Good food, friendly staff BUT no disabled access. There are 21 steps to the restaurant and several short sets of steps inside .Also ,no accessible loo that I could find. Worth the struggle but what about wheelchair users?

Seeing recent reviews on the day we were due to dine at Lucianos - I (being the party organizer) was concerned -BUT- food was good - service good - even though they were extremely busy.

The restaurant was busy and the waiting time was really well over what you could call acceptible. The food was really nice once it arrived. The bar area is packed will not be back... More
