2nd time dining here and just as impressive as the first. If you haven't had to chance to dine in on the patio, you are missing out! Great atmosphere and service was excellent. Food is incredible!

Even on a very busy Father's Day, the kitchen and servers were all at the top of their game. Halibut/artichoke special was perfectly prepared and bursting with nicely balanced lemony, buttery, salty flavor. Even the roasted potatoes which are so often an afterthought were just right...crispy and brown outside, creamy inside, and well seasoned. Impressive wine list and exceptionally good service. Only one quibble: the $50 price on the halibut was a bit of a surprise when the bill came, as that is substantially higher than virtually all of the other entrees.

Wow! If you haven’t been, you MUST go! This place is gorgeous, the food is beyond PERFECT, and our waitress was the sweetest, most patient lady. This was an expensive bill… HOWEVER- worth every single cent. We will absolutely be back!

The food was great but the portion of braised beef ravioli seemed a little small compared to The chicken dish my wife ordered.

The live music was beautiful BUT very loud for the size of the space. Conversation was difficult when the duet was performing and we were a good distance away from the sound system.

An absolutely beautiful night though.

Unfortunately the dining room was closed due to staffing issues so we had to sit on the patio, which was very nice but the woman that was singing was SO loud that we couldnt hear each other at the table. It was quite annoying. The weather was beautiful and it could have been a perfect evening except for that. All they needed to do was reduce the volume and it would have been fine.

We ate outside this time & loved the beautiful area, though previously we ate inside and loved that beautiful ambiance. We are new to this area and feel it will be hard to beat Luca West.. We’re so happy someone recommended it to us and will be regulars
during our time here.. Can highly recommend.. Halibut was outrageous!!!

60th birthday dinner. While the rain made everyone move inside from the patio everyone was great. Reni was terrific and made the dinner special with dessert & lemoncello. Food was amazing as always. Manuel is a wonderful manager orchestrating special experiences.

So disappointed. We were extremely patient because we understand everyone is short staffed but it was hard to understand how extremely poor the service was from the front door all the way til we left 😞

Luca’s has the kind of food that you take a taste and look up at your friends and say this is so good! We love the sacchetti and the prime rib special!

I came to Luca to enjoy their patio and unfortunately when I got there the hostess said it was closed. The weather was BEAUTIFUL outside but we had to sit inside. I was so disappointed. The food was delicious but as the night went on and they got busier, the service lacked.

Food and service were excellent as always. The singers might have been a smidge too loud for our preference, making us need to raise voices on the patio to chat. Maybe warn patio diners that there is a musical act before seating them?

We ate outside where there were different levels of patio. There was a couple who sang wonderful songs, but they weren’t intrusive to talking at our table. The service was outstanding as well as the food. We will definitely return!

Had to wait to be seated well past our reservation time. Good was ok but some bland flavors, for the price we paid did not feel we got much value. Wine had floaters. I had to clean my bread plate before use as it had something on it. Service didn’t wear masks but were friendly and kind.

Server was fantastic the person that seated us and brought our wine had no personality and bordered on rude.
Food fantastic except the Freda steak was fatty and tough the other 11 people loved there food!
Wine selection great ( because they had Caymus)
No sound barriers hard to talk it is so loud.

The food and service were top notch, per usual. Staff was all masked and tables are decently spaced. We’ve been to both locations several times and the bar is definitely “energetic”, even for a Wednesday night. Our server was Fatos and we’ll request him by name next time. He was helpful, fun and just the right amount of “present”. Great server.

This is the third visit , but our least favorite experience. Prices have really increased ....we were shocked that one entree on the daily specials was $65. The scallop dish was exceptionally good, however my husband was disappointed in the gnocci.

This is our “strike 3”...every time we have been, the service is super slow due to staff shortage. We booked for a “special occasion” (graduation to be exact), made it know when reservation was made- and it went totally unacknowledged. The food is good but not worth the aggravation of subpar service. Won’t be back.

Open Table asks if you are celebrating anything- I said yes. Waiter also asked, but they did not acknowledge the celebration.
The cocktails were sub-par and disappointing esp. at $12 each.
The pork chop was not a pork chop but was like a pork shoulder steak.

Great dinner.
Suggest they play high class Italian Music like Andrea Bocelli, instead of the radio channel they play throughout the patio.
