Luciano's Italian Ristorante & Lounge opened for business Thursday after an invitation-only grand opening the previous night. It's the second restaurant to open downtown in the last month or so, joining Cubanu.
If you're having trouble finding anything about it on the Web, you're not alone. A fruitless Google search led me to make a phone call for the Web site, which has a menu (senza prices) and hours, but not much more . A woman answering the phone suggested dinner for two with a bottle of wine might run about $100. Strangely, the Web site displays their location about five blocks too far up Main Street, at Elizabeth Avenue.
The three-story building at Main and Monroe streets also houses 14 rental apartments and had been open for private parties late last year.
Keep an eye out for a review in the coming weeks. Ciao.
