In Rochester for a conference and decided on dinner and a movie. Not being very familiar with the locations, we inquired immediately if we would be able to dine and be out in time for a movie. It was clear from the beginning that our waiter made it a priority to get us on time to the movies.
With that being said, there was no loss in service or quality of food.

Everything was wonderful! Food was so good, we're going there for lunch before heading out of town.

I almost hesitate to write a review because it is hard enough getting in here! Make your reservations well in advance. This italian food is outstanding! Wonderful attention to detail. Cozy atmosphere. Attentive, intelligent hosts and service. Thank you for a memorable evening.

In advance of taking a special friend out to dinner, I asked yet another friend, a Sicilian, which restaurant in Rochester she'd recommend for the best southern Italian food in town. Her spontaneous reply was "Ristorante Lucano" and right she was.
After a meal there, I am in total agreement. Our waiter was delightful and full of good advice, without being overbearing. He suggested the greens and fava bean appetizer, which was heavenly. The entrees, two of which were unique fish dishes, and one a meat, were prepared and presented beautifully and each tasted beyond delicious. We felt like we'd been transported to another, more elegant universe, between the taste of the foods and the ambiance of our quiet, corner table. My guest was delighted with the experience, too. Overall, it was a perfect evening.

Chuck and Joann make sure their guests feel their warmth. The atmosphere is intimate and warm. The staff makes you feel like you are the most important people in The restaurant.

The appetizers and salads are all unbelievable. It is their fish dishes that make us go back often. Unique fresh fish excellently prepared. I love their codina fish in lemon rhyme sauce. Never had fish this food. Their pasta dishes are wonderful as well

It is a neighborhood restaurant preparing dishes that could rival a bit city restaurant. Try the best italian restaurant in Rochester.
