Hidden gem

One of Sunderlands hidden restaurants, i walked past it so many times without realising it was there. Located above a skeptical looking bar, Lucianos offers a great Italian menu. Portions are of a good size, reasonable price and good atmosphere. Staff are always friendly and outgoing.

Came here for a leaving party straight after work, table was booked for 6. The portions were absolutely tiny, I found this with both my starter and main course, not impressed. The veg that came with my main of prawns tasted stale, as if it had been cooked at dinner time then left to stand. Glad we only paid happy... More

It was okay, nothing special and a little basic but for the price it was okay, friendly enough staff.

We had a three course meal. My starter consisted of three prawns and a bit sauce, my main was a chicken dish which was nice, if not very filling. My sweet was none existent, as after waiting 40 minutes after everyone else was served theirs, I cancelled it. I didn't get an apology, just an excuse as to why it... More

I go to this restaurant quite often and never tire of it. The waiting staff are excellent. they are all very friendly and obliging, especially Danny. The food is delicious and the menu extensive. Although my favourite dishes are the salmon and the sea bass I have tried others and have not been disappointed.

The pasta dishes are usually very good and the chicken/mixed bbq dishes are excellent also. The staff are also fantastic to us. Definatly... More

Had a lovely meal here recently with friends before visiting the empire. We hadn't booked a table, but that wasn't a problem we were seated and seen to promptly. The food was beautiful and service great, our waiter was very funny and charming. Will be returning :-)

Me and my girlfriend went for a romantic meal for 2, the booking went smoothly and we were seated within minutes. We went during the week but had been before on a weekend when it was extrememly loud so it was a welcome relief when it was quite quiet. We ordered potato skins for starters which were well done but... More
