Lou Cas never fails to provide excellent Italian food. It is our favorite. The hot appetizer for 2 is always a favorite. The veal is always tender and prepared a number of different ways. We had the veal Sorrentino The desserts are magnificent. We had the cannolis. They give you 4. They're as good as any I've had at Italian bakeries.

Server never told us the specials I had to ask food took a very long time to come out(we all had pasta) then our server just disappeared. I had to ask someone else for the check they got our server to finally bring it then disappeared again after waiting another 20 min to pay. We live Loucas but this visit was definitely a disappointment. Also they weren’t nearly as busy as they normally are… not even close

The choices on the menu were quite extensive making it difficult to choose. I had salmon which was absolutely delicious! Each of my friends were quite pleased with their choices as well, chicken, stuffed shrimp, and crab cake. A special Birthday decorated plate made our Birthday dessert extra special. Our server was quite attentive and helpful. We were not rushed and enjoyed a lovely Birthday Luncheon together. LouCa’s is a very special restaurant!

The food prices went up since Pandemic but so has every place we ate at. We had the seafood platter appetizer which was delicious but was $48 for two. Good service and our meals were very good. However no salad with specials & no bread on table. Was given a roll each & one butter each. Guess trying to cut down expenses & waste. We would go again. One of our favorite restaurants.

Great food as usual for the entire family. The waitress was very friendly and attentive. We were celebrating my husbands birthday and the tables around us sang and gave him a round of applause. A good place to be yourself relax and enjoy!

Food was great. Soft shell crab special was great. Swordfish was great. Stuffed mushrooms for $12 for 4 tiny button mushrooms not so great. They were unbelievable small. I would have thought for $12 you get at least maybe 8-10 mushrooms….but only 4? Not worth. Maybe should have gotten calamari.

Always top notch, amazing food and great service! I have never been disappointed once in all of the years that I have dined there. It can be a little noisy when the restaurant is full, especially around the holidays or on weekends so just something to be aware of. They have a lovely outdoor area that they have set up since Covid which is a nice alternative and good weather.

Got together with friends we hadn’t seen in years. Owner was very accommodating seating us away from a large party group. Many specials which is probably the way to go. I had the grouper with porcini mushroom sauce which was excellent. My husband had the stuffed broiled shrimp which were just ok. Terrific service. Overall, delightful experience.

First time at this restaurant with a date last evening.

We reserved outside seating and our table was a few feet away from a large, noisy fan that was pointed in our direction. This made having a conversation a bit difficult not to mention having all that air directly blown on us.

The meal was okay, but not stunning.

We started with an appetizer of calamari. It was served with a spicy red sauce. In all, it was very good.

However, the rib eye (which was the special of the evening) was pretty bad. It was very fatty and tough.

Portions were very good.

The price for two people, with appetizer, came to about $100 which is really pricey given the fact there were no alcoholic drinks and the food really was not exceptional.

I am not saying this was an awful dining experience, but just not exceptional enough that I would want to return. This doesn’t come close to my favorite Italian restaurant, Boccones South, which is further north but I highly recommend you check out.

The food was excellent as always. Among the 4 of us We had the sausage/broccoli rabe appetizer and for entrees a chicken dish, soft shell crab, and veal chops. All were excellent except for the chicken which was dry/overdone. Our waiter service was very courteous but extremely slow and we had to summon the waiter a few times. The bread wasn't as good as before. However, we will definitely return!

Service was terrible. Had to ask three times for water. Waitress brought wrong salad then when she brought correct one it had dressing which was supposed to be on side. One guest didn’t get her meal until the rest of us were finished. In addition, the waitress had an edge about here. She gave excuses for everything that was incorrect. I have eaten here before and loved it. Tonight made me feel like I don’t want to go back.
