Wonderful place to sit outside

Lucca is a favorite in Benicia - with prompt service and a nice outdoor seating area, it is the perfect place to sit outside and watch people stroll down 1st St. I have eaten lunch there on a number of occassions - their chicken caesar and a glass of wine is always a winner.

Lucca's is a restaurant more for the younger crowd than senior citizens. It has a lively crowd, a flat screen TV in the dining area, and a bar in the back. The atmosphere is very casual, and if a major sports game is on the TV, it can be quite raucous. The main course dishes were pricey considering some were... More

LUCCA is my favorite reastuarant in Benicia. It's a quaint gastropub in the heart of downtown and should definitely be on your radar as a place to check out. The short rib pappardelle....you're welcome. The halibut...a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach. The pork chop....double cut and delicious. The pasta carbonara...best I've had so far. The prime... More

Seated outside for a quick round of drinks during happy hour. Enjoyed the bacon-wrapped poppers. Good selection of beer on tap and wines by the glass. Friendly clientele, and a great place to hang out on a warm evening.

Very noisy but attractive restaurant. Attractive re-claimed brick interior. Wait staff was nice and attentive but not intrusive. Food was good. Price was upscale.

The food is excellent here! We had Lamb Sliders; BLT; Fish Tacos and a pork belly sandwich. Everything was excellent! The fries are very good too! The plates/servings aren't too big and the prices are reasonable. The wait staff was excellent as well. Quick prompt service!

We were treated to a fabulous 7 course meal at Lucca's and each course was delicious!!! - the variety of courses offered us all our favorites, from halibut to duck to lamb. Surely a memorable meal and the service was "over the top" with attentiveness without smothering. Not something that is offered by this restaurant, but we would encourage the... More

Dropped in for lunch while visiting the small (but larger than expected) Bay Area town of Benicia. I had the "Vietnamese" sandwich which consisted of thinly sliced, grilled pork with a Thai-style dressing and veggies on a baguette-type roll. Very tasty, but a bit dry. My wife had the fried chicken sandwich, which was very good. Curiously, they're somewhat famous... More

Consistently good food, good atmosphere in a nice small town, Benicia. Love their fried Brussel sprouts! Great burger and really delicious salads. I have never ordered anything here I didn't like! Try the espresso martini! Yum!!!
