Do Mother’s Day the Italian way in Terminal 5

Carluccio's traditional tomato bruschettaTravelling through Heathrow Terminal 5 this weekend? Love Italian food? Well here’s a Mother’s Day special offer that’s a treat for the whole family.

Carluccio’s Terminal 5 restaurant is offering a three-course lunch or dinner with a glass of Prosecco from only £22.95 per person – perfect for making your mamma feel special.

The Festa Della Mamma menu is available for the weekend of 10th and 11th March, and includes plenty of classic and modern Italian dishes.


Try traditional tomato bruschetta, Sicilian arancini and an antipasto sharing board piled high with Sardinian flatbreads, caper berries, mixed olives, salami, pepperoncini peppers (filled with pesto and mint) and garlic marinated green beans and caponata.


The main menu includes a Carluccio’s favourite – risotto ai funghi – and a vegan orecchiette pasta tossed in cauliflower sauce, served with sautéed kale, and chilli and turmeric cauliflower florets.


Carluccio's pannacottaTo top off your meal, choose from lemon, passionfruit or melon sorbets. Alternatively, opt for an authentic gelato ice cream (flavours include chocolate, hazelnut, vanilla, strawberry and cherry). Also on the menu are a delicious vanilla pannacotta, a classic tiramisu or a selection of artisan Italian cheeses (£1 supplement).

After your meal, why not treat your mamma to a gift from the deli to take away with her? Choose from indulgent Italian truffles, flavoured oils or a scarlet box of hand-wrapped amaretti biscuits.

Of course, even if you aren’t in Terminal 5, there are plenty more great restaurants where you can spoil your mum. To see what’s available for your journey, check our Heathrow restaurants A-Z page.

Buon Appetito!
