I could literally throw a rock from my house and hit the building we're that close. The only thing good there is their pizza and calzones.. but be prepared to PAY for each topping .. I think the xl is seriously $3.00 per topping. That's expensive! The menu is pricey for the quality & portion sizes. It was always VERY loud in there until they put those little walls up. We went there about a yr ago on Spaghetti night. Waited an hr for a table (with twin 1.5 yr olds!) When ordering I asked if my twins (mind you: they were MAYBE 1 1/2 at the time) could just split an order of spaghetti (which is an adult sized portion) the server told me no, because it was a special. I found this ridiculous as it was not me and my husband who wanted to share but two tiny toddlers.. was very disappointed..

My last visit to Luciano's was one to remember, but not because of the food. The atmosphere was terrible. I couldn't stand all the noise. Someone was having a birthday party in the main serving area and it was out of control. I don't think the manager should accept a party too large to serve in the designated area. This party was so loud and disturbing that they would've disrupted everyone even if they were in the party room. This restaurant is usually on the loud side, (maybe due to the design of the building/dining area) but my last experience there broke the record - - and my eardrums!

I love Italian food. It is a simple as that. But even the best food can be off-putting with bad service or a feeling that you are inconveniencing the waitress. Luciano's has a great balance of food as well as service. We have been there a number of times because it has atmosphere, excellent food, good service and an affordable price list for both food an beverage. Portions are just right and, in my experience, always delivered with a smile and the great feeling of being welcome.

Each dish is fantastic! Large portions for most. You will take some food home.
Weekends get loud there because a lot of families eat there. Very popular.
Best to go there on weekdays to avoid the crowds, but great place!

We decided to give the restaurant another try after our last unsatisfactory visit in November 2006. We were glad we did. Service was much improved, on Sunday April 27, 2008, bordering on exceptional. Orders were taken and food arrived promptly. Water glasses were refilled without asking. Our veal piccata arrived hot; meat was lightly breaded and tender, sauce tasty. Portions were plentiful. No disappointment was evidenced by waitstaff when we declined drinks and dessert. Everyone was helpful and pleasant. Patrons ordering pizza may wish to try their other entrees as we find them well prepared and reasonably priced. A/C was a bit cold and noise levels in the dining area high. Restaurant may wish to add heart healthy items to enhance menu. All in all, though, a very nice dining experience and we can again highly recommend them. John G.

Take it from me this is the Best Pizza it has just the right amount of sauce and cheese on it and that?s not the best part they have the greatest Calzones I love how they make them. A lot of places put the sauce inside the calzone but they place it on the side so you can dip it. The bread they give you is very good also yummm! I will say it can get a little bit noisy when there are a lot of people, it is wide open (Fri.&Sat) I liked the intiment setup they had were they were before. So I also go to his brothers place sometimes Lucci's Pizza in Irwin on R130 it reminds me of the first place that was in Rainbow Plaza it is even set up the same (min. the bar).

We eat there often, I especially love the eggplant parm. I've never had any better. The service is fast and everyone is friendly. The wait for a table isn't long at all.

Service can get slow when they are busy. The pizza is fantastic! It's thin and the crust is tender. Restaurant is very loud, but that just means it's no problem taking the kids!

We have chosen this place in the past based on location and food quality for price. The service, however, has always been so-so. We visited 8/16/06 with a party of 4.

We had to move once due a air conditioning vent overhead which was delivering a steady blast of cold air. The hostess expressed her displeasure over the move, by pitching our silverware and napkins onto our new table. After a 10 minute wait, our server arrived to take our order. I chose the Italian Wedding Soup, which was tasty but extremely salty. Salads were good sized and bread with plate of oil were more than satisfactory. Fish (Salmon, Cod) and pasta arrived hot and well (perhaps too well) seasoned, though side vegetables were slightly warm and bland. Server and staff seemed more interested in removing our plates than allowing us to finish eating. Feeling full and desirous of leaving I asked for the check.

Apparently a visit without ordering dessert is not appreciated. The server disappeared and after waiting 10 minutes I asked another waitress, then the hostess, to locate her. After another wait, she finally arrived and claimed that the check was there all along. A slip of paper materialized on the center of the table (with no folder or credit card holder). Why she did not hand it to me as I asked was unclear. I told her I still couldn't pay the bill, if she wasn't there to take it. It turned out she was pouring drinks on the other side (bar side). She seemed intent on arguing this with us and so I asked to speak to the manager. It turned out that she was the manager(!) After waiting another 5 minutes for a number to contact her boss, which she promised us, but never delivered, we left. Undoubtedly she returned to pouring more drinks. We spent more time waiting than eating. We won't be back.

PROS: Location, quality, price
CONS: Service, salty seasoning, noise

Lucianos is a great restaurant. I have never had anything that wasn't good while dining there. They have a wide variety of foods to choose from. I personally like the pizza and fettuccini alfredo. They wait to get seated isn't usually too bad and the servers are friendly. Very nice atmosphere.

PROS: nice scenery; good service; good food
CONS: needs to be more locations

Ive been eating at Lucianos for about 20 or so years, ate there when I worked at Marriccinis all the time. There calzones are the best I have ever had, there pizza is the best also. I now live in Donegal and when I am able I make the trip down to get a calzone with my friends and family. The new place has a very relaxing atmosphere. Great for a family night.

PROS: Calzones, Pizza, Wedding Soup, Appetizers
CONS: There's not one close to me!

I love Lucianos! It's a treat for me to go there when I'm in the area. The restaurant is beautiful in it's new location and the food is delicious. They have the best chicken salads and all of the pasta dishes I have tasted were great! They are reasonably priced and the service is great. I'm getting hungry for it by just writing this!

Wonderful Italian food either take out, dine in, or delivery. Love the eggplant. Great place to have a nice dinner, feel a little romantic, or even bring the kids (they love the pizza).

This is the original Luciano's - nothing compares. I don't live there anymore, but it's my first stop on visits home.
