Had not been to Lucca in a while but everything was great from the time we arrived until we left. The food and service was awesome. Our waitress was excellent and had some great recommendations, the pasta and salmon dishes were excellent as was the beet salad and calamari. We finished with gelato for dessert. Overall a great experience.

Service and drinks were great. I ordered the frutti de mare and my scallops and pasta were cold but shrimp was hot. Tiramisu was not great.

The ambiance was good as there was more separation from other guests due to Covid-19 requirements. The food was fair to good, probably good overall, just not fantastic. The service was by the same person who greeted us at the hostess station. She seemed to be running ragged with not only our table and hostess duties but other tables as well. This was a Saturday night and you would think this restaurant having all tables (allowable) full that they would employ enough service staff. But it did not seem to be the case.

Hopefully when things get mostly back to normal (later this year, we all hope), the staff will be replenished and service will not be an issue here.

The white wine was warm, the scallops were overly salty and the eggplant was under cooked. I have previously enjoyed good meals at Lucca. This was not one of them

I feel like every review during Covid times has an asterisk on it… But this one does not need that. The food was absolutely outstanding! The best brussels sprouts I’ve ever had in my life. The filet was perfect and the garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus for an awesome compliment. Service was excellent and gave a great wine recommendation.

We had an impromptu Engagement Celebration for a friend from Texas at this restaurant. I ordered the cheese ravioli and started with Italian Wedding Soup. I always like it when use Orzo noodles in soups, my grandmother always did it and they happen to do that here. The soup was hearty and lightly salted. The raviolis were perfectly cooked and delicious. Our server was able to recommend a nice red Italian wine for the table and we had a really great experience.

Another memorable meal
I had the Alfredo
My intention is not to express, the most often used statement and most egregiously used rating
But for the simplicity and the goal for every restaurateur and chef

THE BEST

Truly magnificent

If this liquid seduction of cheese was served in a martini glass, the request would be as follows:

Fill it to the brim till it is dripping down the glass
Very very dry. No vermouth.
Straight up !
Do not deviate on pain of death
Just pure unadulterated cheeseful bliss

Friendly staff, attentive enough - I guess okay for trying to run a proper restaurant during covid. Food looked great on the plate but was a little off ie meat temp and seasoning. Could be a great Italian place if it was operating at full power. I will definitely try again
