Dined at Lobrano's with 8 others. Our server was excellent. Answered all our questions and made some great suggestions. Awesome food, not a complaint in the lot of us. It is a BYOB with a liquor next store.

Went with friends, my first time. The selection of food was excellent, we shared appetizers that were the best. All of the main courses were served at the same time and we all enjoyed them. The owners came around to the tables asking if we were pleased with our meals. We gave them four stars. We will be going back... More

Great restaurant, meatballs are like our Aunt Betty's. If you are impatient, and can't wait for the good stuff, then please go to a fast food place.

First time I had dinner here and felt it was an average meal. The food was tasty but the service was lacking. Wasn't busy but the waitress only came by a few times while I sat with an empty glass. Prices seemed a little high. Would probably visit again but I would have to lower my expectations.

I live in the area and there is always a line for this place, so we decided to go on a Tuesday night. My husband and I both got specials (although I don't know why they were on the special's menu because I did see them on the regular menu as well...) Anyway, my Bucatini pasta was over cooked and...

Never could understand the lines for this place. It is in a local strip mall and I went on an off-season Friday night and waited for over half an hour. The food was average at best, in many instances over seasoned with garlic which is characteristic of poorly trained chefs who think they are cooking Italian. Prices were way over... More

We placed an order for two appetizers and waited over 30 minutes for them to be served(Broccoli rabe... More

We have been here several times and, all too frequently, apparently, the oil in the food does not agree with my wife, which is not good. She stays away from anything too oily here (might be cheap oil). Entrees were good - pasta with sausage and broccoli rabe; salads. Three people ordered a baked filet of sole. We had to... More

My husband and I tried this place on the suggestion of our friends that have been telling us about it for years. Boy were we mad we didn't listen to them sooner. The night started a bit on the wrong foot as we were given a 30 minute wait but were sat after just over 45 minutes. ( I guess... More

My husband and I just enjoyed... or tried to enjoy... a delicious dinner at Lubrano's. Although the meals were delicious, the noise coming from the kitchen was a major distraction. At times, we though a fight was going to break out because of all the yelling back and forth, primarily from the voice of one particular man who, after inquiring,... More
