We went there for Easter and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! I had the duck, and it was cooked to perfection, with a delicious balsamic glaze. My husband had steak, cooked perfectly medium rare, and our friend had the sea bass, again delicious! No complaints. The service was exceptional, and the restaurant was very quite.

Special family dinner!!
We had a family dinner for a group of 17 on the balcony for my Aunt's 60th birthday. The food was delicious, the service impeccable, and the atmosphere was energetic! It was our first visit and it definitely won't be our last! The bartender, Sean, made the best drinks & the manager was friendly. We loved it!

Luca & Leonardo is an excellent choice. The Chef did a great job with our selections, the wines and drinks were memorable and the overall experience was enjoyable. Glad to recommend it.

I liked it
Luca and Leonardo is a nice restaurant that is a calm intimate place for a quiet and relaxed dinner. It has a nice atmosphere and easy parking and access to the restaurant. It is on the waterway which is a social hot spot. It is close to the action but away from the louder and annoying parts of the Woodlands Waterway.

Our waitress was very nice and on top of her game. The ambience was very good and we had a reservation..took no time to get us in and situated. I loved the plate I got however my date didn't as much as me. Overall a good experience I would definitely return and recommend this place to others

Birthday at Luca
We celebrated our daughter's 24th at Luca's. What a wonderful restaurant, the wine was superb and the sea bass was some of the best. The outdoor seating with a view of the Woodlands and the waterway is very peaceful and contributes to the great experience.
5/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Much Better Than Expected!
Although the reviews we read were mixed, we gave it a try ourselves and will now recommend it to others. A party of four with a reservation, we enjoyed the outdoor patio and got to listen to the live music played in the courtyard below. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable about wine and the menu. Our entrees included sea bass, spinach ravioli and two steaks. All were delicious, except one steak was only half cooked as ordered- but still edible. The salads and appetizers were good also. All we can figure out is perhaps they had some growing pains in the early going but now they seem on track.

The Best Treatment in The Woodlands
It was our anniversary and every small detail was covered, including a red rose on the table waiting for us. ALL of the staff was attentive without being over-bearing. The food is wonderful and the timing of delivering the courses was impeccable.
6/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Thoroughly enjoyed our monthly date night at Luca & Leonardo. Romantic,ambient setting. Waiter was one of the best we've ever had--Always around, yet unobtrusive. Food was fantastic, liked the extensive wine list. Love this place, will be back!!
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great improvement in service
The service was so much better than the first time we were there and not as over crowded. Our waiter Francis was a gem.

An Italian find!
Our first trip for dinner though we had been there a few times for Sunday brunch which was always excellent! We had a 7:30 reservation and the place was literally full but they found us a table within 5 minutes. Manager was attentive as was the waiter. Mussels were very tasty appetizer, and my mushroom risotto was wonderful. Others had seafood pasta and all complimented the dishes. We will be back.
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Manager Tim's personal attention
Manager Tim's personal attention was perfect -- as was that of the three other folks who served us. (And there were only two of us, believe it or not!) Attentive AND friendly! Food was great, too.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very nice little place; first
Very nice little place; first visit, but we will definitely go back, totally satisfying dining experience.

Great place for a celebration.
We celebrated our anniversary at Luca and Leonardo. We were greeted at the door by two staff members and the manager and then were taken to the best table on the patio. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. There was a red rose and a thank you note waiting on the table when we arrived. The evening ended with a fabulous dessert, a chocolate mousse cannoli.

You don't have to travel any
You don't have to travel any farther than this great restaurant for delicious food and a professional wait staff that will make your evening an experience to remember. If you go later in the evening, ask for a table outside facing the beautiful fountains.

I was looking for a romantic place to take my wife, she had mentioned that she wanted to try rissto that we had seen on hells
Kitchen and when I did a search for risotto this place come up and let me tell you this you will not be disappointed!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, great service. The waiter was very attentive and knowledgable. Great place for a romantic dinner.

First time to visit this establishment. Beautiful, excellent food and service. We will be back soon
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
We will be going back!
Our dinner was amazing. My fiancee and I were celebrating 3 occasions, 5 years in our relationship, my birthday and her being accepted into a university. I scanned Google real quick to try and find something new. This was it and will continue to be. The food was perfect, I'm not a picky eater but I don't use perfect to describe anything often, at all. The staff was wonderful, very friendly and attentive. We had a wonderful evening. Go here to eat! Do not settle for anything less!
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, exceptional service. They did not have a kid's menu but improvised reasonably for my 5 children. Everyone liked their food. my salmon was delicious.

