Food was good but the lamb chops were far too fussily done. Wine was decent. Service was okay to start with but it did improve but was fine overall. The music was very poor and didn’t suit what seemed to be a high-end restaurant.

Very friendly restaurant family atmosphere, the food. Was faultless ( if I wanted to be picky I’d say the free olives were not very nice) great wine list to suit the pocket. Will certainly return soon!

Always visit Lucianos when we are at our daughter’s and always enjoy it but this time the food was exceptionally good, wine wasn’t bad either! We will continue with our visits

The pizza looks nice and their homemade bread is nice , I wouldn’t call bruschetta what we had served but it was tasty .I was quite disappointed with the monk fish dish, it contained inedible chewy bits .the monk fish should be skinned and membrane removed before cooking.

Eating at Luciano's is always a pleasure. We are welcomed like family and the staff is very attentive, the food is delicious and the atmosphere very pleasant. My husband and I visit every 5 to 6 weeks on a Sunday and even when busy Lucio always accommodates us. It is only 5 minutes walk from our home so we can have a drink without worrying about who's driving. Brilliant!
I highly recommend this restaurant.

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.
