This is in a lovely spot overlooking the harbour and the staff were very nice but the food was quite expensive and distinctly average. It was overly garlicy, enough to now put me off lobster for a while and just not worth the money.

The location is pretty and should provide the perfect setting for a beautiful evening. Instead, the attitude and behaviour of the 'man' in charge really spoiled our experience. He was border-line aggressive, rude and dismissive.
Following this, we have never felt as rushed through a meal EVER. My starter was cleared with one hand and the main course there within seconds - this doesn't indicate freshly cooked food. Finally, I have never seen gnocchi shaped in the way it was here!!

This establishment is well run, and it provides a varied and interesting menu, coupled with attentive service from willing, mostly newly-trained staff. The daily menu specials, and standard drinks, are not too pricey. The restaurant is patronised by many Bahamians, and the private function rooms are used by civic groups such as Rotary, and professional associations for their regular monthly luncheon meetings.

The restrooms are always clean, and when needed for inside dining, the a/c works. There is ample parking available - and one does not feel obliged to take advantage of the valet parking service which is available. Outdoor dining is an option, and this affords the best views across to Paradise Island and the Atlantis complex (althouth this view is somewhat marred by the dredges and other sundry marine equipments which are moored just off the docks).

My judgement is that Luciano's could even score a rating of 4 on a good day - but it is rare, from my experience there, that everything is clicking together at any given time.

We love it here! Ive eaten at Lucianos so many times since having relocated from NY. We often end up taking out of town friends and they always enjoy themselves. Each time both the food and service are consistently excellent. I also like that I never feel like I'm being rushed along by the staff, once you're sitting at a table it's yours, for as long as you want especially at sunset when it gets pretty crowded. You cannot go wrong with any of the seafood dishes here - conch cakes are awesome!

Luciano's of Chicago offers an amazing view of Atlantis from it's outdoor patio. Try and get a table on the patio if you can.

The escargot appetizer was delicious. I had the lobster ravioli for my dinner and expected to have a bit more lobster filling than what I got. I've had better. For dessert I had the tiramisu and was disappointed. I definitely expected more from an Italian restaurant! There was too much cheese and not enough rum-soaked lady fingers! On the other hand, the rum raisin bread pudding was amazing.
