We were a group of 8 friends for lunch. The service was good; enough time to enjoy your food and not too slow between courses. The waiter gave us sufficient time to chat as we usually do a lot of when we get together. The price was reasonable and we had a discount coupon.

Birthday celebration. Food and service was... good. Although the time desired according to opentable was unavailable, therefore we had to pick an earlier reservation time. Only to show that there were many empty tables at the restaurant.

Very good food, great service, and good value. They have 2 types of complimentary bread. A chewy bread with tomato sauce poured on top, and a naan type of bread topped with fresh garlic and olive oil.

I have been to this restaurant several times. This was the first time for my granddaughters. They loved the calamari with the balsamic dressing with honey. All the food was great. Pretty restaurant. If it wasn't so hot we would have eaten outside.

our party was 4 adults, two grade school boys and a 2 year old. Service was quick enough to keep everyone happy and entertained, and the food was very good, as it always is. The waiters came and sang happy birthday and the kids were happy.

The only negative is that we made a reservation through Open Table, but when we got there they had no record of it. There were plenty of tables so seating wasn't a problem, but if it was later in the evening it could have been an issue getting a table

Great family meal, BYOB. We made a reservation, it didn’t look like we needed one when we walked, but it filled up fast.

Carlucci's feels like a place where you're gathered with your family for Sunday dinner. It's a warm and inviting atmosphere. The staff is really friendly and the food is exceptional. I'll be making regular visits to Carlucci's. PS--The complimentary garlic bread is to die for. It comes right out of the oven and is warm and delicious!

My husband and I brought my mom, sister and her husband. Everyone totally enjoyed the mussels appetizer. Each enjoyed their entrée and the service was great. We will definitely come back with friends and family. We were not rushed in any way and had time to visit and enjoy a great meal.

Great selections and great specials. But my salmon fish special wrapped in bacon was disappointing. The fish was very dry and the bacon was not cooked well at all. It was soggy and didn’t add much flavor. Stick to the pastas.

When I first moved to this area, I dined several times at Carluccis and enjoyed it. Then it seemed to go downhill and I avoided it for years. Last year friends told me it was outstanding so I tried it again and was pleasantly surprised. It was even better than before. I have since attended a number of times and was impressed by the quality of the food, the festive atmosphere and the attentive and responsible service. Since I am in a wheelchair now, I noticed how courteous the staff was and how they actually helped me get in and out of the restroom and in and out of the front door. Plus the prices are reasonable, the portion sizes generous and they even offer discount coupons. Others must feel the same way because I have noticed capacity crowds at evening meals. A great dining experience!

This is a neighborhood favorite that never disappoints. Good, standard Italian food dishes. We like the fact that they will substitute grilled vegetables for pasta or potato. Also enjoy that soup or salad comes with the entree. Pleasant atmosphere. BYOB. Wait staff has been there forever! Owner/manager is present and keeps everyone happy!

I have eaten here many times over the years and always find it to be consistent in terms of its quality of food, service and value. Its outdoor seating is always a treat. The service can be a bit uneven, so be sure you get Elizabeth as your server, if at all possible. The food is uniformly good and very fairly priced. The restaurant is BYO, which is an added treat.

Food was ok, but all tasted the same. There was a hair in our soup which they simply replaced with no other accommodation. Just a simple apology. Not that good.
