“Lovely!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2014 via mobile

I went to Lucianos with some students and staff during one day at summer school. The food was fantastic as always and the service was spot on. The students got children size portions which were half a pizza or a small portion of pasta, and the adults ordered what they liked. The food came out quickly and was hot and tasty. I could not fault anything. The staff even let the kids keep the little ice cream animal cups that the ice cream came in. The kids were so happy! It was one boy's birthday and they came out with the big hat and we all sang happy birthday to him. It really made his day!

I have been a lot of times and have always enjoyed the food amd service.

“Singing waiters”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

Sunderland may not be a top tourist resort, but many will find themselves there either because of its fine university, or Premier football side. I have no hesitation in recommending Lucianos in High Street West. Good quality Italian food, reasonable wine and beer selection, and friendly cheerful staff. Waiters sing snatches of the Classics as they move about, and if they suspect you have a special occasion you may be serenaded. A happy cheerful place. well worth attending at "happy hour" if it suits you. Access may be a problem via a the steep stairs

“Good Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

Myself and my partner went out for a meal on Friday night to Lucianos . The room is nice but a wee bit dark for my taste entry is up a steep flight of stairs so not good for any one who has problems with mobility. The staff were efficient and professional and the food was hot tasty and plenty full what else could you ask for? The bill was reasonable and all in all a nice first visit.

“Always eat here when in the area.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

My husband and I used to eat here frequently when we first met. Now as we live 200 miles away we don't get to visit very often but whenever we are in the area we make a special trip to visit. Food is very reasonably priced and delicious. It is a busy place so waiters don't have time to chat but serve you quickly and efficiently. Have visited for over 20 years and hopefully will continue. Would not eat anywhere else in Sunderland.
