We have visited this restaurant many times and have never left disappointed! The food is gorgeous and very reasonably priced (especially if you go for lunch or the early evening menu). The waiters are very friendly and efficient - they totally add to the lovely vibrant atmosphere. Perfect for any occasion - family friendly but also brilliant for couples!

Visited Lucianos on Friday afternoon. Staff were nice and friendly although slow but there was only one waiter on in a busy restaurant so he didn't do too bad. Food was very nice and priced pretty reasonable.

Came here for a leaving party straight after work, table was booked for 6. The portions were absolutely tiny, I found this with both my starter and main course, not impressed. The veg that came with my main of prawns tasted stale, as if it had been cooked at dinner time then left to stand. Glad we only paid happy... More

It was okay, nothing special and a little basic but for the price it was okay, friendly enough staff.
