It is undergoing construction (and has been for awhile). Our seats were on the patio. The breeze and view of the water were both nice. However, our table was right outside of the tent area were the waiters were moving in and out with the food and not too far from the side of the building where construction dumpsters were situated. Therefore, our side view was not great.

Food quality was great! There were five of us and each was very satisfied with our meal. It was the best crab cake I have had! (And I have had quite a few having lived in MD for a while and still return often.) Also, our waiter and attention to our table was very good even though it was an extremely busy evening. It was Father's Day and the staff wished my husband "Happy Father's Day" several times.

The food was mediocre. I was surprised that I wasn't allowed to substitute anything or even ask for anything my way. We sat outside on the patio. They had umbrellas, but no fans or wind blowing. What topped it off was I saw one server pick his nose and the other dig in his pocket to scratch his private area. It was so obvious.Gross! I will not be returning. The only thing they have going for them, was that the restaurant is by the water. I rather eat great food in a dive, than have ok ambiance and mediocre food.

My family and I have gone many years to Carluccis for many special occasions and the food was always excellent. However this time my family and I were very disappointed in our meal. The chicken parmesan and the chicken Marsala were very bland. We brought the leftovers home and my husband was ablle to improve the taste for our dinner the next day. We were so looking forward to eating at Carluccis. What a disappointment. What happened?

One of the better places around the area. I was sorry not to see the marinated seafood salad on the menu this summer, I look forward to it. They made me a plate of something they make at the bar thinking it would be similar, but it was barely OK. I would like to see a more varied menu, with lighter offerings.

I was also distressed to see they are charging $1.50 extra for the Caesar salad. I asked shy when it had fewer ingredients, and was always the same price as the garden salad, and I was told it because of the Romaine Recall. There is no more recall. They need to fix that

We went to dine outside for my husband's birthday. We made a reservation on Open Table and called to make sure that we could be seated outside. Everything was wonderful. The host, servers, and everyone at the restaurant did a wonderful job. The food was delicious and the view, beautiful and calm. I love going to Carlucci's.

We went for the happy hour. The bartender was very friendly but the staff who brought out our appetizers (3) were not friendly at all. Don't bother ordering the fried calamari as there is no flavor. We also ordered the fish tacos which are good. The appetizer with roasted peppers said it had sharp provolone but it did not. It also said it contained black olives but they were Kalamata olives

We chose Carluccis as their website indicated music Friday and Saturday but the hostess said "no musuc tonught"

Dinner was very good.

The restaurant was okay. A little dingy on the outside in the back. The food was mediocre nothing to write home about. The service was good not exceptional but okay. And if you're looking to get points for OpenTable don't count on them because they don't give you the points you deserved for the money you spent. We went and spent $100 on our meal plus tip and none of that was applied to our OpenTable point system

Very disappointed in the fact that we had reservations for 7 and since it was my wife’s Birthday a table close to window . Upon arrival they noted reservations were for 4 with no location available as requested. That said the food was at best ok definitely not wort the effort to return which I’ll spend my money elsewhere.

Visited on 6/3/18. The internets pictures were misleading. Property is outdated both inside and outside. Nails sticking through the wood by our table. Walls looked terrible with faded wallpaper and window treatments stained Outside electrical cords and garbage we're part of our view. Bruschetta was delicious but the entrees were terrible and the crab had no flavor. We had stomach aches after eating here. It's a shame because you can tell that maybe at one time this place was very nice. They stopped maintaining the property and food quality was ignored. Definitely not worth the trip down the turnpike.

The last time I came to Carlucci’s (February/2018) everything was amazing crab meat bruschetta, filet mignon and lobster tail. Everything prepared to perfection, couldn’t say enough about the meal and Carlucci’s. So I recommended we have my fathers 75th birthday dinner there, 12 of us. This time it was meahhh, not bad but if it was the first time I was there, would t recommend. I had crab cakes others had seafood pasta carnival same opinion however my nephew had NY strip and loved it. Also the musician was setting up to play just about face to face to our father which with his choclear implant would have never been able to stay plus uncomfortable but the staff was very accommodating and had him start playing as we were leaving. I guess just stick to seafood and steak!! 😀

Wonderful restaurant in Mt. Laurel, NJ on Rancocas Creek. Beautiful views and a lovely atmosphere. The food was amazing and I was so happy to see that they had a Raw Bar! We sat leisurely and had our drinks and appetizers and enjoyed dining al fresco on a warm summer-like evening. Our waiter was very friendly, attentive and always visible if we needed anything. We had a choice of soup or salad with our meals and they came out when our appetizers had been cleared away. My mother and I both ordered a salad and they were very good as well. For our entrees we both ordered chicken, Marsala for my mother and Francaise for myself and they were both fantastic, very flavorful and just the right portion sizes. For dessert we both had the sorbet; coconut for me and lemon for my mother. They were delicious and light and the perfect way to end our meal. I highly recommend this restaurant and we will definitely be going back soon!

The food was delicious. We sat outside because it was such a beautiful night and had a wonderful time. Our server was a little gruff and seemed unhappy when I gave him a coupon. I buy these coupons every year from my neighbors son who plays for the Lenape football team. I always tip on the precoupon charge on my bill and this was the first time anyone acted negatively about me using it. Other than that everything was perfect.

We waited at least 15 minutes before anyone came to take our order; and then, we had to tell them that we wanted to order beverages. Our menus did not have everything the same on both of them. We have been coming here since this restaurant first opened; however, it will no longer be one of our “ go to” places to eat

Website shows "25 Pre-Fixe Menu", but when we tried to order from that on Saturday night, we were told they don't accept it on Friday or Saturday. That is not shown ANYWHERE on the site. I had the printout with me and showed the waitress. It should either be honored, or fix the website. Our anniversary was noted when I made the reservation online, but never mentioned when we were there.

First time visit to Carlucci's and I would say it was a very nice dining experience. The patio is outstanding! The food was very good! I had the crab cake which was prepared with jumbo lump crab meat....so delicious!! The server was nice and attentive but there was a significant gap of time between the salad/soup course and the main entree. Note that it was a busy Friday night so I'm sure the kitchen was backed up with orders. Overall, we didn't mind because of the outside dining with a view, the perfect weather and a talented musician who played the guitar softly....a very nice touch. I would go back!!

Everyone's entitled to any off night and this was, obviously the case. We've had many wonderful meals here and, hopefully will again. Service was just bad, from the lack of a table setup well after the delivery of the bruschetta (and still having to ask) to failure to put a candle on the table until asked, to the lack of the lighting of the tiki torches well after dark. The food was great (as always)!

Great place to dine, it was Mothers Day so we expected it to be busy and a little high in price. But we had a reservation for 7pm and we were not seated till 7:50. Once inside it just got better our waiter and waitress were amazing and were on top of everything. Food came out and it was out of this world great. Thank you for a beautiful mothers day for my wife and family.

Booked a table for 2 for Mother's Day @ 6. It was hopping. Lot of people waiting, but we got seated right away. Server was very busy but was always warm, friendly and attentive. She never seemed harried and we never felt rushed or neglected. Re the food, especially enjoyed the shrimp bisque for the soup and the cannoli for dessert. We don't eat out a lot, but when we do, we appreciate good food, great service and a nice atmosphere. Carlucci's had it all that night.

Recent visit for Mother’s Day dinner. Was seated exactly on time per our reservation. Waiter was attentive and answered all of our questions and was very efficient as well as other staff members. We always have a great meal when we visit Carlucci’s which is why we visit often. Special menu for the occasion offered a variety of dishes, drinks, and desserts. Well done Carlucci’s!!
