We had a wonderful Easter
We had a wonderful Easter Brunch at Carlucci's. I loved the beautiful and delicious bread with the hard boiled eggs and the fried dough the chef made. All the work involved and they were beautiful. The Amazing Brando was entertaining with his magic and we loved his new tricks. The kids loved the bunny and easter eggs they got. You are always so generous to the kids. Some really liked the crepes and we also liked the prime rib. Of course the fried calamari is always good. The service was excellent as always and I think we are going to make Carlucci an Easter tradition in our family! Now I am looking forward to the Murder Mystery Carlucci's is hosting on April 21st. Food,drinks and a mystery too! All for only$60.00 a person. I can hardly wait

This was the first time I visited this restaurant and was pleasantly surprised. I had the veal marsala and it was outstanding. One of my friends had the lasagne and was not very impressed. The third person in my party had the chicken piccata and she stated that it was delicious.

we were there for a Murder
we were there for a Murder Mystery evening with a set menu. Can't really say if it was representative of their normal menu. Some of the food was very good, but some was just O.K. which is still good.
The murder mystery was entertaining and we all had a good time.

This was my first time at Carlucci and I must say it was very wonderful experience.

You know its a good Italian restaurant when you walk up and several guests are speaking Italian! We sat outside for our anniversary celebration and order a couple apps, meals and deserts. The food was outstanding. The waiter was nice but they need to come around a little more often. I saw the same thing at tables around us. Over a great place.

The service, food and ambience is very good.
Our waiter was attentive and knowledgable. The food was excellent for all 4 of us. We will be returning. We have never been disappointed.

Lunch on beautiful patio
My girlfriends and I met for lunch on a Monday afternoon. We sat outside on the patio, which made us feel like we were swept away to Tuscany for a few hours. To top it off, there was a $5 pasta special which we took advantage of.

Fine Italian dining
Well-prepared with a large selection of choices. Quiet enough for conversation. Business-friendly.

We brought some friends for dinner at Carlucci. We started with the appetizer tower where we picked arancini balls (rice), zucchini fritti and the most delicious, tender fried calamari. We started with a cocktail that had juice, fig liquor, prosecco and triple sec. The first time I ever ordered a cocktail on the specials menu and will look out for the specials from now on. We ordered Estacia Meritage to go with dinner. A very good cabernet. Caesar salads, arugula and beet salads followed. Ravioli Di mare, veal polenta, capesanti and the salmon were enjoyed by everyon. My salmon came with couscous which I am a big fan of now. We had a tower with panna cotta, cheesecake and budino di pane along with cappucinos for dessert.

Sat at a table outside right by the fountain with candles everywhere! It was sooooo nice and food was great
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
great first experience
Service was outstanding ! We asked if there was room on the patio and while there was none they set up a new table for us four. Then two dishes were delayed due to a kitchen mistake, they offer another appetizer free of charge and took out from our bill the 2 delayed orders. Manager came to apologize (which was not necessary in our mind). The weather was perfect outside, the band was really enjoyable and the sound not too loud. Great place for a saturday night as you can listen to the bqand playing while having a drink at the bar outside. We decided we'll be back.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Glad we came back
We hadn't been to Carlucci's in years -- it's a little further from our home and there's a lot of other Italian places we like. I wish we'd come back sooner! We ate on the delightful patio, had a great server and really enjoyed the food. The menu is large and there are several items I am eager to try in the future. We'll be back.

Glad We Went
We had wanted to try this place and on a whim went on Friday Night - glad we did! The menu was great and the Penny Wine is an exceptional deal!

Food is great, service is ok.
I went with a group of 6 for lunch, and the service was quite slow. We were there during business hours, and didn't have the 2 1/2 hours that it took to get the order taken, the food served, etc.
I used to truly love this restaurant, but things have changed. The $5 pasta is only on Monday or Tuesday. Every other day, the prices are quite high. The food is very good. They don't like to honor coupons often, especially from OpenTable. I argued to get my $20 OpenTable discount from a $100+ bill. I used another buy one/get one at a later date. Let's just put it like this, they never say "no problem, I'll take care of that for you." Rather it's "well.... let me check and see if this is ok." The service can be much better for the price.

I ordered white fish that came with browned potatoes and broccolini. My son had lobster ravioli that he really liked. The magician (who works on Sunday nights) was very entertaining.

Something for everyone to enjoy
I was at this restaurant to meet 5 old friends. A few of us started in the bar with $5 Martini's on Wednesdays. We asked for a table out on the patio. It's a very quiet, secluded spot with a large fountain in the center. There's also an outside bar but it was closed when we were there. We had a nice table in a far corner of the patio. There were couples, families, men in groups and women in groups.
We all had something different from chicken marsala to the pasta cheese bowl. This is served from a giant, hollowed out cheese wheel. The server stirs the pasta and scrapes cheese into the pasta before serving. Unique and very good.

This is our favorite restaurant
This is our favorite restaurant for outdoor dining and listening to whatever band is playing that weekend.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
first time experience
We went to Carlucci's because we heard they were featuring the band "7th Heaven" doing unplugged sets, and we are a fan of that band from frequent appearances at summer fests. When we made a reservation, we indicated we wanted to sit where the band was playing, but when we arrived, we were told the band was on the patio, and Carlucci doesn't reserve patio seating. We were given a restaurant table, but we watched the patio tables for departing guests. When we saw a table being cleared on the patio, we were told it was "reserved." So apparently there is some double-standard going on. We eventually got a table on the patio, and enjoyed the venue.
The wednesday special of $5 martinis is a great deal, and we recommend that especially.

