Good food, great ambiance

Small restaurant, great Italian food. They have a separate vegan/vegetarian menu and a separate gluten-free menu. I had the vegan linguine marinara, and my coworkers split zucchini chips and pasta arribatta. Mine was tasty, but not overly remarkable. The marinara did taste fresh, but didn't stand... read more

We had a lovely early evening dinner at Lucca before a performance at Music Circus. The service was absolutely excellent; the place was fairly crowded for such an early seating, and our waiter hinted that we should order early to ensure we made it to the theater on time. Food was excellent, good wine list. The location in Midtown is... More

We go the Broadway season twice a season. They carry Zins from Lodi that we enjoy. We have always gotten to eat at a table of our choice. The outdoor patio has great feeling in the autumn, it is very fresh and bright.

I have been here many times - almost every time I stay over in Sacramento on business. Excellent food and V good service. Close to capital, hotels, clubs. The last visit the management accommodated a very large group, provided super service and along with the excellent food it was one more experience to write home about.

Like a quick trip to Lucca, Italy (one of my favorite places!) for lunch. My best friend and I dined on the patio just last week for a birthday lunch. The service was warm and friendly and the salads were fresh and delicious. I definitely recommend the patio seating for an authentic Italian experience in Sacramento.

I have dined here several times in the past and there is still not quite something that feels good about this restaurant. I know it's a feeling, food is great, service ok, but ownership is off.

From the minute I mentioned Peanut & Tree-nut allergies, Sydney (hostess) explained how the restaurant cares for individuals with food allergies. She made sure our group reservation had a note attached to inform our server of our needs. When we arrived, it was no surprise to our waitress that one member of our group had severe food allergies. She ensured... More

You can always depend upon Lucca to provide good food at a fair price in a pleasant setting. Lucca is very effective at serving large parties. Lucca's patio even on a hot summer day is pleasant.

We started out meal by sharing appetizers. Personally I loved the pizzetta, which was a thin crust mini pizza with pear and pancetta (salty, sweet and crunchy!). We also enjoyed the fried calamari, served with hot sauce on the side and olives. My main was the prawn pasta, but I substituted the linguini for the homemade parpardelle. It was absolutely... More
