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

I love to dine outside when the weather is nice and if you do also, then Lucca is perfect for you. I attended a large business dinner there on the patio and had a wonderful evening. It started out with a great waitress followed by great food. I had the Chicken Saltimbocca and though not a traditional preparation, it was... More

WE were invited by friend who live in Sacramento to this inside seating restaurant with an open air patio. The location is great right in the heart of downtown. You go for the food which did not disappoint. We had the Linguine with Prawns and the Pan Seared Salmon. Both dishes were presented very well and both were delicious. It... More

We have enjoyed dining here a few times. The food is very good, well prepared and the prices are quite reasonable. The dessert should be skipped as it was a little "stale" tasting and bland. The only reason I dinged the value part of this review is because the average wines are expensive. The outdoor patio is a great place... More

I visited based on a friends recommendation, since I am from out of town. I loved the atmosphere, the staff was very nice and engaging. It is a fun place to go. The menu had a very nice variety. The food was good but not as great as I hoped. I had the sea bass special, again it was good... More

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.
