SJ Magazine wrote “Carlucci’s delivers serene scenery and fabulous Italian food – all close to home. Hang out at the swanky outdoor lounge before dinner (we love the white, cushioned couches) and hear live music on weekends. For dinner, we suggest Cappellini Napoli – angel-hair pasta tossed with lump crabmeat in a light cherry tomato sauce. Mangia!”
