Food and Service was outstanding and they did a great job keeping guests separated. Such a nice atmosphere. Great for special occasion or romantic night out

Another great visit at Luca West. They do such a fantastic job with food, service and atmosphere. They follow the Covid restrictions and make you feel at ease when dining in this climate.

Two of my daughters and myself had another wonderful meal. Great service...a very conscientious gentleman and the bus people who supported him. Food was excellent as always. Sachetti, veal tortellini, salads --- all great. A couple of well made cocktails too. And we were celebrating a new job and grad school for the girls and he was kind enough to throw in a piece of tiaramasu

Luca never disappoints

The servers were nice and attentive, but having multiple service meant constant interruptions. Couldn’t hear the music. Food wasn’t worth the price, not much flavor. I had the halibut special, $55. The sauce that was on it was more like a broth, veggies that it came with lacked flavor. I heard the apps were good and would give it another shot for those.

Luca is ALWAYS fantastic. Lilly & Daniella are the sweetest bartenders and make us feel so welcomed. We sat for happy hour for a while prior to our reservation. We ordered the sacchetti is FABULOUS. it’s the best app on the menu. When we sat for dinner we ordered the shrimp cocktail app, the duck and the rack of lamb with a bottle of Chianti. Everything was cooked perfectly. Our waiter was diligent and kind. We visit often and it’s always a pleasant experience. Can’t wait to come back!

The west side's best kept fine-dining secret! Don't let the office building exterior dissuade you. Luca West carries on the tradition of Luca downtown with a beautiful, intimate interior design that captures an otherworldly, European experience. The food is wonderful and well-priced for the quality and volume. Sit by the romantic fireplace if you can! The staff is warm and welcoming, and it's such a nice touch that both locations take a photo of you and your guests and present it within minutes in a lovely frame folder. Plenty of space to be comfortably and safely socially distanced, too. Will definitely visit again!

The food was delicious- the staff and service was amazing. The only downfall was waiting 30 minutes for a table even with a reservation and then waiting almost 1 hr for our food. Our food wasn’t served until after last call which is currently 10pm (reservation was for 8:15) in Ohio due to COVID. There was a private party happening at the same time with club style music blasting, singing and cheers so that made it hard to hear across the table. I’ve been waiting to try this place - food was great, wait was way too long and the noise level because of the private party is what made me give it a 3 star.

We had a reservation for 8 but they were overbooked and had a small wedding reception to accommodate. We had an app at the bar first with Edie who was wonderful. We got our table at 9 and dinner was exceptional. The Bolognese And pumpkin special were well worth it. Our server JR was attentive and personable.

Dined on the patio, on one of the most perfect October evenings one could ask for. Food was great, as usual, and service was attentive and friendly.
This restaurant, while expensive, is one of the best on Cleveland's west side!

My fiancée and I celebrated our engagement at Luca West and could not have been happier. The staff, food and service made that night that much more special. We ate on the beautiful patio, no the noise level was much lower than inside. We will surely return soon!

Way over crowded. We had a 7:00 reservation and didn’t get seated until after 7:30. That set the tone. Staff did a good job for what they had to deal with. Pricey but that’s expected. Our waitress was very good. Food was very good except they could have trimmed some of the fat on my ribeye!! I would be back for a special occasion dinner.

We walked out after waiting 45 minutes. Reason for wait given is it was Saturday night. No apology from staff. No social distancing because so many people waiting for tables, I would guess 40 to 50 people. Arrogance of staff was disappointing. Very sad to see this at a neighborhood restaurant. When called to let them know we left manager said to hang up since we had already left , so they hung up on us. Such a shame

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.

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.
