    The waitress didn't ask how I wanted my lamb cooked and it was a bit too rare. It was also not very substantial for the price. My guests liked their meals though and the appetizer was good. We waited over an hour for the main dishes to arrive.

    Took my dad to Luciano's for Father's Day. Thought they would have a brunch menu or a lunch menu but they gave us the dinner menu instead. The food was very good as well as the service but it was noon and a piece of fish was $28+ which seemed pricey for lunch. The restaurant is beautiful so I would definitely try it if you have never been there before. Just expect to pay more if it is a holiday.

    The food was good but I am very upset that I got a phone call asking why I hadn't left a tip. I called back and was told Sorry, we found it. I didn't receive a call back telling me the tip had been found. You were quick to call and accuse me but not to call and apologize.

    We have dined many evenings at Luciano's and have never been disappointed. On this evening, we started with a soft shell crab appetizer which was juicy and delicious. For entrees, I had the seafood casserole and my wife had the sole filet francaise special. Both were fantastic and the service was excellent. We enjoyed our dinner thoroughly. Why go anywhere else?

    When you are looking for old school Italian this is the place. The stuffed veal T bone was excellent!! The gnocchi with bolo was rich in taste and just like the Aunts used to make. The wedge was very good. Nice Blue Cheese and fresh clean crisp lettuce. Service was excellent!! We were in a hurry ( headed to DMB) and Marty was spot on. His recommendations were great and he clearly knew the menu. Owner came around to the tables and said hi. I haven't seen that in awhile and my young adult kids were in awe. Davio's has lost a customer when eating in this area. You may have to pull out the flash light to look at the menu because it is on the dark side. Menu has many options. A must try if you are in the area. Bring an appetite!!

    The genuine spirit of this restaurant comes through in the superb Italian dishes, friendly and sincere service topped off by a visit by the owner himself to make sure everything is just perfect. We started off with the fresh sliced beet salad and Buffalo Mozzarella Caprese together with the complimentary Bruschetta and homemade bread and olive oil. I had the seafood special of lobster, little-necks, scallops, shrimp, mussels and calamari over homemade linguine - to die for! My wife had the Gamberi Alla Toscana and they gladly added sea scallops at her request. We broke all the rules and enjoyed a bottle of Ruffino with our seafood choices. I ended with homemade bread-pudding and Port; my wife with double-chocolate mouse. Home run!

    The food was absolutely wonderful. I had the best pork chop dish I have ever had. It was stuffed with lobster, prosciutto and mozzarella. My husband had a chicken/pasta dish that was so tender, he could cut the chicken with a fork. The service was excellent.

    I love Luciano's. It is quite far from where we live but we usually visit for special occasions, such as birthdays or anniversaries. The food is excellent. I love the "special" feel of the restaurant -- dark wood, linen tablecloths, and waitstaff in white shirts, vests and bowties. Our dinner was excellent, we enjoyed the wine, and we were brought a tiramasu dessert with a candle to top it off. A great birthday dinner!

    Went for an anniversary dinner. It's a nice place and the food was above average but it was not a great place for intimate conversation. Our waiter was very nice and attentive, but he also had a running conversation with the table next to us with a couple that were obviously regulars. Since our tables were about two feet apart we pretty much were involved with their conversation even if we didn't want to be. I was a little surprised that I was the only guy not wearing jeans - I remembered this place as a nice step up from a jeans type of place. It's just strange to me to wear jeans and pay over $40 for a steak but I guess that's just me. I'd go back but just with slightly different expectations.

    Luciano's is where my (now) wife and I went on our first date 5 years ago, and we come back every April to celebrate that occassion. The service is always great - waitstaff is friendly but not overbearing. They make sure you have what you need and they leave you to enjoy your meal. The food is excellent; both my wife and I tried something different and we both really enjoyed the new taste experience. I had the chicken francese and my wife had the walnut ravioli alfredo. Both were delicious. They only negative about the food was the vegetable of the day, which was a mix of veggies. It was either a frozen mix, or was overcooked, and was not on par with the rest of the food. But overall, a wonderful meal.

    Have been many times and this will be the first time that I gave to say the meal that I ordered was not up to Luciano's high quality that I am expecting Having ordered the veal chop Luciano in the past and loving it I thought it was safe to order the pork chop Luciano. Boy was I wrong the pork was dry the lobster was canned and what little there was was salty and there was way too much cheese. The service was as always tops.

    Lunch was great. I wish I could remember our waiter's name, he made our luncheon even more enjoyable. Great forchia and pecan rolls. The Lobster raviloli and the fish were wonderful. The tables are spread out enough that you don't interfer with the neighboring tables. Great size table so everything fit and we didn't have to shuffle plates around. We take long lunches and we didn't feel rushed or that they were waiting for us. We will definitely be back. We need to try out the rest of the desserts.

    The food was great, our waiter was friendly and knew the menu by heart. There were many specials that the waiter told us about, but it would have been nice to have them written down since it was hard to remember what they all were once he was done. The room itself was very dimly lit. This made it romantic but overly dim for casual dining. We didn't have any problems with the food although there were no choices on the menu for my vegan husband. The chef made him some pasta with mixed vegetables which was good, but not very creative. I ordered the Saltimbocca which was excellent but a little hard to eat with the dim lighting. I actually put some very fatty parts in my mouth because I couldn't tell them apart from the meat.
