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!

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!

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!!

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.

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!

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

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.

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!

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.

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
