Luca Italian Cuisine Cleveland
My wife and I appreciated the wonderful wait staff and finely prepared (though over-priced) food, but the music and noise levels were far too raucous for comfortable conversation. If all of these features meet your criteria for a great dining experience, then this is the ideal restaurant for you. Enjoy!
This was the most amazing meal and beautiful place and the service was amazing! We were so pleased and will be back!!!
We have been to Italian restaurants all over the world and Luca was absolutely one of the best we have ever been to. The service was wonderful and the food outstanding. Do not miss this restaurant if you are in Cleveland!
Everything about our meal at Luca was fabulous! Food, service, ambiance, view...it was all amazing. It turned our graduation celebration into a real event. The best part of the evening was our server, Amanda. She was fabulous and is a blessing to anyone she takes care of there!
Definitely a special occasion type of place due to the cost. Delicious food, excellent service and great ambiance.
Luca is by far, my favorite fine dining restaurant in the Cleveland area. Friendly service. Outstanding cuisine that never disappoints.
Our server was great— timely, charming, informative. The atmosphere was nice. We ate in the outdoor area adjacent to the building. We did enjoy sitting there despite it not being quite as nice as the dining room. The food, however, was somewhat bland. I had the white bean soup and couldn’t put enough salt on it to make it have flavor. The rest of the meals were ok but no one really raved over them. I would go back but would likely give some very specific instructions and modifications to the chef.
It was so loud on the covered patio that we are now mad at ourselves for not leaving. We pay a lot of money for a nice dinner and what we got felt like an assault! The food and staff are wonderful. But the atmosphere was terrible! There were 2 tables near us and everyone was shouting over each other! I don't know the answer for you but we will never agree to eat in that area again! The worst!!
Went for the first time with my wife and mother. Fantastic meals, service and ambiance. Highly recommended to everyone
My daughters 18th bday which I made the restaurant aware went totally unnoticed by server! Actually Amanda our server was quite bitey and rude! No desserts were offered to my daughter no mention of heir 18th!
Amazing! Cant wait to go back! Made a reservation for mothers day was sat upon arrival, service was great, food was delicious.
First time to Luca - wonderful experience. Can't wait to get back.
Perfect from start to finish
Excellent food. Service was a bit overwhelmed in a Sunday early evening. It is pretty pricey for what it is.
Server was awesome, the choices he recommended were fantastic! The atmosphere was great, the food was well prepared, fresh, and delicious, overall a very enjoyable dining experience. Service was great. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Great way to spend our anniversary
Presentation of food very good. Taste disappointing. Soup was flat. Really no taste needed salt and seasonings. Main courses also not up to par. Service was good . Waiter was attentive. We did not comment on the food when we were there.
Excellent food and great service! Thank you!
Amazing! Believe our sever was Chuck. He was fantastic and really added to what was already a great dining experience.
Small wedding reception with Friends!
The food was outstanding!!!!!
Absolutely perfect in every way!
Will be back soon...
If you don't reserve a table indoors, you will be ushered to a "patio" table... basically sitting in the street surrounded by plastic with a dramatic view of cars being parked and people walking around. Negative ambiance but still with the price.
Food was so-so at best and not at all what you'd expect after reviewing the website. Best thing about dinner was the bread!
The people did an excellent job and the food was wonderful. No question that it is a great value because the quality was outstanding
Food was good with the exception of an over cooked steak. It happens and is not usually a big deal... but the fact it took almost 20 minutes to recook it was a big deal. My party was done eating well before I even had my meal in front of me. They took it off the bill but still wasn’t an enjoyable experience
Looking forward to going back, but like all restaurants these days it is loud...
Best restaurant in the city.....Reminds me of Italy!!!!!
Excellent service great food. Definitely a “ special occasion “ Resturant.
Arrived on time for our reservation and was told our table was being set and it'd just be a few moments. 30 minutes later and still no table. Had to ask for the manager to intervene and she was very apologetic. Sasha immediately gave us a table with a view and offered to cover our first round of drinks.
Food wasn't that impressive for the cost. 85% of the menu items had seafood in them even though it is an Italian restaurant.
So glad we chose Luca!! Exciting, romantic atmosphere with gorgeous views of Cleveland’s downtown and the river. Service was excellent, food delicious, creative and plentiful. Five stars!
They really made our anniversary special! Great food and service
Food and restaurant setting were great. Service was good. It was a little loud, but not excessive.
Talk about the perfect night! The atmosphere and the view of the city made for an amazing start. Add the Lobster risotto and lobster ravioli with well crafted cocktails and I’m not sure there could be a better romantic date night. Thank you for the unexpected!
Great place, great food,,, hard to get to and you pretty much need to valet
Birthday dinner was excellent!
We went for my birthday and we’re not very impressed. Reservation which was made. Few weeks in advance was for 8:30, we weren’t sat until closer to 9. Overall the food was very good. Restaurant was so dark you couldn’t see the menu.
I had made our reservation on 4/3 (10 days in advance) for my wife’s birthday dinner and had requested a table with a view of downtown. Not only were we not seated in a table by the window, but no seating options were available anywhere in the main dining area where the windows are when we arrived. We were given the options of (1) waiting a half hour beyond our reservation time or (2) sitting in the very high traffic area by the hostess stand (we went with the high traffic option as we had a commitment after dinner). I'm not sure what the point is of making reservations well in advance if no table is reserved. However, I would note that the food and service were both great for dinner.
Loud, rushed to turn table, overbooked, fire alarm triggered during evening
We have been trying to get in for many many months. We just wait too long to make a reservation, but headed down around six on a Saturday and ended up eating at the bar. The rush came at seven and we had a wonderful meal and drinks. Tip: make your reservations at least a week before hand if you want to table
Food was beyond excellent. Although the wait staff was attentive and helpful, the entree took a long time to arrive. That said, it was worth the wait and superb. View was amazing and we will return.
Great food and service. However, hard to converse at our table due to high volume of the live music.
