The service was very attentive and fun and the ambience is amazing. My dinner special was very good and our salad and appetizers were great but my boyfriend's fish was very disappointing. Neither one of us had ever had parrot fish (despite extensive experience travelling abroad) and were told it was a "white fish." So of course one would assume flaky and tender like a sea bass or grouper. No, this fish had to be cut with a steak knife! It was hard and tasteless. It retrospect we should have sent it back but I would recommend the next time it is on the menu that the server explain it is not your typical white fish and has a texture more akin to a steak.

We really like the offers from the menu. I got a pasta dish that I don´t recall the name, but it was definitely worth the price. About this point, the wine list is definitely overpriced, but that is an issue in all American restaurants that I know.

One of our favorite places. Food is always excellent. Wine list has great variety of Italian wines. Very nice Sommelier who helped us pick a great one. Only negative would be how dark it was. Better lighting would not only illuminate the menus, for easier reading, but also the wonderful food I’m sure the chef took great care to plate.

Celebrated my finances birthday here last night. This was my first time at Lucas. We ordered the lobster risotto which was amazing, but even splitting it we couldn't finish it. We also had the beef tartar for an appetizer and a nice bottle of wine. They gave us a free birthday dessert which was very nice.

My fiancé and I ate at Luca to celebrate our engagement. It was the best Italian meal I have ever had in my life (we are both Italian, so that's saying a lot!). I had the cavatelli, and it was absolutely delicious. The pancetta really compliments this dish. My fiancé had the bolognaise, which consisted of pasta, sausage, duck and veal. It was also mouth watering. We will definitely be back in the near future!

Celebrated my birthday at Luca’s. Our waiter, Donald, was amazing. Drinks are delicious and food was out of this world. Ambiance is great, but it’s very loud and hard to have a conversation. Other than that, this place is wonderful!!!!!

Our waiter was the perfect level of service without being intrusive. We were celebrating a birthday and this was he perfect spot. They took a picture and gave it in a personal frame to my wife. All the pasta meals were delicious we shared everything family style. The chicken was decent but it’s chicken. We will definitely return soon.

While the food was spectacular, we were seated in an extremely dark corner right by the kitchen entrance. So not only was one guest constantly bumped by servers, but we had to use cell phone flashlights to read the menu. That table shouldn’t be allowed for seating especially when you make a reservation two months in advance. Service was fine and food was sublime, but the table nearly ruined the night.

My daughter and I both have to eat gluten free. It is the absolute best restaurant pasta dish we have had in 5 years. The shrimp and lobster in my dish were very large, and not broken pieces. My son and husband both thoroughly enjoyed their dishes as well. The wine was top-notch.

Fantastic dinner experience. Chuck served us and explained everything in detail, very important with gluten and fish issues in our party. View of the river and flats is phenomenal. Eggplant app was ok, but the Ossobucco wild boar melted in my mouth. 8 minutes to The Palace for On Your Feet with a satisfied belly - night to remember.

Very average serve. Salad plates sat for a long time before they were taken away . ( I had to flag him down to take them away). Sever did not refill water glasses until we asked. Serve didn't ask if we wanted another round of drinks. Felt like he forgot about us after he took out order .
