Sunderland may not be a top tourist resort, but many will find themselves there either because of its fine university, or Premier football side. I have no hesitation in recommending Lucianos in High Street West. Good quality Italian food, reasonable wine and beer selection, and friendly cheerful staff. Waiters sing snatches of the Classics as they move about, and if... More

Myself and my partner went out for a meal on Friday night to Lucianos . The room is nice but a wee bit dark for my taste entry is up a steep flight of stairs so not good for any one who has problems with mobility. The staff were efficient and professional and the food was hot tasty and plenty... More

My husband and I used to eat here frequently when we first met. Now as we live 200 miles away we don't get to visit very often but whenever we are in the area we make a special trip to visit. Food is very reasonably priced and delicious. It is a busy place so waiters don't have time to chat... More

What a find. We needed a restaurant pre 1D concert, and pre booked. Lucky we did, as they were fully booked from 4-7, so we went for a 1.30, and we were glad we chose Lucianos. A warm and friendly welcome, attentive staff, sharing jokes with the children. We pizzas and lasagne, classic authentic italian restaurant. Recommended!

Visted last night for the first time and it won't be the last. My husband and I enjoyed a 3 course meal with drinks, followed by coffee for under £45. The food was faultless, excellent quality, my steak was cooked to perfection and beautifully tender, the service was very efficient and the staff very polite. Everyone seemed to have a... More

Visited this evening with two friends good food, good service and good overall experience. Although the meal was not expensive i have had better italians which are cheaper. It was enjoyable but the food lacked anything specifically special.

A friend of my wife told her that there is only one place to eat in Sunderland and that is Ristorante Luciano. My wife and I did the 12mile Bedes Way walk for Chistian Aid. I decided to book whilst having lunch on Cleadon Hill Windmill and I am pleased I did. We went for happy hour which has its... More

Came up from the south for a family meal so first time visit to Luciano. After walking in and seeing the grubby decor on the stairs I was relieved to find that it was much better decorated upstairs. It was very busy as it was happy hour with cheaper meals. It was also very noisy so not suitable for a... More

Never a bad a meal from lucianos, waiters are fantastic and so friendly. Highly recommended. Does get very busy, but that's what you expect from a good restaurant.

Not impressed. Food was hot but took a million years to arrive. Very loud and busy. Staff seemed to have no time to give any attention. Had to stand and wait 25 mins after table booking time. Will never go back
