Best thin crust pizza ever!

Lucca has the best thin crust pizza ever! Manager John and Tony make sure you dining experience is pleasurable from start to finish with good service from their helpful staff. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed and we have always enjoyed our visits to Lucca.

We joined our friends for a meal and the atmosphere was great. Although they were quite busy, our service was good. The ambience of the place was great, and so was the food.

You gotta love a local landmark that has a photo of President Kennedy on the wall and a decorative tin ceiling to add to an atmosphere that screams old-school-eatery. They have thin-crust pizza that's the most distinctive in the area. Go for the Ala Baldini or the Barbershoppers special--so named because Lucca's is frequented by local barbershop groups.

Stopped in while in town and tried based on TripAdvisor review. T Houghton the Pizza, the beer and the atmosphere were top notch. The A La Baldini, was wonderful. One of the best pizzas I've had in a long while.

Really good Pasta dishes, great old 1936 location with character, friendly service, lots of locals. Salad and bread were lousy, costing a star.

Average to good pizza. I would suggest that you stick with the thin crust pizza that seemed to be the best option.

We were the only customers and had stopped in for a late lunch at the request of my cousin! The staff was so sweet to my 4 kids and very understanding that the 10 month old was starving and chatty! They made us feel like family! The baked ziti was absolutely amazing! Will definitely be back the next time we're... More

Lucca Grill is a local staple in BloNo. Around since the 1930s it is also known as the Democrat hangout in a largely Republican town - But that doesn't stop Republicans from stopping in for a great pizza or a drink at their old time bar!

This place is awesome! Cool place with lots of history and great food! The servers and owners of this place are very nice and always provide excellent service! The pizza is definitely worth the stop! They have daily specials going on and the dishes are very yummy and taste homemade. It is has a hip atmosphere and close to downtown... More
