Food was great as usual. However our server was terrible. She was rude, impatient, spilled food and waters without saying anything.

Not typical for this place but certainly took away from what could have been a great night at Luca

Nita, Margaret and the chefs did an amazing job as usual for my wife and I. We celebrate our anniversary and her birthday there every year and we continue to be impressed with the amazing quality this restaurant continues to provide.

AMAZING! Couldn’t have been better! Quality dining experience! We were seated & waited on quickly. Our waiter was present & continuously checked on us. Our water never got less than half empty. Our orders were put in & came out fast. Food was great & nice size portions. Cant wait to return!

Our server was not great with a poor attitude. We were there to celebrate a birthday which I put on the reservation and she didn’t even acknowledge it once. Never had that poor of service there before. Very disappointed

Dinner was lovely sitting on the patio. Overall the service was good but once they got busier it slowed. Drinks and wine from the bar were very slow from the very beginning.

We have been going to Luca for years but this time our experience was not favorable. I am sure that due to the fact that there is a shortage of staff that all restaurants are having to find a way to remain open.
We arrived at our reservation time and had to wait about 40 minutes to get a table. Once seated our waitress was attentive. Once she took our entre orders we waited well over an hour to be served. It was not fault of our server.
We will return in the future and hope that this was a one time occurrence.

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!

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!

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!

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!

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.
