The restaurant was very noisy. There were two large noisy groups when we arrived and they placed us right next to it! I was attempting to run away a few times.

The seafood starter was really good. However, the main course was really bad. There is very little food we can order of being gluten-free. They tried to change the cooking to be gluten-free, which makes food became tasteless. My steak was worst as they even burned it.

Great food here, just need to working in the table service. Seems they don’t have set table to a set waiter, which seem to make things confusing for them

We had an absolutely fantastic experience at Luciano's. A well thought out menu, delicious food, very reasonable priced for the quality. Nothing like the Italian chain restaurants, where the food is so uninspiring. A well run restaurant with a great buzz all evening. Will definitely come back.

We’ve become regular visitors to Luciano's. The main draw is the quality of the food, we’ve enjoyed so many dishes it’s hard to decide on a favourite. The service is prompt and informative, but never intrusive. Families seem very welcome. The menu has been the same in the year since we discovered it, so the plates we’ve enjoyed are always there, but the inventive ‘specials’ ensure variety. Very much our favourite local restaurant.

A really lovely family restaurant! Food was all home cooked! Pastas & sauces were delicious, starters were large, probably would share when we go back again! And homemade desserts were amazing! Will definitely be going back again!

The standard of food quality and service that attracted me to Luciano's years ago is no longer there. The place was simply too crowded. Trying to have a conversation with my family over dinner was very difficult given the level of noise. The wait for the food was unacceptable... 45 min between our starter and our mains. The table was not setup properly (not enough silverware, dishes or glasses, with one of the glasses still left on our table with what looked like Coke from their previous serving perhaps.)

It will be some time before I visit them again, with the hope that they have brought their standards back up.

All the food on our visit was fantastic. I must say that it was extremely noisy, I appreciate that you are unable to do much about that, but I do think that it is worth mentioning as maybe something can be done with the decor to absorb some of this noise.

We have been to Lucianos many times but this time we were very disappointed. They have moved the bar and crammed more tables into the front section. As a result it’s pretty cramped and incredibly noisy.

We arrived at a busy time on a Saturday night but didn’t get a warm welcome as normal. Our waiter was pretty taciturn and in a rush. We had to ask for our coats to be hung up. He only took half the drinks orders for the table as we were trying to decide. We had to chase a few times for someone to take the other drinks orders. The nibbles put on the table when you arrive were removed before we finished them.

The food was fine.

When we left no one said goodbye or helped get our coats.
All in all we didn’t feel like valued customers.
We won’t be going back anytime soon because of this experience.

Food good service ok. What let’s it down is the toilets and area that Leads to them. Strong smell of dampness and toilets not clean. This is a recurring problem.

First time we’ve been for pizza. It was good, no doubt, but, I can get equally as good for an overall cheaper deal. Maybe I’m still having difficulty separating pizza night from restaurant night, and, I like restaurant night. Nothing wrong with the food. Miss having the bar in the main room, the heart as been lost.

I love this little restaurant. I've been there for a really lovely group, evening leaving do, and twice with friends at lunchtime. Each time the food has been gorgeous, the wine very nice, the coffee perfect, the service and presentation top draw, and the portions huge (doggie bags are supplied!). I have recommended to many and will continue to do so.
