This was the first time there . I had a 9om reservation and the place was packed. We were seated minutes after we arrived. It kind of loud with the amount of people that were there but it is was tolerable. We were greeted at the table by our server and he popped the bottle of wine for us and we were off. The food was excellent. Almost like it was a home cooked meal. We weren't rushed and we didn't have to wait too long either. I am glad I took my wife there for our 15th anniversary dinner.

Went for lunch. No crowd but service still a little slow. Validate not deep fried as expected but sautéed Accompanying sauce more tomato sauce than Marinara
Entrees average. Linguini with clam sauce good yet over cooked. Special bow tie and shrimp better. Only three shrimp

The place is always crowded so be sure to make a reservation. The food is excellent. My family and I go there all the time and have never ordered something we didn’t like. The staff is very friendly. Chef Luka and his family will go out of their way to please you.

The food was very good, but the wait was too long (probably the time we entered). For the amount of people at all filled tables, the service was good. I really have no complaints about this location.

Consistently solid Italian affair. Gets very crowded but worth the wait. Wide array of pastas chickens and fish dishes. I’ve tried most on the menu at this point and I’ve never been disappointed.

My wife and I have been eating at Luka’s for 29Yrs and have NEVER had a bad meal! Luka, his son Nick, and their friendly staff, many of whom (Renee, George, etc.) have been with him for over 20Yrs, are “family.” The food is always piping hot, prepared to perfection and delicious. We highly recommend Luka’s for any occasion and any sized party. Buon Appetito!

Our favorite restaurant. They take reservations and we had made one for Valentine’s Day dinner. They had a special menus with new selections than their regular menu. I had lobster/ shrimp ravioli in a pink sauce and my husband had the shrimp scampi. Both were so good and tasty. It is a BYOB and ,as always, Luka and his son are there to welcome you and make sure everything is great with your choices. The restaurant is always full and tonight was no different. All the patrons know a good restaurant and keep coming back!

If you're a fan of sitting 6 inches from the next table while eating your dinner and this is the place for you. And of course having glass on top of your table so they don't get their white table cloths dirty is also a nice touch LOL. The best part is when the elderly owner walks around touching everyone was shaking hands with everyone and looking kind of weird does he actually do the cooking?

to summarize this place is nothing special at all Not to mention the parking stinks . The food is less than mediocre you're better off going to Applebee's don't know what all the five star reviews are about

Have been going to this restaurant on and off for as many years as long as it has been opened. Originally went to their other location. Always consistent with great service and food. Went with friends for a birthday celebration. Great appetizers and meals. Nice size portions. Honored reservation. Had table waiting for us. Would recommend and definitely return again.
