As always Luca does not disappoint. The entire experience is wonderful. George is one of the best servers in Cleveland and understands how to make an evening special. The wine list is one of the best in Cleveland as is the Italian food.

We had a perfect meal. The meal and staff added to the enjoyment of the evening but the quality of the food was above and beyond.

Four friends vacationing in the Cleveland area had a taste for Italian food. We found what we were looking for at Luca Italian Cuisine. From the moment we walked in we were cared for by George our water. He was attentive and helpful as well as knowledgeable. Our orders of pappardelle with bolognese, a pan seared branzino in champagne sauce that was boned at the table, and shrimp and little neck clams served over hand made tagliatelle . All were beautifully prepared and delicious. Desserts of creme brûlée and panna cotta topped off the meals. Both were rich and delightful. George made sure our wine and water glasses were full, offered advice when asked and was always present but unobtrusive. The staff at Luca know how to make you feel appreciated and glad you came.

We enjoyed our Father's Day dinner and the food was very tasty. It was very nice to have someone come over and help select a glass of wine for dinner. The portions too were excellent.

Our dining experience was very good with friendly and attentive service and well prepared and plentiful meals. The lamb chops were prepared as requested and served as a trio with an excellent risotto. The Ossobuco Di Cinghiale was a large portion and served over well seasoned linguine. The menu is accompanied by a nice selection of high quality wines at various price points. The only disappointment to our meal was our dessert selection of cannoli which were very hard, rather tasteless, and not equal to quality of our meal choices.

Luca was very busy for a Wednesday evening, none the less, we had excellent service from the hostess to the coffee service at the end of the evening. Our waitress Amber, was lovely, gave us perfect suggestions, and impeccable replacing glasses silverware and kept the table clear of finished plates without making us feel rushed. The downtown location and Luca West are my favorites.

I booked the reservation indicating that we were celebrating a birthday ... and requested a table with a view. We had to wait an additional 30 min to get a table with a view, and there was no mention of the birthday celebration anytime during our meal or when dessert was offered... disappointed ...

Fantastic! Celebrating family birthday, everything was top notch. Our server was one of the kindest, nicest and genuine people I’ve encountered in the industry, would go back and ask for specifically, she made the occasion even better, especially for my son who was celebrating. Food was delicious. Have not been here in a while but will definitely be returning SOON!

Food was delicious. I got the gnocchi, and it seemed like it was piping hot the whole time I ate it. The waiter was very nice and helpful and made sure to check on us multiple times throughout the visit. The place had a great view and the inside was very well decorated and clean!

Food was fantastic like always. Service was a little sketchy this time. They were out of one of their staple entrées, and the servers did not seem to be concerned with social distancing at all.

We dined in true Italian style. Antipasti, primi, and then secundi. The oso buca vitello is outstanding. The only disappointment was the duck which was a little dry. Fabulous tiramisu. Please note that the menu is not exactly the same as Luca West.

Lovely atmosphere. Food is amazing (the only downside is that the portions are rather large!). Had an excellent bottle of wine. Our service was actually top-notch, but they seem to be suffering from the same staff shortages everyone else is dealing with (due to COVID). So, this night it was just a little slow, but we think our waiter had many tables. Great views of the city. Perfect for any special occasion.

A 40th birthday and a chance to celebrate going out to dinner! It was a loud buzzy night with many people doing the exact same thing. Great fun, great food and service on a very rainy blustery night. Thank you, Luca!
