Rahway gem

I took my wife here for her birthday on a Wednesday night. It was surprisingly a larger place than expected, not that it's a complaint. It is a very clean place with nice decor and it represents an Italian feel. In general, the staff is very warm, friendly, and inviting. The food was delicious. The... read more

Beautiful spacious room with a fireplace. Nicely decorated for the holidays. The staff was wonderful, George and Angela where amazing. Wonderful people who took... More

Food is always consistently good. This place makes the absolute best pumpkin ravioli !!!! Sweet potato casserole was superb! Don't get me wrong the turkey at the carving station was good, but the pumpkin and the sweet potatoes were the best you will ever taste. Sundried tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and pesto appetizer was top notch as well. We had a... More

The atmosphere was very nice. The fireplace area is very cozy when out. I thought the food was ok, nothing to write home about. Salads are excellent...but entrees are lacking flavor and creativity. I would rather go to loucas or il Castello in Woodbridge.

The staff was extremely accommodating and patient with our large 4 generation group. I can't think of anything I would say needs improvement. Luciano's will be at the top of our list for special occasions for a long time.

We have been here twice and will definitely return. The restaurant is only 8 years old but has an "old school" feel. Nice bare with tables plus other dining rooms. the staff is terrific, drinks are very good and the food is excellent Italian fare. The meatball appetizer was excellent as was the rigatoni with sausage and peppers. This will... More

My family celebrated Mother's Day at Luciano's. It was wonderful; the food was excellent, the service outstanding, and the celebration was noteworthy. I would say it's not a place to take children for dinner; the price is steeper than some restaurants and it is quiet dining; definitely more for the adults .
