We really enjoyed lunch at Luciano's! The portions are very large, in fact my friend and I split the lasagna and we still couldn't eat all of it. The bread was great, with a wonderful dipping mixture. Our waitress was outstanding! I will definitely go back!

Your front wait staff is crucial to your business, they are your first impression and imperative for the flow of the whole restaurant. For a night that wasn't very busy, we waited ungreeted for five minutes & the overall experience being seated had me ready to leave. We waited another ten minutes before anyone greeted us and bring any drinks. I watched others leave for similar reasons, I assume. Anyways, food is great and kitchen staff was delightful.

Luciano's never fails. Their menu is outstanding, providing a variety of selections with 5 stars on each one. It is one of my favorites in Gwinnett county.

We visited for our anniversary and had a lovely time! The food was delicious, the portions are huge, and we had a yummy tiramisu to finish off the meal! The servers do an amazing job, but also give space for quiet conversations.

I took my lovely wife there for her BDay. Great food and great service. There is no other restaurant in this neighborhood that can compare. They even had a musician playing the acoustic guitar at 7 pm. All in all, most importantly, my wife was happy about her bday dinner!

Always enjoy Lucciano's. Wait staff is normally good. The new managers at Lucciano's could use some more training. When they broke the cork for my wine bottle, the manager insisted on trying to fix it instead of getting me anther bottle of wine. Two managers spent too much time lurking around the floor.....they have no place to hide. The could use a bit more polishing. The lounge singer was good but TOO FRIGGIN LOUD. I came to talk over dinner not yell. Even though we sat away from music it was not escapable. .... Lounge singer should be background not compete with the food as the main attraction.

Lucianos is such a hidden gem in duluth. It's such an amazing restaurant with authentic Italian dishes and great daily specials. We want for dinner early Sunday and the crowd started picking up around 7-7:30. They had an amazing pasta special for the week where they would cook it table side and put it inside a large cheese wheel for more flavor. it was such a unique and authentic experience. they offer such a variety on their menu it was so hard to choose!

My husband, mother, and I went to celebrate a promotion and we’ve been here many times, but Steven made our experience all the better this time. He’s very attentive, professional, and very well mannered (this is often hard to come across nowadays.) Food and ambiance was great as usual. Service was excellent enough to want to share !

This was not our first visit to Luciano's, so any comments only apply to this visit. As usual, the food was very good. The only problem was how it was described in the menu & what you actually received at the table. First, either the chef failed geometry or doesn't understand what a "wedge" is. I like a wedge salad because of the firmness of the iceburg lettuce. What I got was a "nest", in a bowl, filled with a loosely packed half of a small head of lettuce. It had chopped tomatoes & such in it and drowned in blue cheese dressing. Not expected, but not what I really wanted. Second, the vegetable was listed as Baked Potato Puree. What I got was "smashed" potatoes. It was very lumpy & not at all like any puree I have eaten. I enjoyed it, but when you describe a dish, it should be accurate. This is not "Harry's Diner", but a fairly high-class restaurant, so calling a dish by a fancy name does not elevate the dish and may surely disappoint your patrons. Third, the 16 oz. Duroc pork chop was a bit dry & tough around the edges. It could have been butchered better and basted more to keep from drying out such a large chunk of meat.
The service was excellent & they did give us a choice of free dessert for our anniversary. I only comment on the things above to make sure the restaurant keeps its standards high and not fade into oblivion like so many restaurants in Atlanta area. Luciano's, all in all, is a fine place to eat.

I've been going to this location for years, most often for lunch. I've always enjoyed their food and I highly recommend the carbonara. The disappointing part of our latest evening out is the quality of the meat has gone down from what we've experienced in the past. I'm sure many wouldn't think to get the steak at a great Italian restaurant but if it's on the menu then I knew it would be as good as my other favorite dishes. So if you want to have a good meal (and often a great meal) stick with the traditional items.
