We've visited Luca many times before. We are never disappointed. The food is exquisite. Food presentation is excellent, food choices are numerous and food taste is phenomenal. Whether you're going to Luca's for a meal or special occasion you will not be disappointed. Service is excellent. The servers are attentive to your needs. Great at giving suggestions and helpful in any way requested.

I made a reservation for outdoor seating but unfortunately we were seated inside. It was so loud we were unable to hear each other without shouting. People who were waiting to be seated stood next to our table and shouted at each other as well. The food was just okay. Quite overpriced honestly.

Food was amazing, service was attentive but slow. We sat on the patio which I hadn’t realized was essentially in the parking lot. Staff made the birthday experience special, overall I’d highly recommend.

We tried Luca because we had a gift card. Didnt care for the noisy atmosphere as soon as we came in. Reserved table was in corner with no view except a wall and part of the very crowded room. Service was very good and what you would expect. The food was very high priced and not very well prepared and presented. I had the scallop and shrimp special for $45. 2 shrimp 3 scallop with over cooked veggies. My wife had the red snapper special for $50. The fish was good but again poorly presented and badly cooked veggies. I would not go back.

In New Orleans, many of our best restaurants are located in the neighborhoods outside of the French Quarter and are family owned and operated. So, whenever I am in a new town, I look for similarly situated Italian restaurants. Luca fits that bill perfectly. The menu was just as expected (two different osso buco entrees!!) . I had the mussels to start and the wild boar osso buco. Both were excellent. The location is a bit out of the way from the downtown hotels (short Uber ride required) but I would recommend Luca for anyone looking for a good Italian restaurant when in Cleveland on business.

I just want to comment about our table. Our table was located by the window where a crate of wine was stored. We were interrupted twice in order for staff to retrieve wine. Otherwise everything was great.

We love your restaurant, the food and service and views are fabulous. Our only issue is the noise level. It's so difficult to talk when you have dishes and loud clattering around you. We'd always come back, just need to sit farther from the kitchen.

Thank you..

Celebrated my partner's 30th birthday for our first visit with Luca. We had such an incredible meal, our server was delightful, and they went the extra mile to acknowledge our special occasion. We loved it so much, we're going to return for my birthday!

For the price the veal dish had a strange look and was a little tough. It had like circular fatty pieces.

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. In our reservation we requested a room inside by the windows, if possible. When we arrived, there we no tables available inside so we sat in the patio, which was still very nice but not what we wanted. The server warned us that there was an extended wait time for food which we may not have noticed if our wine had come to us in a decent amount of time. The service was very slow. When our food did arrive our pasta dishes were great but, filet steak was over cooked. The manager addressed it with us but at that point, we had been there so long, we wanted to finish our pasta and go. Overall, we just had high expectations that were not met for our occasion.

I had high expectations for Luca Italian Cuisine. Boy, was I ever disappointed.

The service was horrible. Waiting 15-20 minutes for drinks is unacceptable. An exceptional long wait for appetizers and entree's as well.

Given its high-end billing as a premium restaurant for Italian Fare, the food was mediocre at best.

I will not recommend Luca Italian Cuisine. There are far better establishments serving Italian fare with a better bang for the buck.

We waited over 45 minutes after our reservation for a table. No one came over to tell us it would be that long. We requested a table outside but when we were finally sat, it was inside. We didn’t complain because we had already waited so long. It was so cold inside, it was uncomfortable. Our server would disappear for long periods of time. The food was the saving grace for sure. The portions were big and the food tasted delicious.

We requested a table inside however we were seated outside since all window tables were in use. We were seated outside which wasn't terrible but it was a very warm day, so not the best experience. We have been here many times and will continue to come back. The service was a bit slow but the food was terrific.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary there. The veal was not pounded evenly causing the thinner parts to be over cooked. The beet salad was good but my wife thought the beets were a bit hard. A little disappointed after being very satisfied in the past.

Enjoyed this meal a lot but may not come back quickly because Cleveland has so many options that might offer as good food for more value. The parking lot needs to have better signs and make it clear what is valet, I parked my car in what looked like Luca parking only to have to add 10 dollars to my check for my car and my friend.

Classic Italian fare that one usually only finds in Italy. Wild boar shank and linguini was amazing....the depth of flavor was unreal! Sachetti as an appetizer was delicious. We plan to go back soon!

We had a big group of friends together and thought Luca would be perfect with their happy hour. Unfortunately we couldn’t get happy hour prices at a table
In the dining room. But the restaurant let us have happy hour drinks and order off the menu. Nice compromise. We will go back!!

Amazing service and crazy good food as always. But I booked on this app, it says “outdoor table only” but when we got there, major wait for outside. Either get off open table app or figure out inside/outside tables. Otherwise crazy good food and great service
