Diner Reviews
  • "Wow.. What a phenomenal experience and such a wonderful surprise. My wife and I celebrated our 7 year anniversary."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "With such few really good options in Gwinnett, this is a worthwhile choice for dining in the northeast Atlanta suburbs"
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "I have been coming to this restaurant for about 3 years now. I moved to Florida but when i come up to visit family, i meet all my friends here for lunch. This place has never disappointed me. The food here is wonderful, the service great and i look forward to coming here every time I visit Georgia, which is about 4 times a year."
    Dined on 8/22/2014
  • "Every since Luciano's opened it has been our favorite. The food, service and atmosphere is excellent. For us it is also very close. We go there often"

  • "The restaurant was very nice.The service was good.However, the Butternut Squash very disappointing."

    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "This was our second time here within a week. A friend recommended and we were very impressed with the attention to detail from the greeting to the table service. We have three kids (12,10,7) and they loved the fact that Sean would re-fold their nampkin when they got up from the table. The little things make a BIG impression! Superb wine list!!"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Luciano's never fails to give us a delicious meal. Even though we only had apps and salads, the server treated us wonderfully and the hostesses sat us at our favorite table. Beto, the Regional Manager, even stopped by to say hi and he is an outstanding guy. Thanks for the great food and service and we cannot wait to see you again!"
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Our recent visit to Lucianos was disappointing at best. Though the atmosphere is vibrant and lively the food was only fair and service was inattentive. We did not receive our drinks until we were finishing our entrees and our server wanted to keep clearing our plates before we finished. The table next to us actually had two rounds of drinks while we were still waiting. We were told they were behind at the bar. Just because we are in conversation does not necessarily mean we are finished with our meal. We told the server that we were still eating and she put our plates back. The pasta was undercooked (not al dente) and was extremely spicy (not a comfortable spicy). All in all not a great dining experience, won't be back."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "We discovered this restaurant because they joined the restaurant week. What a marvelous find. We plan to return."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "The food was delicious....service was a little sketchy at first (seemed like the waitress was talking down to us) but she got much better. Didn't care too much for the constant hovering around to "whisk" our plates away (if you weren't finished you had to HOLD on to the plate). The place was pretty loud but very clean & crisp...I will try it thru the week for lunch in the near future!"
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Great service, we were busy talking and he noticed so did not come to interrupt us. Food was delicious, my zuppa di mare was too spicy for me, so they made me another one. I did not insist, he suggested it. The best dish in my life!!!!"
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Cordial and attentive staff. Food is excellent. We will definitely be going back."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Delicious food, wonderful atmosphere, and excellent service. Wonderful gem to have so close to home. Thank goodness they participated in restaurant week 2014, otherwise, I would not have gone. I had seen the restaurant upon attending a concert at Gwinnett Center a year ago; thinking that I may want to try it one day. Upon arrival it does not look as beautiful as it is inside. The décor takes you to another world entirely. This restaurant is upscale but not pretentious. The servers are extremely attentive, yet not bothersome. Their many offerings are tasty and delicious enough for any foodie. Can't wait to go back!"
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "This restaurant was a surprising find tucked away in a Kroger plaza. I only knew about them because they were a host for Gwinnett restaurant week with 3 courses for $21.21pp. The shrimp appetizer in tomato sauce was delicious, as was the salmon stuffed with real crabmeat entree and the dessert of chocolate covered pb ice cream. The food, our server Sean and the experience itself was perfect. Couldn't have been better. Glad to have discovered this hidden gem & at such a great price due to the special with restaurant week."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "This place never lets me down. Food and service is always great. This time they were really busy because of the restaurant week and we still had a memorable experience. Great restaurant without the drive to down town Atlanta."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Great food & fantastic service, we have been here many times and never dissapoint."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "I've eaten at Luciano's 8 or 10 times. I would describe the food as amazing. 5 stars easily. I was very excited to go for restaurant week, and unfortunately, was very disappointed with the appetizers and main dishes. We had all of them between the group, and nothing was particularly good. Wouldn't say inedible, although the pork chop approached it, and the salmon had an off flavor. The desserts were excellent, as usual. I would recommend for any time of year other than restaurant week. This place is usually a hidden gem."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "we are always pleased with our experience at Luciano's, yet we did find the pizza crust tonight to be very limp and the request for shrimp and grits as a dinner item was replaced by shrimp and polenta...shrimp appetizers were exceptional... shrimp and polenta shrimp were lacking... polenta is a poor substitute and served 5 minutes after my companions..."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "First time, and it won't be the last. Our waitress was extremely patient with taking our order, and when we finally nailed down our choices, she was very quick to continue the excellent customer service throughout the meal. All the staff was very friendly, and the atmosphere was very relaxing."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Completely satisfied. Luciano's will always be a top choice for fine dining. It could be a little less noisy."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "I dined at Luciano's with three other people. The wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable. The menu is straightforward Italian, with steaks, chicken, veal, and various pasta selection. I had the veal picatta, and found it flavorful though a bit on the tough side for my liking. The other guests had chicken parmaggiana and chicken marsala. It was "good", but not extraordinary. The caesar salad was very good. However, it was too LOUD in the restaurant, with live music that was completely out of place for the kind of restaurant it was, to the point of not being able to hear the person sitting next to you. It made NO SENSE to have live music in this restaurant, or at least, such LOUD live music. Because of this, I would not return."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Fantastic waitress who was very kind and attentive to our group of 5 in addition to having another large table to 10+. Though I'm from the west coast, I had the Atlantic salmon which was great. Everyone in our group was very pleased with their meal."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "I was there this time for a small group (7) business dinner and everyone enjoyed it very much. Whether I sit at bar, have brunch, lunch or dinner-the food & service is usually very good."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Great dinner at Luciano's on Thursday the 20th of June. Wonderful meal. Had the veal parmigiana which is probably as good as I've ever had. Was delicious. Washed that down with an Aglianico Taurasi that was magnificent!!"
