Me and my mam like to go shopping every Saturday and we always make a full day of it by going early in the morning so we can shop, lunch and then shop some more.
One Saturday a couple of weeks ago me and my mam were invited to carluccios in the Metrocentre for lunch. We turned up to the restaurant (which is based inbetween House of Fraser and primark ) an hour earlier than we were booked in because we stupidly hadn't turned our watches back an hour and we didn't even realise until we got home so sorry about that Carluccios!

The good thing about the restaurant is that there is an outdoor seating area and an inside seating area with a little shop which sells food bits and bobs.

Anyway we got there and ordered drinks and food and sat back to people watch (which is the best hobby ever) which was followed by the lovely gentleman bringing us bread and olive oil with balsamic vinegar & olives.

Then our actual starters arrived which were bloody lovely! I had pate with caramelized onions and my mother had calamari. Another drink later ( who doesn't love a midday tipple) and our mains were here, i had steak whilst my mam had a seafood pasta. She absolutely loved hers as she is a fish lover, so she was delighted to see it had lots of fish in. I had the steak which comes with rosemary chips which are bloody good!

The waiter made our trip so pleasant because he totally looked after us and it was a case of he looked after our table and no one else which i find really good because they get to know your table and makes it easier to order drinks as he just had to signal to us if we wanted another drink and he knew what we wanted.

Anyway mains ate and now it was dessert time. We were far too full to manage one but with all the options we couldn't leave without getting one to take home. I got the brownie which was OMG to die for. It has hazelnuts on the top which ahhh made it even better. I was eating it two days later because you only needed a little bit to satisfy your needs.

I cant wait to head back there and get another brownie!

Have you been to Carluccio's before?
