The menu will feature a showstopping Lasagne di Natale
Carluccio’s Solihull will be giving some of its favourite Italian classics a thoroughly festive makeover with its new Speciali Festivi menu, available nationwide from November 17th - the perfect destination for your festive celebrations this season.
FESTIVE DINING… THE ITALIAN WAY
Bursting with seasonal Italian dishes created with impeccably sourced ingredients, the menu will feature a showstopping Lasagne di Natale; a festive lasagne made with turkey mince, pork stuffing, and sautéed brussels sprouts all tucked between layers of fresh egg pasta.
It’s Christmas dinner, but not as you know it!
Other suitably seasonal mains include an indulgent Butternut Squash and Artichoke Risotto (V) and Saltimbocca di Pollo al Vin Santo, chicken breast with 24-month aged Parma ham, sage and a rich Vin Santo cream sauce, served with rosemary and garlic roast potatoes.
There’s also deliziosa starters of Duck and Chestnut Bruchetta – think chestnut purée and red onion marmalade topped with confit duck, rocket, spinach, pickled cranberries and toasted hazelnuts served on a toasted Ciabatta – and an indulgent Cream of Celeriac Soup (VG) served with shaved chestnuts and a truffle oil drizzle.
Here at Niche we don't believe desserts aren’t an afterthought, with a Mince Pie Panna Cotta and Panettone Bread and Butter Pudding providing the festive finale in true Italian style.
Perfect for family festivities and Christmas parties alike, the festive menu is available in all Carluccio’s restaurants from November 17th and is priced at £21.50 and £26.50 for two and three courses respectively.
