Reasons for trip

Although there were a couple of options for food and drink at Heathrow’s Terminal 4, we chose “Caruluccio’s”:https://www.carluccios.com/all-restaurants/ before our “Air Serbia flight”:https://www.silvertraveladvisor.com/review/airline/197361-review-air-serbia. It was very quiet, and we were given a choice of seats in the light and airy restaurant. As it was just before 11am, we had a choice of choosing from either the breakfast or lunch “menu”:https://www.carluccios.com/menu/. As we were hoping not to eat again until the evening, we wanted something more than eggs benedict style dishes but not a huge plate of pasta. A sharing board seemed ideal and of the two available, we chose the meat one at £17.95. Whilst waiting we had a glass of prosecco and with our food, a bottle of Pinot Grigio at a reasonable £19.95.

The platter was served on a long wooden board on legs and had a fabulous array of various types of meat, parmesan chunks, bruschetta with chicken liver pate topped with caramelised onions, caponata, caper berries, cherry tomatoes filled with pesto, green beans, black and green olives. We’d asked about a side of bread and the bread tin had been recommended as it came with garlic focaccia, brown bread and a crisp bread. It was all delicious, and we really savoured each aspect. Fortunately, as it wasn’t busy the waiter joined the adjacent table onto ours, as the board was so long and had to be placed at an angle.

The service was excellent with the waiter asking if we wanted the wine when we’d finished our prosecco and topping up our glasses of tap water. When plates were cleared, he was amazed we’d finished it all and said that there was usually a little something left.

Coffee and desserts were offered but we were far too full. The bill came to £53 without service.

A screen in the restaurant allowed us to monitor departure progress.
