Came here for the first time this month for an alumni event and will definitely be back! We rented out a beautiful party room and had a huge selection of seasonal, authentic food. Service, food, and venue were all fantastic.

We had a very enjoyable and reasonably priced lunch at Carlucci. We happened to show up there on a Friday which is penny wine day. With each meal we were able to purchase up to three glasses of wine for only a penny. The food was tasty, the people-watching was excellent and the penny wine was such a bonus that we ordered dessert. I'm looking forward to returning when the weather is warm and the patio is open!

We went for an early dinner around 5:00 pm. The bread and oil that was served was below average, very little taste. I had the chicken parma and she had lobster ravioli. The chicken was very tough and the pasta was a little under cooked. The wife said the lobster ravioli was actually very good. The pasta sauce for the chicken was very good. We didn't have any wine, drinks or desserts, so I can't comment on that. We will try other Italian restauants before we return here....

Cons: Seafood Smell, Bread and Oil

I really enjoyed my dining experience at this restaurant. The ambiance is nicely decorated and it is very spacious. There is enough room for large parties. They have large food portions and it is nicely presented. I recommend ordering the linguine that is tossed inside a parmesan cheese wheel. It is a unique dish and it is at a reasonable price on their lunch menu ($5).

The problem with this establishment is a problem which plagues many other restaurants, the wine list is ridiculously overpriced. I just do not think anyone should charge over 2x for a bottle of wine. Carlucci's pricing was over 3x. Good wine is meant to be enjoyed with food. It's hard to enjoy the wine when you know are paying too much.

Pros: Good pasta, Good main courses, Excellent deserts

Cons: Overpriced wine, Don't order the duck
