We ate dinner at Luca. We started with glasses of prosecco. For dinner, we ordered a bottle of Petrussa Sauvignon to share. We both had the baby lettuces salad which were excellent. Also served were excellent breadsticks, crisp and cheesy. Entrees were the fusilli with mushrooms and the pork saltimbocca. I loved the fusilli. The pork was less successful, but... More

Cool little restaurant with a cool bar and a very nice rustic setting. Did the tasting menu which I believe consisted of 8 or 9 courses. Awesome creative tasty fare that will make you return. Service was a little off but overall it was very interesting and nice to taste so many different things.

The food was awesome. I had papardelle bolognese, and it was just outstanding. We also had a burrata appetizer, again, simply outstanding. Luca has an extensive wine list and the servers are attentive and take good care of you. For us, this is a special occasion restaurant, and we have felt well taken care of everytime we went there. Enjoy.

Recommended by our B&B for Italian food. Checked it out on line and then called. It's not your typical cheap Italian restaurant. No lasagna on the menu, but they do have a great pasta Bolognese. Each item is individually priced, appetizer, salad, pasta, and dessert. I highly recommend the asparagus salad and the black tortellini. The portions are small, so... More

Storefront ambiance with a bar and view into the kitchen. Reasonably priced Italian menu with some truly great house-made burrata; appetizer or full size portions of tasty pastas--loved the PIemontese classic agnolotti del plin and the carbonara. Solid wine list with reasonable choices. Excellent service.

We had a very nice evening at Luca. Ambiance delightful, extensive Italian wine list (very useful sommelier advice), and gracious, attentive service. We shared Sicilian calamari, tangy and simmered in its tomato, caper broth - not deep fat fried. Also shared a baby lettuce salad with layers of taste, yet lightly dressed. My wife enjoyed her divers scallops - rich.... More

Ate here as part of a large group. We chose off a menu that was selected for us so choices were less than the normal menu. All the food was excellently prepared and presented. I took the dessert to go as the food was rich and filling. Silverware changed with every course - quite unusual.

I live in Denver and have been going to Luca d'Italia for years. It was excellent when it first opened, then slipped a bit, and is now working its way back up. I had visitors from New York City, and I wanted to show off one of Denver's better restaurants. As always, the menu was creative. The food was prepared... More

After attending an art exhibit, we intended to go to a nearby restaurant only to find it full. Someone there suggested Luca's down the block which did have open tables. We did not order any of their main courses but did have appetizer, salads, and pasta dishes. All were good but hard to really comment on their food with only... More
