Luca is a destination, not just a restaurant. The views from the viaduct are gorgeous. The restaurant itself is intimate, simultaneously elegant and eccentric. We had two items off the menu and one special. Each was prepared with care, and absolutely yummy. The wine list is extensive, and we really enjoyed our choice, two bottles worth. And Giuseppe was wonderfully entertaining...the waiter. One issue is the noise level near the kitchen, but we managed. A delightful evening...

We traveled to Cleveland for a trade show and we had 19 people in our group. We were seated promptly and our awesome server, Chuck took our drink orders which arrived quickly. Chuck reviewed the items on the menu as well as the specials and they way he described them made me want to ordered several different ones. Our food arrived hot, fresh and delicious. The portions were so generous no one could clean their plate. If you are in Cleveland you do not want to miss Luca. It is a gem and a treasure all rolled into one! Thank you Luca!!

Reservation was for June 13 at 6:00 pm. At that time there were only a few people in the restaurant. Then it started to get busy.
Waiter must have forgotten us or something as we waited a full hour for service. A 6:00 dinner ended at 8:45. Terrible

We celebrated our 41st anniversary along with those seated nearby also celebrating birthdays and anniversaries. We all had that common bond and enjoyed sharing our memories. The staff made the evening special with a complementary tiramisu dessert and framed picture with personal wishes from the restaurant. We will definitely return soon to this out of the way spot in the flats. What a Cleveland Gem!

We booked last minute and ended up sitting outside. It was raining, but we were under a canopy with heaters, so we were quite comfortable. The service was excellent. Guy took care of us and charmed us with is stories and charisma. The food was fantastic. We had the sauted calamari, pork chop, ossobucco, lamb chop, and veal saltimbocca. It was all wonderful, well seasoned, and rather huge portions. We all took home enough for another meal. We will be back.

Food was absolutely amazing. But the service left something to be desired. We had the impression they were extremely busy and understaffed. While we understand the stress and pressure that causes for the waitstaff, it’s disappointing to pay as much as we did for a meal and not feel special or that our server was interested in our experience.

My nephew came to visit from New York City and he is pretty spoiled as far as restaurants go. He was very impressed by the menu and food quality. He loved the view and the restaurant itself. We both had a very pleasant and enjoyable dinner. I am glad I made the right choice.

Add a dress code. Some people were there as if they just got in from changing the oil in their cars or cutting the grass.

No jeans, colored shirts for men, etc. Much of the crowd was slovenly.

I thought this would be an elegant, romantic, special place to celebrate our 42nd anniversary. I was very disappointed. This place would have been ok for a large group of friends who were more interested in drinking and partying and who were fine with average food heavy on the red sauce and casual service.

Every one of our six meals were impeccably prepared and the flavors were amazing. The views were very nice and added so much to the atmosphere. It was a bit noisy, making conversation difficult. Wait staff was friendly, though slightly slow. Overall, enjoyed the experience very much!

Food was good however disappointed at the salt level of the pasta and sausage dish I ordered. Nice inside but Way Way to noisy. I was 2 feet away from my daughter and had trouble hearing her. Not what I expect from a high end restaurant. It was louder than many sports bars I’ve been in

We visited the restaurant on Mother's Day and it make me remember why I never take my Mom out to eat on that day. The music was very loud so everyone is the restaurant seemed to be yelling. The noise was horrible. Certainly not the cozy experience we had hoped for, and it definitely detracted from the overall experience. The food was fabulous but if I'm spending that much money on food, I would like to be able to talk to my dining partner and for it to be a pleasant experience.

Loved the restaurant! We were there it was my husband‘s birthday we came after theater I had said in my reservation we are going to be possibly late due to the theater. I received a note from OpenTable that we were a no-show in fact we were there! In my notes in my original reservation I had noted it was my husband‘s birthday and I want to table by the window. There was no acknowledgment of my husband‘s birthday and although we lovely table it was not next to the window but we did have a beautiful view. Our server Donald was beyond outstanding attentive and knowledgeable. Everything we ordered was delicious!! The entrée that we ordered came piping hot perfect! I would come back here anytime.

We enjoyed our dining experience very much! Our server was friendly and helpful and answered our questions. I was impressed that since we split an order of the delicious lobster risotto, the orders came out already split—unusual for most restaurants! Great customer service! Same thing for the dessert my friend and I split...very considerate and classy! Even though prices are on the higher end, these little things made the evening worth every penny.
We will return!
