Three of us, including our 14 month old, have just had lunch at Luciano's, the food was delightfully authentic and really tasty. Luciano's is the latest addition to the Burnt Ash Road collection of restaurants and in my humble opinion is by far the most outstanding in Lee. The pasta we had was full of Italian flavor and seasoned to perfection but the Pièce de résistance, the homemade Tiramisu was worth a return visit just to have that again. With friendly staff and reasonably priced Italian food, Luciano's is definitely a restaurant to visit again and again.

A local to us and always busy. It makes a change that an independent has go it so right. Fantastic homemade pasta with fresh sauces - It really does make a difference. There's a lot of competition in the area with Carola and Bianco just down the road but make no mistake, pound for pound and quality for quality this is the best. Also parking is not an issue, just make sure you book a table in advance.
A master stroke, just enough old school to make it new school. Forget the rest, this is the one to watch..
I ate here at the weekend, it's an excellent local italian. I have been to most of the locals and definately see this as being ahead. I think a reviewer below mentioned Carola, I agree it's a great place also, but slightly lacking in character and quite cold - but nice nonetheless. Luciano's is definately the place to be in Lee at the moment.
We've been to all the locals including area further a field and this place tops them all!!! A super place to have locally, no more going into town for me. It was save me money, no trains or taxis - thank you. Love it!
Fantastic...Must be the best in Lee ans SE London. Looking forward to our Christmas party and NYE!!!! Fantastic value and they do Black Vanilla ice cream!!
Thought we try following the reviews and was not disappointed, we tries their special scallops started and linguine with lobster, both were fantastic! The decor is very nice and feels like you are in a swanky central London place without being pretentious. Staff are attentive, quite old fashioned, which make a change. They have really down a good job and is certainly refreshing from boring chains and other lazy independents. See you regularly. JS
Had a good night at Luciano's, great vibe, great food and great value for money considering what you get. Peroni on tap was a surprise, we really enjoyed the evening and will go back. Certainly one of the better locals - thank you.
We had a fabulous evening at Luciano's, we were well looked after and enjoyed the food. There's a good choice of restaurants in the area but have to say this is the best you can get. J
We visited Lucianos on Sunday evening for the first time. Place is nicely decorated , staff were attentive , food was OK. Having read the reviews I expected a lot more from the food , but sadly OK is the best I can offer. Try Carola , just up the road if you want a really good Italian meal , despite the fact that the excellent staff are mostly Portugese.
Wow, Wow, Wow! At last a place were we can eat feel, drink well and not have the through the roof. No automatic service charge or prima donna waiting staff - Thank you. Probably the best Italian in London.
We booked this restaurant as a birthday treat for one of the girls. What a great choice, it is local to us and has only been opened 6 months. It was fantastic, staff were great and the atmosphere was fab. We slightly got carried away with the wine but could walk home - what a great place - see you again. We all ate pasta and pizza with a few steaks - everything was perfect. thank you.
We had a wonderful meal here last week, food is amazing, we have already booked up our next visit. Grazie mille.
I have eaten here a number of times and I tell all my friends about it too. The food is authentic and very tasty. I love the pasta with the shellfish lots of little surprises hidden under the pasta little clams and prawns. I am eating here on Saturday with my friend she loves it too!
