This is a lovely restaurant, however lately each time I have tried to make a reservation they have been closed due to bad weather, holidays, no bookings etc. It is a real shame as Keswick does not have that many nice restaurants. I travel here on business regularly and it would be nice for this restaurant to have some consistency.

We went to Keswick in a lovely cottage for a week making sure we were there for New Year. We booked a 6 course new years eve meal at Luca's restaurant. It was one of the best meals we have had. The courses were spread out over the evening, as we had the table for the whole evening we were... More

Food was ok, not bad, not particularly memorable, just average. That said I would say it's expensive for what it is. The pancetta in the penne picante was actually bacon which was a little disappointing. Dated interior (I think same as when I last went over 8 years ago) but service was fine/friendly. Bar area is a bit cold and... More

Went here on the spur of the moment. The waitress was very helpful finding us a table then brought us the menu's, but we both forgot our glasses and in the subdued light we couldn't read the menu properly. So she kindly lent us her glasses. Now that is super service. Many thanks. Oh and the food was georgous wild... More

We dined here before a visit to the Theatre so were clock watching which meant we didn't do it justice. Next time we visit the Lakes we will definately re-visit. Nice menu, lovely food, friendly service.

Visited Luca's restaurant on Wednesday evening just on the off chance at 5.15pm to see if we could be accommodated that evening for a meal as we had not pre booked. I was greeted by Paul the owner who kindly offered us a table at 5.30pm as the rest of the night was pretty busy. I had already said we... More

My wife and I visited Keswick last weekend and came across Lucas Restaurant by accident on completing our walk around Derwent Lake. We looked at the sample menus on the board outside and peeped through the window and both looked inviting. We phoned and pre-booked (recommended) and just got in at 9pm. We were greeted by pleasant and professional staff... More

3rd time we've been, seemed more hectic this time. A few mistakes on the orders, but may just have been one of those nights. Food was ok.

We called in on spec on a Wednesday evening and got a table immediately, it surprised us how busy it was midweek. But then everything about this restaurant is excellent. The restaurant is spacious and well decorated. We started with the tuna and antipasta, which the three of us shared. The tuna was seared and was delicious. There was a... More

Hi Barbra, Thank you again for your lovely review, it's really nice and encouraging when people like yourself recognise the hard work we do, people quite often are quick to find fault, so it's really nice that you have taken the time to tell other people how much you enjoy coming here. We look forward to seeing you in the... More
