“Wonderful Dinner at Lucca's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2010

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner at Lucca's last night. We were there a year ago in their old location and enjoyed it so much we returned last night to celebrate a birthday. We had high expectations and they were exceeded!

Everything was top notch. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive. I was hesitating over a wine selection that would go well with both of our dinners. Our waitress had a strong recommendation but just to be sure she asked their sommelier to come over to our table provide additional advice. He agreed with her recommendation and it turned out to be the best Pinot Noir I think I've ever had.

Both of our dinners were excellent. My wife had their pasta special and I had a pan seared tuna. Both were perfectly prepared, beautifully presented and offered wonderful combinations of flavors and textures.

We also enjoyed the warmth of the ambience at their new location on Last Chance Gulch. Earth toned tan colors and wood trim and an open kitchen provided the perfect setting for a memorable dinner. Lucca's has become one of our top, favorite restaurants in Montana.

“Hands down the best restaurant in Helena!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2010

We have never had anything but a wonderful experience at this restaurant. There is NOTHING in Helena that can touch the food, service, or wine list. The combination is impressive. The staff is well trained and attentive, and the atmosphere is always pleasant. You can get a lot of really bad food in Helena for the same price as a lovely evening at Lucca's.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2009

Great food and great atmosphere. When they get seafood in, it is fresh and worth ordering. They have a great wine selection and fabulous desserts as well.

“Great meal with attentive service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2009

Lucca's provides a great meal, attentive service and a good wine list. Their new location on the Last Chance Gulch walking mall has a nice atmosphere and lots more room than the old house. Can't fault anything about my experience there.

“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.
