Ristorante Lucano in Rochester NY?

I grew up in Rochester but my visits now to see my folks are fewer and farther between than they should be. My memory is too dated to be reliable. That said, I've done some research on the board (and elsewhere) and have provisionally settled on Ristorante Lucano for my trip home in March. Price is not an issue. What I'd like is something at the higher end in quality and dining experience. My folks (Dad is 87 and Mom is 82) are in very good shape, though a little slower and little harder of hearing than they used to be. That said, I would be open to other options though (1) they have been to Rooney's so many times that that's not on the table and (2) I'm not overly enamored of the dinner menu at Max's at the Eastman. The Chophouse Menu is more promising but Mom's not a huge meat eater and the other choices are, logically, minimal. I was looking for something nice that I thought they'd enjoy and I can't recall ever being at a truly good Italian restaurant with them in Rochester. (Lots of middling ones, though.) So, sentiment on the board seems generally positive for Lucano, though it's a bit dated. Can any Rochesterians (or others) tell me if I'm doing the right thing? Thanks!
