We always love Lucetis for any occasion! Food is great, service is good, drinks are strong, and it is always consistent! What more can you ask for? Highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a traditional Italian meal and an awesome cocktail.

First time for me to visit Luceti's and it was Wonderful. My girlfriends and I haven't been out to dinner together in almost a year. We were greeted with the sweetest Waitress, she was very kind and welcoming. Food was so good and great value for the portion size. We can't wait to go back.

My sole was Luke warm, I’d rather have the sliced scalloped potatoes like in the past, super loud...a large table of drunk ladies, cold because the door was open, defeated the purpose of sitting inside!

Considering we're in COVID and everything is outside and everyone is trying so hard to stay afloat and do the best they can....I give everything top marks.

The garlic bread is always great - Chicken Jerusalem is always great (tho, prefer bone in)

My husband and I had Thanksgiving dinner here that evening. Although they offered a special Thanksgiving menu, we chose the limited ala cart menu with their popular Italian dishes.
Dining was outside seating with powerful heat lamps which is a plus. They did offer indoor dining, but I hesitated only because it was a little too crowded for me especially with COVID protocols to abide by. Everything was fresh And generous portions. The tiramisu dessert was homemade and oh so very delicious! Everything was delicious! The servers and the owners were professional, friendly and warm people. They made us feel like family.

Although it was just my husband and I for Thanksgiving due to the pandemic, we had a great time. We sat outside and enjoyed our turkey dinner. In fact, we both commented how delicious the meal was and that was before the slice of pumpkin pie arrived.

Very accommodating. Safe clean friendly captured the pace we wanted to dine at. Drinks were well-made and not watered down. Great wine selection. Best bread ever-served on separate plates to each of us (party of 4).

I can’t think of anything negative about this restaurant. The service can’t be beat, there was great parking nearby, food was great and good value. So nice to have this as a choice. First time I dined indoors since probably February and I felt perfectly safe here.

- Hard to find someone to greet us for our reservation
- bartender was rude
- had to ask twice for bread and silverware
- cheese and meat appetizer was missing the calamari
- food tasted fantastic and came out quick
- drinks were really good as well

Went to the new Sunday Brunch - OMG it was great. Sat on the new outdoor seating and had a great time and the food was great. The Tiramisu crepes were to die for. Will come back just for them. The owner Paul, was a great host and all staff took care of us; they would not let my coffee get warm. Will be back!!

I love Luceti's, however I ordered the Rib Eye Steak and it had so much fat. I realize fat is part of that cut of meat, but this was way over the top. It won't stop me from going back, I just wouldn't order that item again. The service was great!

My first choice for any occasion! I invited my parents to visit me all the way from Southern California for my dad's 65th birthday. I chose Luceti's because I wanted the night to be special - and it truly was! In fact, we came here for my partner's birthday back in October, too! We live within walking distance and have come here so many times because we feel right at home, love the food, and have always had positive experiences. We love how the owner treats everyone like family. Can't wait to come here again, either for a random date night or for a big family celebration! We love you, Luceti's!
