We may never have spotted this restaurant tucked away in a little strip mall across from Wegmans on East Ave. It was recommended when we asked around for a good Italian restaurant. We arrived around 7 pm and were advised without a reservation, we would...More

This eighteen year classic restaurant stands out in a town with great Italian ristorantes! The extensive menu is rich in Sicilian favorites, and house made pastas. Specials included a variety of creative salads and less common fish (corvina and barramundi) prepared with savory sauces. The...More

Good food. Ever if you order wrong food, it's ok. If you order right food for that day, it's great! Nice place to eat. You can use as business dinner too.

Different menu than the classic Italian, with some interesting combinations. Half our group liked the food very much, the others thought it just so-so or disappointing. Portions were generous and waitstaff were cordial and attentive.

This is the first time I have reviewed a restaurant twice. That speaks volumes of my love for Lucano. Celebrating my Mom's 84th birthday we hit the trifecta of service, quality seafood, and atmosphere. We started with an insalata di mare- it was just perfect....More

Having lived in the area most of my life, I had always heard that Lucano's was a great restaurant. I am so disappointed that I hadn't had the opportunity to try it sooner! Our dinner was excellent. Every meal (we were 6 people in total)...More

The fact that Lucanos is listed at #7 and Amore is listed at #333 sort of says it all. Also remember that the public writes these reviews, not a person who's job it is to review restaurants. Why else would you have sub shops... More
