You could say our story began in a small town outside Naples, Italy. That’s where our mother, Lina, operated a trattoria and where we would learn the valuable skills we would later put to use in our Italian restaurants. Most importantly, we learned to use only the finest and freshest ingredients straight from the heart of Italy.

Authentic Italian family recipes since 1971 When the Centofanti family left Italy for America in 1971, we brought wih us a tradition of hard work, a passion for excellence and—just as importantly—Nonna Lina’s authentic Italian recipes. These priceless original recipes are still on our menus today.

The Luciano’s experience—inspired by Nonna Lina & Nonno Salvatore From our complimentary bruscetta to our comfortable
family atmosphere, you can see the influence of our loving parents. It was our late father, Sal, who taught us attention to details [...]

The Best Pizza in San Antonio

 By Nuri G. March 16, 2010 at Yelp.com

Apparently, the vegetarian pizza can change for “whatever looks good” at the market. You don’t always go to an establishment just for the food — you sometimes go for the characters.  The owner is definitely one of these characters…. friendly, inventive, genuine, and real.    This is the kind of establishment that I [...]
