Picked this at random as close to theatre - little difficult to find and could have done without the stairs but once in staff were lovely, efficient and fast. Food great and atmosphers/decor just right - next time will leave us more time pre-theatre but would definitely recommend this place

Having lived in Sunderland all my life I've grown up eating at Lucianos. I can honestly say I have never been disappointed in this restaurant. The food is varied, fresh and well prepared. The service is outstanding - how so few waiters tend to so many tables is beyond me! Enjoying fish I frequently order Gamberoni Picante as a starter.... More

We have visited this restaurant many times and have never left disappointed! The food is gorgeous and very reasonably priced (especially if you go for lunch or the early evening menu). The waiters are very friendly and efficient - they totally add to the lovely vibrant atmosphere. Perfect for any occasion - family friendly but also brilliant for couples!

Visited Lucianos on Friday afternoon. Staff were nice and friendly although slow but there was only one waiter on in a busy restaurant so he didn't do too bad. Food was very nice and priced pretty reasonable.

The typical charismatic Italian restaurant with a well planned out waiting and seating area offers fabulous meals and drinks for very reasonable prices with a more than happy atmosphere, when it is ones birthday the restaurant offer a free sing and dance for the birthday boy/girl where a sombrero is placed on their head in a small embarrassing but funny...
