“Awesome Food, Strange Atmosphere”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

I love the food here! I have never had a bad dish. A few of my favorites are the pork medallions, the egg plant parm and the linguine with white clam sauce. I also find it to be very reasonably priced. You can bring your own wine for a $15 corking fee as well. The only thing I do not like about Luciano's is the decor/setup and atmosphere. You feel somewhat as though you are in a strip mall store with tables and chairs set up and low lighting, it leaves a lot to be desired. The food is definitely worth dealing with the strange surroundings though, just wish it had more of the cozy Italian restaurant feel.

“Nice place to go”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

One of our extremely picky friends ate here last year and insisted on going again this time around - quite a recommendation! He loves the alfredo, and everyone seemed quite pleased with their order. I had a hard time finding something without dairy in it (what did I expect in an Italian restaurant?) but settled for spaghetti and meatballs.

“One of our favorites”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

Luciano's is not a fine-dining experience, but the food and service are good, the menu (which has not changed for several years) offers good variety,has a good wine list, and all considered, the restaurant offers good value. This is one of our favorite casual dining places.
