THE godfather of Italian cuisine Antonio Carluccio made a flying visit to Notts for the official opening of his latest restaurant.
Invited guests toasted the arrival of Carluccio's, in Central Avenue, West Bridgford, last night.
The 77-year-old cookery writer, who owns 80 other restaurants in the UK - including one on Low Pavement in the city centre - and who starred in BBC2's Two Greedy Italians, said: 'It looks like a very active town. I like life more down to earth.'
He said the secret of Italian food was simplicity and taste.
'With a few ingredients, you can really create something,' he said. 'I have a motto - 'mof mof cuisine', which stands for minimum of fuss, maximum of flavour.'
The new restaurant, which includes a shop and deli, will be open throughout the day for breakfast, coffee and pastries, light lunches and dinner.
Rushcliffe Mayor Councillor Brian Buschman said: 'This restaurant will be good for the area as a lot of young people now have their evenings in West Bridgford rather than going up to the city.'
