Small, loud resturant with a hectic pace set by all staff. Felt the frantic energy from staff throughout our meal and was very unpleasant. The place was very busy with people waiting and watching diners from a couple feet away as they ate due to no lobby or waiting area. The food was nothing special. I am Italian and recently visited Italy and this food is nothing like "real italian food." You want real italian - go to Ralph's South Philly!

growing up on phenomenal Italian cuisine made from my Italian grandmother I've always found it hard to find restaurants that matched that level of quality, until I came across Luca. it is the only place of the dozens of Italian restaurants I've ever tried that makes me feel like I'm at home eating authentic Italian food. from the taste of the food to the genuine staff you are sure to feel like you're part of the family.

Took my mother for Mother's Day for an early dinner. The food was very good. Delicious desserts.
The place is small and hard for Mom and her walker. They had to move tables and chairs for her to get to table. The noise level was very loud.
Would still go again.

This is a good little BYOB. Service was very good and attentive and the food was great. We had reservations for 8:00 on Saturday night. I might have given 5 stars but I took one star away because we had to wait about 25 minutes even though we had a reservation. I understand that stuff can happen but there were 3 or 4 other parties that also had 8:00 reservations that were waiting just as long as us. So none of the 8:00 folks were seated until almost 8:30. I was going to leave but decided to stay. I'm glad i did but I don't think i would wait that long again. They need to figure that out. Standing in a tiny little crowded vestibule for 25 min is not fun. No food is that good.

Were very satisfied with our recent experience. Booked solely on reviews, Luca is definitely worth a revisit. The food was very well prepared and the portions plentiful. The mussel appetizer was delicious. Two of us had the specials - the Barramundi with lump crab was excellent. An off the menu veal was very tender. The lemoncello tiramisu was a perfect light ending to the meal. The wait staff was friendly and accommodating. The pricing is very reasonable for the quality and quantity. Thank you for a very nice dining experience.

First time here. The food was great. We went on Saturday night at 7:30. The place was packed. Having said that there were 2 things “wrong “:
Our waiter seemed overwhelmed and didn’t check on us.
The noise level was off the charts.

We will go back, maybe off-hours.
