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 recently dined at Lucca fire a birthday dinner, group of 10. After waiting over 15 minutes,I managed to get the attention of our server to open or bottles of wine, which by the way each couple was charged $15 a bottle. (Except the birthday girl, which was fine). It took a very long time to put in or appetizer... More

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

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
