Excellent service from the minute we called for help finding the location to a final goodbye from the valet attendant who returned our car. Rated ambience 4stars as our booth was located next to a service area but the beautiful views and delicious food certainly distracted us from the activity and noise. Serving sizes were huge and the Branzino is deboned at table side. Will return on our next trip to Cleveland.

All food courses were very good, from excellent braising to fresh crisp greens. Music choice and layout of restaurant made for a very noisy dinner, having to forcibly raise my voice just to converse w my table and waiter during the whole meal.

Always a pleasure to dine at Luca on the Superior viaduct. This time was no exception. The starter was delicious, the drinks were made to perfection and we had two specials, both were fantastic, stuffed flounder and lobster risotto along with an order of Vitello tortellini.
The fabulous view of the city was heightened by the NFL Draft and the Terminal Tower changing colors depending on which team was making their draft picks.
Lola and her staff are pros at making the evening exceptional.
We will be back.

Service was fantastic at every turn. Found us a table with a view, waiter was helpful, wine manager was delightful. Felt like we were special to them. Food selection was unique and incredibly tasty. Cannot go wrong. We had four dishes and all were superb.

Our second visit to Luca and again, a great meal and overall fun time. First visit was for my birthday back in March, and this past Tuesday April 27 was for my husband's 50th birthday celebration. I had a Negroni, my husband had the Manhattan, appetizers are delicious, entrees amazing, and the Tiramisu divine. Our server was very busy but attended to us at all times. Their wine list is a good variety, and the manager opened our bottle. We had the Trefethen Dragon's Tooth Red blend. An overall great dinner and we'll be back soon for their happy hour.

My family went for my son’s 21st birthday celebration. Everything was spectacular. The music was way too loud, especially in addition to the busy restaurant background. But the rest of the experience was perfect!

Always outstanding food and view. Restaurant was jammed on a Saturday night. A bit of a wait but worth it for our great table. Restaurant was still mostly full at 10 when we were leaving.

The food was delicious but the prices were a little high. We were there on a Sat. night . I would go back for Happy Hour or during the week when you could get 1/2 pasta orders.
The seafood dish with , muscles, shrimp, lobster, and clams was DELLICIOUS! Next time,
I would do a meal on that, bread, and a cocktail!

The bread was delicious and super hot. Most of our meals were also severed super hot. It was very loud. Our table cloth, silverware and wine glass were dirty. The server was nice but, for the menu prices, did not have enough time to dedicate to our table. Some of the food was good and other parts were disappointing. For the price I would choose a different dining experience next time.

The food and service during dining was decent, but nothing amazing... My main complaint was that they would not seat us even though we had a reservation. We had an 8pm reservation and showed up at 755pm. We were told it would be a short wait and directed to stand in the hallway area. A short time later, a different employee asked if anyone that was waiting would like to sit at the bar for a drink while waiting for their table. We took them up on this offer but advised we still wanted a table. 35 mins later we inquired with the receptionist and they claimed they did not know what happened but we would be seated shortly. 20 mins after that (nearly an hour after our reservation time) I re-approached the receptionist to inquire and was advised they were still working on it but might have something available in the outdoor tent area shortly... The outdoor tent area look like a cheap expansion and was WAAAYY too crowd, obviously not separated from other parties and very cramped looking. We opted to sit at the bar and ordered, leaving us very disappointed for the evening. If we were told that initially we could have ordered an hour earlier.
The entire restaurant had plexiglass partitions, but that was it for Covid regulations. They appeared to operating at or above 100% occupancy
