My friend and I were there on a Thursday evening and it is happy hour all night. Amazing wine list, and food. The small plates with a salad were plenty. We loved it

My friend Catherine took me after seeing a movie. The huge number of mussels were not in a wine sauce but came with salted clarified butter and very nice bread. It is a starter but it was plenty for a whole meal and reasonable priced. I would definitely go back.

We had dinner for twelve before the Sacramento Choral Society's Christmas concert. Even though the restaurant was crowded with concert goers, the service and the food were excellent, The linguine with prawns was a popular dish at our table and everyone loved it. Heard no complaints about the number of prawns or the size of the prawns, but I did... More

We went birding in the Sacramento area and decided to spend the night in Sacto. We were fortunate to get a reservation at Lucca for dinner (some place we have dined many times). They did not disappoint and our wait person was great. We will definitely return.

We hosted a private banquet dinner at Lucca. The service, food and attention from the staff was excellent. The banquet menus offer a nice variety of items to choose from. The Zucchini Chips were an excellent starter to share and the Pan Roasted Salmon and Short Ribs were a hit.

We had three members of our little group sharing a birthday celebration so after discussing locations, chose Lucca and we were right!! We went for lunch, sat by the fireplace and had a leisurely 2 hour lunch. We never felt rushed, the food was excellent and the staff pleasant and efficient.

This is my 2nd visit in 3 years and I came back because the first visit was so great. This past visit was even better. The atmosphere is open dining with brick walls and a nice outdoor patio that is covered and heated if need be. Tonight was a cold rainy evening, but the patio was great. The fireplace adds... More

We had a very pleasant lunch at Lucca one Saturday. The service was attentive and relatively quick. The ambiance and decor was very inviting -- like an intimately lit Tuscan farmhouse. Food was excellent, particularly the truffle fries and the pappardelle with sausage.

I had the opportunity to eat and enjoy the restaurant during a wedding reception. Overall, the service, ambiance, and food were great! The manager was very warm and polite. He personally ensured that the guests were satisfied during the entire event. This was a wonderful venue for a "New Beginning."
