Now that Il Forno has closed, this is probably the best Italian restaurant in the area. It serves Italian comfort food--good, not spectacular. The service is good--even in the holiday season with larger parties. It is BYOB and prices are competitive. Staff are friendly.

When ever my husband and I are in the mood for Italian this is the place we choose. Husband especially likes the pizza bread and I like the puff bread. Both come complimentary with refills on both. Food is delicious and the service is top notch. Only one problem. Like most restaurants these days the acoustics are not good but... More

We go to Carlucci's in West Windsor often. In the summer it's really wonderful to sit outside. We had a new veal dish recently that has crisp eggplant on top of the veal topped with mozzarella and red sauce. It was delicious! The service is always friendly and we are remembered and greeted warmly. The pasta fagioli is delicious and... More

This is a great place for family dinners. We come here often as a group of 10 with our extended family and are never disappointed. The food and service are great. No complaints.

On Sunday evening, we went to Carlucci's for my friend's birthday. Since she lives in Jersey so it was her pick. It was wonderful!! The outside area is lovely - nicely done, pretty and extremely comfortable. The food was delicious and reasonably priced - we both had the Gamberi Positano which is a shrimp, pasta, vegetable dish which was terrific... More

We had out of state visitors last week and the first night we took them here. It is probably our favorite local restaurant. The menu has changed since we were here last, but not in any disappointing way. There were five of us and we ate outside on the terrace. Both the food and service were impeccable. Don't let the...

Nice looking restaurant. The staff was friendly. I wasn't happy with the food. Too me it had more of a Olive Garden taste. Acceptable but not real good Italian. If I didn't fill up on the bread which is like a garlic loaf bread I would have left hungry. To be honest I would rather eat at my local pizza... More

We enjoy going to Carlucci's to celebrate birthdays or just a night out with the family. We are always very satisfied with our meal and the staff is pleasant!

My first visit to Carlucci's was last week for lunch. I arrived at 1130 and the place was empty, but by 12pm it was filling up. The seafood bisque was incredible, very flavorful with just the right amount of seafood for a starter course. Then I had an eggplant and pasta dish which was light yet filling. Being half Italian,...

I have been coming to Carlucci's since first working in East Windsor in 2004. This most recent time was as part of an office Christmas lunch for 15 (or so) and it was very well done. The food was fresh and the service on point. There was another party equally as large in the dining room and they seemed to... More
