Great Italian restaurant in downtown with a parking convenient location. Atmosphere is lovely here especially if you get patio seating. Food has great flavors, service is professional but not warm ( I felt that with my waitress). Wide selection of entrees to choose from, we liked Cioppino and spicy penne but didnt much like the bread here. I ordered a... More

We have dined at Lucca a couple times and enjoy it tremendously. My favorite menu item is the polenta, this time I paired it with a salad and it made the perfect summer meal. The cocktails are great, too!

We had not been to Lucca in months. It was still very good - the wait staff was very attentive, friendly and quick - which is very appreciated at a business lunch. Both my client and I enjoyed our food. We both decided we needed to come back soon.

We have not been to Lucca's in years. An over sight on our part. We went for lunch and remembered why we love it. The food, service, atmosphere it has it all. Cannot believe it took us so many years to remember how great this place is.

The Lucca is a downtown Sacramento favorite. We started with the fried calamari, seasoned with sweet pepper, fennel, black olives, and spicy harissa sauce. We were hungry so we added the baked parmesan and ricotta salata flatbread which was layered with smoky chickpea hummus, olive tapenade, and a lightly spicy piquillo pepper romesco. My main dish was the port braised... More

Lucca's is so pleasant and a restaurant that you can actually enjoy a good meal and conversation. Food is creative with seasonal touches that always surprise. Peach and mango salsa was delicious and refreshing! Staff is attentive, efficient and very friendly! Lunch, dinner, snack or drinks--Lucca's is the place!

This is a neighborhood favorite - great for before the theater meals, business and personal dinners. I have been here a number of times and have never been disappointed. When my guests and I leave we always say, "we'll be back."

This is a great happy hour stop for both good and drink. They have a great drink and food menu. The gnocchi were melt in your mouth perfection. The chop salad was good with a good vinaigrette. The mussels swam in a delectable broth for which we asked for some bread so we could fully enjoy it all. I had... More

Best restaurant location close to downtown hotels and before going to Music Circus or other events because the friendly staff knows how to get you seated, fed to your satisfaction and out before your event begins. Most of the beef comes from cows raised on their ranch and is always tender and delicious. Pasta dishes are great and the fried... More

The wife had reviewed this place, LUCCA and I reserved us a table. Arrived at 6:00pm and was immediately sat. I would recommend making reservations prior to showing up! The bar and tables were filled with people because their happy hour started at 3:00pm until close. We looked over the menu and ordered. I ordered the sea bass special and... More
