Carluccio's is an Italian restaurant chain founded in London in 1999.

In 1991, Antonio Carluccio and his then wife opened an Italian food shop, named Carluccio's. They expanded this in 1994 to a wholesale business.

In 1999, the first "Carluccio's Caffè" was opened in Market Place, London. An Italian restaurant with integrated food shop, the premises opened to serve light, Italian-based breakfasts to diners. The chain expanded, initially across southeast England, and subsequently across the UK. In 2005, Carluccio's listed on the Alternative Investment Market as a PLC. In 2010 the company received a takeover offer from the Landmark Group, a Dubai-based enterprise, valuing Carluccio's at £90m. The transaction was approved by the shareholders and completed in October 2010.

Today, Carluccio's operates from over 95 UK locations. It has granted franchises over three territories: the first over Ireland with presently two locations in Dublin; the second over 6 countries in the Middle East including three locations presently open in Dubai; . and the third in Alexandria in Virginia, United States.
