Our First Experience at Lucca was absolutely delightful.

I couldn’t get over the one long room with the chef station right in the middle, and then the simple one page menu with five or six items listed with no descriptions. Of course, the waitstaff will explain.

Our waitress was wonderful and explained everything beautifully. We tried the Risotto dish, their Salmon preparation, and topped off with their Chocolate Cake. We totally loved the presentations, the preparations, and the atmosphere. Prices were reasonable for the value received, and my wife and I vowed that we’d be back.

Lucca Restaurant going down hill

Poor quality ingredients and lack luster menu. Can get better at chain restaurants. It smells bad in there -- fishy and stinky. Cool interior but it doesn't make up for the poor food and bad smells.

Lucca uses quaility ingredients.

Excellent menu- very creative. Used quality incredients in an interesting way. Very Pricey, but I think you get what you pay for. Excellent Ecellent service. Come as you are, no need to dress up.
