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."

We visited Lucca for our 32nd Anniversary dinner. This was our 1st time dining here and we were so very happy with the service, the food and the atmosphere. Our waiter Keith was very attentive but not over bearing. I had the Port Braised Beef Short Ribs, with roasted carrots, peas, pearl onions and mashed potatoes. They were so tender,... More

On a Friday evening, we were seated in the spacious rear dining room, away from the noisier front. Our party of 7 was particularly impressed with the fact that, even talking normally, we were all able to hear one-another. The food was universally appreciated. The house salad was huge, and excellent. Squash and tomato soup was a perfect starter. The... More
