I went to eat at Luca yesterday for my birthday. What a bad food at an outrageous price... People who know Italian food will not consider this Italian cusine (I am from Europe and lived in Italy for a while). Applebee's makes better pasta. Everything was overloaded with salt - from the bread and butter to my salad and my... More

M y husband took me here to celebrate my birthday this year. It is one of the better meals we have had since moving to Denver. We got seated at a quiet table and they brought us a glass of Proseco (I got a glass of ginger ale since I am 7 months pregnant) for a toast. The waiter was... More

Went last night with 3 couples. The food is sooo good - we all were feeling like we'd left Denver and were in a city known for more than great steaks. Tuna was easily best I've had in Denver. Wine choices were extensive - we had an amazing Amarone. Overall, top experience and expensive, for the usual Denver meal. Put... More

You are made to feel special and welcome by every employee in the restaurant from the moment you walk in the door. The beautiful artwork on the walls by a local artist, the low sound level, and the overall ambience make this place a place where you know you will have a great dining experience. The waitstaff is super desirous... More

Went to Luca for a family meal, and was extremely satisfied withe the entire experience. Appetizers were amazing, great pastas, and an excellent-well priced wine list , especially Italian varieties. Service was impeccable, but not overbearing , and our 7 year old was very happy with her fusili with marinara,as well as the gelato for desert. This is the best... More

I hadn't been here in a few years, I generally love all of Frank Bonnano's restaurant concepts. This is no different. The service was very attentive. I was impressed that when the waitstaff fell behind, the sommelier jumped in to help out, seating people, and filling water glasses. The house-made cured meat platter was exceptional. A beautiful assortment of salumi,... More

My husband read that this was the best Italian food in the West, so we decided to give it a try. The menu looked pretty good, and we were happy to see a four-course taster option. We were seated and given some water. It was 20 minutes before anyone came to take our order. Our waiter explained that if anyone... More

From the minute we walked in the door I knew that we were in for a fantastic evening. Gracious service, very knowledgeable staff & creative and delicious food. Our table of four thoroughly enjoyed all of our selections. I have been here a couple of times in the past, but now Luca is near the top of my list of... More

We started with the cured meat and cheese platter. It was very good and the apricot preserves on the plate was a nice addition. My partner had the meatballs to start, which she loved. She had the steak which she also enjoyed but part of it was too rare for her to get the knife through. My other fiend had... More

Went here on a Thursday night for dinner and it was great! Tables fill up quickly, but didn't feel crowded. The waitstaff was great, knowledgable and friendly. Didn't feel rushed. The table ordered the italian meat and cheese plates, a few pasta dishes, and for the main courses there was Char, Duck and Pork belly ordered. the whole part was... More
