Very Nice without being pretentious. Love the white tablecloths. Very good to excellent cuisine. Seafood is very fresh and well prepared. The orange cake may be the best cake anywhere, ever. Knowledgeable, gracious and appropriate waitstaff.

My current favorite appetizer is the grilled octopus, with mini heirloom tomatoes and micro greens. Tender, tasty and a good sized portion. Escargot is also a very delicious appetizer, served in a butter garlic sauce with soft grilled toast points to soak up the sauce. Any one of the specials for the evening is a good choice, especially the fresh fish. I have yet to be disappointed with any of the menu selections. And desserts are not to be missed. Many of the servings large enough to share. I had the pistachio gelato which was silky smooth and delicious nutty taste. Yum! This was the first time we had "Sam" as our waiter and he was attentive, knowledgable and made our dinning experience a very pleasant one. Noise level this evening was rather boisterous and conversations were a little strained but we still had a great time and a fantastic meal.

I love this place for it's upscale clientele and good food. Wine selection is something they stress and is pretty good. We shared 3 entrees (two pastas and chicken with Italian sausage) among our group of 4 and it was still a lot of food. The chicken with Italian sausage is a go to dish for me, crispy succulent 1/2 chicken with delicious sausage and pepperoncini and a fabulous sauce. Great service too.

We had wonderful service from the valet, to the host, and especially our waiter! My friend had the grouper special which was fine, but not outstanding. I had the fettuccine vasco, which it turns out, was not my taste. But that was not their fault as the flavor and cheese was explained to me and I took a risk and lost! I ate it all though, so all's well. Everything is ala carte, so ultimately I feel it is a bit overpriced, but we had a good time and our server was wonderful! I would go back 😊

The only frustration is lack of collaboration between Open Table and Cafe Lucci on the evening of December 24. Open Table showed reservations available for 8:30, 8:45, 9:00 which we were excited to find at the time of making our reservation. But what did not appear was the fact that Cafe Lucci’s kitchen closed at 9:00! We were all very unhappy about that. Our reservation was at 8:45. We were rushed by the wait staff to order, etc. and what I wanted to order was no longer available. Otherwise, I know Cafe Lucci to be a great restaurant.

First disappointing meal here. Stuffed portabella was just ok and delivered cool. Grilled octopus was tasteless with very little evidence of grilling. Each entree had a minor miss as well. Tiramisu is best when simply served, but this version had sauces criss crossing all over the plate. Overall an unusual miss for a favorite local dining spot.

Free valet parking when you arrive is very nice. The staff were all very attentive. We arrived for a slightly early dinner at 6 and it was half full. Very quickly the restaurant filled with people waiting in the bar and waiting area. The food was delicious as was the wine. Definitely will come back.

We dined on a Sunday night and the place was about 1/2 full. The noise level was perfect for conversation. The waiter was very attentive, almost too much, but woukd prefer this other than the opposite.

The food quality was very good. We had a mix a pastas, chicken & veal. The portions were larger and the food was served hot which was great. There were at about 10 specials and there was a large & diverse menu. The prices were a few $ more than typical. We will return!

The food was wonderful, the drinks were really good. The reason I gave it a 3 overall is because of something really odd. We were a party of 3; we ordered 3 drinks, 2 of them old fashioneds. When the bill came, 1 of them was $8.50 and the other was $10.50! When we asked about it, the first answer was because they were "rocks" drinks. The 2nd answer (by the mgr) was they'd done it that way for over 20 years (?!?!?), a non-answer that always gets my back up. The 3rd answer (by mgr) was because they had more alcohol in it, so think of it as $9.50 each. Huh?? Then why weren't they both $9.50? Did one of them have more booze than the other? If so, why? None of the answers made any sense. However, given all that, we would probably go back.

This was the first time in over ten years I'd been to Cafe Lucci. I'd forgotten just how fabulous they are. The food was excellent, the service superb, and the atmosphere was lovely. Everyone enjoyed their meal. I've been there many times in the past when I worked in the area. They were the go to for lunch meetings, and often for dinner meetings also. It's nice to see they've maintained their high standards all these years. I highly recommend them!

We've eaten here many times. We ask for the back room since the ceiling is lower and its quieter. This time there were 5 of us celebrating a birthday. Waiter was funny when I couldn't decide on a wine he brought me a sample of each which is nice. I ordered pasta and meatballs for the first time and I didn't like the meatballs as they were red pepper spicy and maybe had pork in them. My brother like his though. They brought us a tasty piece of chocolate cake for the birthday. It's expensive for the wine and food.
