    Wonderful Italian lunch in the heart of North Oakland on S Craig St. We enjoyed the parmesan risotto side to start (very rich flavor) and had eggplant parm and chicken parm as our entrees. Good portions and nice flavor. Very friendly and personalized service from Dustin. Participation in AAdvantage Dining program made me think to go, OpenTable reservation made it happen on short notice, and the good food, reasonable lunch prices and service will bring us back. Thanks!

    We enjoyed our first visit to Lucca. The restaurant is on a cute street near Carnegie Mellon. We sat on their covered patio. Our appetizers were excellent, but our entrees were just ok. Also, th service felt a little rushed…our entrees arrived before we finished our appetizers. All in all, we were happy with our meal and would definitely return.

    We were at seated outside When we advised the service of the knat problem there was no sense of urgency to move us inside. We finally got moved inside once we were ready to leave. The food was excellent however the service and urgency could of been better.

    I'd like to recommend this place if are you are not waited on by the server Alyssa. For what was suppose to be a special birthday dinner for my mother ended up being quite the opposite. I am not one to usually complain because i know what its like to be busy it's not always the servers fault but our service was very poor for how much money I spent. Sadly the experience of being neglected overshadowed the good food.

    Upon Arriving to the restaurant and walking in, My Wife and I were not acknowledged. We waited about 10 mins at the front desk to be acknowledged and seated, even though servers have walked past us. The gentleman Jake was seating someone else but did see us come in, then failed to acknowledge us and we had a reservation. Then he was our server as well when we were finally seated. The restaurant was out of Asparagus that night and also did not have the Lucca Zuppa Toscana soup. After we ordered our meals, it was disappointing hearing another server go over that night's specials with that group, but we were unaware of the dinner specials and finding out that Chicken Carbonara was on special and that is my Wifes Favorite Dish, and she was disappointed since it was her birthday, and we wish the server would have gone over the specials with us and recommended a wine. When our dinners finally came out, it took a while and the table next to us ordered after us and two people got the same thing and they got their meals first. We both thought the meals were Just okay and the pasta was a bit hard or tough meaning it needed cooked a bit more. My wife thought she would get a dessert for her birthday, but she did not but another table celebrating did get a free dessert. The atmosphere of the restaurant is very nice, but my wife and I were very surprised that a couple had walked in to be seated without a reservation only to be turned away even though many tables were open for patrons. The couple was recommended to go up the street to other restaurants by the server we had. Very surprising that business would be turned down. You win some and loose some and I am not sure my thoughts but may return again to try something else and give this cute restaurant another try. Just giving my honest review and thank you!

    Food was delicious, but bread with no butter or oil was left at the table. When we requested some, our server never brought it. Finally asked another server to get it. Service was not as good as the food.

    I called in to reschedule my reservation and host confirmed the change but the change never happened. It was fine but they missed the mark on that. The food was really excellent- our server was nice and knowledgeable but the energy was rushed, even slightly pushy. Our drinks, apps, and entrees all came out within 45 minutes. For the price point of the restaurant, this was rather quick and made it hard to settle in and enjoy the place.

    What a charming downtown restaurant Lucca is! We were in town for a Carnegie Mellon football game and staying at the nearby Wyndham. It was an easy walk, with curb appeal. Zac was our friendly and efficient server, with Alyssa helping him put. We enjoyed butternut squash ravioli, shrimp scampi, and eggplant parmesan. We were in early on a Friday and a wedding rehearsal party was being seated as we left, so clearly they can become busy. Plan ahead and you will enjoy a lovely mean in pleasant surrounding and attentive staff. Recommended!

    We are dropping off our daughter for first year of college. It was her birthday and we chose to celebrate with Italian food. We sat outside and were taken care of by a young woman who was very engaging and attentive. The food was excellent, the outdoor space is perfect size, and the overall experience such that we plan to make it an annual dinner at college drop off, if not more often.

    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.
