Their food is prepared especially for you. It may take a while before you are served your order, but it's sooooo worth it!!! I ordered a pasta dish off the menu and they made it. I highly recommend Lubrano's. Their pizza is wonderful too!

We ordered the Calamari Appetizer. It was very tasty. I ordered Shrimp Scampi Risolto. I have never seen that Dish offered elsewhere. My Wife ordered Eggplant Rolotini. It was good, but, certainly no better that other Restaurants. The Bread and Dipping Oil served was good. Overall, it was good, but, other than the Shrimp Scampi Risotto, I'm not able to... More

Gone are the days where we had to venture into NYC to find not only good italian but really top notch REAL italian food. Under the recommendation of a co worker we tried Lubrano's for the first time. Being that it's in a strip center we weren't so sure as to what to expect but we were pleasantly blown away... More

Came here for the first time to celebrate a relative's birthday. Thank goodness we were able to make a reservation since we had 7 people. Otherwise less than 6 you can not. Very extremely busy restaurant. I would suggest on a Saturday night to go early before 5:30. Food and service were excellent. Calamari tasty. Rosemary bread placed on the... More

I would give the restaurant 5 stars but when you have reservations and you have to wait a half hour after the time the reservation was for, well that is not good. The food was very good, in particular loved the appetizer of calamari. The bread and salad was good as well. The main meal eggplant was a very large... More

Went there on a snowy night and we have never seen it so empty. Icy roads the reason. Food superb and great service tonight. All in all worth the trip out in the cold. Awesome food!!!

A very nice place, excellent service but the sin of very under salted pasta. The eggplant parm was loved, the service was superior (thanks Kate), but the clams with linguini was so under salted it just ruined the meal. I'm not a real picky eater but I know my pasta. I sincerely hope they can fix this or maybe it... More

On your next vist please ask for your pasta to be cooked al dente or ask your server to have us make sure the pasta is salted properly. We will... More

I ordered chicken giambatta which is chicken with in a brown vinegar based sauce with peppers onions mushrooms and tiny Italian sausages. Absolutely fantastic and my wife ordered they're signature New York Strip Steak what they... More
