I have several of Carluccio's recipe books, all of which provide inspiration for terrific, tasty meals. The menu that Carluccio created for his eponymous cafes is still the family favourite over other Italian style cafe chains. How wonderful that this recipe collection includes some of those cafe favourites most notably the pasta with courgettes and spinach balls, Penne Giardiniera. Having attempted this dish on my own I can't wait to try the proper recipe. The slight, inevitable, overlap with other books by Carluccio is all that stops me giving the book 5*.

I recently purchased Antonio Carluccio's Simple Cooking and was very, very impressed by this lovely book. All the recipes work, none of them are fiddly or require expensive ingredients and every one I have tried so far has been absolutely delicious. This is a great introduction to simple Italian food and a book that will be getting a lot of use in our kitchen.

If you enjoy italian food but hav'n't got a lot of experience of its preparation this is the book for you. The reipes are wide-ranging and clearly set-out and following them is like having Antonio at your elbow. I have used this collection of recipes nearly every week since I bought it.

This is the first Carluccio book I have bought but having seen him many times on television and been impressed with his recipes I decided to try it. As the title says it is simple cooking but still strong on flavour, all the receipes I have tried, so far, have been easy to execute and turned out well. I would recommend this to people who want quick but good italian food.

If you don't have any Italian cook books or any cook books by Carluccio then this one could be for you, it is a little smaller than A4 size but has plenty of solid recipes in it. My own issue is that 'The Collection' by Antonio Carluccio has nearly all of these recipes and more so if it was up to me I would get 'The Collection'

I love the restaurants - good food at reasonable prices.

I'm working my way through the book and we haven't had a bad meal yet.

Easy to follow & the best mushroom risotto ever!!

The Daily Telegraph published some sample recipes from this book, and they looked good and tempted me to try some. This led to me buying the book, hardback at a very reasonable price. I love Italian food.

As an inexperienced cook I find the simplicity of most of the recipes is an inspiration and invitation to try my luck - mostly successfully.
The Italian version of mushrooms on toast is a revelation.
However, lime syrup cooked until it caramelised produced..........toffee, which was very difficult to pour over mangos.
Taken with a normal commonsense approach, I'm very pleased with results.

The recipes are simple, compared with some italian recipes I have followed in the past. I like the way the book is laid out and his little asides on left-overs. The pasta and vegetable sections are particularly good. This book will definitely be one of my favourites.
