We came here for my fiancés birthday and it was the perfect place for a romantic dinner. Everyone was very kind and made us feel special. Dinner and drinks were 10/10, we sat in their main dining room. We are looking forward to coming back and possibly sitting on their gorgeous patio!

Food and service were very good. The frog legs are a must try. It was our first visit since we are from out of town. My wife had the duck and it was very tender and succulent. I had the elk loin chops. Also good, but maybe a little dry, but never had it before and know it’s a leaner meat which could have attributed some to it. Great place for couples to go. They do not have wine or cocktail list on the website, but they do have it. Our server was good and I like how everyone that works in the restaurant is part of the program they have. I figured it was just the cooks, but the servers as well. If you saw them you would never know they had an addiction and it’s great they are doing so well after, especially with the assistance there cause offers.

I brought my husband and 2 year old here this weekend for Father's Day. The service was outstanding. At one point, my little one got a bit fussy. The waitress and host were helpful, even brought little toys to distract her. The food was great. We will definitely return.

Only thing wrong was that waitress cleared my guest’s dish while I was still eating. The restaurant was empty so it wasn’t because they were waiting for the table.

We were looking for a spot in Sandusky for an early dinner where we could get good food that wasn’t the standard fried food options but still affordable. We were SO impressed with the menu, the specials, the service, the prices, the FOOD, and the ambience. What a great place! We shared the Baby Greens salad and a bottle of white wine (half priced wine on Wednesdays!!) and each ordered off the specials menu - lobster rolls (langostino). The lobster rolls were very tasty and fresh, not too saucy, but not dry either. Served with pea shoot and microgreens on a nice roll. Service was great, and the atmosphere is beautiful.

Canton
About the restaurant
In Italy, Lucca is a region known for beauty and old world charm. In Canton, Lucca bottles that same old world charm, small restaurant community and brings it to you. Using only fresh ingredients, quality service and a dedication to authenticity, Lucca serves �la dolce vita� or �the good life.� Similar to the Tuscan restaurants that inspire Lucca, locally sourced ingredients go into all of the dishes. Along with a full bar, sit down to try the hand made pasta, Prime steak, seafood overnighted from Hawaii or the local double boned pork chop. Be sure to ask your server about the dessert of the day which is always a gourmet treat.
