We ate here twice when we stayed in Sacramento. Varied menu, clean restaurant, reasonably price and efficient and friendly staff. Nice outside seating area

Initially, the reception was not good. We had reservations (didn't really need them) but the hostess was rude and had a real attitude (I'd use the "B" word to describe her demeanor, but TripAdvisor censored it). But once we got to the table, that all changed (we sat at a table in the bar area so we could see the... More

My friends and I celebrated our birthdays here and now I am trying to think of another reason to celebrate so I can go back. I guess I could just go for dinner, but with such excellent food and service, it seems like the kind of place you reserve for special occasions. The service was fantastic...our server was so helpful... More

I had the pleasure of dining at Lucca's restaurant last night with a large group. I needed a menu item that was both gluten and dairy free. Lucca's went above and beyond to make me feel a part of the group. Even without asking, they left the cheese off my salad and brought me a sorbet for dessert. What a... More

The meals were excellent (zuccini chips snack-wow) but my review is of the level of professional service. I've dined on four continents and these folks are up there with the Swiss!

I was more impressed with Lucca's outdoor patio than their lunch men; it was not as diverse and abundant as I had hoped. The chicken sandwich was good. It was difficult to eat without using utensils as the bread was unable to withstand the mayo and Cole slaw. Overall, a good choice for a downtown lunch.

A colleague of mine and I decided to go to Lucca for dinner after a long day at work in Sacramento, CA. After we each ordered a glass of red wine, my friend ordered the Summer Corn and White Bean Soup followed by the Mushroom Pappardelle pasta for his entrée. I ordered the Lucca House Chop Salad and the Lucca... More

Our party of eight walked four blocks to Lucca after attending a Sunday matinee at the Music Circus. Good thing we had made reservations as every table -- inside and outside -- was filled by 6 o'clock. The "California Mediterranean" menu provides an extensive choice of Italian entrees. Each of us ordered a different entree and we all were pleased... More

the service in the restaurant was some of the best in my travels. The food was just OK...i had ordered gnocchi...pretty sure gnocchi wasn't homemade, my wife ordered stuffed peppers...which were good....fried zucchini to start was flavorless and really lacked presentation. Dessert was great with a salted toffee dessert

Went with three work colleagues and absolutely loved it. I had their ricotta gnocchi (ie not potato) which was very light and fluffy and an interesting mix of gnocchi and pasta texture. The ribs that two of my friends had were amazing. As was the Chicken Saltimbocca. No complaints. All great!
