Luca West is never disappointing. Great food and service each and every time. Enjoyed for a birthday celebration and the photo is a super nice touch. The Tortellini is always the best route to go, so luscious and wonderfully done.

Service was great as was the food. Wide range of options in several categories, salads, entrees, desserts. Noise level was a bit much for ease of conversation was only detractor.

Food was very good, but prices were high compared to comparable restaurants.
Server seemed distracted at times, confused as to who in our party of four had ordered which beverage and entree.
The cigarette smoke from the end of the plaza blew right into the dining area.

We are frequent customers of Luca in downtown Cleveland which is an excellent restaurant in every way. Luca west on the other hand is just an imitation of the original. Vastly overpriced, it delivers not in the way of great food or ambience. My sea bass, normally a favorite dish, was mushy. Service on the other hand was excellent. The noise level on our Friday visit made it impossible —yes, impossible — to converse at our table for six. Our group decided that night never to return to Luca West.

We went for our Anniversary. We were given Tiramisu with a candle and flower and, hand written frame. It was a very sweet unexpected gesture. The service was fantastic! My husband got the bolognese, which he said was delicious, I had the Mare, which was cooked perfectly. Everything was great!

We thoroughly enjoyed our Anniversary Dinner @ Luca West. Our server, Antonio was extremely attentive and his dinner suggestions were very appreciated. All the food from the sacchetti to start through a tiramisu finish was tastefully prepared and beautifully presented. Highly recommend!

Only problem was there were 3 couples and our waiter but the three all on one bill. That was not good. We asked them to correct which he did. All is good.

Loved dining on the generous sized patio. Enough tables for everyone to enjoy. Feels like an Italian garden. The calamari appetizer was so tender and flavorful. Service was perfection. Halibut and veal medallions were equally delicious. Ended our night celebrating my birthday with a beautiful photo card and tiramisu complimentary of Luca West!

Took my wife here for our anniversary and loved it! The staff was extremely knowledgeable and attentive. The food was plentiful and amazing (Lobster Risotto and Halibut - I think they both were specials). Added this place to my favorites list. Will absolutely dine here again.

We sat on the fabulous patio, but have also enjoyed inside dining. The ambiance is outstanding. The food -sautéed calamari app is so so tender and the broth/sauce so so flavorful, the stuffed veal tortellini and the sauce is killer...even reheated as leftovers the next day. Can’t say enough about the careful service and the pride that everyone on staff seems to have. One of my most favorite places around...

Started on the patio as requested but had to move inside as there were way too many spiders to contend with... got a table inside and our server couldn’t have been better. She was already swamped with a party of @40 people and she never batted an eye!

I planned a baby shower dinner for a friend of mine the food was mediocre, the Downtown location had larger portions and better service
Our waiter was so bad that the guest of honor didn’t want us to tip him

Both Luca and Luca West have some of the best dishes in Cleveland! It is always a favorite and one that I highly recommend to everyone. The food is excellent! It also was the restaurant that my husband and I ate at right before he proposed, so we have a special place in our hearts for Luca! It is always our go to when we celebrate life’s big moments.

The fish was excellent. The rosso buco was o.k. the veal was excellent the sauce was pretty average. The green beans would have been cooked a little longer. But the entire evening was spoiled by the terrible service. The restaurant gave us an inexperienced server, who did not mention the specials, pushed us to order an entree and we had to insist we also wanted to order a salad. Then he disappeared. Our table was cleared by another waiter and we waited almost 20 minutes before I want to the hostess to tell her we wanted to be served. If a client is going to be served by an inexperienced it is the responsibility of the manger to keep an eye on how he/she does.

Luca West never disappoints... We have been there several times. this occasion we had 9 people, the food was again outstanding, all our guests loved it. Joe our server was very engaging and attentive to our group. The wine list has something for every taste and price range.
Definitely will recommend and return again.

The food is perfection! Presentation is spectacular. Don't miss the lobster risotto or the branzino filleted table side. The calamari appetizer is enough to share and is served in a tomato caper sauce/broth that is extraordinarily delicious. This restaurant is a gem.

Top notch experience! I am not a patio person by nature but it was so invited I took the chance and am glad I did. Every part of the meal was wonderful. We had Insalta di Nora, Cheese tortellini with shrimp/lobster and veal tortellini. All were delicious! So fresh and flavorful. The bread and dipping oil was also one of the best. Can’t wait to go back again. The prices make it “not an every day kinda spot” but good when you’ve got something to celebrate.

This is a fabulous restaurant. The management makes sure you are very well taken care. The patio is gorgeous and the food fantastic. We had our son's rehersal dinner at Luca downtown very accomodating to our wishes.
