Quiet Sunday evening.

Here we are again in Luca's for the last evening meal, numbers are now 16, so still a big party to be catered for. We all arrived on time , which is always a bonus, and were seated quickly. Drinks order was taken efficiently and lots of water was dispensed quickly in the interim. Service of... read more

Finally a Resturant that recognises people who are gluten free still love good Italian food! Lucas menu is excellent, most options can made gluten free and they offer half portions for children which meant my daughter had the pick of the pasta list! Very friendly and welcoming, nothing too much trouble. Would definitely return.

My partner and I took my parents for a meal here based on the gluten free menu that was on their website (as my parents both require gluten free food). The choices were best I have seen and the food was excellent. My dad had a pasta dish where you couldn't tell between the normal pasta and GF pasta. The... More

Great service, the waiting staff were very attentive even thought the restaurant was busy as it was a bank holiday weekend. The food was lovely and it was good value. Would highly recommend!

Lovely food and great service. There are a few items on the menu that are gluten free. For me the highlight was the sticky toffee pudding. That is worth a visit alone!

Food good. Lucas was going to charge nearly£3 for cutting our own bought cake, i.e. Nearly £30, for a cake they did not make. We did have their deserts ! We won't be rushing back.

I,m happy you enjoyed the food I prepared. With regard to your comment about the cake, firstly when you booked you made no mention that you wanted to bring a cake, had you done so I would have offered to make a cake, as this what we do, that is how, partly, we make our money, and it would have...

Was very quiet as it's off season, but the kind of place you want to see busy as can see what this place could be. Think the prices are a little pricey for what you actually get, and food is pretty average, however staff were very friendly. Could all do with a bit of a deep clean around the edges.... More

My Wife and I went for our Wedding Anniversary Meal at Luca's las week while we were on holiday in Keswick. We had originally booked for the Thursday 12th (Our actual anniversary) but had to contact them to re-arrange for the following night. I did this through the owner and he could not have been more helpful. We arrived to... More

My wife and I went here for a NYE treat and we weren't disappointed. Each of the courses were superb and the friendliness of the staff added to the special atmosphere of the evening. Being NYE this was not an inexpensive meal but the quality of the food and the excellent atmosphere made this an speical occassion.
