Overall good was very good. They had a larger party with some famous (he was signing autographs) so service was not as good as I felt it should have been. I would definitely recommend Luciano.

I have eaten here for several times but here is the first review. Last night I ordered an Italian specialty with veal which also contained veal tongue and veal skull. As I think it was prepared very good with a rich taste it was not something like to eat. I think they noticed it and asked if I would like... More

Dined at Luciano's twice in my stay in Cologne. I had to come back! Great personalized service, and an excellent selection of Italian dishes, wine and beer.

We tried this restaurant based on a recommendation from our hotel and were presently surprised. The staff were very warm and welcoming and joked with us through out the meal. They translated the menu into English and made recommendations. We had scallops, pasta and meat dishes which were all excellent. The tiramisu was also excellent for dessert! If you are... More

So my family of four was in Cologne for the Weinachtenmarket and staying at the Marriott. We had no dinner reservations and arrived at 6 pm on Friday evening-so we expected we were not going to do well on a restaurant. But the hotel reception attendant (great asset for the Marriott team) called over to Luciano II and wangled us... More

If you want to feel like you are eating with with a lovely Italian family, eat here! Amazing food, friendly and wonderful service. Menu is on a chalk board so it changes every day. The chef was happy to offer things not on the menu. Cozy and perfect!

Had a really good meal here. The truffle pasta dish was exquisite. I'd come here again and would recommend this place without reservation.

Luciano's was one of several recommendations from the nearby Hilton staff. Good choice! The food is authentic, tasty, and appealing. Staff are somewhat brusque, but come around with a little encouragement. Luciano's is typically quite busy till the late evening.

Totally overpriced Italian with food quality below average, a tourist trap in Cologne! Also no atmosphere at all as all completely outdated. There is no Menu to choose from, the waiter comes to you with a badly written peace of wood, which is hardly readable from your sit and gives you about 30seconds to decide. After he made you decide... More

1 minute walk from the Hilton Hotel Cologne you can find this Italian restaurant (actually, there are 2 Italian restaurants next to each other, this can be a little confusing). From the outside the appeal is not so nice, also the interior is really not very nice. However, as I said do not judge a book by its cover, the... More
