We ordered a wide variety of food to sample the menu (which looked great). The dishes looked wonderful but lacked garlic. Therefore, they lacked soul. I can only infer that the local clientele don't enjoy their food enhanced by anything other than salt? Sad and disappointing.

We really enjoyed Luca's. We had the lettuce wrap appetizer -- delicious but we should have asked for more of the yummy sauce that was dribbled on the plate! I had the lamb chops that came out perfectly cooked & seasoned. My husband had the swordfish special which he raved about and has since tried to recreate at home (twice!).... More

Delicious small plates (and some big plates too) with a lot of tempting choices. The wine list is pretty good, although by the glass is somewhat limited. They didn't have a California Chardonnay by the glass, so I had a dry Riesling, which was very good. Started with beautiful cold roasted golden and red beets with pistachios, a little bit... More

Luca's is an amazing restaurant in downtown. The menu is filled with delicious and imaginative choices. Luca himself is a pure pleasure to talk with and a great host. Waitstaff is top notch. The wine list is good, but the real value is found in the "cask" bottles. Don't miss this gem!

Luca's is a quaint café adjacent to Keene's charming town square. The cuisine is tasty but the menu seems static as all there food has a similar palate. It's great to have a top chef in town but would be great to have more variety. Great place to visit try it you'll like it.

Have visited Keene on several occasions and the meal we had at Luca's was the best we've had in the town. We started with the Greek Meze appetizer then moved on to the pasta special of the day, each of us having a different variety. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Will absolutely go back next time we are... More

I again visited this Keene on-the-square Mediterranean restaurant with three friends. The sea bass was succulent, pesto pasta delicious, and chicken tender and juicy. Complaining about the warm temperature in the entry dining room, we were effortlessly moved to the adjacent dining room. We'll be back.

Went to Luca's for our 56th wedding anniversary. Expected the usual excellent cuisine and service. It was again a wonderful dining experience as expected. We have also taken out-of-town friends for lunch to their rave reviews, especially considering the reasonable price.
