We happened upon this restaurant because the one we were supposed to go to was closed and it was near by. What a surprise!! I agree with some of the reviews, it is pricey but you get what you pay for. It's BYOB so it balances out. I'm from the NYC area and love restaurants, been to some of the... More

Best Italian fresh food! B y o b. Make reservations as early as possible because it is small and very popular! Excellent, friendly service.

On 9/6/2016, a group of five of us had a wonderful meal at Luciano. Their veal, prepared numerous ways is out of this world. Tender, cut with a fork veal. It is a small, cozy venue. On the noisy side, but not off putting. All in all we had 5 very happy diners.

The food was solid, the service attentive and Dante our waiter was charming. Try the orecchietti special (spinach, sausage) was absolutely delish! The Bruchetta was good if you like garlic. Chicken Parm was good.The atmosphere was nicely casual in a shore-upscale way. A good choice.

Visited this restaurant for a family meal. Reservation are needed as place is small and fills up quickly. Apps were shared amongst the group and portions were large. Plenty of variety for entrees and all were tasty. Would recommend and visit again.

We go to Luciano 's for our anniversary every year. Great Italian food; especially the home made pasta. This family run restaurant is very popular so definitely tr a reservation. Their eggplant parm is my very favorite. The chicken and veal parm is also excellent. We love the calamari for an appetizer. Usually get calamari for take out during the... More

We can't say enough great things about Luciano's. From the extremely accommodating service from Joe from door to table, the friendly and knowledgable staff, the inviting and intimate decor and most of all the wonderfully prepared dining. I had the Rigatoni Monte which was innovative and delicious. My wife had the Salmon over a bed of wonderfully sautéed spinach that... More

We have been to Luciano's for many years and always go back for the consistently wonderful meals. It is a BYOB so that helps. The restaurant is a bit loud and dark, but the meals are so flavorful. Portions are perfect sized. Don't need those massive plates of food that taste so generic Italian. You want to take a cooking... More

I really agonized over writing a good review for Luciano's because I want to cut down on the number of people who go there and be able to get a reservation whenever I want. However, my conscience forces me to be honest and tell you that the food is fabulous and you will not leave disappointed. If they have their... More
