    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 Outside is very outdated.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!

    It's getting harder and harder to find restaurants that have outdoor dining areas set up specifically for just eating outside. Carlucci's patio is fantastic! When the weather is right its the place to be to enjoy a romantic dinner on the waterfront. Great find!

    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.

    went for my mom's and my birthdays. We love it there the food is great and the view is wonderful but this time our service was particularily slow. 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.

    Good service and friendly staff. My Caesar salad had too much dressing. Love the calamari and my Snicker bar drinks. My hubby enjoyed his experience too. 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.

    We had the fixed priced meal and there was something for everyone. Food came out in a timely manner and was tasty. Our waiter was great and attentive. 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!

    My coworkers and I recently had lunch outside on the deck to celebrate two birthdays. The stone deck was gorgeous and the view of the Rancocas creek was beautiful. The wait staff was so friendly and made the birthday celebration memorable. On top of wonderful experience of outside dining, the food was delicious. It was a very relaxing lunch and we all talked about coming back with our families.

  • A Melancholy Monday

    Dined on 8/11/2014
    This was a nice place to visit, the ambiance was subtle and quiet. I ordered the prime rib ($40 on the menu) and asked for it to be well-done. It was still pink when it reached me, but I didn't say anything since I was meeting someone here for dinner, and our waiter's personality was very stringent. The only pleasant person in the whole place seemed to be the owner, everyone else I came across or noticed seemed to be in a state of melancholy. Perhaps the mood was related to it being a Monday. I would have to try here again in order to make a better assessment.

    Sunday night. There was a large party that took precedence over regular diners. Most of the eait staff was working the party and only occaisionally came back to the dining room to check on guests. We sat at our table at 6:05pm. Drinks came out quickly. A half hour later we had appetizers. And then the staff disappeared. Salad did not arrive until 7:30. And dinner only after we complained, by 8:15 -2 hrs after we arrived. They comped us dessert which at that point we didnt even want because we were so tired from sitting in chairs not meant for three hours of sitting. By 9pm we were out. I don't blame the waiter he was very nice - the fault goes to management for making the large group the priority. This place is not cheap. We won't be back.

    Food was great, service was so so. We shouldn't have sat for over 5 minutes after he (bob) asked what we wanted to drink. I had to run to the bathroom and I asked my date to make him stay of he showed up while I was gone. This was after waiting 5 minutes already. I came back and he walked away to grab a check from another table. He did come right back but thatnqas rude. After that he was better but I was so close to leaving. We didn't because we already drove a half hour to get there. Again for was great but you experiance could have been better with better service.

    Food was mediocre. I order Chilean Sea Bass, it was a very small piece, there was a part of it that was uncooked, it came with a lot of rice smothered in butter - heart attack on a plate. The best thing was the view, then the bugs started coming and they did not put the tiki lights on until it started to get dark, - it might have kept some of the bugs away if they put them on sooner.No reason to go back except for drinks outside.

    It was a nice night and we enjoyed being outside under the canopy. We ordered from the 3 course for $25 menu (comes with a glass of wine which was a nice surprise) . The options were good but the dinners were underwhelming; average, at best. It appeared that little care was given in preparation or presentation because it was the "'special". Crab cake was tasty but very odd texture. Broiled tilapia looked bland and boiled The desserts were very small portions and the tiramisu was watery and left uneaten. Wait staff did their job and nothing more. . It was my first time there and I would not go back.
