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

While researching restaurants for my trip to Denver, I came upon this restaurant. The owner was nominated for a James Beard Award for Outstanding Restaurateur. I knew that Luca was the place for me. Our dining experience at Luca was fantastic. Delicious food (every course), perfect service, and a great atmosphere - it doesn't get any better than this. I... More

Don't turn up expecting spaghetti bolognese, this is an Italian restaurant with a small menu of very different take on Italian food, such as wild boar, trout etc.

Our GNO group made a reservation for Restaurant Week. The ambience was very nice, plenty of spaces between tables and an excellent wait staff. We ordered one special and then shared other items on the menu. The pasta was very good, portions were small; just enough for a bite each. We enjoyed the evening and the tastes of very well... More

We went here for restaurant week and it's definitely one of Denver's finer and more expensive restaurants. It was a great pick, but the antipasti and desserts were nothing to write home about and at this price point borderline disappointing. Secondi was very nice but at regular price I am not sure I would have felt it was worth it.... More

Just finishing a delicious dinner at Luca d'Italia. Dining alone, I sat at the bar. Service was excellent. And, while Luca was fairly busy on a Wednesday night, the noise in the restaurant was only moderate, at the loudest, nice. Small, but tasty selection of wines by the glass. It would be nice if they added a few more Italians,... More
