Luciano's Ristorante & Lounge/Rahway, NJ Ratings and Reviews
Always a good time a Luciano’s. We were in the front room which also had a large party celebrating a big anniversary. One waiter. He was great but think they could have used a second waiter because that poor guy was running all night long.
Definitely amazing food, as always. Will be back again.
Celebrated our anniversary on Saturday 10/07/17. Disappointed with meal. I said something to the waiter and he said thanks for letting him know. The pasta dinner with half lobster had no lobster meat in the claw and minimal in the tail. Nothing was done to correct issue. I will have to re-think going back.
everything great!! only negative was we mentioned it was our anniversary and our server never checked to see about complimentary desert. said we needed to bring copy of email stating it was an offer to us specifically for that occasion. a bit disappointing since she otherwise was very sweet.
I will never come back again. The place was not busy, a handleful of staff just walking around, yet we waited forever to place our order, get our drinks and the food. After all of the waiting, food was below mediocre. Won't be coming back. Giant disappointment
This was my first visit to Luciano's Restaurant. My date had been there before and highly recommended it. The restaurant was welcoming from the hostess,Suzanne to the very experienced waitress who served us. We were not rushed, but also not left sitting around waiting for the next course. I ordered the stuffed artichoke for an appetizer-it was awesome but difficult to eat politely on a date- took it home and devoured it!! The sea scallops were prepared perfectly -caramelized/seared and not over cooked! We were too full for dessert, but I 'm guessing they were great too. Even though it's a bit of a drive to get to Luciano's it was worth it ;)
W have been to Luicanos many times and always enjoy ourselves. The food is delicious and the service great, just enough timing between courses so that you are not rushed but not starving for your next course. Wait staff is very attentive and helpful. We will be back soon.
Very disappointing. The burratta was extremely runny to the point we couldn't eat it-I knew right then dinner was going to be mess. The food in general did not have a lot of flavor. The Seabass was lightly floured with no seasoning then randomly they serve the sauce on the side in a ramekin? The dining room was empty yet when they seated us, put us directly next to the only table there who were very loud. I thought that was strange and maybe a joke. No big deal. I was hungry. The issue here is the food. I can't get past the food. For the price I was paying and the abundance of Italian restaurants around it needed to be waaaay better. I will never be back. Even when I was trying to order my appetizer the waitress wouldn't let me finish and kept walking away. She didn't even ask my husband what he wanted. I had to say hey excuse me we aren't done ordering TWICE-she wasn't apologetic about it either. Very rushed for only 2 tables in the entire restaurant. The broccoli rabe is better from Tonys Pizza. The lamb lollipops were tasty but were pricy for only 3. Other spots have them for less, more on the plate taste the same or better. Nothing special about this place. I will stick with Casa Guiseppe for fine Italian dining next time.
Quickly turning into our favorite place for our Friday night date night. The live music is fantastic and the staff couldn't be friendlier. The wine list is great and the food is fantastic. The scallops and salmon are our favorites. A nice friendly crowd and we seem to run into someone we know each time we go. Highly recommend.
As always, the food, service, and ambience were excellent. Our server was very friendly and made great menu recommendations. We always go to Luciano's for special occasions. It is great to have this restaurant so close to home. The owner Joe always comes by the table to say hello and ask how eveything is, he knows us well. Looking forward to going back again.
We were looking for a place to meet friends that was a good mid-distance from both of our homes. Luciano's fit the bill geographically in Rahway, but we didn't expect it to be such a find.
First the bar was the FRIENDLIEST I've ever been in. The bartender had someone grab two stools from the opposite side so we could sit- then the couple next to us insisted on moving everyone a bit so we had more space. This never happens to us. People were just friendly which is a welcome change:)
The food and service once seated was amazing.
We will be back!!!
Convenient location, adequate parking, very pleasant and courteous staff. Food was good but not outstanding. I tried the risotto, which came with only two grilled shrimp and two scallops. The shrimp and scallops were very good, but the rest was bland and tasteless. Even a sprinkling of salt couldn't bring this risotto to life. That dish was disappointing - and it was a "special" for Saturday evening. Three others in our party had the chicken and capellini from the main menu, chosen mainly because it was an unusual combination. Once again, the verdict was "okay" but they were unanimous in stating that they would not order again. The winner for the night was a veal dish, not sure which version, probably the scallopini, which the patron raved about. So, all in all, maybe three and one half stars overall would be fair. Would I try this restaurant again? Probably, if I was in the neighborhood. I'm an optimist, so they get another chance. :)
We visited here for our 16th wedding anniversary. We are not from the area, we stayed near by and look for nice places to dine and came across your restaurant. We were taken away by the ambiance and we're glad we dressed for the occasion. Blown away by our first visit and hope it's not our last. We will travel the 45 minutes it takes from our home to make that happen.
