Lucca is a fairly small space compared to some of the "modern" massive restaurants in the market today. But, it is certainly a place were "good things come in small packages." We have been there twice, first with a Groupon, and then we took my in-laws there after checking the place out. On both occasions the service was exceptional and... More

After reading reviews and having been recommended to come here by a couple people, I decided this would be the place to go for Father's day with my husband and parents. My Husband and Father being from Italian background they are difficult to please when it comes to Italian food. From the start of the garlic and bread down to... More

I'm a regular at Lucca, the food is superb! Only surpassed by the wonderful wait staff, Beer and Wine available. I have had a dozen different entries here, all perfect, and the soups are to kill for.

If you blink you'll miss this restaurant set back on A1A, but that would be a shame. I have never had a bad meal here and the staff always goes out of their way to make your visit special. I had the veal marsala and it was perhaps the best presentation of this dish I've ever had. The veal was... More

This place is a must visit for us every time we are in town. The food is always excellent, and we have always had very good service. Small dining room is quiet and intimate. Wine list offers reasonable selection in terms of options and prices. Burratta appetizer is a must try. Split the veal marsala, soooo good and generous portions.... More

We had dinner here before we went to a Play. The food was good for 3 out of the 4 meals. The chicken parm was dry and the sauce was very thick. Nice restaurant, but also very expensive.

We also had calamari mussels and cape else salad as apps. Just delicious!!! My husband had penne ala vodka delicious!!!! Italian cake and cannolis for desert. I am Sicilian... More

good food and pleasant atmosphere made this a very pleasant evening out. We were drawn here by a discount coupon and would definitely return in the future.

We asked a number of folks about a recommendation for a good Italian restaurant. While we were told about several others, Lucca was not one of their choices. We read the reviews in trip advisor and looked at the menu and gave it a try and we were not disappointed. The food is wonderful as is the service. This cozy... More

Description
Our lovely South Florida Italian restaurant is set in an elegant, yet understated dining area. The aromas of freshly baked foccacia, garlic, oregano and seafood fresh from the market, waft from the kitchen where we create memorable soups, delicious seafood, chicken, pasta and veal dishes, as well as sinfully decadent desserts. Every day our chef prepares delightful specials made with only the finest ingredients and spices of the season. We are located across from the ocean on A1A in beautiful Fort Lauderdale.
