Lubrano's serves consistently delicious Italian food in a warm, relaxed, casual environment. Although they do not have a liquor license, they have a permit to allow bring your own and there is a large wine and liquor store right next door. You can easily place your order and run next door for the wine to go with the meal. Some... More

Try the Chicken Mirtilli and you'll never read the menu again. Sometimes a wait to get in, but it's well worth it. Friendliest wait staff. The home baked bread dipped in olive oil and spices could be a dinner all by itself.

I don't think you normally find a restaurant of this quality in a strip mall located at the Jersey shore but here it is, Lubrano's! You have to try it to believe it. The food is incredible with large portions. It's a BYOB and there's a wine shop next door, WHAT! The desert's are unbelievably delicious. You can get lost... More

Stopped in on a Sunday night around 8pm. The place was packed. Sat down quickly as we were next on line. My wife and I ordered soup. She had the escarole and bean and I had the stracciatella soup. Both were excellent. I next had a shrimp dish that was very good. Shrimp were tasty and fresh. My wife had... More

Their food is prepared especially for you. It may take a while before you are served your order, but it's sooooo worth it!!! I ordered a pasta dish off the menu and they made it. I highly recommend Lubrano's. Their pizza is wonderful too!

We ordered the Calamari Appetizer. It was very tasty. I ordered Shrimp Scampi Risolto. I have never seen that Dish offered elsewhere. My Wife ordered Eggplant Rolotini. It was good, but, certainly no better that other Restaurants. The Bread and Dipping Oil served was good. Overall, it was good, but, other than the Shrimp Scampi Risotto, I'm not able to... More

Gone are the days where we had to venture into NYC to find not only good italian but really top notch REAL italian food. Under the recommendation of a co worker we tried Lubrano's for the first time. Being that it's in a strip center we weren't so sure as to what to expect but we were pleasantly blown away... More

Came here for the first time to celebrate a relative's birthday. Thank goodness we were able to make a reservation since we had 7 people. Otherwise less than 6 you can not. Very extremely busy restaurant. I would suggest on a Saturday night to go early before 5:30. Food and service were excellent. Calamari tasty. Rosemary bread placed on the... More

I would give the restaurant 5 stars but when you have reservations and you have to wait a half hour after the time the reservation was for, well that is not good. The food was very good, in particular loved the appetizer of calamari. The bread and salad was good as well. The main meal eggplant was a very large... More

Went here on a Sunday night, a few minute wait...no big deal. The place is busy...bustling....must be really good. Ordered the braciola & meatball with angel hair. The super nice waitress said it was a very popular choice. My friend ordered a Bolognase pasta dish with a cream sauce. Delicious bread....nice wait staff... Food comes out 2 enormous portions of...
