Good tasty food

Staying nearby on business, I just wanted a tasty meal for one. I chose the Linguini de Mere and wasn't disappointed. The portion was a good size, with a generous number of baby squid, shrimp and mussels included, all cooked to perfection. The service was good on this visit.

Title says it all. Waiting for the waiter became somewhat of an annoying sport. Instead of enjoying the food and conversation with my girlfriend we we're both disappointed we didn't get half what we payed for. Marina is beautiful, but this place kind of ruined the evening.

The order arrived quickly but the dishes were expensive so we expected something special, but it was dull. The waiters were unprofessional; some of them were taking a smoking break in the non smoking area. We had to wait so long for them to take the payment we eventually left the cash and walked out.

Slow service, less than average food. We didn't get all that we ordered, appetizers and entrées at the same time, few entrées got very late.

i just feel bad about what i am going to write. located in the beautiful marina of Herzlia where the Arena mall is. the place is simply decorated but the view of the boats and the sea make up for that. the food is ok. we had a Kapreze (ok) and green salad and home bread (good). mains included salmon...

This is in no way a nice review, we honestly hated the food and want to be very honest about our experience. We strolled along the Herziliya marina in search of a dazzling restaurant, something that matched the stunning view. Lucca's menu read like a dream! Gnocchi and scampi, insalata, linguini Di mare. We ordered one linguini di mare, one... More

We came to Lucca expecting a decent family meal. We know it's not supposed to be a Michelin star restaurant just a basic pizza/pasta place. We did expect the service to be fairly quick. When we arrived we said we needed to get the kids their food quickly. They said this would be fine. We waited an hour - nothing... More

We were a group of 8 people including 3 young children. Our servers (we had three of them interchanging through lunch) did not seem to care too much for their job, or know how to do it. Simple requests (a jug of water...) were ignored, forgotten, then reluctantly fulfilled. The drinks and food took ages to arrive - while the... More

We were 3 family members and we all had bad stomach after this lunch. I can only say - don't order the salmon. We had to wait ages for the check because all the waiters constantly "hide" in the kitchen so you can't call them... the staff was unfriendly and nervous. Way too pricy for the lame quality of the...

Average food, pizza was just OK, nothing to write home about. Service was quite slow and mediocre. They did nit know how to handle initial drinks, then a food order. They really wanted all the order at once so they could bring it all together.
