My wife and I have been to LoRusso's Cucina once before this year. The service was great, and the food excellent. The prices are reasonable and everything was near perfect.
Some may see the atmosphere of the restaurant as dark, with old fashioned decor. While that is true, the spacious seating and sound absorbing drapes make for a lovely special dinner in honor of my wife's special birthday.
The wait staff was humping, the restaurant had a full house, and everyone seemed to come at the same time. The key is that LoRusso's staff pitches in and helps each other make the dining experience pleasurable for their guests.
I saw the Maitre' D taking drink orders, and while seating guests, grabbed unobtrusively the straw which I placed on the table. I saw waitresses helping each other and the kitchen staff bringing the second tray of dinner plates when the waitress was serving another party.
All of these little things say to me this is a restaurant that teaches superb service to everyone who interacts with it's patrons. Bravo, you guys are great.
As much as I continue to rave on about the service, the Maitre' D stopped at our table as the waitress brought out the complimentary desert for my wife's birthday. She took our picture and before we left, gave us a copy of the print and told us that it would be on their website if we allowed them to post it.
I check out every restaurants menu when they have a website. Whoever designed LoRusso's did on professional job. The reservation process is super easy to use, and modify if you have made a mistake (I made the reservation for the wrong night). I was sent a confirmation, and that told me I goofed. Fixing the reservation was a snap, and I even got a reminder this morning that we had our reservation for this evening. Nice touch!
Oh and the food is great. We were going to order the fried spinach as an appetizer, but it came with a special seafood pasta which was to die for.
Is this one of our favorites? You bet it is. Will we be back? You bet we will!
