Last night in London dinner with the family. Good venue, small but adeqsuate. Good menue and wine list - the lamb ragu is to die for. Service was friendly. Pretty popular place, so make sure you book to avoid disappointment. They have a bar next door where you can have drinks before dinner. Recommended!

Next door to the restaurant- a little less formal. Ordered bottle of prosecco which was not cold and tasted terrible. Wine cooler and ice sorted the problem out and we went on to drink a few more bottles 🥂 Also ordered a couple of pizzas which were very tasty but I have to agree with a previous reviewer that the...

In Bar Luciano (next door to the restaurant) you get the best of both worlds; a proper bar with delicious ciccetti (Italian version of tapas), Prosecco on tap and you can order from next door's menu too if you're really hungry. And best of all, some nights they have laid-back live music. Last Thursday a superb guitarist was playing acoustic... More

Couldn't get a table in the restaurant so we ate in the bar next door. Fantastic atmosphere, friendly efficient service and we weren't rushed on our way when we'd finished! The pizza was very tasty with lots of toppings. Most of the pizza was crisp but the middle three inches were decidedly soggy! Still enjoyed it though!

Sadly our son is moving out of Lee but we enjoyed a final lunch at Lucianos. Lee is fortunate to have a non-chain real Italian like the old days, with a good menu choice. Not sure about a wine list because we just wanted a house white and red, both good. Our starter was the ever popular Melanzane Parmigiana and... More

Love this restaurant and have enjoyed their great pizza but there is a good choice of other delicious Italian food. Staff is friendly and service attentive without being overbearing. A great place to catch up with friends in a non-chain restaurant. Will be back!

Family-run Luciano's is the best restaurant in the area. Serving up authentic Napoli pizzas from the wood-fired oven plus excellent Italian classics. The pasta is excellent. We often pop in and order a takeaway pizza, then wait in their little bar next-door with a cocktail or Prosecco, where they happily deliver the pizza to us to take home. Last time... More
