                                        The eggplant on parmesan, cream of mushroom soup and ossobuco were recommended and delicious. I also liked the rack of lamb. All the desserts were fantastic

                                        Food was good for the most part - ossobuco was a little on the dry side making me think it may have been microwaved. Taste was good, texture was off. Totally understand since it’s a time intensive dish to make but from the caliber of restaurant I expected it to be top notch. Everything else was great and I’d still recommend!

                                        Beautiful restaurant. Excellent service from Miguel. Fine wine list. Mushroom soup, burrata salad, eggplant appetizer, and pasta with clam sauce were excellent; snapper was too heavily iodined and chocolate mouse was a bit heavy and too refrigerated. Overall, the dining experience was special and can be recommended.

We had never drank this much before this. The food portions were small but kept us adequately full and not feeling like bloating after a big meal. Finally, everything is inclusive. We didn’t need to look at the price. By the way, you can get your reservation before arriving at the Resort by scheduling online with OpenTable app.

                                        Really wanted to love Lucca. Music is beautiful as is the restaurant. Staff definitely tried very hard, very kind, but seemed stressed, distracted... and it took a while for food, there almost 2 hours.

                                        The service was impeccable, the food was presented beautifully and was delicious. We love all the little extras from the chef. It was a wonderful evening. Highly recommended.

                                        Elegant atmosphere with attentive waitstaff. My husband loved his lasagne and I found the filet of beef delicious. We ordered different salads and split a small order of green noodles and shrimp which was fantastic. I was too stuffed for dessert but my husband ordered chocolate mousse. We loved everything!
