... has many restaurants in the UK, though this is the first one we have come across. We each ordered Pasta Carbonara, a dish that we first tasted in Rome in 1985. That dish was very rich. This one at Carluccio's was delicious. It was light and fresh and the bacon amazingly crispy. Just the thing on a rainy day.
And so back to our flat to pack up. What a trip it has been. A week in the UK, 3 1/2 weeks ...
