Even if Lucca weren't in my neighborhood, I'd say it is one of Portland's best. Creative menu, comfortable dining atmosphere. Kid-friendly without losing the overall relaxed vibe of the place.

Lucca is one of our favorite restaurants. They didn't disappoint us on Saturday evening. Their dining month menu is outstanding! Also, they took care to seat parties at least one table apart from each other (more than 6 feet), in case folks are concerned.

We have been to Lucca several times and always for special occasions. The food is always consistently wonderful. Everyone truly enjoyed their entrees. This is our special place, so we will eat there again.

We went for Portland Dining Month and the menu was wonderful. And restaurant did a great job of seating people loosely to support social distancing recommendations.

Great neighborhood lunch spot. My friend had the chicken pesto salad which was yummy and a 5. My lentil soup was pretty good and the broccoli with bean puree was also yummy.

The food was very good but nothing super memorable. The dungeoness crab and citrus salad was good but needed more citrus and the other dishes were also good but not fantastic. I loved the pana cotta with pomegranate and pistacchios. Drink service was a little slow, but overall this is definitely a solid restauarant.

It was dinner with a good friend—lots of chit-chat and shared stories. Our server, John, was nothing short of primo. The food, terrific.

A memorable evening!

I would give it a B-. The food was okay, nothing really made me want to come back for more. We ordered drinks first but did not get them until 1/2 way through our meal. The short rib was under seasoned, the olive oil cake was rather dense and still had plastic wrap stuck to the bottom on it. The best bite I took was the nutella gelato. Overall wasn't bad, just okay. It did not make the list of of restaurants we gotta go back to.

My spouse and I recently enjoyed a dinner at Lucca with some friends. Cocktails were wonderful and arrived in a timely fashion. The food was well prepared and presented, including the chicken liver mousse as an appetizer and several pasta dishes between the four of us. We included some wood fired carrots and an affogato for dessert. Our server was attentive without being obtrusive and when we asked for descriptions or more information, he was helpful. We talked for another 15 minutes or so after finishing and no one rushed us.

Dependable neighborhood place that's worth going out of the way for. Attention to detail, freshness, flavor is obvious. Fresh pasta was chewy and perfect, with a delicious combination of duck and squash. Tables are close together, so your experience is affected by your neighbors; ours were pretty loud, but the food was so good we didn't mind.

Lucca is the best restaurant we can easily walk to, which is a big plus (and judging from the crowd waiting when we left, many others feel this wary, too). The food is good, reasonably priced, the servers attentive to our needs, and it is fun eating there and watching the folks gathered at the bar.

The food was delicious, the ambiance perfect but our server was subpar. She was dismissive bordering on rude, never checked in with us to see if we needed anything and brought the wrong entree. When she brought the wrong entree and we corrected her, very politely, she said that wasn’t what she heard. She did try to make up for it at the end of the meal but there was a lot to make up for.

Server was great. Erica. Wine was food. Brunello. My favorite. Clams were in this incredible spicy sauce that was outstanding. Much better than anything I’ve tasted especially in the tourist town i live in. The octopus was a little disappointing. Chewy and lacked some flavor.

We’d only eaten here for lunch before, which was quite good. Dinner was even better ... excellent. The pork was cooked to a sublime tenderness. We brought our own wine, but I recall from the earlier luncheon that Lucas’s wine offerings were interesting. We chose then an excellent Slovenian white at a very reasonable price.

Dinner was delicious. Our wait staff was knowledgeable about the wine and he gave us plenty of time between the appetizers and bringing our dinner. We had the charcuterie salami board with the fresh mozzarella cheese, Wow! The homemade Tagliatelle pasta dish with the pork bolognese sauce was heavenly. I would highly recommend this lovely little restaurant.

I have always had a good experience here. This last time however, the entrees were both off. The pork shoulder tasted like a salt like and the tagliatelle didn’t taste like anything. Service was great, as always. Sad about the food though
