Dined at Cafe Lucci with another couple on a Friday night. As usual, the food was excellent. However, the noise level was so loud that all four of us could not participate in a conversation simultaneously. Rather, one could only talk to the person adjacent and not one across the table. Also feel that their pours of hard liquor is on the stingy side. Love the food, though.

Food is always great. Not a great value for an Italian restaurant but because of the stellar reputation of the food, they can command a premium price. The main dining room is a bit packed and loud but not terribly uncomfortable.

Food and service were very good as always. But the noise level literally spoiled our dinner. It was Saturday night and I understand people were having fun. But the noise level was off the charts.

Introduced a friend to Cafe Lucci. She had heard how much we loved the restaurant and was anxious to see and taste for herself. We had a delightful dinner! Service was very attentive and the food delicious. A couple of large groups were dining but we were able to carry on conversations at our table without a problem. We enjoyed a nice relaxed dinner. Pasta dishes were the hit of the night with us gals. Brother-in-law had his favorite, veal scampi. Looking forward to our next visit.

This is our go to restaurant for a special occasion. It can be very noisy in the larger room which is why we ask for the smaller room. Food is always great. Never disappoints.

Love Cafe Lucci!! It is one of the few restaurants in the world that is not overly loud and clanging!!
The service is always good, the food delicious. I am always treated like royalty there, and for special
evenings, it is my restaurant of choice. You want to be able to talk, you want great food, great wine.
You get it here, and without that annoying interruption of "how are you enjoying your dinner" which
always puts a crimp in animated conversation. That does not happen here. Love this place!!

Cafe Lucci never disappoints. I usually order one of the specials offered, as does my sister-in-law. I had the nut crusted walleye. Delicious! She had the gnocchi, also delicious. Brother-in-law stays with his tried and true veal scampi. Great assortment of Appetizers starts the evening of enjoyment of delicious meals and excellent service.

Nice place with great knowledgeable staff and excellent food. We are sort of food snobs and generally find most restaurants lacking in quality, especially more expensive restaurants, most don’t serve food commensurate with their price point and we leave saying “we can do better at home”. That is not the case with this place, it was kind of on the expensive side, but we left saying it was worth it, we couldn’t keep up with that at home.
