Underwhelming

Lucca was ok, but it was not what I had hoped for when eating Italian. The food was average and the wine was good, but the atmosphere was just lacking. I don't know, I just wanted more. Don't think I'll be going back. Lots of room for improvement.

I'm a big fan of hotel style buffet breakfasts and Lucca offers a fixed price buffet style breakfast with a long table full of great salads, cheeses, meats fish and even great smoked salmon and pickles, whilst on the other side there are selections of pasta dishes like lasagna and penne alfredo and a choice of eggs and amazing shakshuka....

This is not a fancy restaurant but the food is very good. Sitting right on the Marina, the view is also excellent.

We were 8, 3 adults and 5 teenagers... We all agreed... this was the last time. Only argument we had between us was if to leave a tip or not... in the end we did leave 5% which is much much more than the amateur and unpleasant waitresses deserve. Very simple and noisy environment, nothing to write home about. Service... More

We had lunch in this restaurant . We had artichokes (that was one of the reasons for going into this restaurant) and a chicken dish with mashed potatos. None of the two dishes was really excellent: the artichokes were ok, although I expected better in an Italian restaurant, while the chicken wasn't to my liking. It had a strange taste,... More

While walking along the marina we were looking for a good place to have breakfast on Saturday morning. Lucca seemed to have a considerable amount of people already at the terrace and we joined them. The menu is quite simple which is a good thing for breakfast. My wife chose the Lucca breakfast and I opted for muesli with yoghurt.... More

Although the hostess was not welcoming, all waitress were outstanding kind. Beef carpachio and artichokes as starters were wonderful. Pasta was al dente and sauces very tasty.
