  • Slow and Rude

    When we went for lunch on Sunday, even though we had made a reservation beforehand, we still had to wait about ten minutes for them to set up a table. Then the food came very, very slowly. We were there for two hours. Our waiter was very nice, and he even said he didn't know why and had asked his manager to check on the food. When we were leaving, the two people in the front did not bother to thank us or wish us a good day. Yes the restaurants had several big parties, but it's no excuse for being rude. Also, the food was mediocre. Of the three of us only one person thought his food was good. The other two didn't think so. It's certainly not of the same calibre as the good Boston restaurants.

    Dinner Saturday evening with friends was absolutely delicious. Luciano stopped by our table to introduce himself which a nice touch. The food was spectacular and our server was excellent, with a sense of humor and he made us laugh. His recommendations were fantastic choices. Everyone in the party enjoyed every bite.

    We were a bit disappointed in the overall experience considering the prices. We expected great food (generally satisfied), superior service (disappointed) and a beautiful restaurant (dated). We had our drink order delivered wrong in the lounge, very slow on the drink refills while at the table, had a hard time getting a dropped fork replaced since we had no attention and they transposed our sides (mashed/baked potato). Our waitress was pleasant and may have had too many tables. I think we expected upscale dining for this price. The food overall was plentiful and good (not great). Valet is a nice touch.

    I cannot say enough good about Luciano's. Wonderful atmosphere, food, friendly and knowledgeable staff, owner present and introduced himself to all guests. It was our anniversary and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Upon leaving we discovered our vehicle had a flat tire. Normally might dampen the evening but we just went back inside and were immediately seated in the lounge for a drink and desert and to enjoy the wonderful pianist. Valet service notified us when AAA arrived. This restaurant is a must for anyone living in the metrowest/metro Boston area and worth traveling to if you live beyond. Easy to get to Rt 1 Wrentham/Foxboro about 3 miles from Gillette stadium/Patriot Place.

    Meal was superb! Service was outstanding. I thought the ambiance could have been better. Room felt crowded and it was loud. Normal conversation was a bit difficult. Also, a little disappointed that a 7 PM reservation did not get seated until 7:30. Enjoyed the drink the bar, but felt it was too much time between reservation and seating. Perhaps, that is my issue as it was a Saturday night. On the other hand, the meal and the service were tremendous. We'll definitely go back for a special occasion.

    Luciano's delivers time after time for those seeking traditional Italian fare served by one of the best wait staffs around. The staff is great as are their recommendations and it never hurts that they will serve up pretty much whatever you request. Mama's Meatballs are out of this world and the portions are more than adequate.

    If, like us, you live in the suburbs southwest of Boston, then there are really only a small handful of really good, somewhat upscale Italian style restaurants. Unless you like going back to the same places all the time (yes, they do get to know you if that is important to you) then you must include Luciano's on that short list. A very nice property- large with lots of rooms so you are not crowded into one large space. The food was very good - almost excellent - but I reserve that rating for places that are very exceptional. My only little quarrel is that they presented such a long list of "specials", both for appetizers and entrees, that I could not remember even the few that sounded tempting. Of course no prices mentioned - annoying.

    Our server - I'll call him Mr. T - was amazing. I've seen many servers walk around looking stressed, trying to keep checking on their tables, making sure everything is ok. Mr. T knew everything was ok. He walked with purpose, knowing when something was needed at one of his tables. He checked on us, ensuring we were satisfied. He was as professional as could be, something I rarely see - even in the city. The cuisine is amazing. Lamb chops, escargot, veal, risotto, the cabernet he recommended.. out of this world. My Tom Collins was one, if not the best I've ever had. I don't know why I hesitated to visit Lucciano's before, but I won't ever do it again. My fiancee and I plan on making many more trips in the future.

    Excellent food, well prepared. knowledgable and attentive server who clearly knew the extensive menu. Ambience was fine until halfway through our meal. At that point the Maitre'd decided to add another 4 person table to a relatively small dining space. This required moving another table within 18-24 inches of ours, completely destroying what privacy we had and certainly making it unpleasant for the four people who were seated at that table as well. It also made it extremely difficult for the waitstaff to move around in the room. Among other things, we were also concerned that this was pushing the fire code limits of the room.

    We were vacationing in the area and found Luciano's on OpenTable. We are from an area in New York where we have access to loads of good restaurants. Luciano's is in the same category. The service was impeccable. Our waiter, Ryan, was very attentive and knowledgeable. In addition to the large menu there were several specials. The food was delicious and the portions were large. I saw several diners take their leftovers home. ( We were staying in a hotel and couldn't do that or we would.) I would recommend Luciano's if you enjoy good food. There were families with children dining as well as couples and some large groups. Since there are several rooms they can accommodate everyone. We will definitely be back when we are in the area again.

    Luciano's was the best food I have had on the Southshore in a long time. The service was amazing. Upon reservation, I mentioned it was our anniversary dinner. At the end of the night they presented us with a complimentary tiramisu. Overall a great dining experience. I can't wait to return to try the weekend specials as the homemade pasta was fantastic.

    From coming through the doors to leaving hours later, we felt enveloped in the warm and charm of Luciano's staff and ownership. The food was outstanding, though honestly a bit more than the average person can eat in one sitting; without appetizers! Our waiter was very attentive and watched the understaff closely. The water glasses were seldom allowed to reach empty. The owner was pleasant and welcoming even though we weren't beautiful girls. We always enjoy coming back, but the price, while definitely worth every penny, makes this a very special occasion restaurant.

    Salad, vegetable, potato with your meal. Plus a full loaf warm bread, small pizza, and cheese & crackers in the bar. So much food, we ate too much of the delicious bread. Reasonable prices. Not sure of the prices for the specials since they don't give you the prices unless you ask and I heard from others that the specials are high priced. But we would definitely go back more often. Love also that we can make a reservation for two.

The staff was friendly and attentive - the owner frequently checked in on us as well! The food was to die for! The decor to cherish! We are tough critiques when it comes to Italian food - and this is a hard one to beat! The menu has something for everyone, not to mention the vast array of specials!! We will definitely be putting Luciano's on our favorites list! It's worth the trip - and for us that's a 40 minute drive!

    The dark woods, low lighting, and hundreds of personalized celebrity photos on the walls suck you into the lounge, where aside from the one tv with the ballgame on, it could be 1966. It's great. The bartender was prompt, courteous and gave a solid pour. only complaint were the stale crackers given out with a spreadable cheese app my uncle ordered. we then sat in a secondary dining room for our main meal. everyone's food was delicious, although my luciano's signature steak was overdone. ordered medium rare, came out closer to medium well. the server immediately offered to start a new one for me, but i declined and promptly ate nearly the entire cut anyway. with the mushrooms, sauce and mashed potatoes it was easy to salvage.
