It was Easter night and Lucca’s was open...they said it wasn’t planned. Good luck for us and many others. Good food, good prices and very friendly staff.

Good service and tasty food but the place is so loud that it was difficult to hear each other. The parking is awful and you will be ticketed if you do not heed the local signage.

Kitchen View seating is so fun! Food is fantastic. Pizza is the best! But a little too fancy for our teens so next time I am leaving them home. Great place for romantic evening.

Contemporary restaurant with a clean and comfortable feel. Young crowd (pre-kids, pre-mortgage). A bit noisy but not too. We shared a pizza and ordered desert. My nut tort was wonderful. Great service. Jazz combo was a nice touch.
