We've been to Luciano's three times. Once the food was very good. Once it was average and one time we felt it wasn't worth the high price. I guess that describes inconsistancy. I will say that the time it was very good was the most recent time so we would go back and try again when the opportunity presents itself.... More

The neighborhood was not inviting---main street in Rahway which looked like a war zone, but Luciano's Restaurant belied its environment. Warm atmosphere, almost-Manhattan décor at the bar, the private dining room, the main room, friendly, attentive service, soft conversations heightened by family, and superb food--a seafood pasta dish with a uniquely piquant sauce so inviting I paused from licking the...

I went here for a baby shower, the food was good, the place was nice, cant say how the drinks were since i didnt have any. Location is convenient in Rahway. From what i saw online the prices loor reasonable for the quality youre getting.

At the end of the loooong day, not knowing the area, I was sent here by myself while staying in town. Ordered two small plates ($5) and they were delicious. Good wine list and live music.

We were a party of seven and had excellent service. The crab and shrimp over avocado as an appetizer is excellent. I get it without the remoulade sauce, which also is excellent (I just don't need the extra calories). I had the salmon for dinner, also excellent. My husband had chicken parm and said it was very good. My brother-in-law... More

Enjoyed my business dinner at Luciano's! Only concern was trying to find parking in front of the restaurant. Only a couple of parking spots there, but a decent size lot across the street. The food was very good and the service was excellent! Great place to go to if you're looking for a nice quieter place to talk while enjoying... More

Went to Luciano's for a birthday party. We had about 50 people attend. The place was nice and inviting and the food was pretty good not amazing, nice presentation though. The wait staff was ok, not great. Parking is a problem. They have a very small lot. There is also street parking. The town offers a parking deck but it's... More

The restaurant has a nice ambience and I felt like I was in a scene from the Godfather when eating dinner at the bar. It was great! Handmade, craft cocktails, great food, with huge portions.

Straight to the point about food: we orders calamari as a starter + a platter of cheese and ham - both were very good. For food, I ordered the ´special of the day´ - sword fifh and risoto. The food was good, well prepared and presented. It lacked something like a good lemon on it or some spice... the white... More
