Great service, top food!

I came here with friends before the theatre...the service was good and the food ok! Not the best Italian I have been to but totally recommend it for a nice meal.

Had a great meal here. It was a busy Friday night but we were served quickly and our food arrived in no time. Generous portion sizes and reasonably priced.

Had a fantastic meal. We didn't book a table and they happily seated us on a busy Saturday night. Enjoyed a lovely meal with wine and were able to sit for as long as we wanted. I couldn't recommend this restaurant enough and couldn't believe how cheap the bill was. Would definitely be back if I'm fortunate to return to... More

We visit Luciano's around once a month, having gone for years before. Myself and some family went last week for a pre theatre dinner and were greeted very warmly by the staff. The restaurant was really busy as it normally is and being nearly 8 months pregnant I was worried I might get a bit squashed but our waiter moved... More

Been a few times now. The only thing I would change is the size of the premises as it can get very very busy. Definitely a popular place.

Food was adequate but portions were alarmingly small. My 11 year old had an adult portion I dread to think of the volume of a childrens half portion. On the plus the waiters were nice and the the restaurant had a pleasant atmosphere

I visited Luciano’s to meet some friends while travelling in the North East, when I arrived my first thoughts were “this place needs a little refurbishment” but it soon grew on me and has a lot of history and character. It is a large restaurant with a separate bar area and tables a plenty, the menu if extensive, we had... More
