“Wonderful Experience Every Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2009

My husband and I live in Helena and just absolutely love Luccas. A previous review stated that Helena is a "cowtown" and that Helenans don't have any idea how to judge a restaurant. (Typical California attitude) Well, we're not a cow town and we do have a very good idea of which restaurants are good and which are not. We have many good restaurants here - but Lucca's stands above most of them for the quality of food it serves and the excellent service. It has never failed to please us and our friends. Their new location is just great - a lot more seating space and an enjoyable atmosphere! You can't go wrong here.

“Fantastic!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2009

Great service,food, wine, atmosphere! We loved it. The service staff is remarkable ( not easy to find in Helena) and all very knowledgable. The food, to die for! I had a grilled portabello mushroom and veggie dish (a wonderful vegitarian option) my friend had a NY steak with an amazing shallot butter. The salad was also something to remark upon. It was served family style tossed in a homeade vinagarette. Yum! They also now have a full bar so we were treated to a tasty cocktail before dinner. Our waitress even wrote down the name and vintage of our wine and told us where we could purchase it locally. All in all i was totally impressed and i surely will be back very soon!

“Way overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2009

I would rank this place about 6th in the city of Helena. We had a really grumpy unattentive waitress and the food was pretty average. Overall it was a very ho-hum dining experience. The highlight was the gentleman who seated us and suggested wines.

“Big disappointment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2009

The food was no way comparable to On Broadway. The service was absolutely terrible. The environment was average. The prices were way to high for the quality of food. Bang for the buck was terrible

“Excellent in the Carriage House, Excellent Downtown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2009

My experience at Lucca's both, when it was in it's old location in the Carriage House and now, in Downtown Walking Mall has been worth every penny.
The food is wonderful, well presented and amazingly fresh. While they have fewer items on their menu than AppleBees, their very accommodating and you can view their menu before you go. The menu changes throughout the season- but the excellence stays the same.
I ate there this evening and from the appetizer to the entree to the dessert- everything was perfect.
By the way, I had water and it was always full, even after the bill came. Highly recommended by this local.
