Description: Our lovely South Florida Italian restaurant is set in an elegant, yet understated dining area. The aromas of freshly baked foccacia, garlic, oregano and seafood fresh from the market, waft from the kitchen where we create memorable soups, delicious seafood, chicken, pasta and veal dishes, as well as sinfully decadent desserts. Every day our chef prepares delightful specials made with only the finest ingredients and spices of the season. We are located across from the ocean on A1A in beautiful Fort Lauderdale.

We really enjoyed everything about our dinner at Lucca. The ambience was nice (and quiet enough to have a conversation), almost all the tables were filled, our waiter was knowledgeable and friendly, and the food was delicious. The focaccia bread was served with a garlic-laced olive oil that we couldn't put down. I had chicken parmesan with a side of... More

As soon we walked in Lucca,we felt welcomed, the servers were professional and knew exactly how to make us feel at home. The food and the service was exceptional,we didn't feel pressured on any way. Our starters consisted of grilled octopus and fried calamari,and our main courses were just as great!!!! Thank you for making our evening memorable. They deserve... More

To start - the food was great and the place was quaint and adorable. Once seated, we were attended to appropriately. However, when we arrived with a reservation, no one greeted us, and no one appeared to even notice that we were there. After 5 minutes, I walked to the bar and asked if someone might be able to assist.... More

Good meal. Probably some of the better italian I have had in Florida. A tad pricey but the food was worth it. The service was just ok. Food was slower to come out and we got a table right in front of the front door WITH a reservation but walk-ins got a much better table. Definitely see the difference betwen... More

We came Ft. Lauderdale to spend time with our friends. They were excited to take us to Lucca, a place they had frequented and had spent much money at. They made reservations for 6 and when we arrived they pointed us to a table for four. That was obviously not going to work. Instead of putting together the two 4... More

My family had a wonder dinner at Lucca over the holidays. Each of the four of us had an extraordinary meal with the best and most unobtrusive service. We drag my Irish husband to Italian restaurants, but he left a Lucca fan for sure. We had a variety of childen and pasta dishes and each was presented beautifully and tasted... More

Overall, the service was on point and the atmosphere was pleasant-the lasagna with veal was extremely tender and by far the best dish ordered; the chicken parm. Was good but not great; I ordered the penne alla vodka, it was insipid. I would dine here again however now having full knowledge of what to expect. Based on reviews, I have... More
