First of all, it's in West Windsor, not Plainsboro. Every other restaurant in NJ is an Italian place. Most are overpriced and annoying. Carlucci's is not exceptional food-wise, but it's good, maybe a little expensive for what you get but not dramatically so. The service is excellent more often than not. The outdoor seating is pretty nicely done (for a... More

Large place, décor a little old fashioned. Service excellent. We were 6 for lunch. The crab cake (1) with capellini well seasoned, but small looking on a very large plate, $12.99 with a small uninspired salad. Others had personal salad pizza, seafood w/pasta and another a parmegiano. Everyone enjoyed their selections. Soups were very tasty. Dessert selections very delicious, but... More

My tummy is happy. I have dined here at least a dozen times over the past several years, and it occurred to me that I had not put in my two cents at Trip-Advisor. I keep coming back because it is consistent and of good quality. Not a fancy upscale $$$ place, but many steps above a "red sauce" pizza... More

I like Carlucci's because the food is very affordable. The menu is pretty large and the food is good. They have great lunch specials.

Packed on a Friday night. Service was excellent. Food was awesome! BYOB is a nice plus. Decor is a little out dated, so it's less of an upscale feel & more chachkee. For 2, our check was 75 with tip.... Including an app, 2 entrees & 2 desserts. If return!

My wife and I just returned from a dinner. A horrible experience. When i asked for a clean knife for my entree, the waitress showed me that we already had two used ones on the table. But the worst was that something was "off" with my wife's meal and she had to vomit her food. When we told the waitress... More

I have tried this place a few times, the food and service have been good. I love the garlic bread and overall a good choice for this area.

I like this place and so does everyone else. It's usually packed or gets packed by the time I leave. Food is always good, but they really pack in the people. Sometimes it's hard to work my way to the bathroom. There are often huge parties with lines of tables. Not a place for a quiet and peaceful evening. BYOB.... More
