Disappointed hostess attempted to seat us next to the restroom when we booked advising celebrating an anniversary. Quickly changed to the opposite side of room next to bar. Very quiet on this side, majority guests and a rather large party on opposite site. Service was simply outstanding and the food portions were large. The final bill noted I ordered veal marsala, when I ordered chicken. Made sense as to why the meat was grey and thin; only ate 1 filet. Waiter happily adjusted price and packaged the correct meal to take home. We were treated in a free tiramisu dessert. Everything is fresh and the flavors spot on. We are looking forward to returning.

We love Luciano's and haven't been able to go since the pandemic started so we were excited. But there are three things about the evening that really bothered me.

First, we had a reservation that stated I was disabled and might be in a wheelchair. I only needed my cane luckily and we were sat near the front which was nice. But then, I could barely get through the restaurant to the bathroom because the tables were pushed so close together since they were busy on Father's Day and Luciano's was clearly trying to seat as many as possible. Later I watched as a person in a wheelchair had to disrupt 2 tables to make people stand just so the wheelchair could get through. As a disabled person, there are not words for how embarrassing that is to have to interrupt people's meals. What's worse was to see Luciano's floor manager for the shift (I'm guessing..employee in a suit instead of server uniform) just standing there watching and not trying to assist.
Secondly, our server was a pleasant and knowledgeable woman but she either had too many tables or no help from the other staff because everything took much longer than it should. 10 minutes to even get greeted at the table. Another 16 minutes before our order was taken. We had glasses needing to be refilled that took 7 minutes to get noticed (I got her attention) and then 13 MINUTES to get refills!!! Yes, we were actually timing all these things, I'm not just estimating. All of that is just completely unacceptable in my opinion.
My last issue was the food itself. My carpaccio was delicious as always. My husband's tomato bisque was so thick it could be eaten with a fork and was very bland. He got the NY Strip and mashed potatoes for dinner. The potatoes were just a tiny white flavorless blob on his plate with a sprig of parsley sticking out of it. I got veal marsala with roasted potatoes but the potatoes were on the same plate and drowned in marsala sauce making them mushy and very unappetizing.

Nice place to eat - service is a tad slow. I think they are like a lot of places -- a little understaffed.

Had the sole special that was prepared table side. Food was great. The drinks were slightly over priced.

Nice atmosphere. Good food. People are dressed smartly without it being overly pretensions. Bottom line - I'll be back

We are loyal customers of Luciano's. Before last night, the last time we dined there was March 11, 2020 right before the pandemic shut everything down and it was excellent. Last night, we had out-of-town guests, and we are all vaccinated, so we decided what a treat it would be to dine-in at Luciano's. I am sorry to say, the quality of the food has gone quite a bit downhill. The bread was cold and greasy. The appetizers were good but the main course was poor. The chicken marsala was rubbery and fairly tasteless. The sautéed spinach was so salty, I could not eat it. Needless to say, I was very disappointed. Maybe we got the relief chef? Who knows? But for the price we paid, I do not feel we got fair value. Needless to say, we will not be going back for awhile!!

Our meals were excellent. I ordered, Carpaccio and Rib Eye Steak, my BIL, ordered the wedge salad and grilled chicken with basil and fettuccini. The Argentinian Wine was outstanding! Service was a little slow and lacking. We got our drinks and appetizers served but had no silverware or napkins. Took some time before we could get another server to get it for us. Overall a good experience, I'd definitely go back for the delicious food!

This was a dinner visit to Luciano's and we were not disappointed. We've eaten there many times and found the restaurant quite busy with patrons having dinner, which was nice to see. I had asked for a quite table and we were escorted on our arrival to a nice quiet corner table. My date ordered chicken piccata and I had the veal piccata, both with angel hair. The portions were very filling and the dishes were cooked nicely in a caper sauce which was delicious. Our salads were a Caesar for her and I enjoyed a nice wedge salad. The server, Ray, we learned was there on his second day and he did an excellent job explaining the menus and answering the questions we had. I ordered a nice bottle of Pinot Grigio, an Italian-origin brand which was quite nice. The wine steward also answered our questions about the wine list. Overall another wonderful experience and a very delicious meal.

I have been to Luciano's on several occasions and often visit their sister restaurant, Frankie's. Last night we visited Luciano's for my birthday and the experience was not that I have had in the past. I ordered the Steak and Lobster and I had to send the first lobster tail back. It was hard and did not have the texture of a fresh lobster tail. I was thinking it might have been over cooked so I had our waitress bring me another. By the time the second lobster tail came back, everyone was finished with their deserts and ready to leave so I boxed it up. A couple other things: a friend found a piece of onion in his desert and other friend who ordered the gnocchi said it was so oily that he actually got sick when he got home. When I got home, I was going to eat my lobster and when I cut it open, it smelled like ammonia and was black. I threw it away. I know being inland, we aren't going to get the freshest sea food. However, I have never had this experience at Frankie's so I went for it. I called to speak to a manager and got a voicemail. I was unable to leave feedback because the voicemail box was full. Unfortunately, I wont be visiting Luciano's again.

The lasagna sounded so good but was just ok. I loved the noodles but it needed something. I'm hoping it will be better today when I reheat it. Service was good but she kept taking things away as they were empty (my wine glass without asking if I wanted another and our bread plates when there was still bread in the basket). Lovely restaurant. I'll go back and try something different.

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and decided to try Luciano’s. We both enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant and looked forward to a lovely meal.

We were greeted warmly and our server, Roman, was attentive. We were served warm bread and a marinara dipping sauce that was delicious. I ordered the linguine carbonara and my husband ordered the rigatoni salsiccia. The carbonara was a bit gummy and the pancetta had pieces of the rind that were unappetizing. Overall taste was good. My husband said that he did not like the taste of the sausage in his dish, but enjoyed the other ingredients. Overall, I’d give this restaurant a 3.5 out of 5 stars and I will go back and try some other menu items.
