It is BYO, however they do have a vineyard license. We brought our own wine. Anyway, the service was decent...slightly slow,though friendly. We ordered the spiedini, which was incredible as an appetizer. My boyfriend had the veal saltimbocca and I ordered the tilapia with lump crabmeat and pasta. Both entrees were excellent and I took half of mine home. The restaurant offers daily specials as well, which looked amazing on other Payton's dishes. The desserts are brought in locally and the crem brûlée was amazing. Great local spot!!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were there to celebrateWe were there to celebrate Mother's Day a couple of weeks later because of crazy schedules. We had to eat early on a Saturday night, 5:30 because that was the only time we could get a reservation. Once we got in there and had the food we understood why it was so difficult to get a reservation. The service was terrific, they gave us just enough time to enjoy our courses without us feeling either neglected or rushed. The food was wonderful as well, the only comment my fellow diners had was that the calamari was a bit overcooked. I don't eat it so I cannot comment but everything on my plate and everyone's dinner was fantastic!
We will absolutely return!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMSelection was very appealingSelection was very appealing and the food and service were excellent.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMCute and very good restaurantI liked the atmosphere - was located at a strip mall and the outside appearance was very pleasing. The inside decor was very nice as well. Food presented well and delicious. Would definitely go back!!! Veal was very very tender. The recent good reviews are what prompted me to try this place and was so glad I did. Thank you everyone! :)5/22/2013 12:00:00 AM50th Anniversary celebratory dinnerWe invited a couple celebrating their 50th anniversary to dine with us at Luca's. Our choice was based on 2 previous excellent lunches there. Although we were half an hour early and our dining partners, tied up in traffic, were half an hour late, the staff seated us immediately and made us comfortable with a bottle of wine and basket of delicious breads. When our dining partners arrived, our orders were quickly taken. We all had different appetizers and entrees, and each was outstanding. Portions were so generous that we each took home enough for lunch for 2 the next day. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone who appreciates a good meal!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMInteresting selection of traditionaInteresting selection of traditional Italian, good size portions. You won't go home hungry.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful food experienceWe celebrated my husband's birthday at Luca's and everything about the evening was magical.
The decor of the restaurant reminded us of being back in Italy.
Our waiter Angelo was warm and friendly and accommodated our every request.
The freshly baked breads, olive oil with herbs, and sun dried tomato spread were an outstanding beginning to our meal.
The appetizers were especially amazing. The burrata was creamy, fresh, and flavorful.
The crab and corn chowder was rich and one of the best soups we had ever tasted.
The petit Osso Bucco was delectable.
Our experience at this restaurant was so wonderful that I returned a few nights later with a group of women. Same wonderful waiter and superb food experience.
I highly recommend this restaurant.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSurprisingly great restaurantSurprisingly great restaurant in strip mall. Food was excellent. Only complaint was that theyran out of a special and it was onlyh 6PM on Saturday night!
Great Italian food. Risotto and fish dishes were superb. Kids loved the Margharita pizza and the pasta. Great bread basket.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWOW! What an unexpectedlyWOW! What an unexpectedly great experience! Nothing about the exterior of this little gem gives a hint to what is on the inside. Certainly other reviews on the site and other sites gave some hint...but I have been misled before by web reviews. The ambience of the restaurant speaks to the heritage of Luca the owner. The wait staff was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The food was delicious and the portions were abundant..first time in a long time that I needed a doggie bag. I would (and already have )) recommend Luca's to my friends.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMChef Andrea is passionateChef Andrea is passionate about cooking. His menu caters to everyone. I love the
