I've been going to Lucca as my carboloading dinner before California International Marathon and service has been excellent for the last 4 years. Will definitely recommend it

Made a reservation for 11.45 am via open table .. actually arrived at 11.15 ( plane arrived early!) and was graciously accommodated with some zucchini chips and beverages. Covered patio seating is lovely with working fire place. Service was capable and timely and the food well presented. Since this was a luncheon the wednesday before a holiday weekend the restaurant...

Another very nice experience at Lucca Restaurant. The food is always (my experience) good, the staff are very friendly and helpful and it is one of the restaurants locally that allows for reasonable conversation. (Too many restaurants are so noisy that it is difficult.)

We ate at Lucca after not being able to get into another restaurant that we like. The food was okay. Not anything out of the ordinary. After we ordered the waiter brought a small chunk of bread over. It was 4 pieces. As if there was a shortage of bread. The farrow salad was delicious. Other people at our table... More

Nice Italian restaurant near the conventions center and Midtown. Has a great Bar, and a nice patio area (covered and good in most weather situations). Meals are very good but not great. I had the chicken saltimbocca and frankly it was not good at all. Some of the other dishes were very good). Overall nice restaurant, nice setting, fair prices... More

We recently attended a wedding reception here and they did a terrific job! Had salmon - it was excellent! Other members of our party also said the food and service was great! Would be happy to return here anytime.

I read reviews and decided to give it a try. We were just pleased with the food. However, eating on their patio made the experience more pleasant. I will be back.

My friend and I went to Lucca based on reviews and theatre proximity. The food was decent, although my friend was shocked ordering the special was very expensive compared to the rest of the menu and not a great value. We were also disappointed that we were seated outside in a covered patio corner and when it began pouring rain... More

Went with a group for a birthday celebration. The ambience was wonderful although the waitstaff ruined our entire dinner. They got things wrong from beginning to end to as even forgetting that it was a birthday celebration. Food was average Italian and prices also average. Will not return.

What took me so long to visit this gem? It's hard to keep up with the new restaurants but Lucca has been around for a while. My loss, for not coming here sooner. I visited on a Friday night with three friends. The service was friendly and facile; the ambiance was warm; and the food amazing. It's not loud and... More
