“Great local spot for pizza and sit down Italian”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

Carlucci's is one of those consistent local spots that you are always in the mood for. The take out side has great pizza, salads, and subs. The sit down is great Italian classics and is BYOB. I love their red sauce and their eggplant parm. The service is always great and the food is always fresh and hot. Great spot for couples, friends, or family.

“Good local Italian”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

I would not consider this a destination place like some of the restaurants in Philly but for locals its not bad at all.

Their food could be brought up a couple notches but if you are looking for a place with good atmosphere and white table cloths, this is it locally. General American-Italian favorites.

Nice place for a celebration, birthday party, etc.

Easy place to come and eat and leave satiated. Not mind blowing or a foodie type place.

“good neighborhood restaurant”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Very good Italian restaurant for a neighborhood. Not haute cuisine but reliable good veal, past dishes like gnocchi ad clams casino. When we are in the neighborhood ,it will be a reliable not too expensive choice.

“Authentic Italian”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

My favorite dish is Veal Saporito. The hardest decision is whether to have it with their delicious grilled vegetables or over their delicate angel hair pasta. I usually think "tomato sauce" when someone mentions eating out Italian, but not at Carlucci's. Their menu is large and detailed, so you know exactly what you are ordering. The house dressing is a vinegarette and should be your first choice. Each meal is started with bruschetta that will leave you wanting more, but save room for your delicious entrée and don't forget to leave room for one of their unique home made deserts. Oh, What to Choose???

“The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

The Good: The waitress and hostess were very nice. The manager offered us a small free dessert after I showed him the bug.
The Bad: The food here is pretty terrible. I ordered "Carlucci's Surprise" salad and the surprise was some yucky tasting jarred spice sprinkled all over it. I don't even know what spice it was. It was supposed to be similar to an antipasta salad. The menu said "Prosciutto di Parma" but this ham was heavily marbled and obviously not the Parma product. It was edible however, along with the mozzarella and roasted peppers. Otherwise, everything else on the plate tasted terrible. There were artichoke hearts and greek olives... both of which somehow tasted bad. I don't know how you can mess this up because they just come from a jar. There was grilled eggplant that had such a strange taste that I can't imagine what they did to it... Again, how can you mess this up? The "spring mix" salad was mostly some large, tough leafy salad instead.
The Ugly: There was a bug in it.
