Description: A refreshing departure from the ordinary; Luca’s Ristorante Flemington is inventive and original, all-the-while authentic regional Italian gastronomy. It’s Chef Luca DiMeglio’s personification of the soul of Ischia (Italy’s famous island wonderland, located off the coast of Naples) right here in the heart of suburban Flemington. Maintaining with the philosophies that make Italian food such a delight, Chef Luca believes in crafting every element of the dish by hand. Against the beautiful backdrop that is Luca’s dining room, you will begin your dining experience with a basket of assorted artisan breads, followed by one of his homemade pastas, famous hand-cut gnocchi (nonna’s original recipe), or from a selection of one of the evening’s enchanting specials. The final touch; one of Chef Luca’s select desserts accompanied by the perfect cup of locally micro-roasted espresso or cappuccino. Benvenuti e Buon Appetito!

Visited Luca's for the fist time and would definitely return. Nice atmosphere and the night we were there it was very quiet. The portions are large so be prepared to take left-overs home. Started with the sundried figs wrapped in prosciutto and they were outstanding. Had the Pasta Campanella for my entree. Excellent! Just the right amount of heat from... More

We had heard good things about this restaurant and we were pleased with our experience. The ambiance is nice and feels like you are in Italy. We'd didn't mind the chairs! The service was a bit slow with only 2 servers but at the same time it gave us the opportunity to catch up and have a relaxing evening. The... More

My wife and I have been to Luca's quite a few times. The restaurant is nicely furnished and has the decor and ambiance of being in Italy. My only complaint is with the chairs, which are very straight and uncomfortable. However, the food is worth the discomfort. There are always specials and the food has always been very well prepared... More

The food and atmosphere at Luca's is wonderful, and it does feel much like being in an Italian ristorante. The one thing that keeps me from coming back (and several others as well), is that the chairs are about the most uncomfortable in which I have ever sat. I wish they would get some new chairs so I can return... More

Ordered the Amatriciana appetizer with Luca's brand new "spongy" fresh made pasta for lunch. It was just the right size portion with a couple of home baked rolls. I'll definitely bring my wife and grandchildren back for dinner this weekend. JohnVK

That is to say, a great restaurant in a non descript strip mall. We have been coming to this BYOB for years and we are never dissappointed. Very nice atmosphere, great service, great menu, great presentation. The chef/owner, can't do enough for you. Try the homemade lemonchello after dinner.

I was visiting my parents last Saturday night, and they had decided to bring to this restaurant called Lucas. When we pulled up I was a little put off, do to the fact it was in a shopping center. However my parents know good food so I trusted them. When we walked in I was much more confident it is... More

I have been back to Luca's twice in the past month, both meals were excellent. The one that left a lasting impression on me was a lunch Panini. It was tastefully presented with fresh greens on the side. Grilled chicken, sundried tomatoes, fresh mozz and fresh bread - delicious. Can't wait to continue exploring this menu...
