Description: We were in town for business and staying near the Capitol. We sought advice from the concierge at our hotel for a recommendation for a business dinner and she wholeheartedly recommended Lucca’s. The restaurant has an inviting exterior entrance. Even though it was crowded, it did not give the impression of being so. It was a cold and rainy... More

Very nice venue when you enter, but wide open spaces become a bit cold. Great service, and for that reason 3 of 5. Wine list lacking--too short and too little selection. Staff could not recognize a corked bottle, but at least didn't charge. "Crispy Duck Confit" not only not crispy, but not confit. Hard to cut from bone. Will not... More

I was looking for someplace new to try downtown, and found Lucca recommended on yelp. Our server was charming and knowledgeable, even asked if we needed to be out by a certain time for the show and made a few recommendations. The special salad with spinach, radichio, toasted almonds, and goat cheese was excellent as was my chicken picatta. My... More

Once again I suggested Lucca restaurant when dining with several acquintances. All eleven people enjoyed the food and ambiance. Everyone enjoyed the Zucchini Chips, fried Brussell Sprouts, Pappardelle, and Linguine with Prawns.

First have to say that our Server Matt was very good and the atmosphere is not bad. We started with the fried calamari fritter, unfortunately it was overcooked and on the greasy side. Husband had the sausage papperdelle pasta, flavorful, but the pasta was over cooked and sauced. I had the pork chop, great size and sear, but under cooked.... More

Lucca is one of my favorite restaurants in Sacramento. They accommodate gf and vegetarian very well. They have a gf menu and their staff is pretty knowledgable on dietary restrictions.

After an afternoon movie we spent New Year's Eve at Lucca's where we have eaten many times in the past. My wife had a mixed salad and Tagliatelle pasta with a lobster sauce and it was excellent. I had the Walnut Beet salad and the Scallops. My Scallops were excellent but they were served with a very hot side sauce... More

I made a reservation for 8 of us the night before the CIM marathon. The service was great and the food was good. It was easy walking distance from the Grande Sheraton.

I didn't knew the restaurant, one of my friends decided to go there because of a family recommendation, so I wasn't expecting anything. In my opinion the best italian in the city, the service is excellent and the prices make this place a must. Loved the fireplace.
