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

Hello and thank you for bringing this to our attention. We do slightly undersalt our pastas as some people are very sensitive to salty foods or a high sodium diet. 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

Met a friend here for lunch and loved everything. From the decor, atmosphere, waitress, price...but especially the food. I had the house salad with balsamic and the Chicken Parmasen sandwich. Would def recommend this place as well as come back here again, soon!

Very poor service impacted overall rating. We have eaten here many times but the service seems to get worse over time. Last night, we waited 90 minutes for our food and had different explanations about reason for delay. Typically, a restaurant might offer a free dessert or something to compensate for the excessive delay but no luck here. Come on... More

We received a gift card for Lubranos from one of my coworkers. We had heard told things about them but had never been there. 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

I have been to this restaurant many times over the past decade but I have finally had enough- I am never going back. Yes their food is good but not good enough to overcome their horrible customer service and poor management. Many times we have to wait at least 30 minutes despite a reservation weeks in advance. Always our food... More

Mrs W. I rarely respond to these reviews because I take the good with the bad and try to better anything we need to work on. However in your case i will make an exception. Unfortunately there are people like you that use these forums to continue to bully and abuse the various establishment even after they've left. I've put... More

There are so many strip mall restaurants in our area that its impossible to try them all. That is why we depend on the recommendation of friends when trying someplace new. Lubrano's was suggested by our lifelong friends that live in Tom's River NJ as a good bet to try as it sits in the approximate middle of the distance... More

Rosemary bread was wonderful salad accompanying dinner better than most. If you want great veal dishes this is the place to go. entrees are made to order so it is NOT fast food. Even the coffee would give Starbucks a run.

What a wonderful atmosphere and incredible meal! My large family was taken care of by our server Chris who treated us as if we were family. From food recommendations that did not disappoint to a paced meal that was truly a dining experience! Our new favorite! Yum!

Our friends convinced us to have dinner at Lubrano last week and I for one was sorry. I ordered the Chicken Savoy and what was served to me was a chicken entree drenched in balsamic vinegar. Try as I would I was unable to eat more than a few mouthfuls. The accompanying spinach was mushy while the peppers added little... More
