Half Term is fast approaching, so it’s great to have some ideas for family friendly dining in Ealing. We love to eat out in West London and one of our firm favourites is Carluccio’s Ealing – local Italian Restaurant & Deli. It has been one of our go to places, ever since Amelia was born. Eating out with children can be stressful, as we all know especially if your child is making lots of noise or is not keen to sit at the table. I think as parents we have all been there! However, if you are in an environment that caters for children, then the whole experience is a lot more relaxed for everyone! The Ealing branch of Carluccio’s was refurbished last year and as you will see from my photos it certainly is stylish with a warm and friendly atmosphere.
Carluccio’s have recently re-vamped their children’s menu, which I have to say I now actually prefer, because there are more options. For £6.25 your child can have two courses including a drink and for £7.50 you can increase that to three courses. My Daughter is six years old and I would say the portion sizes are more than adequate for her appetite.
Amelia is a budding restaurant critic too and has done a little write up here! She really enjoyed the new kid’s menu as you can see!
One of the choices of starter includes cucumber, carrots and celery sticks with a tomato sauce dip, children also get bread sticks too! A brilliant way to get one of their 5 a day!
The main course, along with the usual pasta options also includes: chicken or fish with vegetables, however Amelia when back to her favorite of pasta with a tomato sauce.
Carluccio’s has all the usual child friendly facilities that you would expect, such as baby changing facilities, highchairs and even child sized cutlery which make eating all that bit easier. Plus there is colouring and crayons to hand to keep them occupied. The other thing I like about this restaurant is that the tables are not too close together, so if you wanted to bring your pram then likelihood is there will be room nearby.
At the rear of the restaurant the tables can be set up for a larger family gathering or party. Just enquire at the restaurant and I’m sure they will be happy to help.
They have a wonderful selections of cakes and sweet treats, so you could also just come in for afternoon tea!
Plus, don’t forget if you are looking for a romantic Valentines Day meal than you better be quick to get booked in! From the 13th until the 16th February they are offering a special Valentine’s set menu three course for £22.95.
Carluccio’s have lovely selection of gifts available from their Deli and in-store shop. You will find ingredients to make your perfect romantic Italian evening at home also!
You can find your local Carluccio’s at: 5-6 The Green, Ealing, London, W5 5DA.
