I was in Carluccio's recently and was hugely impressed by their Menu della Casa for E11.95. This includes a choice of two starters, choice of two pastas and an espresso/cappucino/latte. For an additional E4.95, you can also enjoy a large glass of house wine.
This menu represents great value for money and portions aren't small either. The ravioli were simply divine and gluten-free pasta is available on request for those that want it. Two thumbs up to Carluccio's.
