Locally owned is the way we go while at home in Reno. Luciano's is always one of our favorite pasta dinner houses. Spaghetti with huge meat balls is my husbands favorite, always and forever. I Love the Eggplant Parmesan. Their gnocchi with brown butter sage melts in your mouth. Salads always fresh and crisp. Try it, you will love this... More

We've been enjoying Luciano's fine food for fourteen years. Great atmosphere and friendly staff go to make a relaxing evening.

I had the clams linguini with white sauce and a Pinot Grio to go with it. The dinner came with either a soup or a Gorgonzola dressing salad. I had the salad and it was very tasty. My two friends had veal. One was Parmesan and one Scalopini. They said the were delicious. In fact I wondered if they had... More

I found this place to be full of charm with great waiters and very authentic Italian food. The specials are very unique and worth the selection. The bar is excellent with locals adding to the colorful charm. Reno has some nice restaurants and Luciano's is worth a visit.

This is our "go to" place when we are in Reno several times a year. The pastas are fabulous as is my favorite, Veal Picatta. They have always been accommodating when with friends with some dietary restrictions. Good wine selection as well. Also used to be husband's place for business lunches when residing in Reno.

Our cousin suggested having dinner here as we were not familar with restaurants in this area. Our dinner with drinks turned out well with one family member ending the meal with a tiramitsu and coffee. The bill came up to a couple of hundred dollars plus excluding tips! We found it real pricey for 4 diners. Their main course included... More

Stopped going there after 3 failures! Servers are clueless . . . last one got "Romano cheese" right, but couldn't get "Parmesan" cheese even close - it was laughable for a waitress in an Italian restaurant. There is a regular bar scene who inspects every diner as they walk in . . . not at all welcoming! Without those regulars... More

My wife and I were looking to have a nice meal after going to a movie. We decided on Luciano's because we had eaten here before and it was close to home. Both of us immediately noticed that the prices had gone up considerably. My salad tasted gritty, as if the lettuce hadn't been washed enough. Our dinners were OK... More
