We went to Luciano's on the recommendation of friends as a good place for a pre-show dinner near the Union County Performing Arts Center. What a great choice. Terrific atmosphere and innovative menu. My wife and I split an order of the pesto ravioli as an appetizer along with a salad. We each ordered the espresso honey scented salmon served... More

We took the family here for a birthday celebration because its location was a good meeting point. Unfortunately, the main room is more like an open warehouse. They placed our family of five (with a reservation) in an open thoroughfare. The bar room looked cozy, but no room there. The room was really noisy (because of the wooden screens to... More

Set in a large attractive building with several dining rooms and a large bar area with a fireplace. The food we sampled was excellent and included an avacado stuffed with crabmeat, wonderful split pea soup, superb scallops, and the best short ribs I've ever had. Deserts which seemed to be made on premise were equally terrific and included cheesecake &... More

Very nice place. The Atmosphere is nice fireplace, etc. Nice for an anniversary or special occasion. Pretty $$$$$ for my taste. Plan on dropping $150 for 2 with a drink

I've been here for Mother's Day Brunch, Holiday parties, a friend's get together and a funeral repast/repass. Although we had one unpleasant experience I can honestly say that the food has been consistently good, the staff very attentive and the atmosphere pleasing. I would certainly recommend Luciano's to anyone who will listen.

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...

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
