    My date said "it was the nicest restaurant she has ever been in." It was very nice and we will visit again. I had the ravioli and she had the lamb chops. Delicious.

    We arrived early (real early 😬) to our reservation on a busy Saturday night. The hostess was awesome and led us to some bar seats! We ended up staying at the bar and enjoying dinner there! The bartender gave a recommendation on an appetizer. We ordered it and it was outstanding! Our dinners were fabulous! We also enjoyed our bottle of wine! The two female bartenders were fantastic! We will definitely be back! Thanks for a fun night!

    Excellent as always. Food and service top notch. Amazing branzinno and tiramisu was delicious. Only issue was some uneven bar service which could be due to a busy Saturday night.

    Experience didn't match the long-standing hype. Indicated occasion for the dinner but was seated in the tented outdoor seating area, which completely negated the benefit of the restaurant view. Although the sauce was tasty, the veal medallions were tough and quite overcooked. Had really looked forward to finally visiting Luca, but it wasn't outstanding for us.

    The restaurant was excellent. They were ready for our party when we got there. Our server was extremely attentive and knowledgeable. When taking our orders, party of 7, he asked each person if the additional ingredients in the dish were ok or if the person wanted to leave something out. Very impressed with this tactic. Food was wonderful.

    Great food and atmosphere. Many choices on the menu and also a superb wine list. I had business clients from out of state and they were very impressed. We had a window table with a great view of downtown Cleveland. Parking is very limited but not a problem since valet is available. Definitely would recommend Luca, especially if you're entertaining out of town guests and are in the mood for great Italian cuisine.

    My partner and I chose to celebrate our 30th anniversary at Luca. We dined there on a Monday night. We had a table near the kitchen which was fine for us as you could still enjoy the city view. Our server, Gabby, was outstanding, friendly, attentive and helpful with recommendations. We had a cocktail (Paper Plane is excellent) and the sacchetti appetizer which was delicious. My partner enjoyed the wild boar osso bucco and I savored every bite of the lobster ravioli. Gabby recommended a bottle of wine that would be enjoyable with both entrees. We were treated to a piece of Tiramisu, which was scrumptious. The atmosphere, service and food at Luca made this the perfect place for our special night.

    We went to celebrate a birthday and the experience was simply perfection. We came in from Toledo just to eat here. Our server, Jim explained a bunch of the items on the menu as we are rather new to many items. We began with the Sacchetti appetizer and it was absolutely perfect. The scallops were suggested and they were absolutely delicious. The bread they bring out is so good as well. The filet was slightly over cooked, and I wasn’t a huge fan of the sauce but it was still very acceptable. They served a great house made tiramisu as a birthday dessert. I was thrilled by this restaurant and would return if ever in the area.

    We were a party of 6 celebrating my daughter's 16th birthday. There were some positives (large portions, extensive wine list, and picture and tiramisu for the birthday girl), but for the money, I probably wouldn't go back. They crammed us in the first booth by the door with a broken candle, they brought only one loaf of bread and olive oil so we were leaning all over each other to reach it, the service was exceedingly slow (3 hours for dinner!), and food was good, but not terrific. Even the picture they took had one member of our party cut out and another person's eyes closed. It was kind of symbolic of the whole meal - - there was potential and an attempt at making it great, but the execution just wasn't there. All in all, kind of disappointing.

    We got together for 3 Capricorn birthdays. The reservation was set and they gave us the patio seating which I feel they should have asked if that would be ok. No one acknowledged the birthdays even though it was mentioned during the reservation setting. HOWEVER, Luca has delicious food, wonderful service and I will return again and again to have that experience!

    Luca food and service is always delightful. However, we specifically requested to be sat inside because the outside ~tent~ is nowhere near the same ambiance, not a candle or cozy lighting in sight. Frankly I’d consider it a separate restaurant besides the quality of service and food. Disappointing given how far in advance I booked.

    It’s always a pleasure whether West or Cleveland. Cleveland is not as friendly as west in our experience. But food is equally delicious. Paying $8 for extra broth when the dish comes out seemingly broth less is asinine. Either add more flavor to the di mare or amp up the plated broth volume at least 1 oz.
