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.

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!

Luca is arguably our favorite restaurant in the Cleveland area. The food is always out of this world and the service is second to none. These people take food seriously and want you to enjoy your time with them.

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

Made reservations almost month in advance still had to wait in a server and have work in the industry for ever. When we asked how long they said they didn’t know Made us stand out side allowed us to eventually go to bar told we were able to get a table it was only a two top and there was 4 reservation. You have to valet park took forever to get car back. Every one seemed to stare at us because we have tattoos. My friend got a 70 dollar pasta dish and it wasn’t that great mine was okay but the noodles were over cooked , then after waiting forever to order and get our food they asked us to leave to use our table lol , just wasn’t a great experience felt like I was treated differently then other people in there our server was the sweetest tho

Waited an hour just to get my order taken while everyone else seated around me was taken care of and catered to while all the servers just walked past me and didn’t acknowledge me in my seat. I was very embarrassed and had to flag down a higher up just to finally get service. I left feeling sad and like I should’ve gone elsewhere to be honest.

I don’t normally choose Italian food when going out, but I am so glad we went to Luca’s! The food was absolutely amazing, starting with the fresh, warm bread and herb oil, and ending with the Lobster ravioli. I was nervous to choose this dinner not ever having anything that had squid ink as part of it, but this was absolutely delicious! This will be a must visit when we come back to Cleveland.

We were a party of six dining at 7:00pm on a Thursday. We were seated immediately. The service was excellent, attentive but not hovering. We are not a demanding group service wise, but do like our food. Each of us ordered a different appetizer and entree. They were all delicious. I enjoyed the Branzino (I ate the whole fish) and everyone else enjoyed the pasta dishes and my husband had the pork chop. He was impressed with how perfectly it was cooked considering how thick it was. I recommend valet parking. We will return.
