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 .

Our food was incredible!! I was worried the portions would be small since that tends to be the case at fancier places but our portions were perfect. Their wine selection is great and the dessert menu is to die for! I had a wonderful birthday dinner there with my husband.

Food was great. Our reservation was for 7 pm, by 8:05 the server was giving us our check—and that includes the time for re-making an entree and having a dessert. I get it was a Friday night, but the place is too nice to feel like you are being rushed out.

Great food. Great waiter but service a little slow secondary to high volume. Very loud, so much so that it was difficult to hold conversation at the table.

 (Pittsburgh)·Dined on December 1, 2017

My friend and I were in Cleveland for the Andrea Bocelli concert and decided to make it a 100% Italiano night by dining at Luca. Our reservations were at 5:45 which we thought would give us plenty of time to get to the show by 8 pm. We were greeted by a friendly, professional waitress who asked if we were attending the Bocelli show and ensured she would get us out in plenty of time. We ordered a bottle of wine which she promptly brought us. Shortly thereafter a pretentious, loud waiter came over to tell us the specials if we “hadn’t overheard him telling the other table what they were.” After I assured him that we hadn’t been listening to what he said to the other table, he told US the specials after which he said, “remember, this is a REAL Italian restaurant and they like to take their time since everything is from scratch. I recommend that you don’t get salads or you might be late for the concert.” I told him that we really wanted salads and he said of course we could get whatever we wanted but it might make us late. Feeling annoyed, fortunately the female waiter returned to us to take our order. We ignored the male waiter’s RIDICULOUS request to not order salads and we each got the special beet salad with goat cheese. They salads were brought out quickly and they were delicious. Before that, we enjoyed some beautiful crusty Italian bread with olive oil with our wine. For my dinner I had the “sachet to all tartufo bianco” which was sublime. It reminded me of a truffle ravioli I had in Florence years ago, and this may have even been better. My friend enjoyed her lobster risotto and we split the tiramisu for dessert. Despite what the arrogant waiter told us, we were out of the restaurant by 7:15, got an uber and were in our seats at the Q before 8 pm. And if anyone tells me I CAN’T do something, chances are I’m going to do it anyway. Despite the annoying waiter, the meal was excellent and far exceeded my expectations.

Expensive
We were told one price for corkage fee and charged an other
We brought two bottles of wine and it was significant
Althea the service and ambiance was excellent, the food was not worth the price of the meal
There were 7 of us and we all agreed.

First and foremost the food was delicious. If I was just reviewing the food this would be a 5 star review. We went to Luca for our anniversary, and it was noted on our reservation. We were seated at a tiny table next to the front door. We had a large very loud table on one side and a small table to the other side. We had to yell to hear each other, but that wasn't the problem. The server taking care of the tables to either side of us was carrying on long in-depth conversations with the patrons while his butt was in our our faces. He seemed clueless that he was disrupting our meal. This went on throughout our entire dinner. Our server was average at best. Next time I'll ask for a table with a view.

First time at Luca. Chuck our waiter made us feel welcome from the get go. He greeted us with a Happy Anniversary. He explained the menu options and specials. He was attentive but not pushy.

The entire staff were good and the overall dining experience was special.

We will be back and look forward to going to Luca West when it opens as we live in Avon.

What wonderful ambience in this charming spot that overlooks Downtown Cleveland. I brought a small business group here ( they represent a major, high quality restaurant chain), and they were completely blown away. Luca is just one more restaurant that makes Cleveland an impressive city to out of town visitors. I’m already booking a reservation for Birthday and Anniversary dinners.

Luca just keeps getting better and better. We requested a window table for 4, and got the wonderful corner table...beautiful Cleveland views on all sides.. and they even held it for us with our being late due to road construction. Thank you! ( I did call ahead). Service was impeccable per usual. The Lobster Risotto was cooked perfectly and enough for 2 people to split. The veal tortellini and breaded veal chop - both delicious and generous portions. There are many great places to eat in Cleveland, but few have it all... beautiful location with stunning city skyline views, consistently great food, impeccable ( did I mention that before) service, and an elegant upscale atmosphere. When my daughters from Chicago and Denver come to town, there is only one place they want to go... Luca.
