Dining at Lukas is a wonderful experience. The food and it’s presentation is extraordinary. Luka and his staff treat you like family. My family and I celebrate many events at Lukas, and will always continue.
Happy New Year!!!

Another wonderful experience at Luka’s.
Every course was beyond delicious and the servers were friendly and attentive.
It’s a fun atmosphere and I do love getting the quiet romantic table from our first experience, but its the food that is really the draw.
We will be back and next time we will bring friends that we know will love it as much as we do.

This was possibly our 4th time at Luka’s & we will be back. Luka grows his own tomatoes & has the best burrata & tomatoes we’ve ever had. I had the lamb chops, one of the specials & my boyfriend had one of the chicken dishes, which he thoroughly enjoyed. If I could say one not so positive thing about the restaurant, it’s the noise level, unless this past Saturday night was exceptionally noisy. Luka’s is a neighborhood gem in the true sense of the word.

First visit here but definitely not the last. Pleasant from start to finish. The regular menu is varied, not your run of the mill everyday Italian. And boy, many of the specials made my mouth water. Really spoiled for choice. Loved that they had several fish dishes. Ample servings. Service was friendly and attentive and very reasonably priced.

As always the staff and food were excellent.

I was totally disappointed though when I made my reservation I requested to be in George's section ( we know him for years) only to arrive on time to find out no table was available.

The other wait staff was very good as well where we were seated.

It was our First time dining here and I can guarantee it will not be our last.
The food and appetizers were superb.
Fresh pick vegetables from their own private on premises garden.
Stuff zucchini flowers were fresh picked before our eyes and were delicious.
Chef came around to greet and chat. He was wonderful.
Even the dessert was magnificent!
5 stars, two thumbs up here!!!
Hidden gem!!

I went with a group of 8 older women. We were treated most graciously. Our reservation was honored and our table was ready. The food was very good. I especially love the pan seared salmon with a brandy cream sauce. The fish is fresh and perfectly cooked.The portions were generous. Salad is included. Prices are reasonable. The location is a bit challenging but don't give up because it's definitely worth a visit!

Not our first time to Luka's and certainly not our last! Great food using local ingredients - especially Luka's wonderful tomatoes from his garden just outside the restaurant! Love the Chicken Luka - a favorite. Also been to party's at Luka's and it is always perfect. Service is excellent and the waiters are great with recommendations. Go!

We love Luka, his son & their food. We shared the tomato, burrata & basil appetizer & my only regret is that I forgot to take a picture. Luka grows his own tomatoes & they are fantastic. I had mussels over linguini & Steve had one of the Fish specials which he said was delicious & light.

Luka's never disappoints. Quality food prepared well. Great service, friendly staff. Luka drops by your table with a smile and a friendly hello. BYOB, so we can afford appetizers and dessert too. Artichoke appetizer is excellent and the Burrata Mozzarella appetizer is so fresh it tastes like it was just made. Gluten-free options also. They go out of their way to make sure you are satisfied. Veal, fish, pasta, chicken...they make it all very well. Most restaurants serve either mushy side veggies or steamed with no flavor. Luka's veggies are tasty and cooked just right. Go early to get seated promptly. Some nights they are very crowded, but worth the wait for a table.

Hair in one meal, a second meal was under cooked fish, the third was tasteless, the fourth was very dry fish. The waiter insisted that it was good but when he tasted the under cooked fish he blamed us for ordering it differently. Remember the name of this restaurant so that you can tell people NOT to go there.
