From the antipasti appetizer to the balsamic calamari to fantastic pizza to Sunday Macaroni and Sauce, it was all very good. Starve yourself before you come - the portions are more than ample. I brought home more of my entree than I ate.

Met my friend here for dinner the other night. I haven't been here in ages and I really don't know why this isn't on our usual list. It was a Thursday night and the place was filling up fast. We were seated promptly. Good vibe, loud, BYOB and very family and group friendly. Our server was great and all the... More

I have been there a few times now. The restaurant is in a shopping plaza, but the atmosphere inside is very nice. It is a BYOB. Liquor store is right next door. The waiter staff is always pleasant and attentive. The food was really good. I sampled a few of the other dishes at the table too. The salmon was... More

This place used to be great. Over the past two years it seems like they slowly let things get worse and worse. The glasses and silverware are always dirty or spotty. The fresh bread which I once loved now tastes like it's made in huge batches, frozen and then reheated as needed. Not at all as soft, fresh and tasty... More

Some of the best Italian around! Try to make reservations because the word is out! The food is simply fantastic! The mussels are the only ones I will eat, they are simply delicious and always out of this world. The eggplant is also highly recommended, as is their bolognese.

Pizza is good, not great. Eggplant Rolatini is exceptional. Place is packed 7 out of 7 nights that's why we take out more often than eating there.

I have been to Lubranos in the past but tonight's meal I was very disappointed in. I ordered Veal Parm dinner and was taken back by the two small pieces of veal that I was served. For the price and the serving I ave to say I was not happy. Also I was with 3 others. And we were celebrating... More

Recently had the pleasure of dining at Lubrano's Trattoria. As always, the entire dining experience was outstanding. This BYOB restaurant has a terrific atmosphere for small groups, large groups, and couples. The service provided by the wait staff was excellent as usual. Our dinner consisted of a balsamic shrimp and calamari appetizer together with warm bread with olive oil. The... More

We live locally and there is no shortage of good Italian restaurants, but this has become our Friday night favorite . BYOB which helps and there is a wine store adjacent. Atmospheric ambience and wonderful food.
