Very good food. A little expensive but worth it to know that you won't be rushed, and can enjoy a meal in a quiet environment so you can hear your conversations!! Been coming for years and I suggest they change the menu a little as it is the same all these years. On the other hand, they had 5 fish... More

We had great experience at this restaurant last week. Service was excellent! We ordered lamb and veal dishes and they were delicious . Portions are a very nice size (not too small or too big). Atmosphere is very nice and everyone was super friendly. Prices are reasonable in my opinion. We will be back!

My two girlfriends and I came to Lucano's to catch up on each other's lives. We were quickly seated (did have reservations). One friend and i both ordered the beef - one medium well and one medium rare! Both dishes were served at the same time - and done to perfection! Our friend had the gnocchi - her favorite. The...

I suggested this restaurant for an evening out with very good friends as I'd had a lot of experience dining here over the years, but my partner had not. It's always a good thing when you stick your neck out and are not disappointed in any way, especially when bringing someone who's not been to a restaurant before. Our server,... More

First trip to Lucano... greeted by the owner who showed us to our seats. He was very personable and gregarious. The wait staff (can't recall the young lady's name) was simply stellar. She took time to answer our questions, make suggestions and even have a few laughs. When I complimented the olive oil - she brought the owner to our... More

My husband and I love this restaurant! The Chef's specials are always amazing, don't pass them up! In fact, I haven't ordered from their actual menu in a while although everything is always delicious. Most definitely one of Rochester's best restaurants.

It was not my birthday but a friends- the fresh seafood is better than ANYWHERE else around Rochester. I try to go Tuesday or Wednesday- fresh fish delivered on Tuesday and Friday. I had the Corvina - similar to halibut, prepared in a Mediterranean style- it was Heaven on a plate. And my friend had another fresh fish selection with... More

Another trip to Restorante Lucano and anther EXCELLENT experience. We took friends that had never had the pleasure of dining there before. We were greeted by Joann and Chuck, the owners, and joined our friends at the bar for a pre-dinner cocktail. The cocktail lounge area is warm and comfortable area and ample seating for early arrivals. We were seated... More
