Very nice little place. Menu had variety but not too much that you had to spend hours deciding.

The waiter was fantastic, a gem, and nods to the Chef who created a shrimp appetizer for us that was not on the Menu. Bravo to all concerned, but particularly our waiter. He deserves a raise.

Res: Saturday at 7 PM on August 31st.

We came for brunch in a small group of six. The food was fabulous and the server was AMAZING! She was very funny and engaging. She always made sure we were okay - checking often. We had such a great time and were never rushed. This is our first time here - which is crazy since it's down the street. We will be back soon - and OFTEN!!

Service & food excellent. Chef sent out a delicious starter plate of dates wrapped in bacon - outstanding. Highly recommend the restaurant both for lunch (their hamburger can’t be beat) and dinner. Like to do business with family owned establishments.

Absolutely delicious. Always looking for anew places to try. Definitely try this one. We will be back. Quiet location. Had the homemade olives, bruschetta, the sea bass with risotto and braised short ribs and pasta. Don’t ask me to tell you the name of the pasta, but is all fabulous.

Go here often but it really missed the mark this time. I ended up not even eating. My mother in law's pasta was brought out Luke warm. Overall not a good experience

Had a wonderful dinner with friends. It was a bit dark where we sat though. The service was excellent and the food was very good. I'd definitely recommend this location.

Celebrating my birthday tonight I was looking forward to a great dinner with my wife. Our server told me the seafood special was a seabass and shrimp dish on a bed of bucatini pasta. I was first served seabass on top of risotto and I told the server the dish didn’t look correct. He apologized and told me the chef made a mistake and thought it was just the seabass on the menu, but the seafood special. Again, I confirmed with the server that the special was shrimp AND seabass on a bed of bucatini. Well, the dish that cane out was just shrimp on top of spaghetti. Again I questioned the server and was told that he made a mistake, as last night the special was a shrimp and seabass dish over bucatini. So, after plodding through a few bites of the dish, I didn’t like it and told the server I didn’t want it. He asked if he could box it up for me and I said no, it doesn’t taste good to me. The dish wasn’t taken off the bill, but I was given a 20% discount off just the special. Really? Poor customer service.

Everyone in our party of 10 thought the food was very good. The ambiance was very nice. We sat in a section with another large party and there was plenty of room. The service staff was very nice. We were surprised at the $4.00 split charge, since the meals were not inexpensive. We had a wonderful time.

We were in the area for a college graduation. So glad we found this place and loved our brunch there. Food was fabulous and service great. Family owned business. Very cute Main Street in Glendora CA near Azusa Pacific Univeristy. Helpful that they accepted reservations.

So wonderful!!! 7 of us went there for a birthday celebration and we could not have been happier with the service, food and ambiance. Our server was kind enough to let us know that they had 2 of their specials left in case we wanted to set them aside, which we promptly grabbed. In addition we ordered the stuffed figs, cheese platter and calamari as appetizers (delish) and two of their signature pasta dishes and eggplant parmigiana We couldn't resist dessert ....bread pudding with ice cream, and since we were celebrating a birthday, they included a plate of the most wonderful cannoli. The owner stopped by several times to check on us which was such a nice touch. I live in LA, so driving to Glendora for dinner is a bit of a hike, but one I will gladly do so I can once again experience this wonderful gem of a restaurant.

We had been for lunch two weeks prior and decided to go back for dinner on Saturday. What a great dinner we had! Food was perfect, wine delicious and our server very professional. We will return to Luca Bella and also try the San Dimas location, I wonder if it is the same menu? The only thing not up to par was the greeting hostess. The restaurant was quite empty and she insisted we sat at the back, we said no and she was not happy saying she had reservations: but by the time we left, the place was not full by any means.

Nice time with friends! Waiters are all very kind, accommodating, but the service can be slow. Our party liked the ambience but felt that it was a little too dark inside. I will return in the future! The food is good!

A nice place where we've dined before and will again. Good prices, good vibe, very good food. Unfortunately, the (highly congenial) staff was having a difficult time at the dinner serving on Valentine's Day. The limited, four-course menu had three appetizers, three entrees, and two desserts. The laws of probability would lead you to expect that if two people are dining from such a brief menu, on at least one of the three courses the waiter will bring out the two items we ordered on the first try. But it was not to be; we had to explain that we had ordered not X but Y on three occasions during the evening. At least one table close to ours also was receiving items on what appeared to be a random basis. I'm sure that this restaurant, which has gotten the other important things right, will get this right too.
