Paolo's On 54, formerly Lubrano's, has a new name and bar, similar but better menu, better wine list, better pasta entrees AND, a biggie, FAR better service. Not that the service was so bad before, but now it's vastly improved with the barkeep's spouse serving tables. She was both fun and attentive. The Veal was tender and the pasta was... More

New renovations make for improved layout, add'l restroom & a bar. They've added some (small) tables out front which is fine for party of 4 or less, and will serve out there. We walked there from where we live & brought our dog. Waiter was friendly & brought some water out for our dog. Some menu items have changed, but... More

The new name is "Paolo's on 54" but run by the same great Team as before. Same seating capacity but new bar and has beer on tap and serving liquor. Our family has gone 3 times in the past 2 weeks and the food is better than ever! They worked very hard redoing it in nine days. I have had... More

We ate dinner on a Wednesday night and it was busy but not crowded. I had a pepperoni pizza that was quite good! It was a thinner crust/New York style with just the right amount of chew to the crust. My husband had the shrimp in olive oil and garlic pasta and he thought it was absolutely delicious! We were... More

We ordered the fried zucchini, chicken parmigiano, and cannoli. Everything was really good. A bit expensive but the food was high quality, so I didn't mind paying for it. We will be coming back for sure.

We had a group of 35 for my daughter's wedding. We had a selection to choose from including the chicken piccata, shrimp scampi and vegetarian pasta. They all were very good. The hit was the spinach ravioli with vodka sauce. Good portions and delicious. Dessert mini cannoli's were a great ending. Almost forgot the scrumptious garlic knots- a must have.... More

Stopped in after buying a groupon for lunch. Had the spinach salad, it was pretty bland. The corn lobster chowder was good. My husband really enjoyed his tenderloin sliders. Tea was pricey at $3 and wasn't very strong. All in all a nice lunch, but not sure we would return.

Was here for lunch. Had a small salad. More lettuce than anything else. The garlic knots were good. Will return to have a completer meal and enjoy a dinner here. Will update this review at that time.

Despite my Irish & German heritage, I was raised in a predominantly Italian American town in Upstate NY. Great, authentic Italian restaurants were abundant. I have had some decent Italian meals in my nearly a quarter century in NC; but no one restaurant has reminded me of my hometown Italian fare like Lubrano's. In two recent visits (one a date... More
