Excellent Nighborhood Restraunt

We have had dinner at Luciano's a number of times. In two words, I would say it is consistently very good. Their pasta is always excellent and I have enjoyed their veal. A small dinner salad or soup is included with dinner. When one considers the quality of their pasta and price, they rank near... read more

This was a definite restaurant I will be returning to. The Food was fresh and Tasted Wonderful. The service was impeccable. Compared to the chain restaurants it is pricy but well worth the money, all of the portions are more than reasonable. I look forward to my next visit.

I have to agree that they restaurant is understaffed. We waited about 20 minutes to have our order taken but once that happened the food came out quickly. Others weren't so lucky. A family of regulars with small kids waited far too long and they weren't happy and they took it out on the waitress. This is a management issue.... More

Every year when we travel to Reno for Hot August Nights, we make it a point to eat at Luciano's. This year was no exception, but the service was not what it used to be. It seemed normal at first, but then I noticed there was only one server, although the manager? seemed to be helping out. There was also... More

As soon as you arrive you can tell the place has a lot of regulars. Long time family restaurant. Home cooked food. Service was a little slow but the place was packed. Salad was nothing but plain lettuce and an outstanding gorgonzola dressing.No croutons or anything. Dinners come with a side of delicious polenta. Very big portions. Coffee was very... More

Love going to Luciano's ... whether to stop in for just a drink, solo dinner or a dinner spread with friends. I have been pretty much a regular for awhile and always feel welcome like family. Have always had a great meal. My personal favorite right now is their Marsala, chicken or veal. Quiet place, tucked away just off the... More

This is one of those places where you are a friend the minute you walk it. It is a family run establishment and Luciano is an Import from Italy--The best alfredo sauce. The Ravioli are hand made by them and the are great.

Off the beaten path...and in a strip mall, surprisingly. But the dinner we recently had at Luciano's in Reno was fantastic and worth the drive off of the main drag. We were attending a concert at Silver Legacy for my birthday and wanted a good Italian meal - Luciano's did not disappoint. The olive oil with fresh garlic/basil & peppers... More

Upon arriving we sat at the bar for a cocktail we were greeted by a nice lady. We order the drinks(way overpriced for the quality of wine that was served) we sat for dinner and I ordered chicken saltambucca. What I received was a flattened out undercooked piece of chicken(not even sure it was a breast) with a foul tasting... More

Luciano's is the best Italian Restaurant in Reno by far. We have eaten at this restaurant many many time, and have never been disappointed. Thank you Luciano for this wonderful place to eat!
