Luciano's - Alpharetta reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Disappointed.....
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/31/2012
    I was a little disappointed in this restaurant. Italian is my favorite food and I have eaten at many Italian restaurants all over the world, including in Italy....and although the service was excellent, the food was not up to the prices charged.... There are too many other Italian restaurants, and other restaurants in general in the area for me to chose from, so I doubt I'll return to Luciano's again, and would certainly not recommend it.On the website it had advertised a new appetizer....which I ordered for my friend and I.....but was told that it wasn't available because they didn't have the new menus....so why advertise it!!!

    Food is always great, this time tried the lamb chops and they were great. Usually the service is outstanding but this time the waitress was not as outstanding as in the past, not bad but just average. If looking for great Italian food in vibrant atmosphere with very friendly staff I would highly recommend.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010

    We made reservations and dressed up to celebrate my daughter's birthday at what we hoped would be a memorable restaurant. When we arrived we were placed in a section of the restaurant that had families in shorts and flip flops and walk in customers. If I wanted a casual dining experience I would have gone to the local chain restaurant and had the same loud children in their beach gear sitting with us but at half the price. The service was good. Will I be back? Not for a while.

  • Luciano's- a must visit dining spot
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 6/30/2012
    Our first visit to a neighborhood gem. My wife's birthday dinner and her request for Zuppa de Mare were both excellently served by our visit to Luciano's. Although the restaurant is acoustically challenged, the entire experience was worth the visit. The food was served steaming hot from the kitchen, flavors were nuanced, portions generous but not ridiculous, pricing was reasonable, and service was attentive but non-obtrusive by Carina. Definitely a must-visit for our Johns Creek neighbors.

    VAC8IONVIP
    Dined on 6/28/2012
    What a pleasant surprise this place was. We're foodies from Central Florida, and were looking for a good Italian restaurant in the Roswell/Alpharetta area. Luciano's came recommended by a friend. Even the other couple that was dining with us had never been there before. Our great experience started at the door with a warm greeting, and went on to the wonderful server, and then, there was the food. Great salads, and good meals all around. I had a bone in veal chop with a very well-done demi. Another in our party had the Chilean Sea Bass and her husband had the Flounder. My wife had the crazy lasagne. All very very good.

    This is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant. Easy to get to, ample parking. More important, the food is wonderful. Ample portion of well-seasoned basic Italian fare. Pasta is prepared perfectly, samples are very generous. Wait-staff is courteous and well-informed. Will definitely go back...soon.

    The food was mediocre- the best thing we ate was the antipasto platter but how hard it that? My scallops were overladen with butter and just too rich. The other dishes my family had: spaghetti w/ meatballs, chicken scallopini and veal picatta were just okay. Nothing to write home about.

    I was disappointed since I go to the location on Sugarloaf all the time and LOVE it but in comparison this experience was a let down. The bread wasn't warm enough, my flat bread was luke warm and soggy. There were no other people there when we got there and two other people came while we were there. Given only 3 tables to take care of I would've expected our food to be perfect.

    Excellent food and service until the end when our waiter became obviously overwhelmed. He came by to offer dessert,which we were going to order, but then never came back. It was like we didn't exist and he was a great waiter until that point!!! I finally had to bring our credit card to the hostess so she could let the waiter know we were ready to go. He then brought our check without even an apology. Again, he was clearly overwhelmed, as he had tables all over the restaurant, literally. But that won't deter us from going back. We have been here several times and never had an issue with service or food.

    Went to their Mother's Day brunch buffet. We had reservations at 11:30 (brunch started at 11:00) by noon half the serving trays were empty, their pizza bar was wiped out and the desert table was completely gone. Unfortunately they seemed completely unprepared to handle their reservations and an event like this. The highlight was the fantastic service we had from our waiter, Ricardo, who was very professional and provided us alternatives direct from the kitchen. The food we did have was very good. This was our first time at Luciano's and I'm guessing this was not their typical performance but still very disappointing. We will probably give them a second chance on a regular night - hopefully a better experience next time.

    There were 4 of us and we found our entrees to be very good. Our salads were not the best. The downfall here was the service. Our waiter was not terribly attentive and he spilled a glass of wine down the back of one of the people at our table. We have been coming here since this restaurant opened and the attitude of the staff is consistently the one thing that I find there to be room for improvement in. The level of chatter was quite high and in spite of the higher ticket menu would keep me from calling this a special occasion choice.

    I love Luciano's! Whether it's the Sugarloaf Location (near my office) or the Alpharetta / Duluth location (near my home), the staff is always upbeat, courteous and on top of what they're doing. The food is prepared in a timely manner and it always comes hot to the table. You can't beat the value of their lunch menu. I recently had a 3 course lunch for $12! I also like the fact that you can arrive casual or in a suit and feel comfortable either way. The decor allows for both.
