Get ready, Leamington Spa – a brand new concept from everyone’s favourite Italian restaurant group, Carluccio’s, is being trialled in your town on 24th June! Introducing the very first Carluccio’s Counter, opening in your local Sainsbury’s superstore at Shires Retail Park. If you can’t go on holiday to Italy, then let a slice of Italian gastronomy come to you!
Brand new and first of its kind, Carluccio’s has reimagined the supermarket deli so customers can enjoy its signature Italian dishes and artisan produce more easily for home.
On offer is an array of the brand’s signature store cupboard ingredients, impeccably sourced from the length and breadth of Italy. Specialist items include Puglian penne regine and orecchiette durum wheat pastas, spreadable nduja salami from Calabria, and riso Carnaroli risotto rice, sourced from the Po Valley in Northern Italy. There’s also an extensive range of extra virgin olive oils, including Evoo, Due Sorelle from Sardinia and Olio al Limone, a zesty lemon oil exclusive to Carluccio’s as well as handmade chocolate truffles, grissini and torcetti biscuits. No Carluccio’s offering would be complete without coffee and the Counter offers two bespoke Italian blends, ground and beans.
Also available is a range of freshly made dishes perfect for a take-away lunch or family meal at home. Handcrafted pasta bakes and rotisserie chicken sit alongside 12” hand stretched, stone-baked Neapolitan pizzas made fresh to order and available ready to eat, cold or as an at home kit. Choose from toppings including prosciutto e fungi, Italian salami, chicken picante or build your own. The range will also be available to order for delivery via Deliveroo, Uber Eats and Just Eat.
The launch of the Counter follows the opening of Caffè Carluccio’s in St Albans earlier this month and is part of a wider trial between Sainsbury’s and Carluccio’s – a third concept will open in Selly Oak, Birmingham next month.
Carluccio’s Counter – a true taste of Italy in the heart of Leamington Spa.
