    I have visited Luciano's atleast 6+ times in the past two years. The restaurant has such a lovely ambiance, food is always excellent and service is great. The bread with the dip at the start of the meal is soooo good and the flatbreads are absolutely delish. The lunch prie fix menu is an exceptional deal and all the food was tasty and the desserts incredible! I will keep coming back and sending my friends here too!

    First, our service was outstanding.....It couldn't have been more perfect. Two of my friends had the most perfect entrees......They were magazine-photo-worthy, and they loved every bite. However, I had the lobster ravioli which is done with Prince Edward Island mussels in a broth. The ravioli were much too al dente and barely warm! I didn't want to say anything since I was playing host and had made the dinner plans. The taste was fine, but the food wasn't even close to being hot. The mussels were minute in size.....broth was good.....The dinner salad prior to the entree was full of white lettuce and not memorable......That could be SO improved upon! We topped off the meal with delicious decaf cappuccino that I would actually go back for. I can't say enough about how well we were greeted and how lovely we were treated, but for the price, there should be some more attention to detail.

    All four of us liked our meals which varied from veal marsala to steak at this Italian fine dining restaurant. The waiter was very good and gave great wine recommendations. We loved that it was a short 8-10 minute walk to Gwinnett Arena across the street. We had dinner and drinks before a concert - definitely a great way to go. The décor was done well; very stylish. The atmosphere for dinner was dark, but energetic - noisy actually at times. There seemed to be a lot of groups of varying sizes there for special occasions on a Wednesday night. It was busy on a week day night, but service was good - a very good sign!

    What a lovely find on my first trip to the rather remote Lawrenceville area. The darkened windows mean you really get a "WOW!!!" when you open the door to walk in. The service was relaxed but attentive, the food was great with generous portions. The dessert menu looked fantastic, but I was too full. I can see going back there some night just for one of their great sounding cocktails and dessert.

    My wife was looking forward to having the Zuppa Di Mare as she had it the last time she was here and raved about it. Not so on this evening. it did not have the great flavor as before, and clams and mussels inside the shells were extremely small - also loaded with fish instead of the other seafood. We will not order this dish again.

    We dine at Luciano's at least once every few months and have always loved it. Here's the but. Two of the three of us ordered a flatbread pizza that included white anchovies. The fish smelled bad, both diners had to remove the anchovies. One ate most of the remaining pizza, the other only add a few bites as the smelly anchovies permeated the rest of the dish. The next day the diner who finished most of his said his stomach ached all day. The restaurant, and Danielle our server, did comp one of the pizzas and offered a free dessert, but the night (our anniversary) was pretty much a dud. We will go back again after a while.

    My husband and I met our daughter and son-in-law for dinner at Luciano's on Sugarloaf Parkway. We had a 7:00 reservation and were seated immediately . We had never eaten there, but my research on the internet made me interested. We were impressed with the number of Italian dishes offered on the menu, and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The service was wonderful and our server was very knowledgable on the wine and the food and, at our request, made recommendations. Although it was a little pricey (salads do not come with the meal but can be ordered separately for around $4.50), we felt it was well worth the cost. We will definitely be back!

    This is my second time to Luciano's, and it reinforced what I remembered. Though it is in a Kroger shopping center, once you're inside its a whole different story. The ambience is very nice, reasonably quite, and has a high class feel. The food was delicious, the service was excellent too. The only thing I didn't care for is what appears to be sauce for the excellent crusty artisan style bread, it's actually sun dried tomatoes with olive oil. It's not terrible, just not my thing. I'd suggest asking for butter, or some actual sauce, which was very good. It's really not a negative, merely my own personal preference. I definitely recommend Luciano's !! BTW The prices are more than reasonable for the food and experience.
