Food and service were great quality. Would go again.
Wonderful food, wonderful staff!
Food was a bit bland but given we had gone on V day, I guess it was good. All in all recommended.
One of the best places I’ve been too. Food was amazing, service was great. The food took a little while to come out but it was worth the wait. Very impressed, I’ll be back for sure.
I went here with my girlfriend for Valentine’s Day and had an amazing time. The food was amazing and the service was great.
The restaurant is small and cozy. We had appetizers salad and entrees and they were all excellent. Waiter was very attentive.
Great food and great service. Will definitely revisit to try other menu.
The meat stew was fantastic. Highly recommend! Good date night place.
Delicious food as always with extremely unique and innovative ingredient combinations that compliment one another perfectly. The atmosphere is always great as well as the service. We discovered this restaurant over the summer and continue to come back! We found our new Italian date night spot and could t be happier
Our server Chris was fantastic. Great recommendations for the food and his personality was excellent. Don’t miss out on the Bruschetta. Out of this world. We both loved our dinners and then the creme brûlée was a perfect finish. I would highly recommend and we will be back!!
Luca's is a BYOB gem. The food is first rate and the menu extensive but not too large as to be intimidating or make you question their ability to delivery quality fare.
The staff is also great, prepare to be pampered.
Luca’s always does a super job. I was making an employment offer and chose Luca’s for lunch. I’ve been here a number of times and they did not disappoint. The food and service were excellent. It is also a BYO, which is a plus. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Very quiet and nice light music. Very enjoyable for me and my girls!
Food was outstanding as always with plenty to bring home.
Simply outstanding. Great service and well crafted food.
Our waiter was very attentive to our needs. We shared the special mushroom appetizer, which was delicious. We also shared the farro salad. It's a personal favorite. Our entrees were so good and plentiful. We are having leftovers for dinner tonight.
As always, Lucas service and food was amazing
A very different type of restaurant and Italian food. Some good, some not so good. Really didn't care for one of the appetizers and it wasn't even touched and the lasagna Marsala was like eating rubber bands with the mozz and noodles over cooked. No offering from anyone to change it or even take it from our bill. not too professional. salad was good, other apps were good and veal was good. the "exotic" stuff, not so good
We love this spot. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. The menu choices have many items not seen in other places. The bread is absolutely to die for!!! We started with the figs, stuffed with cheese and wrapped in prosciutto with a balsamic glaze...delicious ! The entrees were veal parm and chicken Bianca, white sauce with cheese, asparagus and pistachios on top of pasta. It helps the wallet that it is BYOB but they have option to purchase from a New Jersey winery and the choices and prices look interesting.
My husband and I have lived in the area for years. We regret not trying this place out sooner. The food was absolutely delicious 😋 the wait staff was very attentive. The cheesecake was the best we’ve ever had!!! We will definitely be back, and highly recommend a visit if you haven’t yet!
Outstanding meal as usual.
This is my wife's and my favorite spot for a special dinner.
This place is everything the reviews say it is. Great food and great service
I been here before and thing were much better. Service was slow and food was just OK. Restaurant was near empty and we were always waiting for the server. Food was good, but not exceptional, but still expensive. Chick Parm was somewhat dry. I will try it again and hope it gets better.
My husband and I got engaged at Luca's 15 years ago and the food was just as good if not better than I remember. The wait staff was very attentive and polite as well. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a great dining experience.
This is a really neighborhood find! The food is fantastic!
Outstanding meal. Food was done perfectly. Like the fact you can keep the menu's
Friendly and attentive service and delicious and complex dishes that are well worth the price.
The restaurant was excellent as always! Service was extremely attentive and the food was delicious! We had the 800 degree bruschetta, octopus salad and the the Spedini. All was perfect!
For entrees we had the Cinquanta (50 layer lasagna), veal saltimboca and the veal parm. We loved each and every one of them! We ended with 3 mini cannoli’s. It was a delicious meal!!
Dining at Luca’s Ristorante was a very pleasant surprise. The food was very flavorful, especially the branzino, the prices more than reasonable and our waitress provided excellent service. I highly recommend Luca’s. Try the meatball appetizer!
I’m so glad I found this on yelp. The food was amazing, the presentation was awesome. The wine was really good. Great Italian for a special occasion.
Everything was great as usual. We enjoyed ourself
Excellent food as always, nice setup outside and reasonable distance between tables inside
This is second visit in 2 weeks. We really enjoy the food here and the fact that it is BYOB only makes it more appealing. The bread basket is amazing! We started with the meatballs, which include raisins are are mouthwatering. Entrees were a ravioli type of cocoa pasta stuffed with butternut squash in a cream sauce with pistachios...oh my was it wonderful! And a differently named ravioli with many layers..no tomato sauce... cream, veal, mushrooms. Delicious and huge.. we just finished for lunch. A really nice evening!
Excellent food! Spaced out seatings, attentive servers
Waitress didn't care and because of that we couldn't wait to leave
I’ve written about Lucas before; LOVE this place!!!
A little pricey, but I’m worth it. 😉
Food , service and outdoor seating service was very good.
A rainy evening and we were fortunate to be able to eat inside. The food here is amazing...things prepared with a little twist that elevates excellent to spectacular. And to be able to bring your own wine is attractive. The bread that comes before the meal could be a meal in itself... we took the extras home as they were too delicious to leave behind. We ordered like one very hungry person and shared everything. Each dish was split in the kitchen, a touch we really appreciate. The started was figs stuffed with ricotta and wrapped In prosciutto. The sauce was balsamic and there were pignolis...yum! We chose the roasted pear salad. The portion was very large and filled with goat cheese and other goodies. The entree was a veal chop special with tomato cavatelli and asparagus. We each left a bit of the half chop. Truly a wonderful meal.
We dined outside and the table Configuration was slightly tight. The food was outstanding and the portions were large.
We shared the small portion of meatballs (2) and it was more than enough. We had the gallinaio (a battered chicken breast with eggplant and spinach and the cinquanta which is
lasagne with veal tenderloin stew, cheese, mushrooms / marsala sauce. Both dishes were excellent. We were too full to order desert. The only drawback was the road noise and there is nothing you can do about that.
Every dish was exceptionally flavored; the bread & oil/sauce, multiple appetizers, and our entrees. The wine list was excellent and local. We will be coming back to this restaurant for many years !
