My wife and I have dinner here regularly, it's one of our favorite restaurants in town. We have visits Italy a few times and find the food here to be very close to what we've had in the southern part of the country. Joanne and Chuck are wonderful hosts, and dinner here always feels like visiting friends.

Visiting the area and this restaurant was suggested by a friend. Location was not what I expected, and then once inside, it was much more. Had a good server and people were very pleasant. Food is very good. Enjoyable evening.

We had reservations at 7:00pm on a Tuesday evening and were seated immediately. The service and attentiveness of our server was nothing short of fantastic. We ordered wine, appetizers cream of tomatoe bisque, & grilled shrimp, main course lagsana & veal medallions in a wine sauce, coffee and desert cream puffs & chocolate cake. The food was very good though... More

I had driven past this place over a hundred times before I actually dined there. This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend that was born and raised in Italy. A small restaurant in a tiny nondescript shopping plaza in a transitional city neighborhood, it's not much to look at from the outside. But once you enter you will... More

This place has gotten a lot of rave reviews, but our party of 4 found the place nothing special. Ambience was very good (we were seated in a small room) and the lighting was just right. I found the menu selections to be very limited, and the prices way out of line for the area. We could have had a... More

We moved to Rochester NY a few years ago and set about trying all the restaurants we could visit in the area. Our favorite is clearly Ristorante Lucano. Located in a nondescript mall, Ristorante Lucano looks like nothing special on the outside. But, once inside a feast of wonderful Italian food is at your fingertips. You will be greeted warmly...

We went for a special birthday dinner--and it was special! We sat in the Wine Room and although the tables were close together, we were not bothered by noise at all. The service was wonderful; the waiter chose a terrific wine for us and answered all our questions about the food. He was very helpful and willingly told us what... More

I can only guess that the high marks are from friends or family. My experience began with being seated in one of the loudest dining rooms I have ever been in. We mentioned this to the waiter who said, "Nah, it's like this all the time". I cannot recall this ever having been an issue anywhere in the past, but... More
