Perfect and close to home place for a special occasion

First time eating here and will not be the last. Absolutely loved my charred octopus appetizer, fettuccine seafood fra diavolo main course, and bread pudding dessert. The bread was very fresh and olive oil to dip, superb. My dining companion ordered the short rib and although she liked the meat, she said the gnocchi was overdone, which I agreed. Regardless of the gnocchi, I cannot wait to return! Only challenge was the waiter was less than attentive. Once we had our food, we tried to get his attention numerous times and he would just look at us and continue on with what he was doing. Too many tables I suppose. Other than that, definitely will be back!

Outstanding food. Genuinely made to order, comfortable surroundings and atmosphere, lots of families eating together, multiple generations at one table. Try the handmade ravioli, chicken parm and franchaise excellent, overall a tremendous dining experience!

Service was horrible. I had a friend in town for the holidays wanted to take them to a non chain restaurant. It was a late lunch all servers were on a break. The waiter seemed annoyed that we came to dine. My soup took forever, and once the food came she never came back to check on us. My friend had to go find the Manager to ask for the bill. I was so embarrassed and his perception of NJ residents was that everyone’s rude. I would not dine here again.

We went here during the week to celebrate Valentines Day and after an hour the waiter came over and said would you like to see a dessert menu-we looked at each other and said we haven't had dinner yet. So we were hesitant to come back but I am glad we did because the food is outstanding.

I had only been here one time before and it was good so I went back with friends because we were seeing a play nearby and they loved it. We all loved the apps, dinners, and our waiter Andy.

Luciano’s is a popular eating place for groups and is a lovely environment. However, the food and service can be inconsistent. Our waiter had to come back to the table twice to ask what we had ordered because he forgot. Seems it might be more efficient if it was just written down. All that and he still brought the wrong dish to one of our guests. My meal, the scallops was very good but my husbands seafood fra Diavlo was not at all spicy. We have eaten here several times, and sometimes are better and sometimes worse.

We were promptly seated for our 5:15 reservation. After salads eaten , we waited 45 minutes for entrees.

Attended for a business lunch. We sat in the lounge area by the window. Great service and well prepared food!

Super slow service. One meal was completely wrong but we didn’t send it back for fear of how long it would take.

This was our second visit to Luciano's after having it on my list of places to eat for a long time. Why did I wait?!? Delicious meal, enjoyed by all 8 people in our party . Even though the restaurant was busy, on a holiday weekend, the staff did not hurry us along and allowed lots of time for visiting with friends. Lots of nice choices on the menu.

This restaurant never disappoints. The prices are reasonable for the quality of food you are receiving. I feel lucky to have this place nearby.

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.

Luciano's is one of my most favorite restaurants. I go their often. The wait staff treats you like family and the food is delicious. The cocktails are out of this world and a very nice Sangria as well.

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.

This is a good, solid dinner venue. We had a great waitress. I love the larger than usual tables, not too close together.
