I honestly did not like the food there, my co worker neither. The chicken had no salt, no flavor, its seem like I was eating boiling chicken.. The good thing, waiter was attentive and the place was clean. I did not pay the plate did not like but I wont return for sure.

Went here for sentimental reasons--celebrating our anniversary and had our 2nd date at Luciano's many years ago--and we had a wonderful dinner! Excellent dinner and service!

This is by far the most authentic Italian restaurant in town. It is set in a quiet area of town and there is never a wait....a good wine list...excellent entrees and good service. It is by far my favorite restaurant in town.

Everything is made at the restaurant. Veal scaloppini, lamb chops, stuffed shells were awesome. Also spinach Florentine was a great vegan entre. I thought the prices and wine list were very good. Service was excellent.

I booked the small (15-person) private room to celebrate a family occasion. We started our meal with two antipasto plates to eat family style. About half the party ordered an appetizer or salad, and everyone ordered an entree. Veal, chicken, beef, pasta, everyone pretty much ordered different things. I had the Veal Scallopine (marsala sauce) and thought it was amazing.... More

Excellent food! I confidently explore the menu here because I've never had a bad meal at this gem in Corpus. Joseph, one of the owner's is a often the chef and definitely can put together a great italian meal. We've even used him for catering outside events, although it took some convincing since they stay so busy at the restaurant.... More

Where to begin....the atmosphere is totally lacking. Sparsely filled with tables and the decor was almost absent. The appetizers were too large to be called appetizers. But even more disappointing was the total lack of taste in every dish. Some of it actually seemed to be prepared food from a can or jar. Meatballs were too perfect to be homemade.... More

The food is very good with a very diverse menu. I do find the place a bit noisy and I am very in to ambiance. My chicken parmesan was very and I would definitely return.

The food at Luciano's is really great and the atmosphere is wonderful. I love the old photographs of local Navy sailors that have been coming here for years. The owner greets you at the door and seats you. He also might end up joining you to chit chat it up for an hour or more. So, if you're wanting to... More
