Server was asked to give us time to relax and check out the menu. Returned too many times to take order. When we finally ordered and received our dinner, the service fell off quickly except for the water person.
Bread was stale and had to be replaced.
We ordered a pasta dish that was served from a wheel of Parm. The server allowed all sorts of people to walk BETWEEN our table and our order that was being served! Terrible!!! At one point, I swear a woman’s sleeve brushed across our meal not to mention all the dust, hair, and perfume that wafted in the air during the serving of our meal!!! And the pasta was almost cold to the point that the cheesy sauce began to solidify!
Then....to use the bathroom we had to walk quite a distance to a lonely part of the building! Had there not been another person using the ladies’ room, I would have saved my bathroom break for later! Toilets are too, too far away from the restaurant!
Too much Italian restaurant competition in the area to be so lacking!
I’ve been writing reviews on this site for a long time! This was the worst review I have given any restaurant!!!

Great server! Food was delicious from appetizers through dessert. Wine...
Yummy and the selection was high quality. Didn't have Beefeaters for the martinis.
Seemed to be a theme in Rosemont restaraunts. My only compliant was I didn"t think it was a good value for the money spent.

The restaurant seems dated. Not a lot of smiles except from our waiter. Large portions but food just ok. Expected better osso buco for the price point. The bread pudding desert was very good. Limited but really nice quality wine selection by the bottle.

Although I reside in another State, we do have work in Illinois and therefore fly in every other week. We always have dinner at Carlucci's every Sunday night. We would NOT go anywhere else. It is not just the really good food, but also the staff. From the reception desk to the individual who pours the water and brings the bread to the waiter or waitress that provide outstanding service, to the manager who stops by the table to inquire about your dinning experience - all are OUTSTANDING!

From the onset, we were met with a friendly atmosphere and most cordial staff. The waiter was excellent and professionally attentive. The pasta bolonaise was excellent, the cocktails quite good, although, my martini was served with blue cheese stuffed olives, I requested the plain olives. We were most pleased with the entire e periwnce. Thanks

Good restaurant in the O'Hare area. Food was excellent but service was extremely slow and lacking which made it disappointing and unpleasant. We had made a reservation but was 20 minutes late and they deleted the reservation immediately. Then it took over 20 minutes to get drinks and an hour to get food. Dinner lasted three hours which was really unnecessary. Not sure we will return.

I was very disappointed! Although the service and food was good, I had expected much more! This dinner was to celebrate our 40th anniversary. I had mentioned this when I placed the reservations on Open Table. Why does Open Table ask if this is a special occasion if the restaurant does not intend to honor it?? It wasn't as though the restaurant was even busy. We were the first dinner customers to arrive! Two people actually looked at our reservations before we were seated! We left feeling disappointed!

Convenient to O’Hare. Food was ok, but not wonderful. Calamari and arranchini appetizers were a bit bland. Risotto special with steak was good. Dessert was excellent. Servers were nice and attentive. Kid friendly.

Surprisingly good quality of food and service for a restaurant in an office park. The relaxing atmosphere was just what we needed after surviving O'Hare, and the shuttle service was worry free. My rack of lamb was cooked just right, and my wife's bolognese was quite flavorful. Excellent tiramisu and espresso for dessert.

The calamari was not good at all. You can tell it’s not fresh... and for the $15 price tag it shouldn’t be frozen calamari. The filet was just ok. The pasta and stuffed shrimp were very good. Overall I wouldn’t recommend. You can get much better quality elsewhere. We love L Woods. Best steak and calamari!

Superb entrees, especially the huge 16 ounce stuffed veal chop
Nicely flavored and lightly peppery fried calamari appetizer
The only item not up to snuff was the green salad accompanying the dinner swimming in balsamic dressing with not even a radish slice to break up the monotony.

But a great experience overall. And a regular family dining option for us.

Wonderful greeting up front, very cordial wait personnel. Big variety of choices in every category. Our menu selection were well-portioned and delicious. Including the side dishes. We never felt rushed. My only criticism is the noise level, which seems to be a problem in many restaurants. Nevertheless, highly recommended.

Service outstanding as usual. Very attentive, respectful, informative. Great Italian, but don't come here if a fanatical dieter. Portions are pretty significant. I had a business meeting over lunch and was not rushed to exit our table after our meal. Highly recommend.

Quiet night on Sunday near the airport. The deal of the day is a one cent glass of house wine; nifty! The Manager/Bartender was very helpful when I asked about a piano bar in the neighborhood. Very gracious welcoming. Entrance a little hard to find given the large office buildings to right and left.

My wife and I shared the Calamari (generous portion), Gnocchi con Filettino, and Vitello all Piccata. Each was prepared to perfection and were delicious. Service for each course was precisely timed, and our server was friendly and informative. We were there on a Sunday evening, which allowed us to enjoy the 1 cent first glass of wine. Whenever we are in Chicago, one evening is saved for dinner at Carlucci!

Service was poor, food was not prepared as ordered, and one main entre was served 10 minutes before the other.

After having dined there before and been satisfied, I will have to re-think going back again.

We've eaten here in the past on our visits to Chicago. This night we went with a group of 7. Service was inconsistent - a number of times we had to flag our waiter down for a knife, another drink, etc. The pasta prepared at table was always a fave - this night it seemed like the waiter had somewhere else to be - he threw the pasta in the cheese wheel - did a mix or 2 - then dumped the pasta on the plates. No concern for presentation - he just wanted to be done. Very disappointing - the entire night.

What a find! The food is among the best Italian cuisine I have ever had. The wine list is adequate and fairly priced. The servers were attentive, helpful and friendly, but never hovering or intrusive. The Burrata is beautiful and delicious. My Cesare salad was good, but not noteworthy. It did have a good amount of shaved parmesan which pleased me. The special risotto with lamb chops was the best risotto any of us had ever tasted. My Orecchiette with ground Tuscan sausage ragu, baby spinach and tomato cream sauce had me repeatedly sighing with delight. None of us had dessert even though the available selections were very tempting. My only wish would be for a lower sound level — but a full restaurant of people having fun and enjoying fine food is bound to have lots of happy sounds.

I would recommend this restaurant for the food only service was just ok but the restaurant itself was not the cleanest we sat down with a dirty fork left on the table and pictures on the wall dirty with food splattered (poor Keith Magnuson) pretty gross. Carmine’s in rosemont much better option 5 star across the board!!
