We were there early in the summer so was not busy and had the chance to chat with the owners. They were wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed them. "Bread sticks" were freshly baked, yummy and huge! Portions were also huge - we all took home...More

There were four of us traveling together and we chose this place for dinner one night. Unfortunately the food is mediocre, bland, under-seasoned and relying heavily on cream sauces. In addition it seemed there was only one waiter on duty that night, so service was...More

Service was great! Food was ok. Prices a little high considering everything is ala carte. Dinner for two with a glass of wine each was $75. We shared a salad and each had our own entre.

Our entrees were good. However, the price for pasta with meat sauce was $22! There is nothing else to go with it at that price. A salad or a little bread was a very pricey extra cost. Too bad. We'd love to support you, Luciano's,...More

We are locals and decided to try this restaurant because there were vegetarian options for our visiting friends. While the food was okay, the service was horrible. Very unfriendly atmosphere. Don't know how they stay in business. Don't waste your money unless you like abuse...More
