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.

What a delicious dinner experience we had last night. The men ordered the stuff pork chop, it was HUGE and so well prepared, it came with broccoli rabe(sauted with garlic- excellent) and tasty potatoes. The ladies had the stuffed chicken and the veal Milanese. both great choices. We shared gilled octopus and a tomato salad which were both top-notch. Unfortunately,... More

My stuffed pork chop was tasty, and my kid loved her pasta, but my wife's jumbo shrimp were underdone. It was kind of a long wait, as well. Paid too much, but the food was mostly decent.

Took wife and three young ones for a nice Italian meal while in FLL. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Our kids preferred something not on the menu and they were happy to accommodate them. I had the special which was a bone-in veal parmesan. It was excellent. The grilled octopus appetizer is awesome and the mussels were a hit... More

Reservation for four on Saturday night. We had to wait a short time but that was fine. Service very slow, other tables that were seated after us were served before us. Salads were fine. Entrees arrived about 1/2 hour following salads. One entrée seemed to not be fully cooked. Everyone in my group was disappointed with the food. We arrived... More

On A1A right near Oakland. Always passed it, but saw a Groupon and tried. Great appetizers, wife had special salad while I had grilled octopus. Both were excellent. As entree I had Veal Piccatta off the menu while wife had a special porcini risotto and both were very tasty and filling. Also had a Chianti Classico bottle of wine which... More

great little restaurant. Had a groupon and welcomed it. Chicken Parmesan and pork dinners were great. Salads perfect. Desserts delic. Used to north end Boston and this comparable to any there. If you have the day water taxi pass, walk couple blocks thru shooters waterfront and take the night boat ... Picks up around 9pm

This is a small restaurant. We did not have a reservation so we sat up at the bar. The service was excellent. The staff definitely know how to treat everyone perfectly. This was a very memorable restaurant. The food was excellent. The wine was good. The desert was fantastic. We enjoyed the evening completely.

We decided to buy a half priced Groupon after reading such good reviews. You can park in front of the post office in the shopping center parking lot just north of the restaurant. If you park in front of any other "closed"business, you could get towed. Son and I ordered the chicken parm, which was a generous portion and very... More

I don't claim to be an expert on Italian cuisine, but I've had enough of it to know my way around a menu...and to determine what's good, what's average, what's terrible...and what's excellent. Lucca's is EXCELLENT. We were there on a very busy night and while the service was a bit slow, we were well tended to. There wasn't a... More
