    The service was really good and the food was good but lacked seasoning. My dessert burned the roof of my mouth so bad that is one of the reasons for the less than great review. I told my server but by then it was too late anyway.

    This was my second visit to Lucca and I was just as impressed as I was the first time. The food is absolutely amazing. Hands down my favorite Italian restaurant in Pittsburgh. We came to celebrate a birthday and it was such a good experience. The desert and seasonal cocktail options were also 10/10. We'll be talking about this dinner until we can come back again.

    We both had the chicken piccata. Nice enough, but not superb. Huge helping, though, and asparagus was perfect. Chicken needed to have been pounded to make it thinner and more tender. Pasta seemed house-made and was great. Service was superb and we were promptly seated even though we arrived early.

    Last evening, we met friends at Lucca’s Ristorante that was decided by the group based on location in the Oakland area, having an outdoor dining experience and having cuisine that is top notch. We were pleasantly surprised with Lucca’s outdoor accommodations in pleasant weather conditions, professional staff and superb cuisine, evidently prepared by a top-quality chef, that we found delightful, delectable and delicious. All four of us had a different entree and came to the same conclusion that each was exceptionally prepared and presented in the best of taste. Our waitress Haley and the other staff that interacted with us were professional, exceptional, accommodating, thoughtful, courteous, helpful, attentive, respectful, gracious, kind, and caring. Before being seated, our bartender Dustin provided us with great drinks, enlightening information on the Restaurant and its history, and great conversation and entertainment overall. For those looking for a top notch, local restaurant that serves up its best cuisines under the stars, this is indeed worth the experience. Our sincere thanks and gratitude to Dustin, Haley and the professional staff at Lucca’s Ristorante. Our party of four is looking forward to returning in the near future.

    The meal did not start out well. Service forgot us for about 20 minutes. No drinks, no one stopped by to ask anything; although several hosts and waiters walked by. I finally went to one of the hosts and she took action and within a minute or two we were being attended too. After that, service was very good and the meal was great. They recognized the mistake and gave us a nice discount for the dinner. I was pleased when I was leaving and isn’t that the best feeling.

    The food was well prepared , well presented and delicious. the portions were plentiful. The price was reasonable and the service was prompt, courteous and helpful. We sat outside on the covered terrace and enjoyed the evening breeze. While the choice of music was perfect, the volume was a little too loud, making it difficult to carryon a conversation. However, after mentioning it to our server, it was turned down to a reasonable level.

    This was the perfect date night with my Fiancé! The wait staff could not have been nicer. We sat on the patio and had a beautiful view of the Cathedral of Learning. All the food was excellent, but I was particularly blown away by the beef short rib. I’m sad I didn’t find this place sooner!

    I don’t know what to say but our dinner on Saturday night was just pretty mediocre on all levels. First and foremost the service is- well I want to say abominable- but the wait staff are running around frantically trying to get food to the many waiting tables and this frenetic activity makes the experience super stressful. Once again we had the waitress who feels the need to “ tell you how it’s supposed to be “ - really? Yeah I don’t think so. The pasta was terribly undercooked to the point of being inedible. We were once again informed of what must have been OUR mistake as she told us that the owner, who made it, said he tasted it and it was fine…but took it off the bill. And as per usual on a busy night the drinks take forever, the bread takes forever, the salad takes forever and the wait for the entree is interminable. Again I don’t know what to say but from what I’ve heard through the grapevine, we will be forever banned because of this negative review. Maybe we’re weird but when we go out we are hoping to have a relaxing enjoyable evening with decent food and good service.

    Our waitress was very nice but the food and drink were terrible. I started with a glass of red sangria which tasted like a glass of sugary syrup with cherries in it, more like an overpowering Shirley temple. I sent it back to try the white sangria which was also too sweet. Apparently they add simple syrup to their sangria but all it tasted like was pure sugar. The $9 house salad appetizer was drowning in vinaigrette dressing. I ordered the eggplant Parmesan for my entree. The noodles were over cooked mush and the eggplant was so chewy I could barely cut it into pieces. My boyfriend and I were both disappointed at paying $100 total for a very bad anniversary meal.

    Mother’s Day Dinner. Food was great. Service was great. No complaints. Definitely recommend a reservation opposed to showing up. First time and you could tell there’s an older audience that shows a loyal following. So get a reservation! Braised short rib risotto, highly recommended! Chicken Alfredo, classic dish and also recommended!
