Good basic food. Servings generous. Menu not changed so ok for a quick meal but nothing special. Service average.

Carlucci's was one of the first restaurants to open in this popular eating area and has kept up their high standards of food and decor. You can pop in for a coffee and cake or have a full meal.

My family has been going to this restaurant for many years. It is consistently excellent. It has a nice outdoor area. The menu is very varied and there is something for everyone, making it a great place for family. The deserts and cakes are delicious. Their freshly squeezed juices are great.

I've been going to Carlucci's since my high school days (so about 15 years now), still great service, yummy food and drinks. My cousin felt like eating pasta so we decided since it was mid-week, to go somewhere local. I had the chicken, avocado and mushroom gnocchi, my cousin ordered the calabrese spaghetti, the boys had pizza. Prompt, delicious food.... More

I was with a group of 12 persons and we shared a number of dishes. The pasta was very good, especially the seafood carbonara. The fried doughnut with ice cream and chocolate was heavenly. Service was efficient.

Excellent menu with a variety of main meals to choose from. My friend had the chorizo linguine and I had the salt and pepper calamari special. Both meals were delicious. We shared the trio of dips as an entree and were pleased with how generous the serve of Turkish bread was. The wine list was extensive and well priced. For... More

Wendy and I had a lovely lunch on a nice day outside. Service was good and the price was reasonable. Parking was not easy as Templestowe has a 1 hour restriction in many areas around me the eating places. Still the place is worth checking out.
