Luca Italian Cuisine Cleveland
Great menu menu , beautifully prepared and very comprehensive wine list .
This was our first visit to Luca’s. When we arrived, the host had a hard time finding our reservation. We were seated in a booth without the view that everyone talks about. However, the food was excellent and our server, Nida, was great! The gnocchi were delicious, cooked perfectly al dente, with a spicy tomato sauce. My husband had the tagliatelle with clams and shrimp and he really enjoyed it. The bread was to die for! We finished with a slice of Tiramisu which was pretty good, but not amazing. The cappuccino was very good. Please be aware that the valet is $8.00. I think they raised their prices because prior reviews said it was five dollars. Overall, I would definitely go back for the bread and gnocchi and nice atmosphere!
Excellent experience, will return when visiting Cleveland. Highly recommend.
Everything from the service to the food was outstanding! A favorite for sure and can’t wait to go back!
Food was superb and the service excellent.
First time trying Lucas. Had heard good things from others and expectations were pretty high. We had a group of 7 so we tried many things on the menu. Everything was excellent. Service was friendly and attentive. We will be back soon!
Never disappointed by Luca. The food was delicious and the service was awesome and very accommodating! Beautiful location as well!
Wonderfull and amazing service!! Highly recommend this gem!
Wonderful experience. Service-impeccable. Atmosphere and ambience- bustling and friendly. Food- over the top good. Finest of dining-period.
Wonderful atmosphere! We were seated outside and it was very comfortable!! Service was outstanding and food was delicious! The bread and oil dipping was a great treat when seated! Had the filet and risotto outstanding!! Highly recommend!
George was a great server and the food was incredible.
Luca is one our favorites! Authentic Italian cuisine, amazing views and location and great service.
Overpriced for what you get. Underwhelmed by the food, drinks, and service. Location lacked a view. Inside was louder than outside. Outdoor dining was underneath tent. Server was inattentive, sloppy, and very matter-of-fact. But Go Cleveland Guardians!
Food was great and service outstanding.It has become our favorite Italian restaurant.
The server interactions were cold as if they (hostel & waitress) were doing us a favor. The pompous attitude of our server ruined the enjoyment of the meal and we will likely not return nor recommend to others. Too bad but hard to overlook. Great bar - highlight.
Brought my now fiancé to Luca for dinner after I proposed. We were able to enjoy a nice meal on the outside covered area. When we arrived there was an extremely loud party but luckily they soon left. The food was delicious and the service was pretty good. I put engagement celebration in the comment under special occasion when I made the reservation but nothing special was done. That was ok we didn’t mention it when we were at the restaurant. Overall, food was excellent. Never had a bad meal!
First off… some of the best food I’ve ever had! Literally amazing. The menu was a little hard to understand. I understand it’s an Italian menu but I couldn’t understand what any of the dishes were going to turn out to be. I got the Lobster Ravioli and it was incredible! I mean I’m going to have dreams about how delicious it was lol. Beautiful ambiance and very experiential! Perfect for a date night or special occasion. The view is everything 🤩.
Here’s the con… the server wasn’t my favorite. It was worse than having a server at Olive Garden. We asked her questions about the wine and popular dishes and she just seemed annoyed that we were even asking. She then brought me white wine instead of the red I ordered. I let her know politely that I ordered red and she told me that I ordered the white. Honestly if I was at Olive Garden I would let that slide but $15 for a glass of wine… you should get it right or replace it.
The ambiance and food are worth coming back for. I am hoping to find a better server to change my 4 stars into a 5 star review!
Everything was great but it was very noisy and somewhat difficult to talk.
Great meal served by very pleasant server on a beautiful patio. Very good wine list. Presentation was artistic but the patio was very noisy making difficult to speak to others at our table. Unusual for alfresco dining.
Amazing food, and drinks! Some of the best Italian food around!
Love going to Luca and our server Lisa made the evening even better. Delicious food, great atmosphere and wonderful service. Looking forward to our next visit.
Our waiter was very nice and always had a smile on his face..The food was outstanding and the portions are always big enough for leftovers.
We always love Luca - the great atmosphere and great wine and food! Enjoyable.
Very enjoyable experience. Food and service was very good and exceeded expectations.
Our waiter Carrie was very nice. My husband and I had the scallops and they were very good...nice presentation too.
Delicious dinner ! All 6 diners enjoyed their meals to the Max
Attentive servers and service!
They didn’t. Miss a step! ALL IN
Loved everything about Luca, but the occasional noise from pans in the kitchen were quite loud if you are sitting near that open area.
Great food, great wine list, great service, and a very fun atmosphere!!! Will definitely go back and visit this restaurant again!!!
I think this is my New favorite place. The food is outstanding, and the service is fantastic. They were extremely busy and we had to wait for our table despite our reservation, which is unfortunate but no-ones fault. The staff were clearly concerned that we were waiting and couldn’t have been nicer.
The food is exceptional I can’t recommend it enough.
It was very loud and service took a very long time. Our reservations were at 7:30. We did not get seated until 8:15. Left the restaurant at 10pm.
Overall dining experience was fabulous! The staff was great, food was perfect!
Outstanding food and service the three of us all had a pasta dish and they were huge. It’s a matter of fact I ordered a half portion of my Pasta. Literally the best bread I’ve ever had great cocktails and wine. Highly recommend. The view of the flats and two bridges is also a big plus.
Good and server beyond excellent
Shared the halibut special and the rollatini, both were fabulous. Our server Martina was solicitous and friendly.
My first time here and I found the food and service extremely excellent and the view I had was beautiful.
So good! The food is amazing, the wine list is never ending, and everyone was super nice. A must try!
Food was delicious and presentation was amazing! Great server, Lee!! Her recommendations were awesome!
Very attentive waitress! Alerted via opentable that it was for a birthday and requested a view, and they did great and did not disappoint! Food was amazing as wel
