on funds towards the end of Summer! Here’s what we chose…
We visited the Cambridge branch of Carluccio’s and it was nice to sit inside as it was super hot outside. We finished off our chilled Bank Holiday weekend off with a bang!
The kids menu
The kiddies love Italian food, infant Isla’s favourite meal is Spaghetti with cheese. She would eat plain Spaghetti for every meal if she had the choice. She is a little carb machine, as she burns it off so quickly. Noah too loves his pasta and Italian dishes.
First up the kiddies had some bread sticks with an Italian tomato sauce to dip them in, this was perfect as both kids were so hungry. They then had a Lasagne and Spaghetti with tomato sauce. Noah ate his meal so quickly, he absolutely loved it. I love the little frothy milk that came out with their dessert too – those little cups are so cute.
The grown ups menu
There was so much to choose from, as a vegetarian that is quite a feat! I usually have one option, or there is one vegetarian and one vegan. However, I had over 5 options to choose from. It was great. I had my favourite drink of the Summer too – a Aperol Spritz. Delicious!
I had Scamorza Arancini, which was a vegetarian version of Arancini. It is absolutely delicious. Little balls of rice with spinach and smoked mozzarella. Definitely recommend this.
For my main I chose Mushroom Risotto as it is my absolute favourite meal (I think) and I wanted to try this version. It was incredible. I loved all of the different mushrooms and their flavours, I am just gutted I forgot to add the truffle oil! Hubby had the Seabass and said it was delicious; delicate and tasted full of flavours.
We had yummy desserts; I had chocolate bread and butter pudding (one of my favourites) and Hubby had Tiramisu which looked great. They were presented perfectly. I love food that looks pretty – do you know what I mean?
Kids eat for £1
Here’s a little more about the deal – This Summer (until 3rd September 2019) children eating from the kids menu eat for £1. Under 10s can enjoy a delicious main dish, dessert and a soft drink, all for just £1 with every adult main ordered. The kids’ menu features a choice of classic Italian family favourites including lasagne, ham and pea risotto, and rotelle pasta with choice of pesto, meatballs, tomato or cheese sauce.
To finish, bambinos can pick from a refreshing apple and blackcurrant ice lolly or choose from a selection of sorbets and ice creams. I love the fact they had tasty and healthy options for the kiddies.
The kiddies also get a fabulous Carluccio’s activity pack too; full of activities. They had lots of different pasta shapes on a page, which we all found interesting. I saw pasta that I have never seen before. They had to draw their dinner – or what they thought it would look like and colour in. It’s great as it keeps them entertained whilst they wait for their food.
Do you have a Carluccio’s near you? Have you tried it? What do you think? I would love to know in the comments below or on social media: @mummyconstant.
