I love Lunello. The food is always consistent r and the service impeccable. My only issue this time was we had an 8:30 sitting on a Friday night and 3 items we wanted to order were sold out. They said there were two large parties. That was very disappointing to sell out is items so early in the evening and it was our an anniversary dinner otherwise maybe I wouldn’t have cared so much.

Special birthday dinner, table for 4, seated in the corner, hoping for some quiet conversation. But, um, no. A waiter proceeded to recite, in a booming town crier voice, alllllllll the specials which were numerous. There is no way you would remember one of them. Luckily (oddly) they are printed ON THE MENU so there is NO reason he had to recite them at all. Yet he did. ALL EVENING AT EVERY TABLE. Tedious, unnecessary, and annoying.

Appetizers - zucchini flowers; stuffed figs; rock shrimp; Caesar salad - all delicious.

Orecchiette w/sausage and broccoli rabe was drowning in oil olive but not in a good way. Pappardelle Porcini was swimming in an oily cream sauce.

Wine was $11 per glass and not a generous pour but a stingy one.

Overall, a big disappointment.

The burrata salad was not with a traditional burrata (ie no soft gooey center), molten lava cake was solid inside and not molten, they never refilled my iced tea or brought me new silverware when they took my utensils after the appetizer and the risotto was very mediocre. The cheesecake, branzino, mussels, filet and halibut were good.

Very busy for a Monday. Service and food were much better when I was there over the summer.

Everything was Wonderful.
The food was Excellent.
(A loud group was next to us as we celebrated our Anniversary, but they were having fun!)
The server(s) forgot to take our drink orders but later provided a complimentary glass of wine and a dessert for us!

Been going for years. Very consistent. Excellent food and service. Nice that the specials are now in the menu w/prices. also they are seating you right away without a stop at the bar.
Continue to go with clients and family. Really a top notch place.

We had a lovely meal with our cousins on a quiet Monday evening. As usual, the service was excellent. My cousin however has a whole host of food issues. He ordered a dish that was not supposed to have onions, but when the dish arrived it had shallots, a kind of onion. The waiter and the Maitre'd saw the problem, had graciously had the chef remake the dish without onions immediately. This was all done with real class. This made a challenging dinner a very enjoyable one. We want to thank the staff for being so nice and understanding. We have eaten at Lu Nello a couple of times, but we now feel like regulars.

Service was rushed. Asked them to leave the wine list until we ordered our food and the response was that they only had two wine lists and then took it away. So odd! Then never came back to ask about wine. We didn't end up ordering it so it was their loss. We hadn't even gotten our drinks and the waiter
kept coming over to take our order. This was supposed to be a leisurely dining experience. If I wanted to be rushed, I would have gone to a diner for a lot less money.

Don't think we'll be back!

This was my first time at LuNello's but definitely not the last. The service is phenomenal. The food was extraordinary and the presentation was beautiful. Our waiter, Luiz, was extra nice and pleasant. Thank you Luiz for making our evening even more delightful.
My only suggestion would be to make the place a little bit lighter. It was a little difficult to read the menu. Maybe I am too old? :)

We were a party of 8. Happen to be celebrating my husband's 70th bday. Wait staff was excellent, food was good but not delicious. I asked for a dessert with a candle and it was not done properly.

Upscale Italian with many many specials, ask for the written copy, too many to remember when the waiter goes over them.
