August 30, 2012: Greg from acclaimed Bay Area food blog Life’s a Picnic recently wrote about Luciano’s!  Here’s what he had to say: “We enjoyed Luciano’s, Reno. We loved the pizza fritta appetizer special and the polenta with Gorgonzola and pine nuts so much I did not even think to unholster my trusty Nikon. We ravaged the food like zoo lions at feeding time. I did however capture this beautiful berry dessert before it was devoured.  Berry Berry sexy dessert!”
