    Great happy hour options at the bar, food was PHENOMENAL and, in my opinion, very fairly priced. Dessert was outstanding. A little noisy but not anything disrupting and slight miscommunication with our server but overall amazing dinner date.

    The food was to die for, I did get a few bits of shell in my mouth though which was a bit of surprise. I had the squid in ravioli with shrimp and lobster and it was amazing. We were celebrating two birthdays and the tiramisu was great as always. Luca for birthdays is a new tradition for sure!

    I have dined here several times in the past with good results and decided to take my daughter for her Birthday. It was very disappointing compared to other times I have dined here. The service was not great and very slow had to hurry and order everything in fear we would still he waiting for our main meal . Our party of 5 was seated at the first booth by the entrance constant traffic of people going by became very annoying and distracting. Some of the dishes were overstated with too much garlic and that's all you could taste and could only eat a couple bites. The filet was much better and seasoned just right. They do a nice service in taking your tables picture and giving it to the birthday person. I will try again but this time was way below the mark of past visits.

    The veal tortellini was out of this world! Scallop fettuccini special was delicious. The caprese was just okay- I would skip this one thing next time. great wine list at reasonable (for a restaurant) price and every single diner in our party of 4 had a fabulous meal. The service was timely and well done- though the waitress seemed very aloof and had a bit of an attitude. The view is the best Cleveland has to offer. Parking is a pain but oh well. We moved here to Cleveland 2 years ago and this is the best meal we have had since relocating from Denver. We have been disappointed by many others that were recommended by locals as "great" which were NOT. Luca finally makes my heart sing!

    Dinner was great, we were seated in the atrium next to a group of young women that were celebrating. Fine except that there were numerous open tables that they could have separated us to. I would go back, the food made up for the ambiance. I had the Ossa Bucco Chingalle, excellent.

    In from out of town and spent hours researching the perfect spot for dinner - as two people who work in fine dining restaurants we love finding a gem in each new city we go to! I had requested a booth and mentioned in the reservation that we were first timers- The host team was possibly my biggest issue with the evening. They were not very warm from the start. Immediately led us to the outside patio area for dinner where I was seated across from my partner and it was so dark I couldn’t read the menu (and I’m only 30!) I felt like I was a mile away from him. The whole time I was looking up inside longing to be enjoying the evening those guests were, with the view and ambiance a first timer deserved (I felt.) It just felt off putting and like requests are not even read or honored. When asking how to find the restroom the male host even seemed to me a bit rude. “Out in the hall.” Our waitress was also a bit strange. I asked her to help me choose a wine because I’m not familiar with Italian reds. I had her surprise me and she dropped it off without even explaining which glass she had given me. Our food was luckily the saving grace. Incredible food. I would come back, just for the food, and hopefully have a better experience service wise the next time. Sadly who knows when I’ll ever be in Cleveland again.

    We were seated outside which is not as nice as the inside and our server was not great. She didn’t pay attention to our food allergies and was not very attentive at all There was a lot of bones in the fish which was also concerning. This was probably my worst experience here.

    Truly giving our first experience here a 5/5. Everything was amazing, from the service to the food to the ambiance. We got lucky with some pretty great specials that were also priced very reasonably. They surprised us with a dessert and a picture of the two of us for our anniversary. It was so good I cannot wait to come back! I highly recommend Luca.

    This was our first time here we came to celebrate our 3 year wedding anniversary we were seated immediately! The waiter was so friendly and professional explained all the specials and menu…they took our photo and we had a free tiramisu which my husband had for the first time our dinner was amazing …the only thing I wish I would’ve done was ask for a window table I didn’t know how beautiful that was especially for a special occasion however it was perfect!

    Portions were small, and the prices were high. Our starter dishes were bad, but the main courses were good. (However, not nearly worth the price.) Desserts were good, but nothing was really memorable or fantastic. The ambiance was the WORST. We had made reservations on a Sunday for our wedding anniversary. We wanted a romantic dinner. Two-thirds of the tables were empty. However, they sat us on an outdoor patio surrounded by a thin sheet of plexiglass in the snow-covered parking lot on a 30 degree Cleveland night. My view was of the parking lot except when cars were pulling up at which point it was just bright headlights in my eyes. The chill from the stone floor was so cold that my toes literally went numb. I had to balance my feet on the bottom of the table in an attempt to keep the chill from direct contact with my shoes. I had to keep my winter coat wrapped around my legs for warmth. Thinking I was going to a nice restaurant, I wore heels and a dress. Had I known I'd be sitting outside I would have worn winter boots and long johns. We were sitting on hard patio furniture, nothing that would indicate the $260 price-tag for a dinner for two that we paid. Finally, you're forced to valet even though the parking spaces are literally where you get out of your car- so there's no actual reason to have to valet except that they want to make more money off of you. It's not any more convenient for you. Overall, it was horribly disappointing.

    We started with the Sacchetti which were delicious and then my wife had the saffron risotto with lobster tail and I had the bolognese. This was the third time eating here and it was great, amazing food each time. Our server Thomas was excellent, perfect balance of giving us space and taking care of our table. Never went without water and pacing of the meal overall was good. Definitely recommend.

    The ravioli appetizer and cavatelli dinner were delicious. Half orders were appreciated. The daily special-grouper- needed additional seasoning to enhance the flavor. The servers were attentive, but seemed rushed- both at the bar and in the dining room. It was somewhat noisy and the server had to lean in, but that is likely a part of the energetic ambience. The complimentary tiramisu- and the birthday photo were a wonderful gift! We will return in the summer for Happy Hour!

    Food excellent. Waitress excellent. The host tried to seat us in the outdoor part that was covered with wind protectors. When I objected stating that we made our reservation several weeks ago and that it smelled like smoke, was dark, and not where we wanted to sit, he said "well want do you want me to do?". We were 15 minutes early for our reservation and there was at least one table in the dining room available. He did give us a table in the dining room, for which I thanked him.

    11/22- Not the same—first noticed menu price hike is 25-30%. No problem if it’s the expected great quality. But it wasn’t. Poorly prepared, over spiced and salty…masking all natural flavors. Could not eat it…. Have no idea what has happened to my favorite restaurant. But I won’t go back.
