The calamari was rubber.The food is not worth the money. The wait staff is rude. I will eat somewhere else.

Our favorite Italian restaurant in the Puget Sound area. Small and unpretentious. It is all about the food and the owner (who it quite the character...in a very good way). The food is amazing, and there is a very well appointed menu (read...large variety). Includes...More

Very cozy place that even had some bottles of Chianti in plain sight. I was raised in the pleasurable atmosphere of old world Italian's. I ordered lasagna and commented that I had been at Il Lucano once before but did not try the Lasagna because...More

You may be calling when they are closed. Try closer to dinner time. You may want to check their hours of service online.

yes, I was just at this restaurant and they have a 4 Page menu of gluten-free items. all of the gluten free pastas take a little longer to prepare but they are well worth it.