The Magician thing sounds corny , I was there with my boys, and we came back a few weeks later partially b/c of the entertainment, with the rest of the family. weather, food, service and dining alfresco all very good.

Food was great, service was nice... Location is very sweet for a special occasion... Outdoor looked nice, but weather was too warm to sit outside...
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
The only issue we have considering
The only issue we have considering it was, overall, a good experience was that the white wine that was served was not properly chilled.

Our group was very happy with a variety of pasta dishes for lunch. Service was attentive, but not smothering, and we weren't rushed, which was important, as our gathering was a long-overdue meeting of old friends. The variety of foccacia presented was delicious. Wish the weather had cooperated so we could have been seated on the beautiful patio!

We took friends for dinner
We took friends for dinner on Friday night and they like the Estancia Meritage wine. We had arancini, artichokes and calamari. I had the salad special with cucumber and watermelon. My friend had my favorite beet salad and the men had caesar. My husband and I had the lightly breaded trout served over mushrooms and potatoes. They had the Veal Petroniana and the flat iron steak which is another of my favorites. We finished the meal with cappucino , the bread pudding, the chocolate lava cake and the tiramisu. Our server Amanda really knows the foods on the menu and was very attentive. Genti was very busy on the floor helping out because of penny wine night but he is never too busy to stop by and say hello and make sure everything is alright.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Carlucci has the best fried
Carlucci has the best fried calamari. My favorite is the beet salad while my husband likes the Caesar salad. We enjoyed the cabernet after all Fridays wine is a penny a glass. I like the eggplant parm which is served with spaghetti. It is a lot of work to make eggplant parm at home and the chef does a wonderful job. The spaghetti sauce was tasty as well. My husband and friend had the cod on special. They liked it but thought it was a little salty for their taste. Their daughter liked the pizza on the kids menu and the gelato won her over all well. I was hoping to see the ladyfingers soaked in lemoncello again on the specials. We topped the meal off with espresso and cappucinos which came with the most delicious Italian cookie.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were greeted immediately
We were greeted immediately by friendly staff after waiting a few minutes we were seated in a booth. Our server was a little off her game but the food made up for it. We were sat near enough to the lounge to hear the music which was very good but it did not hinder our dining experience. We will be back soon!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food and service were outstanding as we expected from being at the Rosemont Carlucci's. What surprised us was the live band in the bar afterwards was excellent. We had a 6:45 dinner reservation, but then didn't leave until well after midnight!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had the portabella stuffed
We had the portabella stuffed with sausage for an appetizer. Very tasty! Fried calamari is always a good choice. I ordered the house salad and my husband had a red pepper soup of the day. He ordered the halibut special and I had the chicken picatta with roasted potatoes and spinach. We had cappucino and coffee. We did not order dessert but an all time favorite is the tiramisu. Being that it was a Friday night most wines were a penny. The restaurant was pretty busy but both managers managed to stop by and say hello and check to see if everything was alright. Hoping to see the lady fingers soaked in limoncello back on the dessert specials soon. Saturdays they offer a band and on Sunday there is Brando the magician.

Good Business Lunch Spot
Took a client here for a lunch meeting. Good menu, choices for everyone from light eater to those wanting a more hearty lunch.
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Friends of ours recommended this place & we had a great time. I feel it's great for the older crowd. Between the 4 of us we had swordfish, chicken & shrimp. Food was very good. We also had tiramisu for dessert which I felt was a bit too dry. I am used to having tiramisu being more moist.
Very happy with our dining experience.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Have been coming here for years, and it is always delicious! The swordfish special with capers and gnocchi was fresh and a great flavor combination. The orecchiette with sausage and baby spinach was fantastic. The bean salad and Gorgonzola was also great. Love this place!

We were delighted that we
We were delighted that we had Nicolas as our server again. He's very good and has the most pleasant personality. I decided to try the Mezzaluna salad and now it is going to be hard to pick between that and the beet salad Nicolas recommended the Burrata special. Cheese and tomatoes on the toasted bread was perfect. I hope to see this appetizer on the new menu. We love the minestrone. My husband had the most tender short ribs on special. I took a taste and was sorry I did not order them. I did have my favorite eggplant parm with a side of spaghetti. I love the biscotti they serve with the cappucino and wonder if they make those as well. Carlucci is run by manager Genti and he works very hard at keeping the restaurant tip top.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Was able to get a reservation on very short notice for a party of 10 on a Saturday night. Food was excellent and the waiters were very knowledgeable in their recommendations. We'll definitely go back.

Had a wonderful dinner this past Thanksgiving weekend. The service was great. From the warm soft facoccia bread to the crème brulee. Wonderful. Pumpkin soup was delicious. I was in heaven.

We have been going to this
We have been going to this restaurant for several years and they always make the kids feel especially welcome. On Sunday Nights they have a Magician that makes it a great family night. The Amazing Brando is great!
Not inexpensive, but we get a great "Adult Meal" and the kids get a special night out.
