Description: A refreshing departure from the ordinary; Luca’s Ristorante Flemington is inventive and original, all-the-while authentic regional Italian gastronomy. It’s Chef Luca DiMeglio’s personification of the soul of Ischia (Italy’s famous island wonderland, located off the coast of Naples) right here in the heart of suburban Flemington. Maintaining with the philosophies that make Italian food such a delight, Chef Luca believes in crafting every element of the dish by hand. Against the beautiful backdrop that is Luca’s dining room, you will begin your dining experience with a basket of assorted artisan breads, followed by one of his homemade pastas, famous hand-cut gnocchi (nonna’s original recipe), or from a selection of one of the evening’s enchanting specials. The final touch; one of Chef Luca’s select desserts accompanied by the perfect cup of locally micro-roasted espresso or cappuccino. Benvenuti e Buon Appetito!

“Great food, good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2013

We stopped for the second time at this restaurant. It is clean and friendly. The staff are great. The tripe was hot and spicy and not served in the usual manner. The breads and dips were out of this world! The scallop and squid pasta dish was excellent. I had the monkfish; it was real monkfish and perfectly cooked. The portions are large. If you are shopping at the outlets, stop here. You will not be disappointed. It is BYOB too.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013 via mobile

Visited Luca's based upon reviews here. Service was excellent! We chose to try the fresh fig appetizer and it was awesome; fresh figs wrapped in prosciutto, with a balsamic drizzle. One of us had the vegetable lasagna which was excellent. The pasta was fresh, light and tender and the tomato sauce was light and tasty. One of us had the pasta with chipotle pulled pork, also excellent.

“Still the Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2013

The food at this place is unbelievable. Luca came out with a new menu not too long ago and I'm in a constant internal battle of what I should order because it all sounds so good! I have been coming to Luca's somewhat regularly for a while now and my dining experience is never anything but exceptional. If you're looking for an outstanding meal and a lovely evening, you're going to want to stop by Luca's. You won't be disappointed.

“What time is Luca's open? Are they open for lunch?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

I love Luca's. I can't see their hours anywhere on their website, or on Trip Advisor or Yelp. What time is Luca's open? Are they open for lunch?

“OUTSTANDING”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013 via mobile

I have recently eaten at Luca's and can not explain how delicious the food is. Would recommend the seven fishes dish as an entree and a cappuccino (the best might i add) to fulfill your pallet The best out there. If you're looking for a rustic, elegant, and enjoyable place to eat, make it your best to try to come here.
