My husband and I had dinner at Luciano's on a busy Saturday night. Reservations are recommended! We were seated prompty upon arrival. Very nice ambiance - elegant while not being stuffy. Saw a wide variety of patrons from couples to families with children. As others have noted, staff was very attentive and professional. Our waiter was very friendly, knowledgable about the food and wine menu and prompt in checking in on us. Extensive selection of wines with some of the better prices we have seen for good wines. Loved the menu - could not decide what to order. I had to try the beef carpaccio to start. My husband had a salad of mozzarella stuffed with ricotta, roasted tomatoes and arugula. Both were delicious. The carpaccio serving was huge and it is by far the best in Charlotte. For dinner, i tried the gnocchi and my husband ordered a pasta special - veal stuffed cannelloni. We loved the dishes - the gnocchi was the perfect consistency with a rich cheese sauce. Wish i hadn't been so full from the carpaccio to enjoy more of it! All food was served promptly and prepared very well - impressive on such a busy night. Total bill for nice bottle of wine, two apps, two entrees and two espressos was $150 with tax - very reasonable for the quality and quantity of food! We will definitely be back to try more things!
