I have enjoyed every dish that I have tried at this restaurant and wine bar. I recommend it strongly. The place is usually quiet, which is a little concerning. I like my favorite restaurants to be busy enough to make money, but just barely quiet enough that I can get a table.

This was our first dining experience the night we arrived in the area and in retrospect, my favorite. It is definitely a small plate situation so take that into account as you are ordering and/or sharing dishes. Virtually everything we tried was good, especially the Moroccan spiced tuna, haricots vert "fries" and the gnocchi. Nice selection of wines, reasonably priced,... More

We have been to this lovely little wine bar/ small plates restaurant about 5 times since we discovered it while building a house/ moving to Nellysford this past year. Last night with neighbors was our latest visit. We had a great bottle of wine and shared about 8 plates (excluding dessert). Yummy stuffed peppers with goat cheese and pesto, shrimp... More

Each bite of nearly everything on the menu is more delicious than the last. Small plates at their best.

Came here for Sunday brunch with some friends and really enjoyed it! The food was excellent and the prices seemed very reasonable. Our waitress was fantastic but I felt bad for her as she was the only one for the entire place (inside and out). The place was empty when we got there but was full by time we left.... More

da Luca strikes one as a wine bar, and I guess it is. Don't pass it by if you are hungry. They have a very interesting choice of tapas small plate items. It is hard to limit to a reasonable number of small plates, the options are just so appealing. The atmosphere is comfortable, and the restaurant has been quiet... More

We just returned from a meal here - it's restaurant week and they have a special menu. Everything we had was wonderful from start to finish. The service was professional and friendly, the food was served in a way that was pleasing to the eye and it was absolutely delicious! We will definitely be back!

We spent an enjoyable evening in Da Luca, and it came as a surprise. The location is just not where you expect to find a sophisticated bar and excellent tapas menu. The restaurant is in a very new suburban housing development, which itself is incongruously stranded a bit outside the little historical cluster of buildings in Crozet VA, on the... More

We've eaten here about 6 times over the past couple years, and are never disappointed. Their food is really very good. Loved their procuttio burger the other day. Food is a little unique and great. One of our favorite places to go, either early w the kids, or later as a couple.
