“Perhaps the best appetizer I have ever had”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

Luke Palladino's restaurant in Harrah's Atlantic City has an appetizer called Mushroom and Taleggio Crespelle. If you like mushrooms make this your first choice. I have been there several times and their chicken parm is excellent as is the standing baby back rib roast. For a special treat for two or more diners ask about that night's Tasting Menu.

They are open for dinners only @ 5:30 PM and are closed on Wed & Thurs in the winter. Get a Harrah's Total Rewards card and you will receive a modest discount on your meal as well as reduced parking rates at the Total Rewards properties.

“BEST ITALIAN ANYWHERE! PERIOD.”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

This is the only restaurant that I am confused as to why there are bad reviews. I make Luke Palladino's a MUST go to when I am in AC. Best Chicken Parm EVER. The appetizers and desserts are out of this world. The servers are super friendly and there is an assistant as well. I have been here at least 5 times and it is by far my favorite Italian restaurant in any city without a doubt.

“Rude staff”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Went to Luke Palladino's restaurant in the Harrah's casino for happy hour drinks and appetizers with several other friends. The girl that was seating customers was very rude to our party. She told us that we were going to have to take a seat because she had to walk through the bar area to sit people. The appetizers were mediocre at best. We spent more on a few drinks and appetizers than we did the night before for an entire meal at a nice restaurant in Cape May. We won't be back.

“It is not about chicken parm!”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

So sad to see so many reviews that miss the point of the place. Luke and his very capable staff are brilliant at seasonal authentic Italian cuisine. go with the sampling menu and let them show you what they can do. No one. Let me repeat that, no one does a better job with fresh pasta, fish meat and veg.

“Great Service-Mediocre Food”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Cocktails were very good
Zucchini app was tasty
Caesar salad was mediocre
Veal dish was dry with poor taste to it even the chef agreed
they replaced that entree
Buccatini was a bit mushy and average at best
my wife had Lobster and Shrimp which had no taste
Servers delivered a dessert to make amends
Nice place but they need some work in the kitchen
Also the wine list could use some help from Napa Valley
