About Antonio Carluccio

Antonio Carluccio, the Godfather of Italian food, is widely recognized as one of Italy's greatest food ambassadors. Having moved to London in 1975, Antonio set up and ran the Neal Street Restaurant and spent 10 years developing the hugely successful Carluccio's restaurants. In 1998, he was awarded the title of Commendatore by decree of the President of Italy for his knowledge, enthusiasm and lifetime's service to the Italian food industry, and in 2007 he received the OBE. He has written eighteen bestselling books, and made numerous television programmes - the latest being the second series of the enormously successful Two Greedy Italians series.
