This is the first time we visited Carlucci’s for a New Year’s dinner. It will definitely NOT be the last time we bring in the New Year here. We have enjoyed many late lunches and dinners at Carlucci’s (and their other restaurant – Mamma Mia’s located nearby) over the years. We have never had a bad meal or bad service at either location. The New Year’s menu was a “special menu” whose service fees appeared to be a tad higher than their regular dinners; however, the menu items offered were a broad array of choices among soups, appetizers and entrees. The crab cake drizzled with lemon sauce, the veal and salmon presentations served with pasta were generous servings which left us with no room for dessert. The other service that Carlucci’s offered is they accepted New Year's reservations and called to verify planned attendance.
