Since 1990, Chef Seger's use of unique ingredients, homemade pastas, and innovative specials has created a loyal following. His modern flair mixed with traditional culinary skills has created a whirlwind of praise. You will not see seafood options on the regular menu for one reason; All our Seafood is wild not farm raised and we carry ONLY what is available and offer them as our daily specials.

LuNello has gone right to the source when purchasing ingredients and each dish reflects the attention placed into its preparation. All our meats in our menu have grown and purchased from meat purveyors that there is no use of antibiotics or hormones. Enticing presentation and courteous and professional staff are integral to LuNello's success. We are also excited to offer Wine Dinners and special events hosted in our private event spaces. We look forward to making your experience with us a special one, whatever the occasion.

Food and service were solid. Too many customers were walking to or from their table without a mask. Restaurants need to enforce the mask wearing. It’s not fair to all the patrons who are being careful. If a customer does not wear a mask, they shouldn’t be allowed in. Also, some tables were not six feet apart.

Wonderful variety of food served to perfection. I don't think I have recalled many restaurants that serve perfectly cooked sweet breads, which are not easy to prepare. Great variety of game and wonderfully fresh wild fish, no farm raised here. This has become one of our favorites.

We were there on a Monday and it was populated. Not all non-NYC restaurants can boast that.

A chef’s starter..an espresso cup full of consommé .. was served almost immediately. No description was given by the back waiter that serves it.

We each had a salad. Both the Caesar and the asparagus salads were very good. Our entrees were bronzini, veal parmigiana, and chicken Angelo. The latter was slightly above average with a real lack of direction of overall taste.

The waiters were a little obtrusive in that they were stalking to clear our plates. You can be attentive without standing over the patron. I did not get the sense this was the ‘A’ staff, given the night.

It was a very good meal, just not overwhelmingly so.

I chose this restaurant for a first date. The decor, atmosphere and incredible staff were nothing less than perfect. I was able to focus on a beautiful woman and the conversation we had and left the rest to LuNello and, it was a resounding success. The Frutti del mar Salad was unbelievably fresh and delicious and the Veal Shank fell off the bone and was incredible.

Unquestionably recommended.

Once we found the place, dinner was fantastic. There were 2 signs right across the street from each other and in the dark of night it was hard to tell which place was the restaurant and which was the parking lot. Service was attentive. The food was delicious. They have a great wine selection. All together a perfect combination that we didn’t want to leave.

We really enjoyed our dinner, the food was wonderful. My husband had calamari that was tender and crispy and my seafood salad was loaded with calamari, octopus, shrimp and lobster in a lovely dressing. My husband enjoyed a nice rabbit dish and I had a wonderful halibut, all was plated so beautiful. Just one little item, the bread on the table is always cold and and mediocre, such wonderful food and wait staff, maybe heat up the bread a bit?

Our waiter, Mario was very good and we enjoyed his service.

The reason for 2 star rating is because of the service we received from our server. To be fair, my compliments to the chef. Food is very good. As for service, we were not given any type of menus when we were seated. So when our waiter asked if we would like to order drinks, we could not answer. He seemed annoyed and walked away dismissively. When he came back with our menus, he simply stated “specials” are in he middle and walked away. The table next to us, however, received a full, almost verbatim, account of the specials. Maybe because we are Asians and he felt we might not understand? After pouring our first glasses of wine, he shake off the drips like he was shaking a ketchup bottle. Oysters and clams were not fresh. Cold and hot appetizers came out together. When they were placed on our table, the server slapped serving spoons on top of them, including on the oysters and clams ice tray. By the time we got to the sweetbreads, which was very good, the butter sauce has congealed. Entree did came out timely after apps were cleared. Again food was very tasty and well balanced. We made the best of our dinner despite of the service. Will be our first and last dinner here. Dining begins at the doors and ends when the guests leave.

The food was excellent, we ordered 3 pastas and they divided the pasta into a plate w (3) compartments so each guest would have a taste, professionally done.
The quality and taste was spot on.
Great wait staff.
