Linda provided courteous and professional service. Mussels, calamari and eggplant appetizers were excellent. Large dinner portions of filet, halibut and bolognese that were delicious.

First and foremost the food was delicious. If I was just reviewing the food this would be a 5 star review. We went to Luca for our anniversary, and it was noted on our reservation. We were seated at a tiny table next to the front door. We had a large very loud table on one side and a small table to the other side. We had to yell to hear each other, but that wasn't the problem. The server taking care of the tables to either side of us was carrying on long in-depth conversations with the patrons while his butt was in our our faces. He seemed clueless that he was disrupting our meal. This went on throughout our entire dinner. Our server was average at best. Next time I'll ask for a table with a view.

First time at Luca. Chuck our waiter made us feel welcome from the get go. He greeted us with a Happy Anniversary. He explained the menu options and specials. He was attentive but not pushy.

The entire staff were good and the overall dining experience was special.

We will be back and look forward to going to Luca West when it opens as we live in Avon.

What wonderful ambience in this charming spot that overlooks Downtown Cleveland. I brought a small business group here ( they represent a major, high quality restaurant chain), and they were completely blown away. Luca is just one more restaurant that makes Cleveland an impressive city to out of town visitors. I’m already booking a reservation for Birthday and Anniversary dinners.

Luca just keeps getting better and better. We requested a window table for 4, and got the wonderful corner table...beautiful Cleveland views on all sides.. and they even held it for us with our being late due to road construction. Thank you! ( I did call ahead). Service was impeccable per usual. The Lobster Risotto was cooked perfectly and enough for 2 people to split. The veal tortellini and breaded veal chop - both delicious and generous portions. There are many great places to eat in Cleveland, but few have it all... beautiful location with stunning city skyline views, consistently great food, impeccable ( did I mention that before) service, and an elegant upscale atmosphere. When my daughters from Chicago and Denver come to town, there is only one place they want to go... Luca.

Wish we hadn’t waited so long to head to Luca! The atmosphere and the views immediately said this place was special - as soon as you walk in. Food options were winners for us from the stuffed artichoke app and the Tuscan bean soup, the salads and the pastas. Lamb chops were melt in your mouth and done exactly as requested. Wait staff knew exactly how to wait on us....efficient, helpful and very pleasant. T

My boyfriend and I visited Luca for a date night on Saturday, October 14, 2017. It was a highly recommended place from my employer, Mr. Thomas J. Scanlon. It was the best meal I've ever had! We had mussels and lobster stuffed artichoke for an appetizer, I had the filet with lobster tail and my boyfriend had the duck. Everything was amazing, from the service and appetizers to the entrees and dessert. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for an amazing meal with a sophisticated atmosphere and picturesque views of the City of Cleveland. It is, hands down, my new favorite restaurant and I will definitely be visiting again as soon as I have the opportunity to!

We were with another couple and we all felt the restaurant was highly overrated. Our reservation was at 8:00pm and we were seated at 8:30pm. The waitress instead of making you feel special made us feel as if she was doing us a favor to wait on us. Quantity (gigantic portions) versus quality.
