My wife and I have eaten at Lucatelli's more than a few times since we moved to Ithaca 4 years ago and it has steadily gone down hill every time. Well we went tonight and I just had to post this. The soup on the salad bar was so old and burnt it stunk up the whole restaurant. I made a comment to our server but after our meal it was still there. I have been cooking for over 20 years so I know when a soup is burnt and it was crispy. My wife and I had 2 cokes, 2 glasses of house wine, 2 orders of cheese sticks, ravioli and veal parm and our bill was $87.00. We ate a HUGE meal with all the trimmings and loads of wine at Just a Taste 3 nights previous and our bill was $89.00. Lucatelli's is grossly overpriced for what they call "homemade" food.
