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.

A bit pricey for the wine and evening but the quality is exceptional. Noise factor is high due to the construction and interior of the old building. Often very cold and drafty but drink a lot and you can warm up.

We always enjoying coming to Luca Bella, the food is great and is the service. Of course the sound level is just terrible, but that is something that can't be changed, it just the way the building is structured. So we will still come, just not my husband who has hearing problems.

I have been to Luca Bella for Brunch several times and it never disappoints. I love eating outside on their patio. The server was amazing, the food scrumptious and the price very reasonable. I will be back! I love their coffee, mimosa flight, breakfast potatoes, omelets and blueberry pancakes!

Food was excellen as was the service. The place was full & noise level was “over the top”. Difficult to hear each other. I would come back, but around 1:30 when noise level more bearable. Two large parties at the time we were there. Wait staff was wonderful as was the food however.

I chose the restaurant as a meeting point with friends from Pasadena while we came from Claremont with our daughter and roommate at college. Glendorra was a delightful surprise with immaculately manicured, gumdrop-like trees lining the main street that the restaurant was on. We elected to sit outside on a mild autumn evening and received excellent service from our waiter. The menu offered a nice range of smaller to larger plates. My husband and I both ordered a full entrée and could have easily split one between the two of us. Another person ordered 2 small plates and they were similarly generous. Our choices ranged across a burger, roasted beet salad, seafood pasta, sautéed sea bass and spaghetti and meatballs! They were all excellent. Unfussy, but complex tastes and well prepared. The wine list wasn't huge, but offered a nice range of choices heavy on California wines which we preferred since we were visiting from out of state. We split a chocolate volcano cake with vanilla gelato for dessert which was divine. If you're looking for a special restaurant offering a wide range of well-prepared entrees and appetizers that won't break the bank, then this is certainly a place worth checking out.

I met a friend who I hadn’t seen in years for brunch on Sunday. Luca Bella was wonderful! It is a charming and quaint restaurant. We sat inside but they have a cute little patio area too.

The staff are engaging and pleasant. The food was delicious, looked beautiful and was very reasonably priced.

We both had omelettes with LB potatoes. They were fabulous. But, I saw several of their brunch burgers and egg Benedict plates go by - and I will definitely be back to try those.

The place was busy but we were given lots of attention but were not made to feel rushed at all. I highly recommend Luca Bella.
