I especially love the inclusion of pistachios. For our entrees, I had the pappardelle, and my husband had the veal parmigiana. Both were excellent. Our plates were empty. Our server was polite, and attentive.

Our waitress, Denise, was a pleasure to deal with. Figs with prosciutto were mouthwatering, and the meatballs were sweet, moist and well covered with provolone. Clams and muscles were fresh and in a divine red sauce, Veal parmigiana was tender, and the meat stew was so tasty and plentiful; we had to take some home. Finished with one of the creamiest vanilla gelatos ever!

This is perhaps because It is a small family owned business. I don’t mind supporting that at the end of the day. The ambiance is nice and the service is good, but you would think for the price it would be breathtaking and impeccable. Would definitely return, but not as often as I would like. Unfortunately, I feel there are better overall experiences at that price point.

Brandon took care of me on previous occasions with consistently high hospitality standards but everyone else is also very friendly and accommodating. Lucas has great ambiance showcasing Ischia wall art, beautiful ceramic pottery and rustic dining furniture. There is ample parking outside. Lucas is BYOB adding to the value. Liquor store is conveniently located two stores down the strip. Lucas is a true gem!

The dishes you will find here are beyond the ordinary. The "Fico" appetizer (figs wrapped in prosciutto) and the fried calamari hit the mark. The entrees that followed, squid ink pasta with seafood (Polypus) and the cavatelli with chicken (Valentino), did the same. The only downside to this spot is that the tables for two are a bit cramped but this is soon forgotten when the food arrives. Can't wait to return to try another menu surprise.

The capesante and the pappardelle are my favorites. Homemade pasta is great and the bruschetta a nice beginning to a meal.

That does not include the take out pizzas we indulge in. The food is delicious and the servings ample. The wait staff is very attentive, but never intrusive. It has earned quite a reputation through word of mouth, so make sure to make reservations, especially on the weekend. The pappardelle (bolognese) and capesante are two favorites, but the menu is extensive, so don't limit your choices. Luca's remains a fine dining experience in a little strip mall.

Was impressed with the ambience, felt very authentic. Food was pretty good. My issue was the service. Took the server a while to come to the table after we were seated. It was busy at the time so not a huge deal. However, we ordered a half bottle wine and the server brought it out with two glasses and poured for us then left the rest of the bottle on the table. After she walked away I went to have a drink and there was lip marks on my glass. I told the server and she said she will take care of it. She pours the wine out of the glass into a new glass. I told her I don't feel comfortable with that as I don't think the glass was cleaned properly as obviously it wasn't, but she said "it was probably cleaned but just the lip marks remained" I told her I can't drink that and all she did was offer to give me half off on the bottle and bring me a new half bottle. With today's concerns over covid, you would expect sanitization as priority number one. So what she did was very careless and I'd have been turned off even regardless of Covid. I shouldn't have had to pay for a half bottle, she should have brought a new bottle and apologized. Other than that, my wife and I did enjoy the food and the environment. We would have loved to enjoy tiramisu for dessert also, but unfortunately they were out of it.

Our server Brandon was attentive, friendly and offered great suggestions for entree items. He made sure our food was served in a timely manner so we did not have to rush and had time to relax before the show. The calamari appetizer was fresh and cooked to perfection. The warm bread was also perfect. For dinner, we had the sea bass, branzino, Luca seafood and seared scallops. All were fabulous!! We will definitely be back.

On top of that, they charged 3.5% extra for using the credit card. The food was just ok, nothing great to justify the prices.

While we had reservations, we still had to wait nearly an hour to get seated. Well, that was the worst of it, the food came out quick and tasted amazing. The service was friendly and attentive even after a long holiday shift. Thank you to the staff and the chef for a wonderful experience.

Even though the wait was very long due to Valentine’s Day- the food was good enough that we didn’t mind. Also the Barberra wine was fantastic for a decent price.

We actually asked to have our table moved to a different location because one of our chairs was in the mainstream of server flow. They obliged.

Our server this time was Luca who was very attentive throughout the meal. We've enjoyed all the appetizers, entrees and desserts and don't have just one item we keep going back to, all are very good. Recommend making reservations especially on the weekends. This is BYOB or you can make a selection from their local wines available on the menu.
