    Had a reservation but still needed to wait a half hour for a table even though there was several empty tables. There was grease stains all over the menus. Food we received was cold in the center and not cooked all the way through. Was situated between 2 really large parties that really should have had their alcohol cut off: and it was unfortunate that all the drunken obnoxious behavior lead to kick off a developmentally disabled gentlemen that decided to rock back and forth furiously while screaming the entire meal. The waiter also dumped a glass of water on my phone. The whole experience from start to finish was unpleasant at best. At $50 a plate I expect a lot better. I used to really like this place: however I feel they are really beginning to slip. I will think twice before returning.

    Our server seemed very disinterested and distracted. We felt rushed and unattended the entire time. This was my second time at the restaurant. It was a completely different experience from the first time. When I asked questions about the menu, he spoke really fast and monotone. Even the host who sat us practically threw the menu in my husband's lap and rushed off. We had plans after dinner and we wanted to get the check. We waited for a long time for him to come back to the table to give it to us. Overall, I did not enjoy the experience. On top of our experience, we had a pretty wobbly table. I would give them another chance but I'd probably think twice before recommending this place. I would like to see some consistency before recommending this place to others.

    Great dinner spot. Concert at Gas South Arena so place was packed. Drove an hour and during that time we had multiple texts and phone calls from the hostesses ( threatened to cancel our reservation - We were on route and 10 minutes early. ) Only negative thing in the entire evening.

    Nice place. That’s why I was a bit disappointed in the lasagne. When I think of lasagne, I think of sauce, ricotta, and meat between alternating layers of pasta. What I got was 6 or 7 layers of lasagne noodle stuck together with sauce on top. If you enjoy biting into a half-inch slab of lasagne noodles, you might really enjoy theirs. The garlic bread was good, tho.

    Our last experience at Lucianos was excellent. This time our overall experience was mediocre. Last time the food was outstanding while this time is was just okay. I took my wife again for our valentine's date and we were very excited because our last experience was so good. My wife's prosecco was barely cold and my bourbon was a thimble full once the rock was removed. The calamari was rubbery, our entrées were not great while the red velvet cake was amazing. Service was very good and the atmosphere was great. We will be back but will be very careful of what we order.

    It was our first time there. The restaurant was beautiful and it has a good atmosphere. The bread that they bring is wonderful. It’s almost like a cheesy bread and they bring the sun-dried tomatoes in oil with it very good. We ordered this goat cheese appetizer ( can’t remember the name ) thought it was gonna be more like a bruschetta, but it was like a glob of goat cheese in spaghetti sauce , it was weird and spicy. And way too much bread with having the regular bread they bring… ( we did not know this at the time we ordered) We ordered the chop salad which was quite nice. And then we ordered lasagna. This is an Italian restaurant.. My husband loves lasagna .. they brought it in bowls. It was more like soupy lasagna over noodles .. was not like lasagna at all! . It was the worst lasagna I’ve ever Eaten in fact, we did not eat it. So the feeling that we got was we probably will not go back. It was expensive and if they can’t even get a basic dish like lasagna, right I would be scared to go and try other dishes there. Which is sad because it’s a beautiful restaurant.

    Delightful dinner- waitress was new to the restaurant but not new to taking care of customers. Specialty cocktails were a bit pricey- $18-$21 for what I had- a Pom-tini and a Lemon cello- food prices were reasonable. The manager was talking with various guests throughout the evening which we like to see- she was very pleasant. We had lasagna and the rigatoni with Italian sausage and tomato sauce which were both very flavorful! The bread served shortly after we got there was wonderful! We were going to a hockey game across the street at Gwinnett Arena and had 4:30 reservations. By 5:30, the restaurant was packed with all tables being full! We’ll definitely be back! Thanks Misty for your wonderful service throughout our dinner!

    As an Italian restaurant, I would have expected a larger variety of pasta dishes and specialty dishes. The waitress pushed the steaks heavily, telling us a couple of times it's the same meat used across the street. I ended up ordering a NY Strip and asked for it to be cooked medium. The steak ended up coming out medium well, and wasn't good. Next time, I'll stick to my convictions and order a pasta dish, but I really shouldn't have to do that if I'm paying a premium price for food and service, should I? Also ordered an appetizer that never came out. Not sure if that was the server or the kitchen dropping the ball, but it added to a sub-par experience. Again, as fancy as the place seems, and with as many wait staff running around, I shouldn't have these problems.

    The food, drinks, and experience were fabulous. Given that it was the day before Valentine’s Day the overall experience was fantastic. The only reason I didn’t give a full 5 stars is because the wait for drinks was exceedingly long.

    I have been here more than 10 times but tonight took almost 2 hours to get our entrees. We got 2 appetizers and the calamari was great but the mussels we not hot at all. When I got my lamp the sides were cold and my wife’s dish was hardly warm either. Probably will never go back and we took 2 friends as well and just was not a good experience.

    We have eaten here many times but last night was an “off” night. Our veal meatballs were very undercooked so we had to send them back. My son ordered his steak medium rare and it was raw. My husbands dish had very little shellfish and we paid $4 for a side of linguini and it was a very small amount of pasta. And my veal marsala had little taste. We also waited forever (25 minutes) for drinks and our food took at least 40 minutes. I know they’re busy but they’re always busy on a Saturday night and should be able to handle the crowd better.

    this place is a zoo. tables are crammed into the dining room. guests are packed in. noisy, low-end atmosphere. we had to wait even though we had reservations. food is mediocre at best. not enough servers for this circus like environment. had to ask multiple times for drinks to be refilled. forgot to bring bread. had to ask for check. just a horrible experience. couldn’t wait to get out of this place and will never return.

    The overall attention from the staff from door to table was nonexistent. We had reservations and still waited 30 minutes. When we were finally sat it took a while to even be acknowledge by our server. This kind of service has been our experience the last 3 times we have visited Luciano’s.

    Reflecting on the evening, the service was noticeably slow and disorganized, with the staff appearing young and inexperienced. It's unclear whether there has been a shift in management or staff, but the contrast to our last visit was stark. Luciano's, once a reliable choice for a pleasant dining experience, fell short this time around. Perhaps there's truth to the murmurs of servers and cooks migrating to Frankie's, another local establishment. Our experience at Luciano's was underwhelming, marked by prolonged waits and inconsistent food quality. While there were glimpses of culinary excellence, they were overshadowed by the overall disorganization and lackluster dishes. It's my hope that this was merely an off night for Luciano's, but with so many dining options available, future visits will be approached with caution.

    Food was great as always- they need to work on their wine selection- I wanted a glass of Chardonnay but they only had 2 wines by the glass to choose from and they were $19 and $22 - server did not even know the ounce of their pour (looked like 6oz) (they should educate their servers better on their wines- she knew nothing about neither wine) -- I ended up getting the Rose which was a more reasonable $14

    Very good food. Drinks are a bit overpriced but they were still good. Great atmosphere and don't let the location fool you. This is definitely a romantic, upscale restaurant, with great food presentation. I have the tortellini with blackened chicken and it was a lot more filling than it looked.

    My husband and I love going to Luciano’s for date night. Their bread and bruschetta are so good! We’ve tried various pasta dishes and flatbread pizzas and have come to have a few favorites. The staff is courteous and professional and we’ve never had a bad experience at Luciano’s. Highly recommend!
