“Hope to get there again soon”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Lugano is a nice place to go when you want Italian. The food is well-prepared and delicious. We went with some friends and all of us tried something different. We were all happy with our choices. The staff is attentive and has a "local" feel - no corporate fakeness here. I highly recommend it.

“"Do Not Miss This Restaurant!"”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

Get you and your friends to this Italian restaurant as soon as you can - wonderful atmosphere, great server with attention to detail, and could answer any question we had. Our plates were empty, and short of being little pigs, we could have had even more at lunch! Easy to get to, plenty of parking, and once you enter the restaurant everyone there makes you feel very welcome. We had a late lunch, and the variety on the menu was unbelievable. Our taste buds selected seafood, and we were not disappointed. This is a must go back to place for great food and fun, and if you do not live in Cary, make the drive. You will leave with a smile on your face!

“Great food and atmosphere”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

This restaurant has a Great Italian menu with lots of choices. They also have a gluten-free menu. Service is excellent . They can also take items off the main menu and make them gluten free. They also have gluten-free bread and pasta. I would definitely go here again.

“Great Value, Great Food, Super Flavor and STAFF”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

Many times you wonder when a restaurant "sheds" its chain ties and changes to become "local" will it work?
I have to say that Lugano's will work and THRIVE!
Wonderful, great service and the nicest staff around
The Leadership team really knows how to pick winners!
We will be back on regular basis!
We just only had a crying baby next to us, with parents that didn't know what to do, the server graciously asked to help, making them realize it was time to take the screaming toddler out of the dining room

“Good Value - great food”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

i visited Lugano's for a late lunch. The menu selections offered everything from lunch combos to a full-course meal. The service was very good. The staff easily handled special requests, and the food was very good. Will definitely go back.
