Casa Luca in Washington, D.C., offers guests a menu filled with rustic meals that reflect the traditional fare of the Marche region of Italy. The dining area is casual enough for a workday lunch, but elegant enough for a date night and the owners of Casa Luca work hard to ensure that everyone feels welcomed. All of the dishes served are meant to be shared among your party.
Begin your meal at Casa Luca with starters like cured meat and cheese platters, followed by main dishes like homemade pastas, seafood and meat dishes. Dessert at Casa Luca includes house made sorbet and gelato, as well as a refreshing glass of limoncello.
Trabocchi never disappoints! Food, service, cocktails were all excellent--that's why this is one of my favorite restaurants in DC, hands-down!
Food is great, as expected, but the bar is slow when you're already seated for dinner. It's better to order a pre-dinner cocktail from the bar and then get seated.
Waited 10 minutes after being seated for anyone to acknowledge out party. Main course arrived just moments after our salad arrived. We sent our main courses back to the kitchen. The manager apologized and said he would have something for us at the end of our meal, and then we never received any courtesy and never saw the manager again.
The food was very good, particularly the Summer Salad which was incredible. Service was warm and attentive. It was an expensive meal but a delicious one.
Great service, good food, no surprises but steady. Every dish is well executed.
The restaurant has pleasant employees and the food is good, but expensive, as a brunch.
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening here. The wait staff were incredibly helpful. Our waiter recommended a wine only to find that they didn't have it in stock. The restaurant then suggested another wine and offered it to us at the same price as the one we'd selected. The food was delicious and the portions were generous. The noise level was very tolerable and ebbed as the Friday evening went on - a pleasant and uncommon surprise for a DC restaurant!
Service was outstanding, dessert was memorably delicious
This was our second experience with Casa Luca and it was not a disappointment. I think the service was even better the second time around and I especially appreciated the attention the staff gave to me on my birthday. I chose the salmon for dinner but due to the extremely hot weather my appetite which is normally robust was smaller due to the heat. I could not eat as much of the delicious meal as I would have like and no less the four people came to ask if I liked my salmon. It was perfect and I was a bit overwhelmed at the attention paid to me. The birthday card and cake was just wonderful and it was the perfect place to celebrate.
The food was fabulous. The service was spotty. Never refilled waters and tea and as soon as we were done with the entree, we were ignored. Took a long time to bring the check even after asking for it. And I expected the food to be expensive and it was worth it. But a $7 bottle water, esp. when it was "pushed" on us when they asked if we wanted ice water or sparkling water. Really?
