Carlucci's Italian Restorante

Dave, Dale, and I went over to Carlucci's Italian Restorante on N. Andrews Ave and Cypress Creek for lunch. They have some great tasting lunch specials at cheap prices. Our server, Mike, was on the ball and after bringing our drinks he dropped off a basket of some of the best garlic rolls I have ever eaten. He told us to be careful because they were addictive. I tend to agree........

After a few minutes the food appeared. Dale got a salad to start. Dave had a piece of pizza and he and I had a cup of deliciously creamy pasta fagioli.

When we finished the first course the main dish promptly arrived. Dave had a half meatball parmigiana; Dale had the penne and sausage; and I had an off the menu special recommended by Mike, a half muffaletta.

Penne with Sausage
 The muffaletta was great. Grilled cold cuts topped with fresh mozzarella cheese, tomato, and creamy vinaigrette dresssing (with a little extra on the side).

I'm sure I'll be coming back to Carlucci's for another dose of their fine frugal fare. Good food, good prices, and good service all add up to a great experience. Check out Carlucci's the next time you need some Italian food and tell them you read about it at
