Too big, too noisy, food good to average

Loved Luca's in the old days in Morningside and only now visited his premises in Sunninghill. Unfortunately as with so many venues in JHB it overlooks a car park. Met friends we had not seen in a year but couldn't catch up because the restaurant is very noisy (we were inside) It is probably fine... read more

I think that Luca's Italian is by far one of the best Italian restaurants because they use fresh produce which gives the food a completely different Italian taste.

We love to go on a Sunday early evening to listen to the wonderful band play laid-back music while we eat Pizza! Service and food very good. Its in a secure location as well.

Went with colleagues on a friday evening, even though the restaurant was busy the service was fast efficient and the food even better. I have already started recommending Luca's to friends as it was one of the best restaurants I have been to.

If this restaurant was closer to my area I would be seriously obese. We've taken friends and family to this restaurant and everyone agrees. Best Pizza in town.

Delicious, great value Italian cuisine....never disappoints! I ordered the arrabiatta pasta with extra prawns ...and it was delicious. Wine list is excellent and not too expensive. Service is great and the atmosphere is perfect for a get together with friends.

I have been going to this restaurant for about 18 years and they still serve the best food in JHB. Their notoriously good salad is divine so are their pastas, pizzas and their coffee lamb is the best I have ever had. When you go to Lucas, they make you feel like family.

When last visiting this restaurant I was hoping that I wouldn't fall sick. Unfortunately this happened again. I don't know what goes on here with hygiene in kitchen as something must have been contaminated. Furthermore, I was not the only person that was ill. I believe that they use a lot of organic produce which in my mind makes no... More
