Thank you for the kind review. We're happy that your visit at Luciano's went well!
Fabulous all the way around
First time here coming over the bridge from Staten Island. I must say I enjoyed my meal, the braised short rib was amazing and my wife loved the linguini with shrimp shrimp clams.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a 5-star review! We hope to see you soon!
Excellent food and service
Excellent meal. Prompt and friendly service
We're glad that you enjoyed your experience here at Luciano's! Thank you for the review
Made a reservation for Mother’s Day and also my boyfriend’s birthday. I brought my boyfriend’s birthday cake earlier in the day to sing happy birthday after dinner. We were seated quickly but then things went downhill from there. We ordered appetizers (fried calamari and Cesar salad) which were great. We put our entree order in a couple of minutes after receiving our appetizers and we waited for what felt like an hour. We were disappointed because the restaurant wasn’t even full. I understand the rush in a restaurant but they needed to be prepared better. As soon as I called my waitress over and complained, our food miraculously was ready. After waiting for so long for our food, our pasta came undercooked and my boyfriend couldn’t eat it. I got fed up and didn’t even cut the cake. I took it home right after we finished entrees. I had high expectations for this place and was really disappointed.
Thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear that your experience was not up to standards. We will contact you to talk and investigate your feedback further.
My Mother’s Day overall experience was not great. I’ve always enjoyed Luciano’s in the past, but this experience was the worst for me. It will be a long while before I return.
I will say the Hostess was ok, but Skylar a Young Lady in Training salvaged what she could of my experience. Skylar was an absolute star on Sunday.
Nichole- we are very sorry to hear about this experience. We strive to provide excellent food, service, and hospitality but we missed that mark during your visit. We'd love the opportunity to reach out directly and make it right.
We are never disappointed when we eat here. The food was amazing, especially the Avacado stuffed with crab. The service was excellent. Our glasses were always full & never had to ask for anything. One of my favorite places for a meal.
We are thrilled that you had a wonderful experience! Thank you for sharing your review. We look forward to serving you again soon!
We never tried this restaurant and were up for something new. My review is based on the food. The Luciano salads were small with a lot of cheese. Another handful of greens would have been nice. I ordered the short rib which was half of a short rib (compared to other restaurants). Although the sauce was excellent there was only a few potatoes in the dish. My husband had the pork shank which was a good portion.
There are other local restaurants that provide more value so we won’t return.
We're grateful that you took the time to leave us a review. If you give us a chance, we are intent on making this right and hope you allow us to speak with you! Please call the restaurant directly at your earliest convenience.
Everything is always great here. The food is truly exceptional. The chef takes it to the next level which I like because the variety is fabulous. Of course the restaurant is beautiful and the service superb! It's now one of our staples.
The waitress and additional staff were very friendly and helpful.The food was excellent.They had a good selection of wine to choose from.
We always have a great time at Lucianos!!! Food is always delicious!!! Cocktails are great!!! Staff is amazing!!!
I’ve eaten at Luciano’s twice and both times the food, service, and ambiance was perfect.
Excellent food and service. Will def return.
Late Valentine’s Day dinner
An outstanding meal cooked to perfection! Thank you!
The food was delicious. Great atmosphere and music.
We had a very nice experience. Waitress was very sweet and accommodating. Nice atmosphere and food was excellent.
We will always be at this restaurant.
We enjoyed going for Valentine’s Day. Table cloths are important to me along with crumbing the table. An additional treat was the
rose as you were leaving the restaurant. The food was delicious I had swordfish with spinach. Due to Covid the service wasnt100% but that was ok. We look forward to returning
Everything was excellent
As always, Luciano's did not disappoint. A bit crowded pre-Valentine's day and the parking was difficult, but worth it.
Worst service! Our supposed server was not attentive to us. We had to grab a server to take our oders and grab another server to get the check. Not recommended.
Great food, great service. Consistently deliver a great dining experience.
Wonderful service, food portions were smaller than expected but absolutely delicious, a great experience overall
Fantastic food and fun cocktails! Always a favorite.
always a good place for dinner. good food really attentive service.
My wife and I had dinner at Luciano’s Restaurant on January, 29, 2021.
I had the Rib Eye Steak and my wife hade the scallops over risotto. Both entrees were of top quality in taste, quantity, service and presentation. The Italian seafood salad and the Luciano’s salad appetizers were of top quality as well. The waitresses were warm and friendly. In summary, our total dining experience at Luciano’s was all and more, what we expected.
Service. was terrible every course of our meal was wrong. Very young inexperienced girls looking very frazzled throughout the night. We had about 4 different waitresses and no-one really knew what the other was doing. It was a shame because food wasn't bad. But it’s upsetting when everything is wrong. You get upset and lose your appetite
We would like to apologize for your experience. As we are now experiencing more guests on the weekends, more staff will be joining our team in the upcoming weeks. Please contact Luciano's Ristorante at your earliest convenience so we may provide the utmost experience to you and our guests.
Been here several times .... always amazed with the delicious food and great drinks... very comfortable casual atmosphere.
Normally, a great place to dine. However, this night, the manager was the waiter and he took over 30 minutes to ask for our order. The dining experience took over 3 hours with only 45 minutes of eating; the rest was waiting.
2020 brought a different Christmas Eve for my husband and I so we decided to go out for dinner and it was amazing. Although the menu was limited for the holiday, it was delicious! Restaurant adhered to all CDC regulations while providing a pleasant experience.
Disappointed. My family all did not finish meals. Not cooked to the quality expected. Service was terrible. Waiter no where to be seen.
We would like to apologize for your experience. We are always trying to improve our service and staff. Please contact Luciano's Ristorante at your earliest convenience so we may provide the utmost experience to you and our guests.
