  • Fantastic dining experience
    OpenTable Diner Since 2003
    Dined on 11/22/2014
    I was looking for a place to take my wife for our 28th wedding anniversary. We received an ad in the mail which presented the quality of food & ambiance I was looking for. I went to their website and was directed to Open Table to make a reservation. There were no problems finding a table for the time I wanted. Open Table also allowed me to make a special request (romantic seating) and to order flowers to be delivered to the restaurant. When we arrived, the front parking lot was full, but they did have complimentary Valet parking. The entrance was elegant, but not overly so. We were received warmly & I could see that my flowers had arrived & were behind the reception area. The receptionist indicated it would be a few minutes until our table was ready & suggested we wait in the bar, which was very nice, not overly crowded or noisy & had very friendly bartenders. We only drank about 1/2 of a glass of wine before our table was ready. We were seated at a quite table next to the window and the flowers had been placed there surreptitiously and very pleasantly surprised my wife. Our lovely young waitress Jasmine was wonderful! She was enthusiastic but not overly attentive and allowed us to have a romantic, slow dining experience. The food was marvelous, but very reasonably priced, especially considering the presentation & quality. The atmosphere was also excellent, with a fantastic guitar player performing a light, jazzy set with some interesting song selections that few but the serious music lover would even recognize (including several Django Reinhardt cuts and an amazing version of Nirvana's "Heart Shaped Box"). All-in-all this was one of the finest dining experiences my wife & I have ever had. Go see for yourself.

    We needed an additional 10 minutes for our table but it was worth it. We have never been there on a Saturday, but it was worth the wait. The food was out standing! The waiter was okay, busy as one might expect. I would definitely recommend a return visit.

    The Braciole was excellent, the prime rib was succulent. The canolies were outstanding. The sangria was a little off it's usual mark, but entirely drinkable. The service was good, not outstanding, but an evening at Carlucci's is always worthwhile.

    We visited Carlucci's to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We sat outside for the view, but it was a little breezy and chilly. Service started out slow, but was fine for the remainder of the meal. Food was very good, as usual, and the prices were reasonable. We've dined at this location many times and have always had a good experience

    My husband, daughter and son-in-law recently dined at Carluccis for Sunday late lunch. I was a little taken back as we walked in and the dining room had white linen tablecloths and the guests were in their Sunday best clothing. We had asked to be seated outdoors and even though I was dressed in jeans, I felt very comfortable. Service was very attentive, we had a variety of meals from salads to the gnocchi Aurora, which I loved. My husband had the chicken terriyaki kabobs and it was delicious. The kids had salads that they enjoyed very much and soup that they liked as well. The drink menu was good wiyh a lot to choose from. The outdoor area was so relaxing and we enjoyed the water views. We are already planning our next visit.

    I am so shock most Italian foods come from frozen box or jar. I can tell because I taste it. Also shrimps are real bad taste! They never cook any homemade foods. Many people love go there because it's very nice view over river.

    My first visit here included a fried calamari appetizer, tossed salad, and a scallop in white wine sauce with mixed veggies and linguine. The appetizer was good. Calamari was not rubbery. Tossed salad was average. The entree included 5 scallops, 2 small pieces of broccoli, and some mushrooms all in a terrible salty sauce, that should've been a white wine/butter sauce. This was of course over an ample serving of linguine. I'm not one to make a scene and send food back. And to be honest, I was starving. It was just a mediocre meal. Could've gotten the same or better quality at the OG, and for half the price! Patio outside was nice, but at times there was a swamp smell wafting over to the table. Outside is very outdated. Screaming makeover!

    If you like outdoor dining you won't find a more attractive place within 25 miles. We ate inside because of the weather but the large glass windows gave us the feeling of being outside anyway and close to the attractive and smoothly flowing river. The food we chose, lasagna with rice pudding for dessert, was very good. A good wine list too. But a tip: if you're going there for dinner, as we were, eat a VERY light lunch. The servings were generous. Our server was outstanding - knowledgeable and helpful. We left with doggie bags so were able to enjoy 'seconds' the next day. And memories of a great all-around evening. If you haven't already had the pleasure of eating at Carlucci's Waterfront you should definitely check it out.

We waited almost 25 min to get our soup and salad and then almost 15 min to get our check. But we still love it there, just have to know if you go there to not be in a rush and be patient.

It rained like cats and dogs but we still had a wonderful time. My son was amused watching everyone getting wet and picking up their food and still keep eating. We will be back for sure.

    My friend and I were in the area and saw an advertisement for Carlucci's, we decided to give it a go. It was a pleasantly good experience. The food was above average. The wait service was also good. No complaints, but we wouldn't rush back. The hostess seemed happier that we were leaving (at the end of our experience) more so than when we arrived. Very odd, but noticeable.

    They sat us for a reservation quickly, and I was excited to be able to sit outside under the tent, since it was drizzling. That was the best part of the meal, where we sat. The calamari, all rings, was very chewy and rubbery. Our soup and salad was very delayed, larger parties of diners who had arrived after us, ordered after us, had received their entrées when we were simply receiving our salad and soup. I had the scallops and vegetables. I only ate two of the scallops, after biting into the first it tasted like a chemical cleaner had been sprayed... And I confirmed it with the second. My date had cheese ravioli. The sauce was nothing more than a thick white coating. It was bland and tasteless.

Plenty of parking and easy to get to location. The only negative was the ladies room. Only one toilet worked and the stall door didn't work and there was no toilet tissue. But other than that, a good experience!
