Food quality has almost disappeared over the last 2 years.
Service and ambience still good.

The greeting of the hostess and valet parking was very warming, as well as their goodbye. The food was great but if you are with your significant other its best to sit inside to the right, its very nestled and quiet enough to speak to each other. By Bahamas standards, the prices are fair.

This is meant to be one of the top restaurants in Nassau, I have to say we were extremely disappointed with the level and quality of food. I am in hospitality businesses myself i run cafeterias in Hospital locations across Australia and I truly believe that the food we produce has more flavor, freshness, quality and passion than Luciano's.
I would say that the level of service was great from the moment we walked in and until we went home.
Well done and Thank you for the great service.
Good luck and I wish you all the best.

Have been to Lucianos a number of times over the last 10 years. The food has become mediocre at best. Small portions not even served hot. Overpriced for what it has become. Disappointing, after all we are return customers but not again

We had dined at many of Nassau's finer restaurants including Graycliff. Outstanding service and meals at Luciano's far better than any on the island. The freshness and service were outstanding. Pricing was a bit up but certainly not as high as Graycliff with far superior food and service. We had the most wonderful experience at fine dining, better than little Italy in NYC. Our recommendations are superior. Kudos to the restaurant and their staff.

Last visited this establishment 8-9 years ago when I lived in Nassau, it was excellent. Beautiful courtyard, restaurant & bar etc., now the courtyard stores a dirty marque. Since last visited it has declined considerably. The building itself was shabby, dirty, unkempt. The food was very poor quality, poor presentation, tasteless & served warm, not hot. The service was terrible, took 3 hrs for a table of ten. Not sure if this is the same owners, but they need a wake up call.

Food was marginal and there was a rat scurrying around on the floor a few tables from us when we got up to leave. Menu is good but food needs to improve and improve the pest control!!!

Our server was fantastic! We found out when we were leaving that she is new, and we were stunned. Lakeisha made the evening terrific!
The steak with the crusted Parmesan, hollandaise sauce, & grilled shrimp - everyone should get this entree (very very good)!

Super experience. From the doorman who greats you to Gerard the bartender and Nikeal our server. The food was excellent. We were very pleased with the overall experience. We went for our 26th wedding anniversary and everyone made our experience special. The blue-cheese stuffed meatballs and deviled eggs were awesome appetizers, large but not too large and full of flavor. The steaks and sides were cooked to our liking with great sauces and taste. I would recommend this hidden gem to anyone visiting Nassau who wants a great meal. Gerard, the bartender went out of his way to make my wife a special drink, exactly as she wanted. Kuddos and thanks to him for that level of personal attention and customer service.

The food was absolutely delicious. They were able to accommodate certain dietary restrictions. I asked to have them make me an appetizer portion of pasta and it was fantastic. I had the grouper and my husband had snapper, both we’re outstanding. The service was excellent as well.

Really bad service. Average food. They were supposed to make our night special because I went by during the day and hand picked the table and requested a dessert with a candle as a surprise for my husband birthday. Did not happened.
Would not recommend this restaurant

Food quality was very good. Outside dining area very comfortable.
Service was lacking: wrong bottle of wine delivered, water service slow, waiter never returned for additional drink orders. Offered additional bread..was never delivered. Desserts were very good. Charged for additional dessert which they removed from bill at our request. Staff was friendly just not attentive.

Luciano’s is a worthy competitor to Cafe Matisse which long been our favorite Nassau restaurant. It can hold its own with good restaurants in NYC and LA.

We were staying at Atlantis, and we try to visit at least one off property restaurant.

Luciano's was great. The weather was mild, so we ate outside overlooking the marina.

The waitstaff was very attentive, but not always bothering you. The food was exactly as described and perfectly prepared.

Luciano's is a very nice location with old school service, something that is getting harder to find.

We have frequented this restaurant for years. We will not return. The “don’t give a “” attitude and the quality of the food have deteriorated to an extremely low level. This was one of the restaurants that never failed to deliver. Two hour wait at the table for sub par food. Never a status offered up as to the reason behind the delay. Ordered bottles of wine and the wrong bottles brought out without knowledge until brought to the servers attention. Top end steak prices with low end steak quality. After discussing our concerns and issues with the server one would expect a manager to address the concerns however not even a visit to discuss. Embarrassing overall performance. We shall never return to this establishment and I’m sure no one cares enough to correct the failures that currently exist. Please consider fine dining elsewhere on the Island.

During our meal a RAT ran around the outside area. It was scary and horrifying. From head to tail it was approximately 12 inches.
The waiters and staff saw it as well. It ran right by our table and across the floor in front of the open doors to the outside table area.
People around us sat comfortably but we could not enjoy dinner and got the check soon after we tried to eat and left.

Went for our 27th anniversary. Enjoyed the experience, of course as with everything in the Bahamas, it was somewhat expensive.
