So here you go my fellow foodies, a guide to a few of our top picks for places to eat in Loughborough – enjoy!
Step Into Italy At The Caravelli
The Italians know how to eat. When you head to pretty much any Italian restaurant you can be guaranteed of at least a few cuisine basics; very generous portions, plenty of garlic and fresh tomatoes, and a laid back atmosphere. Caravelli is no exception to the rule. A family run restaurant that combines great traditional Italian food and wine with a friendly atmosphere, this is a restaurant that knows how to please.
Since it is located in one of the oldest buildings in Loughborough, in fact dating right back to the fourteenth century, you’ll be greeted with a sense of charm and ambiance that can only come with age.
Just to whet your appetite for the menu you can expect some exquisite dishes ranging from pasta and risottos (with a hot option for anyone daring) to seafood, meat, and poultry. For guests who don’t care much for dessert, the cheese and biscuits should make the perfect, ‘after dinner’, treat.
