Held a business dinner here with some people who joined our company though an acquisition The menu options were good, the food was fresh and interesting. I wish they offered more drink options. Also the tables were packed closely together and it felt claustrophobic. I kept bumping chairs with the people behind me. They were a noisy group who talked... More

We had dinner last night and I was not impressed. Food and service are just ok for the price they charge. First, the waiter warns you, the dishes might not all come together because they are cooked one at a time. I ordered the scampi flat noodle dish $17.50. I asked if they can substitute the noodles for linguinis (... More

We liked the food. service was good and the outdoor patio is nice -- too bad it is right on the parking lot access road. But all things considered, it is a good place to go.

After some time away I decided to give Lucca another chance, and they failed. Again. Given the scarcity of decent restaurants in Irvine that are not a chain I truly would like Lucca to succeed but they continue to fall far short both in their food and service. The food is just OK and sometimes teetering into poor, and the... More

A friend described Lucca as a Santa Monica restaurant in Irvine. Interesting, changing menus, well-sized (not humungous) portions, top notch wine list for those who care. Been there for lunch and dinner. They only do brunches on weekends, now.

A co-worker and I came here for a lunch recently; first time in over a year. We were seated very quickly, and got one of the few small tables left, which was in a closely-spaced part of the interior. Lucca is very popular, so it fills up fast … and gets noisy. Next time, I’m going to get a seat... More

Since I was on a business trip, I splurged. I dined alone, had a half glass of italian wine,a single cheese sampler, two tapas plates and dessert....that came to over $40. A little higher than I would like if I had been paying. Of all the items, I think the wine and the dessert were overpriced. I sat on the... More

A busy but comfortable restaurant with excellent service, food and ambiance. The beer and wine selection was good and the seating was spacious even though lots of servers were coming and going. A favorite for our Irvine friends and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

Wednesday evening during OC Restaurant Week. Not crowded, sat in the glass enclosed patio area with overhead heaters. Very pleasant and quiet, great place to actually have a conversation. Salads were fresh with walnuts and cheese, not overly dressed. Nice wine selection with a range of prices and some different selections. Wife had the Land and Sea, a small combination... More
