Always great. Service is awesome. The menu has a bit of everything.
My braised short rib was icy cold in the center. It seemed to have been reheated from the refrigerator. Even the fats from the meat had solidified into white clumps.
The patio at this restaurant is one of our favorite dining spots and the service is usually spot on Unfortunately, on our last visit we were seated basically in the bushes in an area with overflow tables. Not sure why this happened, as we made our reservations well in advanced. We were seated at our table (without a view) for 20 minutes before a drink order was taken. Then our assigned waiter must have been reprimanded about our complaint and was surly for the first half of our meal while being friendly and personable with the surrounding tables. He eventually became more friendly and ultimately we had a nice evening. Food was outstanding as always.
Fine Menu, presentation and quality. High end prices. Good service. Overall a wonderful experience.
The food was great and the service even better. Thank you.
Beautiful Italian food with a wonderfully curated menu. The white truffle soup is a star of the menu. The pasta is light and perfect. The mains are perfectly cooked. Absolutely wonderful service.
We were a group of 7 people so we experienced many items on the menu. Some were excellent and some were at best okay. The service at our table was poor. If I'm receiving excellent food and service I'm happy to pay top dollar. I typically tip 22%; this time I reluctantly gave 18% tip.
Beautiful Patio, great food and service. Also has a wonderful happy hour that is a great value.
Awesome food wonderful atmosphere great night. Would love to see some outdoor lighting in the trees
Service was very, very slow. And, they had no outdoor heaters and it was 60 degrees.
I had never been to Luca’s before and couldn’t imagine how it could be excellent when it’s outdoors. Due to COVID regulations we had little choice. Wow was I wrong! All three of us were happy with the atmosphere and the food was absolutely amazing from the warm Italian bread (made just like some rustic areas of Italy) & the wine and the meal was some of the best food we have had outside of Italy. Thank you for a great evening! And our server on Thursday was a perfect host to celebrate a birthday with!
The Food is ALWAYS FABULOUS with whatever you may get!
I have gone here often before and now during CoVid-19, and it has always been one of my favorites! It is especially very safe, in my opinion, and hopefully it is ... during CoVid!!! Clean and standards of the Scientists met appropriately. Thank you for doing this! I would even come here in the Winter now knowing the tables are far enough apart for this time in our life's to be safe!
Food is amazing and patio is delightful.
Food is marvelous and worth the price... Even though pricey. Staff is great and very friendly. We only done outside right now and it was very pleasant
Tables are very small when dinning with just two people.
I was sat next to a statue/bust and I couldn’t back my seat out any further bc the other seat was in a door way almost so it was super crammed (why would you put a statue that close , I’m a skinny guy and if I had a problem I couldn’t imagine a bigger fella)
Food was good but I got a meal with chicken and it came with literally 6 pieces of wedge fries , maybe the dish very low quality.
Server was running around all night but not paying attention to our table. I got my drink refilled one time and only after waiting for 15 minutes and had to request it otherwise would’ve stayed empty until my food was gone.
One of the best patio on the west side. Outstanding service and food
Great food. Too pricey. The halibut special was $55. Ridiculous. $100 (including tip) for dinner is something we will not pay again. One drink. Cheapest entree for me.
Might recommend but would definitely caution about the prices.
Great food and service............. .......................m
We have eaten at their downtown location and it was great. This one, not as great. Food service was really slow. We didn't order dessert as we didn't want to wait another 30 minutes. My house salad was bland. There was no wow factor.
I really like the food and atmosphere at Luca West. The patio is heavenly. Our most recent experience was inside, however. The food was good but service, while friendly, was incredibly slow. We waited about an hour and a half for our entrees.
Great food and patio as always. We had dinner at the patio bar. Great drinks and friendly bartender.
Love the outside patio as it is welcoming and done well to support social distancing . Have been to the restaurant twice in the past few weeks and come away with a mediocre rating . The service is OK but certainly not great as it appears that the servers are just simply overwhelmed . The food is OK but nothing worth a special trip. Do I like the restaurant ? Yes . Do I have a desire to return soon? No.
A perfect way to spend our 47th Anniversary. Absolutely fantastic food and service.
Anniversary dinner! Service and food was exceptional! Our server, Nisa was delightful. It was a perfect night and we were so grateful to have a safe environment to celebrate our special day on a beautiful patio. We will be back soon!
very pleasant experience for the first time with business partners
Best Patio Dining on the West side of Cleveland! Great food and service. Went with my family of 6 and we all enjoyed the food and drinks.
Very nice waiter Joseph. Beautiful patio.
We celebrated our anniversary and our servers were very sweet. They took our picture and gave us a teramasu that was excellent! Great anniversary at Luca West!
Service was fair at best. They forgot my salad and never mentioned it. The server would come over, ask a question and then run away before we could even answer. Food was ok.
We always have a great evening at Luca West. Food and service are the best.
One of our favorite restaurants. Everything always exceeds our expectations. Once again our server,Joseph,was fabulous,dinner was as well. Along with perfect weather,and the beautiful patio,truly a perfect evening.
Excellent food and service. Truly delicious food. The prices are about 20% too high compared to other options. May be due to COVID. Absolutely worth splurging.
We had an anniversary dinner outside and our guests were very pleased. We will come back soon.
We are from the far east side. Painesville.
Always a fabulous experience with equally fabulous food. The cioppino is the stuff legends are made of. Don’t miss it.
Awesome night! Everything was great. The patio was beautiful. Nice music. The weather was perfect.
I have eaten at Luca downtown and taken out from Luca West before but this is the first time dining there. The patio was very nice and spacious. The service was very good and the food was excellent. Highly recommended.
Great food. Attentive service. Nice, outdoor setting
We had a lovely meal on the patio. We enjoyed clams, lobster risotto and short ribs. Large portions with enough for lunch the next day. Also shared chocolate mousse cups for dessert. It’s not inexpensive, but was delicious.
Food was fantastic and generous portions The wait staff were very attentive. We will be back.
It was all great!
