Being form the East Coast I'm somewhat hesitant to get seafood 1000 miles away. However, I was pleasantly surprised with DeLuca's and had one of the best Italian meals. Sea Scallops, shrimp in a red clam sauce was truly delicious. Will definitely be back...

Jacinto was great to work with for a group lunch of 23. We had the upstairs party room all to ourselves. We preordered off the menu and they had the food ready for us super fast! It was delicious too.

We had dinner on a week night. The restaurant was not very busy. A gentleman was playing soft ballads on an accordion. The service was excellent. The food was good but not great. We had chopped chicken salad and braciola.
