Carlucci in Rosemont Will Accomodate the Vegan Gluten-Free

The last time I visited Carlucci in Rosemont an Italian restaurant was maybe 4 years ago.  Last night I made my return debut and was quite surprised by the food selection.   They will accommodate the gluten-free challenge but not so much the vegan.  People that don’t consume carcass tend to scare caveman restaurant owners.
