Al Fresco Dining in Sacramento with an Italian Twist

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... read more

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.

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

I went for lunch again with friends, and had a great meal and wine. Always consistent, always better that average. Not quite 5 star, but only because I'm picky. I can't mention anything specific that wasn't good.

Delicious Italian Cuisine! Ate here as part of a business dinner and was very happy with the atmosphere, menu selections and quality of the food. Easily sat a group of 10 (with reservation beforehand) and brought out all food at the same time - impressive! Beware of parking, there is a pay-for-parking lot adjacent to the restaurant, and parallel parking... More

Lucca scores on all three essential of delightful dining - food, service and ambiance. We had our dinner outdoors on the patio, but enjoyed a drink inside at the bar first. Two really interesting paintings decorate the walls inside and the room has a pleasant, but not too loud, buzz. My nephews swears by the burger - which was indeed... More
