We dined here with my nephew, his wife, and their 3 YO. They accommodated my great niece with friendliness and courtesy. The appetizers were awesome and the entrees hit the spot. Definitely a repeat visit is in order. Friendly staff and great atmosphere!

On a recent trip to Denver, we were delighted to have tried Luca. The owner has several unique restaurants. Luca had a high energy environment, casual but nice. We had a very slow greeting but she was good after a rough start. Wimonrat should have just said hello...I'll be right with you instead of us sitting and wondering. On to... More

I have been to Luca several times and they always exceed my expectations! Last night we had the salumi and cheese platter, octopus and the winter green salad for starters. I had the Lobster Tagliatelle and my husband had the Halibut with artichoke. Both dishes were outstanding! They make their own pasta and their sister restaurant cures the meats. You... More

Luca always offers sooo many good choices that we often find ourselves ordering four small plates just to try all of the amazing things yet it's REALLY difficult to not just order the Bolognese EVERY time. Not just the best Bolognese in Denver, the best Bolognese PERIOD! Great people serving great food in a great space.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I made plans to try Luca. I was pleasantly surprised! I thought it would be a more upscale snooty type of restaurant, but there were families having dinner there. It's a small restaurant, only about 25 tables in total. It helps to keep the ambiance of being at a friends house for dinner.... More

Luca is a reliable go-to restuarant for an evening out. The food is very good and the selection is large enough to please most any palate. Watch the salads - they can be over-dressed. The small size pasta dishes are really for an appetizer or if one is not very hungry. The pasta is house-made and delicious. The wine list... More

Recommended by the concierge at our hotel, we found the food and service both very good. So many pasta options available, we settled on each of us ordering several small plates instead of just two entrees, and were glad we did. Started with Tri Colore Arugula, Radicchio, Frisée, Walnuts, Gorgonzola, Red Wine Vinaigrette salad which was very good, and Roasted... More

This restaurant offers a range of familiar Italian options, including many meat, fish, and vegetarian options. Most of the choices we made were good, although the 'lasagnetti with lobster' was so salty the flavours were ruined. A good range of Italian wines are available, although the prices are quite high. The ambience is lovely, though service was inattentive and somewhat... More

have a great time and a good feed. Luca is a "go to" for us, not always perfect but always worth coming back to. First the service is and was outstanding from Kathleen our Principal Server on the team to Jim our Sommelier. We started by splitting a Lobster Fra Diavilo which was liberally supplied with bite size chunks of... More
