Normally, a great place to dine. However, this night, the manager was the waiter and he took over 30 minutes to ask for our order. The dining experience took over 3 hours with only 45 minutes of eating; the rest was waiting.

2020 brought a different Christmas Eve for my husband and I so we decided to go out for dinner and it was amazing. Although the menu was limited for the holiday, it was delicious! Restaurant adhered to all CDC regulations while providing a pleasant experience.

This was mine and my families first time at Luciano’s. We were celebrating my grandmother’s 80th birthday. She loved the place and so did everyone else. The food was AMAZING!! The service was good, but it did take a little long to get things such as: the food, drinks and check. We were enjoying ourselves and each other’s company, so it wasn’t so bad. I have to say, they did a great job with setting up the seating arrangements. The tables are spaced out, so you feel comfortable eating and talking with no mask. I will definitely be going back.

the food was good but the poor waiter was working all the tables and the service did suffer. I saw how hard everyone was working and was very patient because people were doing the best they could... but I dont think we will go back again until things get back to normal....

We had a great time! Celebrating our anniversary and the food was delicious. Apple cider Sangria's were amazing! The molten lava chocolate cake with vanilla gelato was out of this world. My husband enjoyed the salmon, I had veal. Ambiance is lovely. We will go back again for all our special occasions.

I celebrated my 50th birthday at Luciano's. The entire evening was perfect. We were put in a private room, had our own server and the food was to die for. So good. Their Belgian Waffle with Gelatto is a must have. They had their own parking lot but it was full and difficult to find a spot so I parked on the street. The upstairs restaurant is very nice. It has an old charm to it. I will definitely be back there for dinner.

Everything was delicious. Service was great! It did take a little long for the food but I’m hoping that was because it was made fresh. Not faulting them for that because everything was delicious and we had a great night.

I've been here plenty of times before. The food is always delicious, but the service was exceptionally slow. I don't know if it was the kitchen or the waiter, but it was unacceptable for a weekday lunch.

Went here for Valentine’s Day dinner. Food was great! The only thing issue was that we were seated near the doorway and there was a very cold draft coming. We initially asked for another seat before sitting and there were other tables we could see that was available but we weren’t accommodated. If not for that I would have given a 5 star review.

Very nice place, cosy and quite. Excellent service, waiters always paying attention to what is happening on the table but not annoying. They are there but you don’t notice them. But food could be much better. We didn’t try Italian food though but stake was a bit cremated. As well as they have to really work on their deserts. But overall good impression from the place.
