Very good food. A little expensive but worth it to know that you won't be rushed, and can enjoy a meal in a quiet environment so you can hear your conversations!! Been coming for years and I suggest they change the menu a little as...More

My husband and I love this restaurant! The Chef's specials are always amazing, don't pass them up! In fact, I haven't ordered from their actual menu in a while although everything is always delicious. Most definitely one of Rochester's best restaurants.

Don't know
Does Ristorante Lucano have a full bar, or only beer and wine?

This is not really a question but I see no where else to post a comment...a reviewer mentioned that Lucano competes with Wegman's Italian restaurant across the street. Believe me what Wegman's serves is NOT Italian food. Most of what Wegman's produces is fine but I've eaten at Amore and it was just about the worst meal I've ever had. Lucano doesn't compete; it is the winner!

Response from Gary M | Reviewed this property |
The fact that Lucanos is listed at #7 and Amore is listed at #333 sort of says it all. Also remember that the public writes these reviews, not a person who's job it is to review restaurants. Why else would you have sub shops... More
