the ambiance was great and the food and service was terrific. We had the lamb chops and they created a special salad just for us. .

Greeted with enthusiasm, served with cheer and delighted with sumptuous food. Wild Arugula and Butternut Squash salad was divine. Server was always on the spot but not intrusive.

A family visit to a restaurant on Friday night resulted in a a complete disappointment. everything we ordered ranged from below average to poor quality: tomato soup tasted like canned one, pasta and fish were drowning in oil (not sure it was olive) and ravioli have no relationship to the ones that they cook in Italy. Poor service and helpless... More

This place serves excellent, upscale deli food. My lasagne had great flavor and my companion's (she's picky) sandwich was excellent as well. The place also has a deli for you to take home their traditional deli offerings, like cheeses, cold cuts, artisinal breads, and more. My only grouse would be their hours ... we arrived at 1:55 to a 2:00... More

The food was OK and prices were average except for the "extras". My guest ordered an ice tea, which turned out to be from a bottle and cost $5.50. I ordered bread to go with my pasta, and the four small half-slices of bread cost $1.50.

We recently returned to Lucca in Quail Hill for dinner, having been many times before. This little gem serves up an excellent variety with cheese & wine always featured. This time the food was outstanding - as always - but our waitress was surly and unhelpful to the point of rudeness and as a consequence I've removed my previously 5-star... More

With a half dozen or more visits, the food and service has always been excellent. They do a small plates thing where they bring out whatever is ready first so it can be shared. If you want all of your own dish, you have to let them know that you want a dishes served at the same time

My most recent experience at Lucca -- a quick lunch on a weekday -- wasn't as positive as some earlier visits. The menu is more limited and the choices didn't grab me. The service was inattentive. So, I probably won't return for lunch, but will probably for a future dinner.

I ate lunch at the Lucca Cafe twice in one week. The first time ever with my brother and sister and then second time with my wife. We ate on the patio both times. It starts getting crowded by 11:30, so arrive earlier if you can. The first time I tried their Chicken and Fennel Sausage Carabonara which included chicken... More

The lunch hour always appears to be very busy and loud. We chose to sit inside away from the noisy patio and really enjoyed being able to talk. The food and service were outstanding. Recommend eating a late lunch here to avoid the crowds and noise.
