Very enjoyable dining experience.Very enjoyable dining experience. Looking forward to my next visit.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was absolutely delicious!It was absolutely delicious! We all had a fabulous dining experience. Excellent wait staff and entrees were delicious!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in ACLuke's is the best restaurant in AC... The chef-owner has created a clever and distinctive menu with enough choices to satisfy yet not so many that you wonder (rightfully so) how they can all be prepared well... The Grissini appetizer - prociutto, and truffle buter breadsticks are fabulous. The gnocchi - seasonal preparation are light and delicious and the gelato/lemoncello & espresso dessert is delightful. Luke is a welcoming host and the room is Tuscan style Italian in fine taste. There may be other restaurants as good in AC but I have not experienced any that are better.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceWe went there to celebrate my parents 39th Wedding Anniversary. The food was amazing, service was superb. Jerry out waiter was great, he knew the menu and answered all our questions. Can't wait to go back.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulWe have been to Luke Palladino's three times. The food and service are great. We have also tried the fixed price which is offered for $39. We have enjoyed going to Luke Pallandino's restaurant, and will continue going there!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWas my first time there. ReallyWas my first time there. Really enjoyed it. Very relaxing and the wait staff was excellent. Wouldn't hesitate to do it again.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe ambience sitting in aThe ambience sitting in a booth with a view of the kitcen in action is excellent. The overall dining experience is upscale and very, very good. Perhaps because we're discriminating italians, the preparation of the pasta was different to us and not to our liking. This was not our first time visiting this restaurant and we would go back.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe only problem we foundThe only problem we found is the bartender, Mike. We have been to this restaurant several times, he does not acknowledge you when you sit down at bar. He is disrespectful. He needs training as a bartender.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe brought my mom to LukeWe brought my mom to Luke Palladino for her 60th birthday. The appetizers were okay, but the main courses were very good. Our service was excellent until a large group came in - then we were kind of an after thought - but overall we had a very good experience and would definitely go back.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA great addition to AC dining..topA great addition to AC dining..top notch in every way.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMI enjoyed our experience veryI enjoyed our experience very much..

Awesome food and great service!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMA Dining experince deligt!We fell in love with the place at our first dining experience there when they first opened. All of the entrée's are made from scratch, many of them are unique in that they are not your normal Italian fare. The salads and appetizers are delicious and meant to tickle your pallet. The restaurant staff from the greeter at the door, the Maître D and the wait staff arw attentive, pleasant, efficient and customer oriented. The restaurant is pleasing to the eye with ambient soft lighting, pleasant music, creative art work celebrating Italy, creating an atmosphere made for fine dining and pleasing experience. By far the best restaurant at Harrah's in our opinion and that is why we continue to come back!3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMMy crew and I have dined atMy crew and I have dined at Luke Palladino's many times, and have not been disappointed. We have dined from the regular menu and the prix fixe menu. Each dining experience has been excellent as the food is always fresh and flavorful. The service is attentive and overall ambiance is relaxing.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMNice,quiet,good food. TheNice,quiet,good food. The head waiter is a long time AC waiter who we recognized from 20 years ago. We enjoy an elegant, relatively quiet place with good food - and we were not disappointed.The servers were attentive. The cappuccino was weak (surprising for an Italian restaurant). Overall, we were satisfied and would recommend to others.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMNice parent night outMy husband and I had a wonderful experience. The food was very delicious and the portion was just enough. The service was great also.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMI made a booking error onI made a booking error on open table. I embarrassingly selected the next day instead of present day. The hostess very kindly accommodated our group of three at a high top table right off from the bar. We had two servers, who seemed to need a bit more communication BUT were gems in and of themselves. The sangria. Oh that sangria ! Finally a sangria without tons of sugar--it really showcased the depth of the wine!
The calamari appetizer was perfect. Crispy and chewy. Seasoned wonderfully with a great sauce!
I had the carbonara. It was divine. Meaty, creamy, decadent. My only compliant was that it was so rich I couldn't eat more!!! My friends had the gnocchi (delicious) and the bologonase which were also great! Highly recommend !3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMpleasant atmosphere, attentivepleasant atmosphere, attentive service, food was very well prepared and delicious3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe very best - anywhere!This was our first visit to Luke Palladino since my wife and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary here several months ago. As always, we immediately commented that we really need to get here more often, despite the 4 hour drive. With the possible exception of Luke's wonderful restaurant a few miles away in Northfield, this remains the absolute best restaurant of any variety in AC, and perhaps anywhere else. We live near DC, and are surrounded by great restaurants, but definitely for any special occasion, we make the 4 hour drive to dine here, and it is the key factor in our decision to go to AC at any time. This is a great kitchen managed by a brilliant chef, supported by perfect service. The best managed restaurant anywhere!12/29/2012 12:00:00 AM
