Fantastic food, service, and ambiance.
Truly delicious food! I had the Black Squid Ink pasta with uni and crab. Be sure to ask for the “special” wine list - its truly special! Also our server who is also the bartender (stephen) was amazing!
Great place always .
Delicious and over priced small portions. Top notch service and beautiful restaurant.
Food was delicious and better than I expected from a restaurant in Tallahassee. Server came off a bit pretentious about some of the menu items, but I guess that's to be expected to some degree. Overall, would absolutely eat there again!
Very pleasant experience with excellent food. The waiter, Tyler, was amazing. His knowledge of the ingredients and the preparation of the food in the restaurant is outstanding. It was a pleasure talking to him, and his suggestions were superb. We highly recommend it.
It took forever to get our food. 1 hour 20 minute lunch. Food quality was very good as always.
Food was good, steak not cooked as requested and took way too long to come out. Party of 6 and waited over one hour for food to arrive at our table.
We loved our meal. The crab cake was fantastic. My steak was cooked perfectly !!!
The food was excellent, and Manager Ed Moran and wait staff provided top notch service.
Our server was very attentive. Definitely will be back.
Nice to have a new restaurant to choose from in Tallahassee. The service was outstanding. The food was very good. Its a bit pricey, not just for Tallahassee, but compared to similar level restaurants elsewhere.
The grilled octopus was perfection. The pasta stuffed with short rib was perfectly prepared. They make the pasta in house. It is so amazing. Wine list was very impressive.
Can’t wait to return!
The steaks were fatty and the prices were too extreme.
My second time I dined at Il Lusso. Everything was wonderful. The quality and service was outstanding,
Celebrated a good friends birthday. Staff went out of their to acknowledge her birthday and staff was extremely attentive.
The food was impeccable! The lump crab cake was amazing !! So juicy and tasty 😍 the lobster pasta was super flavorful & the half size is big enough for 2! The lamb was my favorite dish! I added truffle mash potatoes & it went perfectly! The libations list was amazing! I tried a few amazing wines and the waiter was super knowledgeable ! Definitely going again
Our experience was amazing! George is a phenomenal chef. He has made our experience at IL Lusso unforgettable. The service is always outstanding and their attention to detail is impeccable. We highly recommend dining at IL Lusso!
My girlfriend and I decided to try Il Lusso for the first time by recommendations from friends and it definitely didn’t disappoint. There are other restaurants in Tallahassee with top of the line steaks however none comes close to the variety and quality of this restaurant. Coming from my girlfriend, the standard is set even higher on what we consider a perfect dinner. We ended up enjoying the split bone rib eye and two pastas as our sides as suppose to getting traditional sides. Our server was Jennifer and she was on point with everything, knowledge and presentation. Lucas also came by to check up on us as he was very informative and helpful. Together both of them made our dinner experience perfect, one we will remember, and one we will tell all our friends looking for the best restaurant in Tallahassee.
This place really impressed us. The ambience is nicer than any other restaurant in Tallahassee. Tyler was a wonderful server with great recommendations. He suggested the tortellini, which was a work of art and so delicious. I could’ve eaten an entire meal of the truffle mashed potatoes alone. My only complaint is that the steak wasn’t worth its price tag. Otherwise we’re really looking forward to eating here again.
I have been several times and this last time might have been the best. The crab cake was amazing, as was everything else. Starters, pastas, steak, deserts, service, cocktails, manager, I don’t have enough great things to say. Top notch
Great service, excellent quality and appropriate portions, from appetizers through dessert. Always a great dining experience here. Learned that if you bring a bottle of something from your cellar that's on their list they won't open it. Understand the policy I guess, but a $25 corkage is an ample charge and it kinda feels like you're being held hostage to their list prices. Still, for me anyway I've got plenty of wine they don't have so only a minor inconvenience.
Excellent food and service. Unique dishes and great opportunities to share.
This is food lovers' food! I ordered the Squid Ink Mafaldine, which has blue crab, calamari, clams, mussels, and heirloom tomato. They say the sauce is butter-based, and I was concerned it would be heavy, but it was light and didn't overwhelm the al dente pasta. Sometimes blue crab can be bitter, but here it was sweet and fresh.
The wine (a Chianti, moderately priced at the tail end of happy hour) was delicious.
The chocolate tort was sweeter than I prefer, but all else was terrific.
Nice place. Loved the atmosphere. Much needed in Tallahassee. The food was good but not “write home to mom” good. Will definitely come back for the atmosphere alone. Will definitely try other food options next time.
Il Lusso was absolutely amazing!
I can’t wait to go back!
Ate here twice this week. It did not disappoint! Delicious pastas, salads and apps. Extraordinary wine list and a nice selections of bourbons and Ryes, with some hard to find like Weller and WhistlePig.
Every thing was delicious. Will be back again when in TLH.
Food was amazing the service was great as well. Shout out to Christian for being awesome and super friendly.
Food ok and service was mediocre.
Great all around
very disappointed in our experience. arrived early for our reservation and was told somewhat rudely to go wait at the bar. was 20 mins late being seated for an 0830 reservation. took 75 minutes to get our food once we ordered entrees. when it came it out it was not all that good. slightly above average at best is being complimentary. well below average for the price point. I expected much better. steak was not all that great and under cooked. but after waiting 75 minutes and it was after 10 pm I was hungry and didn't want to send it back. wine was overpriced for what it was. $20 for a glass of wine that goes for $20 dollar bottle at ABC; again I expect better. only positive was cocktail at the bar was good. will not go back. new to town and certainly there must be better dining experiences in town than this.
The food was absolutely amazing. So much flavor! The staff was extremely caring and really made you feel catered to.
Outstanding cuisine, courteous and very knowledgeable servers. It was a busy night and our server made us feel rushed.. Otherwise a perfect 10.
The food is fantastic! Always our go to spot while in Tallahassee. Service is excellent. Our server Natasha very good with suggestions on food and wine 😊.
Delicious food. Great choices. Wonderful cocktails and wine. Perfect service!
Our first time at IL Lusso and the restaurant came highly recommended. We loved it, beautiful décor, excellent staff and the food was exceptional. Will definitely go back next time we are Tallahassee.
6th anniversary! Great food. Awesome service. Expensive but worth it!
My boyfriend and I went out to Il Lusso for his birthday last night and it was amazing. We both left saying that it was probably our new favorite restaurant in town. The waitress we had was very knowledgeable on their whole wine listing and was able to help us pick out a wine bottle that we both loved. The food was amazing. The steak was so flavorful and the seared scallops were amazing along with the suplí and Gorgonzola insalata
Enjoyable location, great food and the staff was excellent.
