Don Luciano's Place

Posted By on Wed, Sep 18, 2002 at 12:00 AM

Just a 20-minute drive from the bridge, Don Luciano’s patio is on the river, a stone’s throw from Bob-Lo Island. No canned music, no umbrella drinks, just serenity and local wines. Don or Luciano (the partners) may emerge and share a tumbler with you. Nothing here feels mass-produced. You can sense the touch of an individual human being — that’s Luciano — in the kitchen. After complimentary bruschetta, try succulent grilled quail, juicy trout, or house-made sausage. Finish with dense, tart orange cheesecake with chocolate sauce. A perfect summer evening out.
