Have been here once before and now I'm writing a review. The inside is very simple with linen cloths on the table, after a while sitting I can't say that the chairs are comfy. We took three courses and they where all delicious. I started of with a plate of three different starters one better than the other. I then... More

We were looking for a nice restaurant for a lovely and romantic meal. Our Hilton hotel recommended it, but at around 6-6.30 pm there were no people at the restaurant. It was only a 150m from our hotel, but there was no atmosphere on that street, so we went towards the old town area. Walked around to find something, but... More

Super friendly staff, great explanation of all dishes on the menu. They really make you feel at home. One of the best Scallop starters I have ever had and the filet with pepper sauce is excellent. We had a table of six and everything came out quickly and at the same time. Also a very reasonable place to eat considering... More

Real good italian restaurant. Nothing fancy but real good food. Interior probably not changed the last 40 years, but that makes the atmosphere. I fully recommend this restaurant.

I had dinner here with friends and it had good atmosphere and really good staff who explained all the dishes and shared a joke or two with you, The food was excellent. However on this particular night the service between the starters and main course was 3 hours!! Way too long

We had been told how wonderful the food is and how difficult it is to get a table. Because of the high expectations we were disappointed. The tira misu wasn't even home made and the wine was served warm. The service was good and friendly

The food was fantastic but it was completely overshadowed by the service. The waiters really did not want to come to our table and rushed our service and my napkin was actually thrown across the table so they could put my plate down. Disgusting service.

Overall good was very good. They had a larger party with some famous (he was signing autographs) so service was not as good as I felt it should have been. I would definitely recommend Luciano.

I have eaten here for several times but here is the first review. Last night I ordered an Italian specialty with veal which also contained veal tongue and veal skull. As I think it was prepared very good with a rich taste it was not something like to eat. I think they noticed it and asked if I would like... More
