    Appetizers were sub par. Pasta was like glue. None of our party of 4 finished our entrees and definitely didn’t take the leftovers home.

    the host, on arrival, was dismissive and un accommodating, the waiter was energetic but a bit too much when he didn’t ask us about our meal but TOLD us how good it was!, and the portions were small (although we were told by the waiter that we would all need to go boxes). The food was tasty but all the meals were Tapas size at gourmet prices. The check was dropped, when we declined dessert, BEFORE we were finished with our entre and wine!!!Lastly, we had to return the next day to retrieve our CC :/

    Reservation was made in May for patio seating celebrating 2 special birthdays in a party of 5. 48 hours before the reservation we were called and told we were being moved inside for a special event on the patio. By the way, the patio never was full for the special event. There were several empty tables. We were offered a bottle of presecco for being moved. We had to ask for it 3 times. Empty dishes were stacked on our table and not taken away for a long time. Service was extremely extremely slow. The restaurant was not busy. It was a Thursday And the table we were given was in a horrible location next to a loud table. No question at all about the soecial events we were celebrating. We are pretty low key people. Not hard to please and rarely complain. But these birthdays ended up not being a nice celebration.

    We had a wonderful dinner at Luccas. We shared a Caesar salad with a nice side of anchovies. My husband had the filet with creamed spinach and pasta. He enjoyed it. I had the tagliatelle with bolognese. The portion was perfect. The pasta was excellent and the sauce was well done and balanced. The decor is a little dated, but the service was very attentive and personal. A good place for casual night out. We were from out of town; but if local, it would be a good spot if you are looking for your “usual” place to go. A little “home away from home” kind of place.

    We read great reviews of this place, so were terribly embarrassed and disappointed at having chosen it as the place to meet with cousins from out of town that we had not seen in years. Meals were tepid temperature and mediocre and did not taste freshly made; told there was no bread served at lunch (really for an Italian restaurant??); no milk or cream available for cappuccinos or coffee we ordered, which were also not hot; tiramisu was dry and probably old; women toilets: 1-out of order and the other could not flush. General service very slow in spite of only four tables in whole restaurant with customers. Really had looked forward to a nice Italian meal and extremely disappointed all around. Only thing that was nice was that the porch was lovely and we could catch up with each other, but meal was definitely not what it was expected to be.

    Food was amazing (including the desert), waitress was so friendly and did an outstanding job, sat on the porch (which I really enjoyed). I honestly don't remember the pricing. I don't think it was so great that we ran back the next day, but it wasn't so bad compared to other places that I wouldn't go back. I will definitely make the trip to the city to go back.

    They were very accommodating, we had reserved outdoor seating and once we got there realized it was much warmer than we anticipated. The wait staff quickly moved us inside. They were out of my favorite Malbec but out waitress quickly gave me some other options. The food was excellent! Would recommend and come back.

    Nice waiter. Took a while to get food. Table was actually tacky. Glasses and dishes stuck to table, all the time! Please refinish that table. I think it's table 46. A six seater at the top of the steps. The room was too bright also. Lousy ambiance. The rest of the restaurant look nice and we have eaten in the restaurant three or four times now over the years, even in that room. But last night, between the table being tacky, and the brightness of the room, it was not a great experience.

    Italian restaurant picked over over choices due to menu description, house made pastas, sauces, ambience etc. Our waitress was friendly, but was late to the table. Notified they were "out of bread" because the owner was "out of town and forgot to order more bread" for the weekend. This was 7:30, Friday night. Chewy calamari, no bread for burrata, waitress brought an offering of stale, cold brioche bread, had to tear to eat, but we were starving...good thing no dentures in this crowd. Food order took over 40 minutes and plates were burning hot and food was rather gelatinous. Tell tale sign - they were sitting in a hot window. All pasta very chewy. Chicken Piccata served in a deep bowl, soggy-ish chicken on top, impossible to cut, no room over crowded pasta, way too tart sauce on top for sauce. Frutti de Mar was a drowning mass of chewy pasta, seafood did not inspire confidence in the upcoming digestion process. Needless to say, cute spot, looked good. Not so much. Will not go again or recommend.

    The food was excellent, as always, have eaten here many times. On this particular visit, the service was a little slow / the server wasn't very attentive, but appeared it was due to having a lot of tables to serve. I also noticed on this visit we were not given bread at the table, don't know if they discontinued that or she forgot, but we didn't ask because we had plenty to eat anyway. Normally, the service is excellent though and the food very good. Definitely recommend.
