Not classic Italian. I was not overwhelmed by the food, but the staff was wonderful and the outside patio was great.

Very busy and very friendly. I gave it a 4 point rating rather than 5 because the acoustics are so bad that one can't converse with the person sitting across from them. Wait staff was very friendly and efficient. Food was excellent and price was right.

Valet parking was great. Service was very good. The chicken piccata was ok. It was great to get in and out within an hour at lunch time. Make a reservation to guarantee a seat. Not a huge menu. The Cheesecake desert was amazing. I will go there again.

We planned to have Sushi but the wait was too long ( mikuni) so went here instead... when my husband barely touched his chicken piccata, the server did not ask him why... I tasted his dinner and knew-they put Brussels sprout leaves in the dinner! Love chicken picaata, love Brussels, love lemon on both but the combination was bitter and... More

Lucca's is a good restaurant not average and not very good. The food is good (above average) and the service for us, very good. The restaurant is not very noisy and you can for the most part have a conversation. It is a good choice if you are at the convention center. The price is a little high. There was... More

We were seated promptly, ordered round of cocktails and 3 starters. Drinks were little slow arriving from bar (approx 10-15 minute wait) as was the last of the 3 starters we ordered. Last starter was... More

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.)

Thank S D
