    It was awful from beginning to end. They messed up our reservations and sat each couple in a reservation of a party of four at separate tables in separate parts of the restaurant wondering why the other couple was late. We finally got seated together and put in our order. The waiter came out with our entrees before we finished our appetizers, and the waiter said “wow, that came out much faster than I thought it would.” As it turns out both filets were way undercooked. Both raw in the middle. They eventually took them back and gave us ones that were properly cooked. By that time the accompanying lobster tails were cold. I should also mention those were served without drawn butter. Never mentioned they were not served with butter.

    Drinks & service were excellent. Food was not as good as Luca West. Short Rib pasta was too large, and greasy tasting. The crab meatballs were room temp on cold marinara sauce- not appealing at all.

    All of our food was excellent and the pear martini was fabulous. The risotto with crab legs was my personal favorite. Our server was knowledgeable on the menu and made recommendations based on what we were looking for. Menu had non seafood options if you were looking for it. All of the luca restaurants are top notch and Acqua di Luca was no exception.

    My server Victor was absolutely the best. I work in the industry and he is a top notch employee. The food was great! Try the filet w black truffle sauce it was five star. It’s definitely all I expected and more.

    The food was delicious. It was a Saturday evening and the restaurant was packed. The staff seemed a bit overwhelmed. The choice in music, which you could only hear off and on, was odd for a fine dining experience.

    At $100 a head, I would have expected a much better experience. All at my table (4) agreed the food was good but having to do an alacarte side dish seemed a bit much for a $55 meal. The noise wasn’t energetic, it was just plain loud, no sound absorption material anywhere…almost uncomfortable. Finally, the service. I’m pretty sure that Acqua di Luca, like most restaurants, are experiencing a hard time getting enough wait staff. With that in mind, we felt the service to be slow in: taking our orders, drink delivery, and especially dessert delivery, a couple slices of tiramisu.

    Our experience could not have been better! We just loved our waitress, personable, made recommendations, knew the menu well. She was able to guide me in making gluten free choices. Great cocktail selection and wine list. The food was delicious and portions generous. I had the halibut, my husband had the crab risotto, we both had leftovers. Loved the atmosphere here as well. Exposed brick, cool lighting, busy but not too loud, just great ambiance. We had a lovely date night, that ended with sipping limoncello’s talking about how lucky we were to have found the perfect spot!

    The location and venue are nice. The service was great. I was not that impressed with the food. I feel that it is overpriced. My sea bass was cold. It was served with navy beans. This was a strange combination. The fish had no seasoning. I was disappointed. This was my first time. I wont return.

    Service was outstanding. Food was okay. Doesn’t include a side dish with the main course. Very expensive!! Ordered crab meatballs for app and it was all breading. Ordered the lobster ravioli and salmon. Again, just okay. Had two sidecars…one was excellent, the other was not as good. Clearly different bartender.

    Great food, great service, in the Luca tradition. If you like seafood simply and creatively prepared, get here. But try to sit in the main dining room, with its big windows and high ceiling. We were seated in the adjacent dining room, along a red brick wall, and it lacks for ambience.

    I went to Luca for an anniversary. The ambiance was amazing. It was cozy, inviting, and upscale upon immediate entry. The service was good but our server was either high or just really spaced out from the day. I had a $75 steak and if I’m honest I’ve had better $30 steaks at Logan’s steakhouse. It was a good steak but I expected “mouth-watering / amazing” at that price point and it wasn’t there. The Brussel sprouts were cooked very well and delicious though.

    We had a well prepared and served meal, from drinks to salad and appetizer courses, to the main course. Because it was a quiet birthday celebration, the very special extra (tiramisu, limoncello, and a framed photo) at the end of the meal was perfect to cap off and preserve the moment. A great place for a special Italian seafood meal.

    One f the best in Cleveland without a doubt .The only reason it was not 5 stars was I ordered a risotto with crab legs which the waiter recommended . The crab legs were dry and average at best and didn’t seem to work with the entire meal. Would have been really amazing if they didn’t have the crab legs at all. Cocktails were as good as they get in Cleveland. Loved the ambiance

    Our first visit. Not the ideal place for a Christmas Eve family dinner. Enormous portion size. Servers need a more entertaining personality to heighten the experience. Probably better for date night or business dinner.
