“Good food, but crowded”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

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. There's a wine store at the strip mall.

“Crowded Friday night but a welcoming setting, great dinner!”
Reviewed October 24, 2011

We know many Princeton restaurants but as it was a busy weekend in Princeton. We did not want to deal with the crowds on Nassau St. We drove a bit further and dined at Carlucci's 335 Princeton Hightstown # 14Princeton Jct, NJ 08550-3121, -------- and had an excellent, memorable meal with our daughter. Carlucci's is BYOB. There is a liquor store in the same strip mall as Carlucci's. Carlucci's in located in the middle, in corner of the strip mall. I did not find the meal overpriced. The food was a very good quality. the garlicky appetizer bread served hot out of the pizza oven was exceptional. The Crème Brûlée was tasty but not 100% accurate. The chocolate mousse type dessert item was excellent. If you dine at Carlucci's Monday to Thursday, there is a good size discount to be had by submitting for register receipt from the neighboring grocery store in the same mall. Pick up some breakfast items for your hotel room! I think the discount is up to $ 15.00 per tab....Monday to Thursday.
