My husband and I went for dinner for our Anniversary last night and had some of the best Italian food I have ever eaten in a restaurant. The restaurant is in a small strip plaza with a very nondescript front, but once inside, it is very intimate with small dining rooms and a bar. The wait staff is friendly and... More

We went here based on the wonderful reviews. Those reviews were not wrong. From the minute you come in to the moment you leave, the experience is just wonderful. It's like eating in a friend's home who just happens to be a great chef. We each had a different entree and they were all excellent. The attention to detail was... More

Don't be put off by the mini-mall storefront. Ristorante Lucano is a top notch restaurant which sets a luxurious mood inside with several rooms providing intimacy and personal service. The service was as excellent as the food, with knowledgeable wait staff and just the right amount of attentiveness. Our party of five had a variety of meats (chicken, lamb and... More

What a fantastic experience all the way around. The atmosphere was pleasant, the service was fantastic, and the food was spectacular. I had the little neck clams in a spicy tomato broth appetizer (one of the specials) and the veal medallions with wild mushrooms in a cognac cream sauce, both of which were out of this world. My friends tried... More

Certainly one of the top three in Rochester. A "go to" stop when entertaining out of towners. A good wine list.

We went on a Friday night. There were more specials than what was on the menu! They offered 5 different fresh fish dishes, a lamb , cowboy steak and veal chop special. We were offered a choice of three different potatoes and several vegetable sides. I had the halibut with lemon and olives. It was delicious! I also had the... More

We have dined here many times and the food and service have been excellent every time. The zuppa di clams is a fantastic appetizer. All of the daily seafood entrees have be very good and the Osso buco is the best. They also have a good reasonably prices wine list.

Shared dishes, amounted at $28 per person. The portions were small, not exceptionally creative. Rather tasty. Service was good.

Had a wonderful dinner here. Food and service were A+. Veal Medallions in the creamy cognac sauce and the gnocchi were great! Will be back again.
