Carlucci Restaurant Downers Grove

•Carlucci Restaurant Downers Grove is a Regional Italian Restaurant with a contemporary décor featuring Tuscan inspired food from a rotisserie, wood -burning oven and grill. The wine list is dominated by Italian and California selections with most being Chiantis, Cabernets, Merlots, and Pinot Noirs. The great bar promotions include $3 and $5 appetizers Monday through Friday from 4-7pm, and $5 Martinis on Wednesdays. Some of their Dinning Room promotions include “Penny Wine” on Fridays, and BYOV (no corkage fee) on Thursdays. Their beautiful private dining rooms can accommodate anywhere from 15 to 120 people. The outdoor patio is definitely the place to be seen in the summer.

"For years Carlucci had been our favorite restaurant in the western suburbs. Pretty room, good service, but above all, quality food. Sadly, with the recent change in chef and menu, that is no longer the case. We went once right after the change and were very disappointed, but gave it a few months and tried again. No good. The menu tries for authentic Italian, but misses the mark. Dishes are misspelled and poorly described, variety a fraction of what it used to be. The online menu was dated 12-17-15 but did not match the menu we were given on 2-5-16 so some of the things we were interested in were no longer available. The entrees themselves were uninspired. Lamb shank was bland, pork chops were overcooked, veal chop was downright dull. We were left wondering if the chef was just overwhelmed or intentionally "dumbing down" the menu and the food to try for more of a mass appeal. So sad when you see a good restaurant ruined. We won't be going back."

"All four of us were very happy with the quality of the food and the wine but I found my portion size of the lamb shank was a light. The dish needs more lamb to truly be worth the money. The service was outstanding."

"It was disappointing on many levels. The website said there was lasagna which is why we went. It's the only thing my daughter wanted and it was her birthday dinner we were celebrating. We arrive, look at the menu- NO LASAGNA!
My husband ordered the fish special and the portion was INSANELY small. I would've been SHOCKED if it was even 4oz filet of fish. And it was so expensive.
My chicken dish said it came with asparagus, plate comes out- no asparagus. When I asked it seemed like an inconvenience to bring it out for me.
Overall, just a VERY disappointing dinner especially for the amount of money our meal cost.
Our server was very nice.
We won't ever go back. There are a lot of other Italian restaurants in the area to go back."

"I had the Beratta and filet which were great. Caprese salad was not good at all for an Italian restaurant. Business associate had the lamb shank and it was a very small portion of meat. Ordered the caramel Gelato and the espresso flavor came to table......kitchen argued with waiter (we could hear) and then the caramel showed up. Not the typical great experience tonight and they were half full at best."

"Food was fine, but the service poor-waiter had tables in another room so we saw too little of him when needed. Room was pretty for Christmas Eve. I would not rush back in the near future."
