My Favourite

My husband and I have gone here time and time again. It is a little pricey for those on a tight budget but prices are reasonable for this area and the food is spot on every time. For me this is the best Italian in Cumbria.

We went to Luca's restaurant to celebrate our 23rd wedding anniversary and eldest son's 19th birthday. In our experience it is very rare that four people order four different choices and each meal is superb and every meal was just that, absolutely superb!!!!! It's a restaurant that even in the winter is well worth the short walk. We left Luca's... More

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.

I,m sorry we were closed when you wanted to dine with us, but we are closed in November and January, not through choice but I,m sure as you can appreciate Keswick is a seasonal town and as such it would be uneconomic to open out of season when there less visitors about, as you seem to be. I hope we... 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

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
