    First visit non-holiday time. They did a great job of spreading people out throughout the entire restaurant so it was not very crowded, though still busy for a random Tuesday night. Though the many specials sounded fabulous, I still went with my standby, chicken parm. Excellent, huge portion but so good. The salad it come with was just the right size with excellent house dressing. Bread was great, service outstanding. Highly recommended.

    Went to Luciano's to celebrate my son achieving his adult black belt. They were running late so we had to wait 20 minutes past our reservation time to get seated which was a bit of a false start and nuisance. Once seated all four of us had great meals and the service was solid as usual. They have always done a nice job and I will continue to return.

    We went out to celebrate my son's birthday and everything from the moment we arrived was perfect. The food was absolutely fantastic. We had a special of scallops casino which were very different and delicious - tender succulent scallops in a seafood stuffing with Italian bacon and spices. Each of us tried a different special but you cannot go wrong with anything on the menu (and they literally have many, many dishes to select from). Our waiter was on top of everything and Luciano stopped by to wish my son Happy Birthday. Trust me, you will have a meal to remember at Luciano's - I can't wait to go back!

    We've been to Luciano's a couple of times in the past and enjoyed it each time. Some may refer to their customers as "older" or "mature", but we're now in our early 40's and found MANY couples/families there in our age range. It also depends on which dining room you sit in....some are darker and more romantic or eclectic....others are bigger, brighter and more vibrant. It's up to you - plenty of choices to guide your experience. The hospitality is very good, from the hostesses to the wait staff to management. All came by to wish us a happy anniversary, which was unexpected. Food was excellent! Many great choices - all with big portions. Good wine list too. Just be sure to bring a good memory as the specials list is long.

    We really enjoyed the food and the service but I was a little disappointed and I don't know if it was with the restaurant or Open Table. When I made my reservation on line, the question was asked if this was a special occasion. Well, I indicated that it was my 44th Wedding Anniversary. Pretty significant ! Not only was there no acknowledgement at any time, during our dinner 2 other couples were acknowledged and congratulated for their anniversary.

    Stuffed mushrooms contained a small sliver of clear glass. A "manager"-did not give her name or position appeared- did not apologize I am a retired food safety educator and that piece of glass was a physical hazard. I would have liked to know what action was being taken in the kitchen so this did not happen to someone else. Needless to say our group will not be returning in the future. As a food safety educator, I would suggest that food handling practices, etc in all parts of the establishment- from receiving to service be reviewed.

    Scented candles? What a horror. Who in their right mind would light scented candles (many) in a restaurant? Let's see...food...taste...all covered with the scent of candles! In my nose, in my throat, on my tongue, and on my clothes. There can't be anyone in that place that actually knows anything about food or eating. You should really close it down.

    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.

    Dined on 9/27/2014
    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.

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.
