A once great restaurant has lost its magic. The worst service I have experienced in a long time. And worse off, the usually friendly and obliging owner didn’t seem to care. A great restaurant has now become less than average.

Good! Wide offer of italian dishes. Pizza Parma crudo was good. For dessert tiramisu and classic cassata were awesome. Very nice service, easy parking, 18-23€/pax. Give it a try!

A pleasure to eat here. Great FOH and always good to see Luca. Fine breads and salads. Lovely lamb and calves liver. Nice to see polenta used throughout. Fair coffee, could have been a darker roast. Not many places better for a Sunday lunch

Description
Luca's Italian Restaurant, was established in 1994, and captures the essence of the Italian lifestyle –colourful and flavour-filled. We honour centuries old traditions essential to authentic Italian cuisine - simplicity and passion. A grand wood-burning oven which uses specialised refractory brick and mortar, designed to deliver even heat throughout the dome, built single handedly by Guido, a perfectionist Italian artisan, delivers pizzas, pastas and other dishes in an authentic manner, that is certain to delight the gods! Slow-food specialities, including rabbit casserole served with polenta and the most unusual lamb, pot-roasted in coffee and apricots (Mamma Alma's recipe!), will have you coming back for more. Our comprehensive menu promises you the ultimate Italian food experience! The extensive menu goes hand-in-hand with a collection of carefully selected fine South African and Italian wines to complement your choice of meal.
