Popular Italian restaurant chain Carluccio’s has been our go-to Italian restaurant whenever we are craving authentic Italian food. They recently launched a new menu in City Centre Mirdif branch and we visited them for lunch and tried their new menu.
Carluccio’s regularly introduces special menus and sometimes even a brand new menu. In the new menu, they’ve retained their Italian favorites and added new dishes. They have also upgraded their breakfast section.
The venue is spacious with modern decor. A perfect place to share a delicious Italian meal with family and friends. It is a family-friendly restaurant with ample seating area, a deli and it also has a retail section.
After being seated, we ordered two of their refreshing drinks- Homemade Ginger Ale and Mint Lemonade. We were offered complimentary basket of Bread while we were sipping our drinks.
Whether you’re a vegetarian or a non vegetarian or a pescatarian, Carluccio’s has good options. There is something for everyone. Being vegetarians we were satisfied with their veg options.
The new Potato & Lentil Soup was light, comforting and mildly spicy. it was served with focaccia bread. Next we had the wholesome and tasty Mediterranean Salad. We throughly enjoyed the salad.
For the main course, we had the newly introduced Spinach & Ricotta Ravioli. The ravioli was handmade and filled with spinach and ricotta and topped with cream cheese. It was served with garlic focaccia bread. Their ravioli was our favorite and comes totally recommended.
A visit to Carluccio’s is incomplete without having their delicious pizza. We had ordered Burrata pizza but by mistake they got us the Verdure Pizza. We didn’t want the pizza to go waste and therefore had the verdure pizza. It was okay, but we would have definitely preferred the burrata pizza.
Dessert was a decadent affair and we had their Dessert Platter that consisted of berry panna cotta, tiramisu, profiteroles and brownie with vanilla gelato. All the desserts were amazing. Ended our lunch with a freshly brewed Cappuccino.
Our overall experience was good except for two factors- we were given a dirty table and had to request for a clean one and the other one being the wrong order. Definitely the service needs to be improved.
