we always go as a big group with kids and adults and young adults . Simply put its the best pizza for miles , the seafood "shells" are brilliant varying from day to day depending on what is fresh . The wine can be a wee bit hit and miss so bring your own but the pale Pilsner is always chilled and excellent . Soft drinks are available, coffee is itallian as are the Pizzas which are baked in a real wood oven you are right on the beach . Service aint quick but when you get there you are in no hurry to leave . the journey there is as much fun as the food

We ordered pizza and although it is not like American pizza that I am used to it was good. The atmosphere is great! The staff could have been a little more friendly and attentive.

Take your time and seek out Luca's Restaurant tucked away at the end of Talypanan Beach. Beautiful pizzas come piping hot from the oven, succulent and really tasty! Great beach front views, a happy family atmosphere, simply a great place to while away an afternoon washed down with SML!

This is the third time I ate in this restaurant and each experience is always different. My first visit the food was fantastic, the second time is okay and this third time is also okay. The quality of the food differs I guess with the person manning the kitchen. But always, the overall experience because of the ambiance and good company is great.

With some Italian food, a bottle of wine, great company, fantastic beachside view and good conversation, it is your choice to turn it into a fantastic experience.

By the way, we bought the wine hoping there will be no corkage fee and furtunately, since wine is not part of the menu, they allowed us to drink it.

Reading food reviews of Puerto Galera in the internet disheartens any would be travelers of finding decent food. I threw caution to the wind and voila! Fate favors the brave. We found not just one but two dining places making our Malasimbo Festival visit worth the trip.

Luca's is an unassuming Italian diner along the beach facing the deep blue sea of Talipanan and the beautiful coast of rolling green hills with swaying coconut palm trees. The tropical humidity being blown away by the fresh sea breeze. Perfect!

The food, the food. As you sit down looking at them perfect view the smell of pizza cooking in the oven tickles your nose and whets your anticipation. The serving plates of mussels and clams heading to someone elses dinner table makes you wish you came early. Thoroughly enjoyed the generous portions served along with a cold, cold drink.

As the location is beyond the paved roads of Talipanan, a village at the ends of Puerto Galera earth, staying in Luca's means having a very very good breakfast omelette with beautiful Italian coffee.

Grazie!
