Home-Style goodness and fun ambience! – "kitschy Italian restaurant" is an excellent descriptor!
This is NOT your "cookie cutter" chain Italian resturant!
It is privately own and managed with tender loving care!
We love the tiny lights that sparkle in the ceiling like stars!
The food is fabulous, priced right, and portions are generous. This is THE restaurant we take family to for celebrations, visitors to for good food, and ourselves for great meal!
Simply the Best – This is hands down the best Italian food in Vegas. If you are visiting there is no need to spend $35-$40 a plate at the wynn or the belagio. I am 100% Sicilian and I know what good italian food is suppose to taste like and this is it.
BE PREPARED, YOU BETTER BE HUNGRY ! – SERVICE IS EXCELLENT, HUGE PORTIONS, VEAL PARM IS THE BEST ON THE WEST COAST, PRICES ARE EXTREMELY REASONABLE. SALADS ARE LARGE, EVEN THE HOT ROLLS ARE VERY GOOD.
FOOD IS SO GOOD YOU CAN'T STOP EATING !
Amazing! – I've lived in Vegas all my life, and Carluccio's is one of my favorite Italian places. The service was prompt and extremely friendly. The food comes in pretty big portions and tastes heavenly.
Best Real Italian Food !!! – Being born in Italy the only Italian Food that gives Carluccio's a run for the MONEY is Mama or Grandma's Sunday dinners that use to start at 1 pm and end when ever, It felt like a conveyer belt of food that never ended of taste and love, Carluccio's in my opinion taste especially that sauce is full of love, the atmosphere is like at a realitives Sunday Dinner relaxed family atmosphere that makes the taste even better, The Staff and patrons are like Family to everyone that goes thru the beautifully carved doors, I have seen famous singers like Barry Manilow before his show at the Hilton and even young favorite Facia enjoying great Italian food Family style ,even talking with me a table away from them, Great Taste and enjoyment Like a New York San Gennaro Feaste on the block, God Bless everyone at Carluccio's Best Food ,Best Staff, Best Atmosphere, Madone I think I'm In Heaven...
Best kept secert in Vegas – Great Italian food off the strip. Great old time Vegas atomshere. It is said that ghost of Liberace still haunts the bar. Great find, maybe the best kept secert in Vegas.
Relive Liberace's rhinestoned heyday with heaping portions of Italian grub at this off-Strip joint. – In Short
Formerly owned by Liberace, this kitschy Italian restaurant provides unique flair to conventional fare. Tiny lights bejewel the ceiling and mirror-covered walls, sparkling like his costumes. Curiosities like the piano-shaped bar and Liberace's personal, mirrored piano also stand out, but other rooms are surprisingly commonplace, with wicker chairs and white trellises. Local families congregate for casual celebrations, so multiple renditions of "Happy Birthday" may be heard during one visit.
Not a Good choice – We where seated promptly. Bread was delivered with no butter I asked the waiter for some butter. 10 min passed I had to as a bus person if he could get use some butter. We ordered calamari and zucchini for a appetizers. Calamari had no flavor. Spaghetti with meatball / spaghetti with sausage. The meatball was bland. This sauce was flavorless/runny. The table we sat at was wobbly.
Better than the Wynn! – Less than a week before visiting Carluccio's (last night), I had dinner in the Wynn's "best Italian seafood restaurant" -- and from the salad to the seafood, Carluccio's put them to shame!
At Carluccio's I ordered Seafood Diablo - huge, tender clams, mussels and shimp with petite bay scallops done as perfectly as the other, larger pieces of seafood. Calamari appetizer -- tender squid, oil-less breading - hot marinara! My companion had white clam sauce with linguine - not whole clams, but large, meaty chuncks; enormous portion; teriffic. Chilled salad plates held large portion of good-quality Caesar salad. Really - the ONLY thing the Wynn had on this restaurant was more authentic bread and a big fat bill!!!
If you want great Italian food without the Wynn's price tag - go to Carluccio's!
And another reviewer is correct -- Martini IS a special guy!
Best of the Best – Carluccio's is the best Italian resturant I have ever experianced, Martini is the absolute best waiter in the whole town of Vegas he genually cares about his customers and is a person friend of the Famous singer Facia....
