Carluccio's first ‘new generation’ restaurant outside London will be opening in Bondholder intu this coming Monday.
Complete with communal kitchen table, diners will be able to watch the chefs in action creating dishes from scratch using recipes by Antonio Carluccio.
The full menu will highlight dishes ‘from the deli’ and ‘from the kitchen’, including ‘Antonio Carluccio Signature Dishes’ - celebrating the simple joys of real Italian dining.
The Derby restaurant will also be only the third Carluccio’s in the UK to serve pizza, with four varieties available.
Located in the West Mall, next to the Food Court, Carluccio's will be open for breakfasts, lunches, dinners and everything in between. You will also be able to collect fresh grab and go meals, antipasti and beautifully-packaged artisan gifts and cooking supplies.
Neil Wickers, chief executive of Carluccio's, said:"The premise is to emphasise and enhance the things that make Carluccio's stand out from the crowd – its suppliers, fresh dishes made on site and a unique combination of restaurant, shop and deli.
John Forkin, Managing Director of Marketing Derby — which has been making the business case for Carluccio's locating to Derby for the past few years — commented: "We've been working for some time to bring this prestigious brand into Derby and are delighted they have chosen the city for their new concept."
