Delicious Italian food in a relaxed atmosphere..

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... read more

I took my family of 12 to Carlucci's Grill for dinner on Black Friday. The restaurant was packed, but our food and service were fantastic. Diego, our waiter, was great. All of our meals were delicious and served hot without a long wait. We were all very impressed and we will definitely be back.

Nice Italian restaurant. Lovely outdoor patio in the spring and summer. Food is average to good however, the crab cakes are very good.

We chose Carlucci's during a brief stay in Princeton because of its obvious familiarity with gluten-free needs. GF dishes are clearly marked. Some other dishes can be adapted. Carlucci's is a homey, comfortable BYOB restaurant with a very nice courtyard in a small strip mall. My GF wife had chicken parm. The perfectly grilled chicken tasted great with the authentic...

Carlucci's is consistently good. It is never great and never awful. You can always expect a decent meal.

Carlucci's has an extensive menu that suited the meat lover's and vegetarians in our party. The complimentary appetizers are a bonus. One person's sandwich bread was soggy (a chicken parmesan sandwich) but everything else was great--veal, crab cakes, pizza, and pasta. On a weekday it felt like we had the place to ourselves. Water glasses and ice tea was refilled... More

Lots of choices, good food, generally good service. Crowded on weekends and the wait is far too long, and it's a little overpriced - $21 for 50 cents worth of pasta and a couple of shrimp - but that's dining out these days.

We have been going to Carlucci's since it opened. We especially like to order out. My husband is glutten free and they now have a glutten free menu. They also just redid their menu. I had the chicken salad on mixed greens with cranberries. It was very good. My husband likes the pasta primavera / looks good but is a... More

Much to my surprise I was able to get a last minute mother's day reservation. When we arrived we found out why: Carlucci's had a "special" mother's day menu with surprise surprise special prices: fifty to one hundred per cent their regular meal prices. Worse, the menu was "limited" with no vegetarian meals on the menu to speak of. For... More
