We ordered the ahi tuna appetizer. I was so excited, yet disappointed . It was sheer piece of tuna and I could see through it. When we went to eat it it tore like paper. Don’t get me wrong it was delicious but come on. I told the server and she said some fancy word for it being so thin. Then the people next to us ordered the same thing and it was a 1/2 inch thick and it was pink. Our was white. I know how expensive tuna is but this was not worth the price, skimpy and thin.
My dinner was had a sweet sauce to it. It was bucatini and shrimp and scallops. Server said red peppers. Well it had green peppers. I did not complain but took them off in a pile. All in all I know better next time.

Sadly, we likely will not return. The place was mobbed and we had to wait for our 7 pm reservation. We were directed to the bar, but there was nowhere to stand without the wait staff bumping into us with plates of food. The inside of the restaurant was so noisy we had to bellow at each other to hear--not fun for my husband who is deaf in one ear. Even though I did not ask for outdoor seating, they put us there. We were freezing and again, the noise level was high. We asked our server to turn up the heating units but she never addressed the issue. The food was very pricey which I don't mind, but I'd rather pay it when I'm not freezing and yelling at my fellow diners.

We were late due to our ride being late. However, our table was still available at 7:30 for our 7:00 reservation. Sat on their patio which was less noisy. Our waitress was excellent, food excellent. I did mention it was my friend’s birthday. They came and took our picture and before we left they brought it in a folder. It was so nice and a great surprise. They brought tiramisu with a candle and believe me it was so delicious. It was such a nice evening. We will definitely return.

I requested an inside table, but none were available, so sitting outside is too loud and not comfortable. The waiter had BO, and felt the need to continually touch us on the shoulder every time he stopped by. the food is very good, but well over priced $200.00 or 2 is not worth it. We will not return.

The food, service and view are spectacular st Lucca, we just wish we could have dined inside. The covered patio was comfortable, but noisy and not the same scenery as a window table in the main dining room. Excellent food!

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..

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.
