We enjoyed what would be our last dinner at Carlucci, this past Saturday evening, as they were closing that weekend. For many years, we have enjoyed the food, ambience, service , and entertainment. Many occasions were celebrated at Carlucci. We especially enjoyed the beautiful outdoor patio with the waterfall. Thank you, Joe. We will savor the memories!
They need to update their menu online. They didn’t have either dish we went there for.
So sad that this was our last meal at Carlucci. We love this restaurant and wish all employees the best.
This Carluccis is closing after this week end. It was great because they seated 10 of us when at first we expected only 6. The waiter was attentive. Some of the entries were excellent, mine was ok. The meatballs aren't as good as at other restaurants, and I needed to have them heated. But, the waiter did so immediately, no questions asked. I believe some of it was because they were closing this location for good after the week end. I had been here before, and it was excellent at that time. I would give a Carluccis at another location another chance. And, I can't say enough good things about the hostess and the servers. Hope they stay on or get another good gig.

We hate to see you close. Have really enjoyed your restaurant.
This restaurant is closing on February 18 as the property has been sold to Coopers Hawk, who will build an entirely new restaurant on the site to open in 2019.
The food was good, we had the pork chop and the Parmesan linguini. The prosciutto with the linguine seemed more like sliced ham, so we did not eat it. Also the bread that they brought to the table was hard and stale, and so was the next batch. For the type of restaurant and prices I expected a bit more from the service too. There were no recommendations or conversation. It was just a “what do you want to eat ” “ok do you want a refill” “yes” ..... so it’s something I would expect at chili’s. Server was very friendly, but again, not what you expect at a place like this.
Our standard for Valetines Day. Great food, super atmosphere and relaxing and enjoyable.
This was the worst experience ever! I made reservations for 4 for Valentine's Day with my family. When we arrived I told them my reservation. They said NO you don't have one. I showed them my Open Table confirmation email. They still said no reservation. You must of made the one for the Schaumburg I restaurant.It clearly states Downer's Grove on my email as I showed it again to them.
They gave us the worst table in the restaurant. A separate room all the way in the back corner by the cold window. I asked if we could have a different table. No can do. Place was empty.
We had a question about the carbonara sauce. Waitress didn't know what was in it and they were out of it at 6pm.
They also didn't have the stuffed blue cheese olives for the Martini. They were not prepared for V-Day.
