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

Always full and for good reason. The atmosphere is buzzing and it feeds off the hearty food that is served! That is why people like coming here. We had a table of 5 adults and one child. We were seated out side and it was great for people watching as the crowds streamed in. There was a safe play area... More

You cannot dislike anything about Luca's other than you have to remember to book. Good food and atmosphere.

Visited the place with my entire family including my 2 year old nephew and the staff were really accommodating. Food was excellent as always. chicken pasta is always a winner here. Tiramisu is about the closest I have tasted to the ones I had in Italy. Great Italian restaurant

For a quick bite to a long leisurely lunch or dinner - Luca's is the place to be! Luca's pizza, selection of CRAFT beer and specially selected winelist always makes you feel as if you are in food heaven! He is always ready to smile and greet you by name and this should definitely be considered as one of the... More
