5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

First time here, and it was for an anniversary. Hostess saw to it that we got a perfect table (yes, I called ahead for a reservation ). Started with zucchini chips, then 2 very nice salads. Great entrees to choose from, with several vegetarian options. Excellent dessert, and a good wine list that was reasonably priced. Highly recommend!

We frequently have lunch meetings here in the back room, which usually has a good selection and tasty food. They also have an outdoor seating area, which is nice too. This restaurant is a good place to grab dinner before a show.

We had a wonderful family lunch here. Our server was very friendly, helpful and professional. The food and the desserts were scrumptious. The ambience is warm and comfortable. The prices were very reasonable. What more could you ask for? We will be back again.

We tried this restaurant because it is within walking distance of Wells Fargo Pavilion, so is perfect for those of us who are season ticket holders to Music Circus. Guests pour in post-performance, but staff start seating immediately for dinner service. "Life is uncertain so eat dessert first," especially the Chocolate-Caramel Tart. If there is a more delicious, decadent dessert,... More

We made a reservation for our entire family to have dinner at Lucca's after our daughter's graduation from Law School. Our daughter said she had already eaten there many times, and it was her favorite restaurant in Sacramento. It was so good. I had the chicken risotto, and it was delicious. The atmosphere was lovely, and the energy was hopping.... More

We truly enjoy eating at Lucca. Have had two great experiences; one with friends and one our family with a toddler. The staff was fantastic. Very friendly, knowledgeable of the menu and how food was prepared. The speciality drinks were fun and a taste of the wine was offered before we ordered it. The server offered to get the toddlers...

We were invited to a birthday dinner with friends on the final night of our California trip and were so happy that they choose this lovely restaurant. Thankfully they had made a reservation because it was packed with a long waiting list and we were immediately led to a lovely table in the outside dining area. The food and drinks... More

An early dinner, before heading to the airport, began as a stop a Lucca's based on a friends recommendation. We were not disappointed. Service was quick and the description of the daily specials was clear and concise. We began with the fried, thin sliced zucchini and could have ordered more and made that the meal. The specials came well presented... More

The quality and flavors are exceptional. Easy to find downtown location. Moderately priced but you can add a lot with fine wine, appetizers and desert. It was filled with young professionals. Dressed in high fashion. I had the grilled pork chop on a bed of snitzel. I highly recommend it. It was very tender and beautifully seasoned. We also had... More

Food and service very good, great location for the near by show .Wine selection was also good. It can get a little bit load on show night, so sit in the back area. BUD CARTER,TEXAS
