We had the Cannelton Di Vitallo & Ossobucco Di Cinghiale both were excellent. For desert the Tiramisu also excellent. Can't wait to go back to try some of the other fantastic looking dishes.

This is a fantastic Italian restaurant!! Our waitress was great and informed us of the nightly chef specials which we tried of course. Yummmm. A little difficult to find the restaurant, but definitely worth it!

Excellent food with an outstanding menu at a reasonable price point. Our server knew the extensive wine list and helped with the selection. The outside atmosphere was perfect on a gorgeous evening. We were celebrating a birthday and it was a nice touch that not only was dessert comped but the staff took a photograph and put it in a nice card as a keepsake. This may be the best restaurant in town.

Anniversary dinner. Lisa was an amazing server. She didn’t hurry us with our selections or try to speed up the flipping of her table. My choice of the Secchetti was amazing! My husbands choice was flat on taste. My fault for directing that direction. But dessert more than made up for the choice. We will definitely come again when in town.

I went on trip advisor to look for a quiet restaurant and Luca popped up.
The atmosphere at Luca is far from quiet...especially near the kitchen.

The man Busser/server assistant came up and told us to be quiet because we were being loud. I believe right after we said cheers to the birthday girl. Very odd and unsettling. We left shortly after! Love the food and manager/server.

The food was amazing. I have had many bolognese sauces before and this was the best and plenty of it! Can’t say the pappardelle was the best I ever had but I wouldn’t let that bring any of it down. Arugula salad could have used a little more dressing, but the fresh tomatoes were wonderfully selected and the bomb! Great wine and the perfect Aperol Spiritzes. Service was very good. This is on our list for again and again!

Billed as an upscale "smart casual" restaurant, the staff and management does not enforce that "code". We had six people seated next to us that were inappropriately dressed, loud profanity, argumentative and nothing happened until we complained. Even then all that was offered was to move us which was too late because our meals were served. Nothing was done to resolve the cause of the problem which could have been done at the door. No enforcement of their advertised standards.

Overall, Our dining experience at Luca was excellent. My lower rating were for 2 reasons: 1) the reception and wait staff were not masked indoors, which is recommended with the current COVID status in Ohio; 2) the prices for entrees were excessively high. The food preparation and presentation was very good but not worth the very high prices. It is recommended that the owners/staff remember, this restaurant is in Cleveland, not New York or LA.

We were greeted warmly on arrival and seated immediately at a table of our liking. Waiter came promptly to take drink orders. We were served hot bread with excellent olive oil for dipping. We shared an appetizer of sautéed squid with white wine and cherry tomato sauce. We both had a chef’s special - one, halibut with tomatoes and olives and the second, scallops served over fettuccini. Everything was outstanding! On our next trip to Cleveland we will be back.

excellent meal from start to finish! the bread is just perfect. crusty on the outside and soft on the inside. we had the sachetti and beef carpaccio appetizers. both were delicious. the beef melts in your mouth. the sauce for the pasta bundles was so yummy we wanted to put it on everything. for main courses we both had veal - chop and saltimbocca. fantastic, although we would recommend the chop over the saltimbocca. great server too. i think his name was ken/kenny?

only issue we had was the fruit flies. they were everywhere. our wine, our water, our food. we gave up trying to bat them away. we had the farthest end table at the back of the covered patio, and i'm not sure if the location of the table had anything to do with it. maybe a candle or a fan would be helpful to keep the flies away?
