We've been to this restaurant many times. The owner is always there, and she definitely insures that the food is excellent. Unfortunately, over the years the service has deteriorated to such a basic level that we probably won't go back anytime soon. Our server was pleasant, but that's about it. She had to be reminded to bring us bread, never asked us how we liked our meal, had to be asked to bring us a check, and we had to flag down someone to pick it up.

We went there to celebrate 2 birthdays. The waiter was friendly, the service was very good, and the food was wonderful. Although I do not eat veal, the 2 guys in the group order different veal dishes and raved about them. The ladies order fish, and we loved ours too. We are back at the beach this weekend and are thinking about going again :)

This is my favorite restaurant in Avalon/Stone Harbor. We try and dine here at least 3 times during the season and Luciano's never fails to deliver a great dining experience - quality, presentation, presented by a friendly staff. - we already have reservations for two additional dates for August.

First time to visit this well recommended restaurant. Call early to get reservations or you will be at the 9pm seating like us. BYOB btw. Service was outstanding. Attentive, friendly and helpful. Pasta was very good. Spaghetti and lump crab was home made pasta and enjoyable. Special spinach gnocchi was even better. I can't say it was exceptional food only because I have had better in other big cities, but far and away exceptional for the shore. House salad was light and tastey. Disappointed in the portabella appetizer. Just didn't seem to all work together in the heat of the temp. Great Italian bread. Would have enjoyed garlic in the dipping sauce.

We stopped by last weekend with my cousin and her boyfriend after the fireworks and had a fabulous evening. I ordered the proscuitto-wrapped scallops surrounding sauteed spinach and it was perfect. The best was the ricotta pie delicately scented with a taste of lemon. This is the kind of dessert one dreams about and I am not a sweets person. Highly recommended for date night!
