Quite some time since myself and my wife (both pensioners) have been here but not dissapointed in the slightest. The food was excelent, staff first class, and the ambiance really good. We had our lunch there on a Thursday and needed no more food or wine for the remainder of the day. A very pleasant lunch.

I have been to Luciano's hundreds of times I reckon over the last fifteen years. I can honestly say I've never had a bad meal. The stuffed peppers are lush and I'm a big fan of the vulcano pizza too.

We asked one of the security men inside the Bridges shopping centre for somewhere to eat before a show. He walked us over to Lucianos. Really surprising, totally hidden but we had a fabulous meal. The staff were excellent and the food great. Very relaxed and welcoming. We will definitely be coming back.
