It was the first time I went back since the pandemic to eat indoors. I felt very comfortable, they had the tables space out and the food was delicious as always.

We were 17 guests for a memorial birthday party & had but 2.5 hrs before having to vacate .
3 hours is really what needs to be allowed.
I understand because of Covid there is limited space,but all of the long time guests to Luka’s were surprised & not pleased!

Once again, we’ve been loyal customers of Luka for over 30Yrs, and have NEVER had a bad meal/experience there! Friendly, attentive staff, and outstanding food. I brought my friend, Donny, who was visiting from CA, and we selected 2 of Luka’s staple dishes: Chicken Cardinale and Veal Sorrento. Donny summed up our experience perfectly; “this is one of the best meals I’ve had in a loooong time!” 👌🏻🧑🏻‍🍳 Thanks Luka & Staff! Bravo!

Great place! Been going there for years. BYO! Excellent southern Italian, very well priced. Dinner for 4 with appies was < $120 with tip. Polite, prompt service. Hard to compete in Italian in North Jersey - Luka's wins.

Our first time, and will definitely go back! The food was wonderful. Great choices on the menu, something for everyone. Enjoyed the appetizer (fried mozzarella carozza), great red sauce for the entrees (I had the vegetable lasagna, my partner the chicken parm). The owner stopped by even though it was our first time and had a lengthy conversation with us, which really made us feel appreciated.
The restaurant was clean, nice ambience, quite a bit larger than I had imagined. A great new spot for us to go back to.

My husband & I went to dinner to celebrate our anniversary. I had scallops scampi over linguini & my husband had veal parmigiana over linguini. The meals come with a small dinner salad with the best dressing, & great Italian bread ( all Italians know if the bread is good, the meal will be good )! We even split a tartufo for dessert. The entire meal was so good! We will continue to return to eat at Luka’s!

Authentic Italian cuisine in a quiet atmosphere. We ate both during the week and on the weekend. There’s definitely less people during the week but the food quality doesn’t change. It is exceptional. The calamari is the best I’ve had. My husband lives for their veal.

It was a really great experience. My wife and I went out on a date. They were very busy for a Saturday night but that is normal. The food was delicious. Very well run the family business. We will be back again and will recommend it to our friends.

Our favorite for years, Luka’s, didn’t disappoint again for my husband’s birthday. We both had shrimp scampi over linguini, which is one of our favorites. For dessert , the waiters put a candle in my husband’s cannoli and we all sang Happy Birthday. I had pumpkin tartufo since it was around Thanksgiving, & it was delicious. With the owner & chef Luka in the kitchen , you can’t go wrong. Thanks, Luka, for another great meal!

We got lucky with an outdoor table, but were were not as visible to the waitstaff being so far away. This, with an overly crowded staff trying to please the take-out orders meant that we did not get to see our waiter too often. The food was tasty and we brought our own wine. A good, but slightly disappointing evening.

Luka's Italian Restaurant has the finest Italian food in Bergen County.The waiting staff have been working there forever too. They are awesome. Luka or his son NIck comes around saying hello to everybody. They are the best.
Now onto the food Chicken Parmigiano is what I get most of time and it is a thin chicken breast cover with Luka's tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese.It is delicious and best around! Most of the time it is so tender you can cut it with fork. This time I couldn't cut with a fork. Hence the 4 * and not 5*
The dinner prices are really good, it is a BYO so you can bring your wine.
If your in the mood for great Italian food head straight to Luka's, you won't be disappointed.
Five 5 stars all the way. Read less
