Great food; too bad it's so pricy. Steak and calamari are definitely top notch. Atmosphere is rather formal. Only complaint is pricing. This isn't downtown Chicago!

The staff, the food, and the ambiance were exceptional. We were so impressed with the service and we loved everything that we got to eat! My husband had the lamb (he said it was amazing), and we had the soup of the day and the minestrone (they can our hot and the taste was excellent). My daughter had the spaghetti with meatballs from the kid’s menu. It was a generous portion, and delicious. I got the rigatelli and I was so happy with my choice. We only wish that we lived closer! It was the perfect spot to go before a show at the AllState Arena- it was an eight minute drive away.

I often have business lunches at Carlucci’s. The staff is extremely helpful, reservations are always prompt and the food is fantastic. There are daily specials that spice up the regular menu.

Our server, “Grumpy” was the sweetest grumpy we’ve ever met. He really made our experience so much more than what it would have been.

The food was very good! The calamari was lightly breaded and perfectly cooked, not greasy whatsoever. And the bread pudding....fantastic!!

Service was good. Food was terrible. We places our order and got bread put on table. We just took a piece of bread and the food came. How could it be cooked that quick. That tells me it was all pre cooked and re heated. No flavor in foos at all. Was a huge disappointment.

Our Brie appetizer was phenomenal and so was our. Dessert. My husBand said his sea bass was ok. I had the pasta with braised beef sauce was not what I expected. I was thinking it would be stringy pieces of beef but it was more like hamburger. The oil with our bread was ok but we were surprised their was no Parmesan on the table for our oil. Not something I have had to ask for in other Italian restaurants. The hostess stopped at our table, and she was very nice and we enjoyed our chat.

Overall is was a nice experience. We did however have to send back the ravioli my husband ordered 2 times and finally just skipped it all together. It was a little hard (the pasta) and dry. And tons of butter at the bottom of the bowl. However the staff and manager were very understanding and accommodating about it. The manager even sent us home with 2 desserts to enjoy later because we were in a little rush to leave. Truly appreciated the good customer service and hospitality.

Our server, Elizabeth, was knowledgable and friendly. The calamari was cooked to perfection, with a delicious tomato sauce we used for our bread. The caesar salad, and bruschetta were also delicious, and although we loved our pasta parmesan- we had to take it home, we were so full! Great place and everyone was super friendly!

It was a Christmas gift to ourselves to see a show and have a nice romantic delicious dinner. Show was great and everything about Carlucci's was WonDERful ... except our server. She was distracted and we perceived her as uninterested the entire evening and failed to check on us frequently so I ended up drinking water versus getting a 2nd Iced Tea ... sorry if I decided not to drink and cause a lower bill ... which was $100 ... and we still gave her 20% tip, figuring everyone has a rough day, but it was still a disappointment to a wonderful evening. After the meal we went to the restrooms and saw her sitting in the adjacent room on her phone and then going through her receipts. If we return, we would specifically ask NOT for her to serve us.

Christmas Eve dinner, we dined in the back room which was quieter than the main room. CC was our server and she was wonderful and helpful, picking the perfect wine pairings. The portions were good sized; we find veal servings typically small but this was generous as was the Frutti di Mare. Excellent meal!

Christmas Eve dinner was amazing. Our meals were prepared with perfection. The fried calamari are the best I have ever had. Tender with a crisp breading. Clay was our server and was friendly, helpful & charismatic. He is one of the best waiter's I have had anywhere. Overall a great dining experience.

Prices a bit higher, which is ok as the food is great, but I go here every Christmas and usually get Art as a server...but this night, he was not working. Well, I have to say, he should be in charge of training the waitstaff because the experience was just not the same with a different waiter. I can honestly say, I will NOT return unless when I make my reservation, Art will be my waiter. The experience was simply not the same without him.

I wanted to take my family to a 'top' restaurant for part of our Christmas memories. According to several sites, Carlucci is the #1 restaurant in Rosemont! They were right! Every aspect of Carlucci was excellent, from our greeting when we arrived to our service, attention, and food during our meal. Our server was exceptionally friendly and attentive. He answered our many questions and offered his opinion when asked. We shared the bruschetta and grilled calamari appetizers; each was fresh, delicious, and unique. Among the five of us, we tried a variety of foods. The filet and shrimp was a recommendation for my son. He enjoyed every bite. A specialty of the house was the linguine with parmesan and prosciutto (tossed, table-side in a wheel of fresh parmesan). It was very rich (maybe a bit too rich for my daughter), but quite delicious. Another daughter had the penne with grilled vegetables. This was amazing...the vegetables were so fresh and grilled to perfection. My daughter requested eggplant and a fresh plate of grilled eggplant was delivered momentarily. I have a special: monk fish stuffed with shrimp and crab, wrapped in prosciutto. This was a MOST amazing dish....I wasn't sure what to expect, but is was unbelievable. The prosciutto was so crisp and tasty, and the fish with the crab was moist and delicious.
My third daughter had the seafood risotto in a parmesan bowl. This was our only slight disappointment of the evening. The risotto was a bit dry and not very flavorful. The dish was presented nicely in the parmesan bowl, but the plate was bare otherwise.

Dessert: they were out of the bread pudding, which was our top choice. We had the cannolis, which were freshly stuffed and very light. We also shared the creme brulee, which was good.

Overall, our time at Carlucci was perfect! It is a beautiful restaurant with fresh and delicious food and a friendly staff.

We had an 8 p.m. reservation on Sunday night to meet some friends from out of town as this was the only time that worked for the four of us. We wound up running late and arrived at 8:30.
The Carlucci’s staff could not have been more wonderful! They kept the kitchen open so we could order and stayed until after 10 p.m. even though we were the only party remaining in the entire restaurant. They were gracious and kind and we were so appreciative!
As usual, the food and ambiance were wonderful and we will come back again many times. Thank you Carlucci’s!!!

We had a party of 5. We were seated in the upper level of the bar. When we sat down we noticed that the paper over the tablecloth was used and dirty - yuck! They cleared the table and put down a fresh sheet of paper. Later when our meal was served, someone went to use the salt shaker, and it had red sauce splattered all over it - yuck again! Our server was attentive but also knew when to leave us alone. Food was decent, however, I ordered pasta with chicken, spinach, tomatoes, and asparagus; I was given pasta with chicken and broccoli! It was Saturday night, and there were very few people in the bar and restaurant. Don't think I will come back. The restaurant seems outdated and not too clean!
