    The service is impeccable, The servers are attentive from the moment you are seated until you leave! Our servers were funny, kind and hard working for every table. The food is delicious & we celebrated 3 birthdays, where our server brought out 3 tiramisu’s, all with lit candles & a beautiful flower on each dessert. Then they took a group photo and put it in a wonderful Happy Birthday card for us!! It made our night SO special, I absolutely love this restaurant and highly recommend going to Luca West, in Westlake.

    We had a wonderful evening celebrating a milestone birthday with some very delicious dishes. Only gave “value” an average rating because I am frugal but want Luca to know we will definitely be back to all their locations because this is among the very best restaurants in Northeast Ohio

    You can't go wrong going to this restaurant. Food is always amazing! There is a broad range of choices and specials to choose from. Service is great. I don't like it when the server or manager checks in too frequently while we are out enjoying time with friends. You don't need to worry about this....service level is perfect!

    Had a reservation around 6pm and was seated on the patio. It was a little too cold outside to be on the patio comfortably, but we made it work. The bread was delicious. We mainly ordered appetizers, drinks, and desserts. No complaints about the food.

    Despite reservations we nearly walked out when we heard the cacophony noise level when we walked inside, it sounded eardrum rupturing loud. The service was good once we could make out what the waiter was saying over the ridiculous noise level. The food was good and nicely portioned. The (fish) branzinie and the my dish with the lobster and crab tomatoe cream sauce were excellent. However the pesto dish a bit thin on flavor for a big appetite as for substance, the veal tortellini had nearly no peas or prosciutto, very very thick on the cream. But it took us sitting through two thirds of our dinner before we could hear each other speaking. That was a very unsavory experience. We are from Dallas as we're our guests, we would wonder if Lucca would make it in the competitive dining arena such as D/FW, because the atmosphere and ambience of a five star restaurant would have to take that noise level into consideration, as well as having great food. This is why we gave a shy 3 star Overall rating.

    Great food. Halibut was melt in your mouth. Sacchetti was fantastic. I could've licked the plate. Dipping oil was best I ever had. Bread was served in huge chunks, not sure why that was. Drinks were strong but they should be for $14.50. Randy was excellent server. Noise level was extremely loud. Very hard to carry on a conversation. No ambiance at all. It's just one big room with a bar.

    One of the few truly exceptional fine dining restaurants in NEO, certainly on the west side of CLE. The food's always outstanding, the service is attentive and gracious without pushing things along at all. Very respectable wine list, and they handle special occasions with a deft touch. You pay for quality, and Luca West has delivered consistently for our family's special occasions for many years (including an 80th Bday last night! Thanks to all!)

    Food was EXCELLENT (as always, have been there many times). Service was slow- they had several large groups that night. Noise is typically bad there, but extreme. And they had some kind of music that just made it worse. Recommend going on a weeknigjt.

    I would call the noise level loud over "energetic". We enjoyed our meal, however the salad came overdressed and while it was supposed to have pear, I never found a single piece. Rack of lamb and grouper were excellent.

    Excellent Italian food - best veal piccata I have had on a long time! My wife and I dined inside - it was very elegant and romantic. I had a business dinner in the patio a couple of weeks ago and that was a little more informal outdoors, with live entertainment. I love this restaurant!

    AMAZING DINNER!! My only regret is that we hadn't visited sooner than when we did. From the appetizers, the meals, the dessert and the wine this was an amazing meal. It ended up being pricier than we expected, but it was well with it and we plan to return for special occasions. Highly recommend the Sacchetti - it will blow your mind! If high end Italian is your thing - THIS is the place to go! The weather didn't allow for patio dining, but we've heard the patio is divine, we can't wait to try it next summer!

    The service was was a little rough and not what you’d expect at a fine dining restaurant. He was literally throwing things at the table, barging in to clear plates/refill water and constantly touching us on the shoulder in the middle of conversations. There was no finesse. The acoustics in the restaurant were terrible, everyone was yelling at each other because it was already so loud. It was my first time at Luca West and I was excited to check it out since we are regulars at Luca downtown and have had no complaints at that location. Can’t add Luca West to our repertoire after this experience.. it’s probably a one and done for me.
