Good pizza!

Pizza was good and service was excellent! Decor needs a little updating but it definitely has that hometown family owned feel.

We ordered spaghetti marinara and pepperoni pizza - pretty basic. The spaghetti container was a tub similar to one you would think soup to-go would be given in. The spaghetti was mush and bland. I ate two bites and threw the rest away. My kids and husband wouldn't eat the pizza either. Ended up having to get Mcdonalds. Waste of... More

Great meal here: the lasagna was not your 'usual', very generous serving and delicious...the tri-color linguini with scallops and shrimp was also outstanding. Expansive wine selection; abundant seating; very good service [ask for Robert]. Reasonable prices. If you like Italian, you'll love Luciano's.

The atmosphere at Lucianos was relaxed and comfortable. The service was very good, our server, Robert, made suggestions and was attentive and efficient. Our coffee cups were never empty. Portion sizes were good; a good value. Garlic bread was crisp on the bottom, a little hard to eat. The house dressing, creamy garlic was exceptional.

As a local we try to keep business local and support our community, we have tried Lucianos on a few occasions but won't be going back. Food is always sub-par, and we have some sort of issue each time we visit. It is a great idea to have an authentic italian restaurant in town but they need some work, starting... More

My husband was stationed in Sardinia, Italy for just over 3 years. He says, "Luciano's is the closest I've come to authentic Italian food here in America." We loved it so much that we actually were married at Luciano's. Our favorites include the calamari, caprese, beef tenderloin, Sicilian pizza, lasagna, linguine pesto with shrimp......to name a few. Leo makes his... More

We've been here once or twice and it has decent Italian food, although we thought the prices were a bit high. They expanded a few years ago which is nice because you can usually get seated without waiting too long. Very nice location right downtown.

We visited during off season so there were very few patrons. Still the food was excellent. They make their own pasta and sauces. The pesto was perfect and the Alfredo was so rich. Service was great and they had a good selection of wine.

If you want a good casual Italian meal at a reasonable price, this is a safe bet. If you want a romantic ambiance - this is not. Not that is a bad place to eat or there is anything wrong with the restaurant -- it's just a little plain. It's simply good hearty food and worth checking out.

Although the sauce is tasty, the pasta always seems over cooked. The portions are generous though. Friendly service.
