“Great Food and service”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

We made reservations and we had no waiting. Waiter was superb. Probably the best Italian food I have ate. We were a party of 9 and we were very pleased with food and service. Our waiter explained the menu in ways we understood completely. will go back when visiting San Antonio.

“Glorified Olive Garden”
Reviewed January 14, 2014 via mobile

Just dined this evening. Walked into the restaurant about 90 minutes prior to closing. Person at the door did not greet us, only held up 2 fingers to indicate a party of two. Sat at the table waiting for our server to take drink orders and waited 15 minutes before anyone asked if we had been helped. We were literally 30 seconds away from walking out. Once the server arrived, he took our drink orders and brought is bread. Then told us his shift was over and someone else would be taking over. Once our new server arrived, food was brought fairly quick. It was extremely hot temperature wise. Food was good but not any better than going to an Olive Garden. Food was priced fairly. Location is really good right next to the Riverwalk. Only real complaints was the service and the lack of wow in the food.

“Daughter's Sweet 16 and a Perfect Dinner!!”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Luciano's made for the perfect evening for our beautiful daughter's Sweet 16 party. I want to send a huge shout-out to Bianca for setting up the perfect evening for all of us. We had a private room; very comfortable. The lasagna and fettuccine were scrumptious. The cake and cupcakes were unbelievable. The coffee was so tasty, especially on a very cold night. Luciano's accommodated us and made it look so easy. The servers were professional and friendly and made it look easy serving 20 people. Check out this jewel of a restaurant located on San Antonio's beautiful Riverwalk. Here's a tip; be sure to have dinner during the holidays when the Riverwalk is lit-up with colorful Christmas lights.

“Nice evening”
Reviewed December 27, 2013 via mobile

Was here in San Antonio riverwalk celebrating wife's b day. Decided to try this place out. We had a nice dinner. Service was pretty good and friendly. Nice wine list with great napa cabs which are a personal favorite. Food was good overall. Only true diss appointment was dessert. Ordered banana crepes and could not have been more disappointed. They were not warm, crepes were obviously not made in house but pre-prepared. The bananas were not ripe and ingredients were ok. I've never had a crepe I did not like until just now.
Still, nice place.
