“Luca's resturant in the Barnyard Complex Achter Road Paulshof”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

We recently had a birthday party at Luca's Italian Resturant in Paulshof, Sandton. No effort was spared to accomodate our wishes on food and wine selection for our party selection. Luca himself was on hand with his friendly and attentive staff to ensure our special day went without any problems. Our party really enjoyed the special ambiance and friendly service. The party was a tremendous success and enjoyed by all who attended. We would gladly recommend Luca's to anyone be it a romantic evening meal for two, a family lunch or a large party of 20 or more. Brilliant food, brilliant service thanks Luca.

“Consistent good food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

A really great place that I have been going to for the last 4 years and the food is always consistent. Apart from their well known salad (which is amazing) their food is always good. Prices might be a little on the high side but I believe this is because they only use the best produce. I would highly recommend Luca's!

“Where the owner remembers your name”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Luca's definitely make the best tasting salads in town and COLD beer is served with awesome focaccio-perfect Sunday chill time. We are always greeted warmly regardless of how crowded. One of our favourite places under the trees.

“Good Italian Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Have been going to Luca's for years - always guaranteed of a good pasta - they serve the best penne arriabata. Their salads are good but it's Lucas special dressing that makes them good. Service can be a bit slow though - but i overlook it as the pasta is so good!

“Enjoy an italian meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

I have visited this place for a few reasons. Firstly with friends and secondly for a year-end function at work. The food was consistent both times however I do find the starters quite small. The melanzane parmigiana for example is an extremely small portion which is overpriced. The vegetarian selection is good though and the meat dishes are supposed to be good. There are better Italian places in JHB which give this place a run for its money.
