    So happy to see a recipe from Luccioni’s. It was my family’s restaurant & my father, Reno, was the head chef. Enjoy!

      Hi there,I’m a nephew of Reno through my papa’s sister, who was married to him, and Renee is my cousin. Hi Renee,long time no see. I’m so glad to have tumbled on to the article about the Luccioni restaurant at E.40th & Euclid Ave. in Cleveland. I wae brought up in the “terrace” behind the reataurant, just down the street form where Renee her father Reno and my aunt Rebecca lived and the article brought back very fond memories of back then. Just thought I’d respond and express my gratitude for the wonderful writ up. Sincerely, Donald

    Wow!!! My great Uncle is Florindo married to my grandmother’s sister Assunta. Both of my
    grandparents worked there and my Mom spent her childhood in the kitchen and of course all
    the food for my parents wedding was cooked there. My mom’s maiden name is Milano, Caroline.
