Luciano Ristoranti of Ludington

Authentic Italian & Sicilian Cusine

Luciano’s Ristoranti has been a staple in downtown Ludington for over 23 years! Feel free to join them for a delicious lunch or dinner while they undergo their transitional phase to have a more modern, cosmopolitan look. Accompany your dinner with an “exclusive only to Luciano Ristorani” signature wine or true Italian cocktail.

The Maniaci family owns and operates Luciano’s Ristoranti, with emphasis not only upon exquisite food, but also on professional customer service. The restaurant will feel more like a local trattoria or bistro, setting it apart from other establishments in the area.

Menu

Luciano’s features the classic recipes of the Maniaci family,  such as brick-oven pizzas. Their pizza is unique and delicious, and made with fresh toppings. Luciano’s pizza is made from homemade dough which contains air, resulting in a light and crispy crust. They also have gluten-free pizza offerings and offer pizza delivery.

Not in the mood for pizza? Not to worry! Enjoy Luciano’s classic pastas like lasagna, spaghetti marinara, Fettuccine Bolognese, and Fettuccine Alfredo. Continue to be delighted and satisfied with other Sicilian and Italian fare including hand-cut meats, fresh seafood, and a  selection of fresh vegetables, pasta, and desserts from all regions of the Italian Peninsula. The Maniaci Family prides themselves in using only the freshest ingredients. Doughs and sauces are hand-made from scratch every time, and all ingredients are hand cut fresh, as available or imported from the most desirable and discerning suppliers. Please feel free to inquire daily as to their soups, salads, and sides of the day. All food is made fresh to order from scratch, prepared by Luciano Ristoranti’s award-winning, extensively-trained culinarians. 

Luciano’s was the first establishment in downtown Ludington to be approved in the Ludington Outdoor Social District. You can stop in, order your alcoholic beverage to go, and enjoy it outside, as long as it is in the approved district.