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Had I paid attention to the price before arriving, I would have balked. But overall I'm quite glad we went. The brunch buffet is a thrice-yearly event at Luciano's (Easter, Mother's Day, and Father's Day) and is worth it for these special occasions. My wife completely enjoyed the peel 'n eat shrimp, while my daughter and I went for prime rib and lamb. I finished up with a waffle and bacon, because... well, bacon! And the carmel-apple pie was a great dessert! More money than I'd typically spend, but definitely a BIG step above other special occasion buffets I've been to. Worth a try if you've got the budget for a special occasion."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I have been here on several occasions. Food and service are consistently good."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "This was our second dinner visit and it did not disappoint. Food and service were both great. Great atmosphere without being pretentious or stuffy. Not cheap by any means but not overpriced. Nice place to take out of town company without the hassle of driving to Buckhead or Midtown."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Let me start by saying the service is absolutely wonderful! ! The food unfortunately is very bland. Went there for the first time for. Mother's day brunch and enjoyed everything I ate. Went back about a month later for dinner and was highly disappointed. If Italian authenticity means no seasoning then they are the real deal. Food is visually appealing but ends there. Between the 3 people at our table we tried the scallop appetizer, the chicken wing appetizer, the mushroom ravioli, the fettuccine alfredo, cow girl steak, mushroom risotto, and the banana bread pudding. All tasted like it was prepared for an elderly person on a restricted diet. We will not be returning though the prices are reasonable."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Excellent! Everything was cooked to perfection, lovely presentation and the flavors were wonderful. Atmosphere is elegant - linen table cloths & napkins, soft lighting, soft music, etc. I'll be back! My only complaint was our waiter. One person ordered 4 appetizers, wanting two of them as a main course, and the waiter asked us which appetizers he wanted to receive first. We told him, and he disagreed with us, saying it would be easier for HIM if he brought the other two appetizers first. We complied, but it messed up our dining. The other person's main course arrived first, so we sat and waited (not wanting to eat his main course!). Then when the main course arrived for everyone else, the appetizers arrived. Bad timing, unnecessary."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Highly recommend, especially for lunch. Take clients here very often."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "I don't live in the area so I don't go there for dinner but lunch is always awesome."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "It's a pretty bad showing when both my wife and I have to return our entrees because they're terrible. How can an Italian restaurant overcook pasta? How do you overcook veal to the point of being inedible? Lamb oso buco becomes dried out after being described as "fall off the bone tender." Maybe it was just a bad night but I scratched this one off my list."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "I've been here for lunch a dozen times and it's always good. This hidden gem is surrounded by boring chain restaurants and is a welcome change from the usual suspects."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "We really enjoyed dinner on a quiet Sunday evening. Cathy gave us the best possible service. The veal marsala was very good, as was the chicken picata, though a little heavy on the picata. $100 plus tip was right on the nose."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "A really nice restaurant. Great Food, served hot by friendly efficient waitpersons. Go every time I am in town. Excellent Steaks and Seafood and very reasonable prices."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "We were greeted and seated promptly. Our server, Sean, was attentive yet unobtrusive. Others on staff were aware of keeping our water glasses filled, removing empty plates, etc, and this was done in a manner that their presence was hardly noticed. Meals were good. However, the calamari (which I've had there before) was barely okay. It didn't have much taste and some pieces were over cooked. Overall, our experience at Luciano's was very good."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "Excellent Restaurant, never disappoints we have been coming here since they open and it gets better and better now they offer a great variety of hand cut steaks "
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "We have been to this restaurant several times-the food is always excellent-we have never had bad service, however, I think our waiter was new. He did not know the specials or the wine list--I did call the next day to complain to the manager--she was nice and assured me he would get more training--we will go back for sure--hopefully service will be better- "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "This place is a real gem! The food is awesome and the service is outstanding. Italian is very good but the steaks are a good as it gets! Perfect place to enjoy dinner before a concert or just a nice night out!"
