Ordered fettuccine with braised beef. Flavors were bland, meat was dry and nothing stood out. The description looks like it tastes better than it does.

Was really disappointed. Was a huge fan of Roseangelis and was hoping for something on par with that. Looks like it needs a serious update too. Between the decor and the lounge singer, I felt like I had stepped back in time, but not in a good way.

It’s all about the food. Staff and ambiance was there. Food was terrible. A crew of line cooks posing as chefs. The kitchen needs to clean house and start over.

Bad experience. Our server didn’t pay attention to us and she didn’t let us to finish our word to order. When we were asking her about the food she just answered with yes or no. Not valuable restaurant. Bad service. Average food quality. Not kids friendly.

As usual the food and service were tasty, nicely presented and served with efficiency by Stefan.
Eric the bartender mixes the perfect drinks before dinner in the bar, and pays great attention to detail for the customers at the bar. Often on weekends there will be live music in the bar, though at our last visit the musician got waylaid on the way to the gig.
Great food and beverage selection overall.

We have lunch at Carlucci every few months and like to sit in the bar because of a wonderful woman server whose name I forgot. When we had lunch there the other day with friends, who had never been there, and the wonderful server wasn't there and another woman server waited on us. She seemed rather disheveled and flaky. She filled our water glasses so full it was impossible to drink the water without spilling it. She immediately asked if we would like appetizers and we said no. We then waited quite a while before she returned to take our order. The salad I ordered seemed to be lacking several ingredients that were listed on the menu. We asked for dressing on the side which didn't come and we had to flag the server down to bring it. We then waited very long before she came back to see if we were finished and get the table cleared. It was an ok experience, not stellar like we were used to.

Usually a great dinner. However last night was very loud and crowded. Food was off and not very flavorful. Food took a while to come out as well. Had this been my first time I would not return. My company however probably would not.

I'd recommend this restaurant for the tableside pasta in the cheese wheel. Good selection and prices on wine by the glass. If you don't like noisy crowds or slow service, this is not the spot for you.

We've been going to Carlucci's on our anniversary for the past 3 years and it never fails. Great food, great service, and a great environment. I usually have the frutti di mare, but decided to try the Ossobuco d' Agnello this last time and I believe I found a new favorite. My wife always goes with the lasagna which is always delicious. Their tiramisu is amazing.
The staff is phenomenal there everytime we go. Manager Kristen stopped by to talk to us this time and I must say she was amazing and made us feel at home, it was a pleasure sharing stories with her about the kids. She made sure we were comfortable and having a great time for which we were very appreciative. Cristina our waitress was great and provided awesome service. She surprised us with some tiramisu as an anniversary gift and it was the perfect touch to end the great dining experience. Will definitely be back for our next anniversary!!!

Always a delight.

There might be a couple of places to rival it, but Carlucci's consistently has the best professional wait staff in the area which is a true pleasure to experience. The team was led by C.C., who is as conscientious as she is fun. Backed by assistant servers and bus staff, the service is highly attentive without being intrusive.

The food was great - but then I expect nothing less. I have been to Carlucci's many times, and literally have never been disappointed. I enjoyed an entre of veal piccata, and my business guest a bone-in pork chop. We finished up with small plates of tiramisu and cheesecake, complimented by espresso.

I will be looking for a reason to go again soon.

Server was asked to give us time to relax and check out the menu. Returned too many times to take order. When we finally ordered and received our dinner, the service fell off quickly except for the water person.
Bread was stale and had to be replaced.
We ordered a pasta dish that was served from a wheel of Parm. The server allowed all sorts of people to walk BETWEEN our table and our order that was being served! Terrible!!! At one point, I swear a woman’s sleeve brushed across our meal not to mention all the dust, hair, and perfume that wafted in the air during the serving of our meal!!! And the pasta was almost cold to the point that the cheesy sauce began to solidify!
Then....to use the bathroom we had to walk quite a distance to a lonely part of the building! Had there not been another person using the ladies’ room, I would have saved my bathroom break for later! Toilets are too, too far away from the restaurant!
Too much Italian restaurant competition in the area to be so lacking!
I’ve been writing reviews on this site for a long time! This was the worst review I have given any restaurant!!!

Great server! Food was delicious from appetizers through dessert. Wine...
Yummy and the selection was high quality. Didn't have Beefeaters for the martinis.
Seemed to be a theme in Rosemont restaraunts. My only compliant was I didn"t think it was a good value for the money spent.

The restaurant seems dated. Not a lot of smiles except from our waiter. Large portions but food just ok. Expected better osso buco for the price point. The bread pudding desert was very good. Limited but really nice quality wine selection by the bottle.

Although I reside in another State, we do have work in Illinois and therefore fly in every other week. We always have dinner at Carlucci's every Sunday night. We would NOT go anywhere else. It is not just the really good food, but also the staff. From the reception desk to the individual who pours the water and brings the bread to the waiter or waitress that provide outstanding service, to the manager who stops by the table to inquire about your dinning experience - all are OUTSTANDING!

From the onset, we were met with a friendly atmosphere and most cordial staff. The waiter was excellent and professionally attentive. The pasta bolonaise was excellent, the cocktails quite good, although, my martini was served with blue cheese stuffed olives, I requested the plain olives. We were most pleased with the entire e periwnce. Thanks
