We finally tried Lucca after a couple of years of recommendations from friends and co-workers. We're sorry it took so long because we'll definitely be back!
The service was professional and attentive. In fact, I think this might be the most professional wait staff we've seen in Fort Lauderdale. They are helpful and attentive without being obsequious or intrusive. When the wine we ordered was unavailable, the waiter knowledgeably recommended a different option at the same price, which we loved. It was a very nice wine.
We both had arugula salad and it was fresh, with just the right amount of dressing. I had the fettucine Bolognese. The sauce was delicious and the pasta was cooked to perfection. My husband had the penne puttanesca and enjoyed it very much.
The only thing I might add is that since this is Fort Lauderdale beach, the parking can be a bit hairy. If you have the option of walking, riding a B-cycle, or taking public transit, I'd recommend that.
Overall, this was a very good experience and we'll be back.
