  • Food is awesome - except one
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 6/27/2008
    Food is awesome - except one of us ordered the Filet Mignon, medium well. Came out rare. We sent it back, then it came out burnt. Sent it back again, it came out a 3rd time - but still rare. At this point, the other members in our party were done eating so we said skip the Filet all together. Of course they didn't make us pay for it, but they didn't seem too apologetic about it. They didn't seem to care that 2 of us ate and our third person just watched us eat while waiting for the Filet. Kind of ruined the experience.

    This was the first time we had been to Lucianos. It was the most memorable anniversary we have ever had. Our waiter Robert was great and really made the night special. We plan to keep Lucianos as our every year anniversary dinner restaurant. Of course not including any other time we will go again. And we hope to someday use one of the function rooms for a special event. It is definately top of the line and we would recommend it to anyone.

    We love this restaurant. We go for every special occasion. It's like a little of the North End out in the suburbs. Mr. Luciano (and now his son) personally walk around to the tables to make sure everything is up to par. The low lighting is very romantic. We always request a booth, space is limited on the floor. We also always try to get there early to enjoy a bottle of wine in the lounge prior to dining. The pianist/band is always enjoyable or there's game on the TV. All of this on top of the best food outside of Boston. The salmon, veal, chicken boccacini, caesar salad, tiramisu...can't be beat. There is a huge variety of food to please everyone.

    I love Luciano's, the food is a bit pricey but very worth it and delicious. The service is usually good, but a lot of that depends on your server. Our server this past visit was ok, but not fabulous as some can be. Marty is one of the great ones! It's a great place to celebrate birthdays, anniversarys etc. as well as larger groups for meetings and parties.

    Luciano's was busy at 5pm on a Saturday - I'm glad I made reservations. The service was relatively quick for such a busy night and the food was amazing. Luciano's is not cheap, but I found it woth every penny. The personal touch in the form of a visit from the owner really made the night special.

    The food was absolutely delicious & the service was wonderful. We have been there a number of times and have never been disappointed. It's especially nice to see the owner making his rounds of the tables & speaking personally to the diners. The only suggestion we have is that when the waiter/waitress lists the specials, that they also include the prices. Sometimes customera are embarrassed to ask & if the prices are included on the regular menu, why not include them with the specials?

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 4/27/2008
    We went there for an anniversary dinner. The appetizer was not what we expected, much less than what we had anticipated. The pre-meal breads were delicious. The meals we had, which were specials (filet mignon with lobster & asparagus in Bernaise sauce & swordfish with 2 shrimp & artichokes) were good, but disappointingly smaller than we had expected, especially for the price. We were remiss in not asking the price for the two meals, but we feel the prices should have been stated, as they were considerably higher than all other meals listed on the menu. The total was very high considering the ambiance and the location we sat at. It will be a long while (if we do) go back there.

The other 3 entrees were good. Our calamari appetizer was also barely warm. The chairs were somewhat uncomfortable ( metal?). We sat near the back terrace.

    We(2 couples) dined at Luciano's a couple of weeks ago and the food was so outstanding we decided to return again on the 19th. We feel that this time the food was not satisfing at all. I ordered the exact same food items as my last visit so I expected the same quality. Three of us sent back our steaks because they were only slightly warm.My baked potato was also cool but I didn't notice it until my steak was already being reheated.I decided to just eat it the way it was. Two of us had the filet mignon and the men had the procini rub del. steak w/12 yr aged balsami. We dine almost every weekend in Providence, RI on Federal Hill at the best restaurants so we felt this experience was very disappointing. We heard that the owner was not there!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 4/12/2008
    Luciano's is the best Italian restaurant in our area. The waitstaff is learned and polished. Within minutes of being seated, we were served water, followed by a waiter offering lemon for it. Our server, Xiomara, remembered at least 8 options as part of their Menu Specials. My husband and I went on a Saturday night for dinner, and it was very busy, not an empty table. Even so, our appetizer, salads and main courses arrived timely and we did not feel rushed to finish and get out of there. Everything was perfectly cooked and served. I recommend making a reservation. If you prefer a quieter dining atmosphere, I would go before 6pm and after 9pm.

The wait staff is excellent with children and shows concern when you are tempted to order something that might be seasonally overpriced. The restaraunt is expensive but it is not the kind of place you go to for a beer and buffaloe wings. It has become our prime place for special occassions. I highly recommend Luciano's.

    Food was good and exceptionally hot (Temp). Had to ask for butter for our bread and found out , after the fact, that other patrons not only recieved butter automatically but also recieved herb infused oil as a bread dip. The bus boy asked if we wanted more bread and when we said no, he removed the bread basket that still had bread in it. We didn't want more until we had finished what we had. We found it very strange that the dessert menu had no prices listed. Are they so steep the management didn't want to scare us? Since we didn't want to ask the prices, we ordered nothing.

    The only negative aspect was that our waitress greeted us, gave numerous specials and asked to take our order before we had a chance to look at the menu. When we said we need a few minutes, she did not return for 45 min, and we were unable to get her attention as she attended to tables around us. We missed our slot and service was then significantly delayed on this busy night. Tables were close and busy.
