About Us

kneading fresh pizza bread dough


Antonio & Priscilla opened their food shop in Neal Street, bringing the finest quality regional Italian food to London. They wrote each label by hand & explored the length & breadth of Italy to find the best ingredients.

In 1999, they opened the first Carluccio’s Caffe in Market Place, London – an authentic Italian restaurant in the truest sense of the word, and a continuation of their successful food shop.

Their aim was to provide great quality, authentic Italian food at sensible prices, and to provide informal but excellent service to customers.

That aim remains the same today. We cook by Antonio’s motto, MOF MOF. Minimum of fuss, maximum of flavour.

Today, we serve customers across 30 restaurants in the UK, Ireland & the Middle East. In the Middle East, we have three restaurants in the UAE and two in Qatar.