Great Brunch Buffet!
This is my second time at Luca for the Sunday brunch buffet. It was as good as it was the first time. The food was great, the bottomless mimosas are a great deal. Service was outstanding and the manager was walking around checking on tables so we felt like we were treated with alot of attention. My only gripe is the music. The first time we went they were playing an great mix of motown which is perfect for a Sunday morning brunch. This time around they had some sort of upbeat electronic music. It was kind of annoying. Hopefully they can get that mellow motown back the next time we visit Luca.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We hosted a group of staff from work and this was our first experience at this restaurant. The Food was fresh and served quickly. Staff was attentive and pleasant. My wife and i will return.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Like a meat freezer in there
Very gracious service, above average food and wonderful ambience that was negatively influenced by the absolutely freezing temperature in our area of restaurant. It was too cold to even stay for dessert. We weren't the only group that felt this way...
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect Friday night out
My husband and I, along with another friend had dinner on the patio/balcony overlooking the beautiful waterway fountains. What a treat. Service was very attentive, food was outstanding (we all had one of the special fish dishes, Sea Bass or Mahi), they had a favorite wine of ours available also. We were full and didn't have dessert this time, but from past experience I know to order the Merenguatta. Amazing. All in all a wonderful evening.
9/6/2013 5:00:00 PM
Amazing night out
What an amazing place. Food was excellent. The wine list was extensive. The service was great. It was my wife's birthday and she even received a card from the owner. Great place. I highly recommend it. The view is over the waterway and there is not a bad seat in the house.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went for the brunch and were pleasantly surprised. The food was great other than the waffles but there are lots of other items on the brunch buffet which also were nicely presented. My husband especially enjoyed the crab legs. We had a window seat and were at first the only customers. The service we received was excellent and we will definitely come back for dinner.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was an excellent experience!
The perfect combination for our special occasion: serviced, food quality and ambience.

What a great experience! I made reservations for my friend's birthday! When we showed up, we were greeted by the hostess with a "Happy Birthday!" At the table there was a card and a rose for her! It made her day. The service was outstanding and the good was wonderful! Highly recommended!

Hip Adult Scene and Fine Cuisine
This is one of the most authenic Italian places in the metro area. My friend and I are frequent travellers to Italy and this place always seems to please. The food is fresh and cooked to almost perfection. The pasta is not over or undercooked. The sauce is is not canned with a tin or metallic taste. It always tastes like vegatables, seafood, and herbs. Iwas also like to mention the atmosphere is alive and adults. The place has a hip slightly older scene and is not full of loud cackling teenagers or crying babies. Thank goodness.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had a GREAT experience at
I had a GREAT experience at this restaurant! I took my girlfriend here right after I proposed to her. They set up a special table just for us with roses and a card that said happy anniversary. The waitress was great and the owner came over to speak to us and wish is well. The ambiance and food was excellent and so was the service. Highly recommend!

Scenic, romantic, AnniversaryDinner
We had a lovely time and enjoyed the special touches (a rose and a note and a special dessert) that the staff at Luca and Leonardo added to make our special evening even more special. We enjoyed browsing the menu while sipping our wine selection. Both entrees were nicely prepared: the fettucine for him and the penne for her. The waitstaff were pleasant, efficient, and not too hovering. We will be pleased to return.

Great food in a special setting
Luca and Leonardo is a wonderful quaint Italian restaurant with great ambiance and excellent authentic Italian food. Claudia, the owner greets you warmly and makes sure you feel welcome. The service is excellent and you don't have to ask for anything; the wait staff watch and know before you do what you need next. The salads are quite large and fresh, crisp, tasty. The boule braise was rich, full of seafood, with flavors woven in...permeating each spoonful. Really yummy! The spaghetti vongole was chocked full of clams with a delicate garlic butter sauce . Each bite full of aromatic juices that you must use the bread to soak up every last drop.
Save room for dessert.....the chocolate torte was amazing! large enough to share .

We had dinner here last night. I made a note that it was my wife's birthday. Arrived and were seated promptly at a table with a Waterway view, very nice. There was a birthday card on the table for my wife, nice surprise. We had the tomato bisque to start and it was delicious. My wife had the Arribiatta, and I had the surf and turf special of the day.
During the meal they brought my wife a long stemmed rose and again wished her a Happy Birthday. After the meal, they comped us a wonderful dessert, Merengatta. It was absolutely delicious.
This place is very nice inside, comfortable and cozy, with wonderful views of the Waterway. The staff is fantastic.
I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a place for a special occasion.

This ranks as one of our greatest
This ranks as one of our greatest dining experiences we have had. The view over the Waterway along with the lighting and water falls amounted to one of the most romantic experiences available in the Houston area and when you top it off with the menu Specials we ordered and our service (Jeff was the BEST) the evening could not have been any better. Luca & leonardo's should be on everyone's list for their special occasion.

17 year anniversary dinner ordered the Lobster Bisque to share with the wife and also the Lobster Ravioli, the sauce on the Ravioli was the same as the Bisque. Rather disapointed in that both foods share the same thing in common. Although the raviolis were outstanding and cooked perfectly but for the resturant I would have expected much better than that. They did remove the Ravioli from the ticket. Overall it was a nice place and food was good. The meat and cheese tray was a home run!!!!!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everything about this experience was wonderful. Staff was helpful and efficient. Food was fantastic. Ambience was great.

Lovely anniversary dinner
I very recently took my wife here for our first anniversary dinner, and we were not disappointed at all. I made not of the special occasion when reserving the table, and they had a nice little anniversary card and special flowers waiting for us, and they provided a free desert as well. We sat outside, so we could watch the water way, listen to the music, and breath the nice night air (glad it was perfect that night). The food was quite delicious, and ready rather quickly. Our waitress was attentive and very personable. All in all an awesome experience.

I had reservations, arrived on time and someone else took our table. We had a good table but it was strange.
