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.

Went to this restaurant on Sat 30th Aug on the recommendation of two guests entering Lucca. We had not booked however we were made very welcome and enjoyed our meal and wine. Service and food very good.

My wife and I have been to this small, romantic Italian restaurant over 10 times. We've enjoyed every meal. Be sure to look at blackboard specials as they are different and delicious. Friendly and efficient service. Food is excellent. Wine selection is very good. My favorite is the veal chop parmigiana. If you don't see it on the menu, the... More

Ate here with my family--all italians about a year and half ago. Will never go back. Food subpar, one plate had a dead fly in it! This is not authentic Italian cuisine perhaps ok for people who are not Italian and local, we as regular tourists to the area and we were NOT served well. In my book, everyone is... More

Cute small restaurant on A1A. My family lives about 10 minutes from there and I've never noticed the restaurant before because it is almost hidden between two other stores. Received a groupon offer so we decided to try it. Made a reservation ahead of time for Saturday night and we were immediately seated. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly.... More

Lucca always delivers....on quality service and price. The homemade focaccia is terrific. My husband loves the linguini and clams. I usually order half order of one of the pasta dishes and it's plenty for a meal. When they have Bronzino on the menu as a special I do go for that. Its just wonderful.

A long walk. About 3 miles from Westin, but we are walkers. Great lasagne. Homemade pasta. Great meatballs. Check Groupon for a discount.

We consider ourselves year round regulars and have dined here many times over the years. Perhaps because we are regulars we always receive a high quality of service. We have never been disappointed with anything we have ordered, the food is always served fresh and at the temperature that it was meant to be served at. Although it is a... More

This place may be on the small side and almost hidden by adjacent buildings, but it quickly proved that size isn't everything! The "Little Italy" atmosphere and outstanding food, puts this restaurant in the "must check out category "! The sausage and beans appetizer was the perfect flavorful start to a meal that spelled perfection all the way through. The... More
