Been to Carlucci's in Plainsboro 2 times in the past 2 months both times with friends plus several other times over the past 3 years. Service was efficient, friendly and wait staff knowledgable about the menu. Food is very good, traditional dishes with generous portions. The linguine with white clam sauce is excellent. They give you this huge puffy garlic... More

We have been going here since it opened, but it just is wonderful every time. We've taken family members who are visiting and everyone always thinks everything is great. You can dine inside or out and the service is always very attentive,friendly, and casually professional. All of the dishes are large and we often order numerous appetizers, salads, and mains... More

I wrote a positive review previously, but service has gone down hill. Our waitress was inexperienced, showing a lack of training, but she tried. It took almost an hour to get the food to our table! Several tines we were told, "it's coming." As we were leaving, I asked to speak to the manager in order to complain. "I'm sorry"... More

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.
