    We hold an annual meeting in Chicago and Carlucci's is the only place I will book! They had us back for the second year in a row and we already know we are booking again next year. We had a party of 15, so service times are expected to be lengthy, but the food was OUTSTANDING!!!! You will not be sorry you try Carlucci's!!!! See you next year!

    I was in the area on business and selected Carlucci's since it was near my hotel near O'Hare. The service was attentive and helpful. I wanted a light dinner and selected a special of the day which was swordfish with scallops and vegetables. It was very tasty and not heavy and I would recommend it again. The restaurant was crowded on a Monday night so a reservation is suggested.

    We visited at five on a Sunday evening. Perhaps because of time of our visit, there were only a handful of customers, resulting in wonderful personalized service. My husband and I both enjoyed the food. I am a red sauce perfectionist, frequently making my own, and their red sauce was better. This is rare. The setting was also designed with perfect male and female decor tastes considered...nice

    This place has good atmosphere with average food. I ordered the gnocchi con filettino alla pizzaiola and found it to be average at best and very expensive for a pasta dish ($25). Specifically, the gnocchi was bland as was the beef, and I didn't taste any mushrooms. My friends also ordered pasta dishes and would agree on both accounts. On a previous visit, I ordered the linguine con prosciutto di parma e basilico and that was a better choice but still expensive for pasta. I would go again; however, I would order an appetizer as a meal.

  • Great food too noisy for business

    Dined on 9/24/2014
    Dining Room too noisy for important business meeting! OTable reservation:clear direction: "an important business meeting between 2 CEOs and their staff." 4 of 6 guests arrived at bar at 6:45p.m. and there were very noisy people drinking so we could not talk or hear each other, noisy bar.Then the dining room was 3/4 occupied, was still very very loud. During dinner, 1 CEO apologized to our round table for having to scream to be heard. But the other CEO said "No, I can't hear unless you speak loudly." For an important business meeting, the restaurant was way too noisy and loud, a real distraction for our 6 person business dinner. We had a very nice super tuscan wine, a good value as well! or business, I will go to nearby Rosewood instead.

    I was somewhat let down by my experience at Carlucci. I viewed the menu online, and figured that the food would be spectacular, since it was rather pricey. The appetizer and main course were ok (bruschetta and frutti de mare). The "sauce" in the frutti de mare was so abundant, that it was more like a seafood soup with pasta thrown in. The dining room is crammed with an abundance of tables, leaving little room for moving around. I was bumped pretty hard, twice by the staff. The hostess seemed to anticipate this, as she suggested that my friend sit on the other side of the table. This is NOT the place for a quiet dinner. It got so loud at one point it was difficult to converse. The tiramisu was delish, and free thanks to an online coupon!

    This was my first time to Carlucci's and it did not disappoint! My friend and I valet parked (it's complimentary) - I didn't look very hard to find out where you can self park but the valet was super convenient. The hostesses were friendly and honored my request of a booth (requested using Open Table notes). The food was wonderful - we each had a salad and, for the meal, I had the Bolognese and my friend had the Risotto special. They had a concise selection of wine (I always find it hard to choose when there are 4+ pages of wines) and went with the Malbec (x2!). Overall, a great dining experience and well worth the $50/person tab when you include drinks.

    Went there for dinner before a concert at the Rosemont Theatre. Ordered the calamari and salad as starters. Kids had the Mac cheese; adults ordered the braised beef pasta and the Parmesan, prosciutto pinwheel entrees, which were delicious. Bonus was that the concierge arranged transportation to the concert venue and back to the restaurant, so we did not have to deal with concert traffic. Thanks for a wonderful evening.

    If you need a solid pick near the airport to meet clients this is a good option. The menu is surprisingly narrow and for whatever reason they don't make linguini with clams (a staple in any Italian joint) which is frustrating BUT the food is usually good as is the table service. Very reasonably priced too.

    Not exceptional, but okay. Service was a little slow towards the end, we were left with dessert menus for about 15-18 minutes, then getting the bill took another 10, etc... Some might think that not unusual, but we all were fairly vocal about not wanting dessert. During the meal the service was fine, but we were there an unnecessary 25-30 minutes more than need be. The food was very serviceable, everyone enjoyed their food, but no one was blown away by their meal.

    It was acceptable. The Calamari was a bit over cooked but tasty. The Risotto special with sea food was not what we expected per the description. Was expecting a tomato based sauce but instead was based on the squid I assume since it was purple in color. It was ok but not sure it was worth the price.

    It was a little hard to find Carlucci's but it was well worth it. Our visit started with superior staff greeting us quickly and courteously. We were immediately brought to our table where our excellent and attentive server made sure we had drinks and a wine list. This is a restaurant that understands proper table service. Bread, wine, salads and dinner were all served in succession at just the right pace. Our waiter was always around and making sure that we were satisfied without being obtrusive. The food was delicious. It was prepared properly and all of our dishes had a lovely presentation. We had excellent espresso for dessert and then were greeted warmly at the door as we left. It was truly an excellent dining experience.

    Ihad not been to Carlucci for years. It was even better than I remembered. We were warmly greeting by our server Roberto. He was sweet and very knowledgeable. The wine and cocktail offerings are now available to view via IPad. How fun was that! Interesting cocktail selections. Good wine list. Dinner menu was vast....something for everyone. I ordred spinach salad and veal dish.....was looking for a side and Roberto suggested vegetable rissota (yum). Was very full and satisfied, but my dinner companion wanted a little something for dessert. We again relied on Roberto's suggestion....and again Yum. Maitre D stopped by to check on us.....was very much like a family dinner. We were very well fed and taken served.

    I am in Rosemont once or twice a year usually for 3 to 7 days and I've been to Carlucci's a few times in the past and always thought it was overpriced and the service was a bit "snobby". I hadn't been there in a number of years but when another restaurant never returned our call we decided to go to Carluccii. Saturday night the experience was different. Great food, great service, everything was outstanding. And I thought that the prices were reasonable. I'll be back next year.
