Twenty of us went for dinner. We were given a long table in the middle of the bustling restaurant, three quarters full by 7.30pm on a Thursday night. The wine list has a good selection of South African wines - makes a change to see local produce favoured these day - along with Italian and French. The menu offers a... More

If you looking for clams and muddle tomato soup or pasta this is place. Flavoring and nice spices. Restaurant furniture is ok but need to be clean more Also service was quiet and slow. Pasta fruto di mare and clams and muscle soup must have there. Ask for bread is nice no sure if is restaurant made.

Great little restaurant just off Rivonia Road offramp. Food is great, wine selection is good. When it is busy the service does suffer a little.

Best Italian food in the north, super friendly staff, great atmosphere and great wine list. Proper wood fire oven pizza, great of the whole family or business.

As a regular patron of the restaurant I was disappointed by the owners blasé attitude when my cellphone was stolen off the table on Friday the 30th of September 2016. As a result of the owners blasé attitude I will not be going back. I think more could have been done or more concern shown regardless of it being my... More

So far each time I've been I've enjoyed eating out at Luca's. The food is good and the waiters are excellent. Delicious salad!

It is a long time since my husband could enjoy a traditional Italian tripe dish ..... at last he did at Luca's! The veal with porchini, the lamb and Osso Bucco were all excellent! Luca comes to the table with a warm, energetic welcome and the waiters are friendly and professional. An excellent wine choice compliments the food! Highly recommended......... More

We were 4 in our party. We all ordered various pasta dishes. The pasta was very good and so was the service. It is on the pricey side though. The Alfredo se moer is scrumptious and highly recommended. For desert hubby had a chocolate cake that brought tears to my eyes - to die for.
