Great cuisine. Nice ambiance. Tables are a bit too small. Some seating are folding chairs?
I had such high hopes for this dinner and it completely fell flat. Service was extremely slow. Each portion was way overpriced and with very small portions and poor plating. I warned them that I was worried about my streak for the meat portion being over cooked and that I’d rather it be way under cooked than over cooked. Guess what, came out over cooked and I didn’t have the patience to ask for another.
Also we sat on plastic folding chairs crammed into a small space.
At the end we ended up with a free dessert for our experience, great. I still paid over $300 for sub par service, food, portions, and overall experience.
We were not the only ones having issues. We were crammed close enough to other tables we could hear others complaining as well. Table to the right almost left between courses and on the other side they left before their appetizer even came out.
Valentine dinner was spectacular
This was a Valentine's Day reservation and so the restaurant was probably set up differently to accommodate couples that were out for the special night. There was a special menu as well. Tables were set up for 2 right on top of one another so no one could pass easily between tables. We were asked to be seated at a table right at the entrance to the room and we asked for another table. ( the restaurant at that time was virtually empty. )There were nice booth like tables against the walls which were empty the entire time we were there. Yet we were told that there were no changes and we could not sit anywhere but at the entrance to the room. When we threatened to leave, the waiter acquiesced and sat us at a better table (but not at the nice side of the room) while the manager of the evening kept insisting that there should be no changes. The food tasted great but $33 for a very small primi of pasta was a bit much. Not really worth the price for the very skimpy portion size. It is a small restaurant and if you want to feel like you have room to sit, don't come here OR specifically ask to be seated at the booth-like seats against the wall if you must come.
Excellent meal! Some of the best Italian we’ve had in LA. High quality ingredients and great well priced Italian wine. We will be back!
Laughably small portion sizes. We were a party of 4 that spent over 300 for dinner only to leave and go ... eat dinner.
Nice ambiance. Food very tasty but very over priced. Service just ok.
One of the best Italian restaurants the country. Wonderful wine list, great atmosphere. Luca is the best.
It was quiet when we ate but it was very early 5:15 and it was before the dinner rush. So, we were not able to know what the noise level is when the place is full. Our experience has been wonderful there. The food is very tasty and Luca runs a personable place. It is welcoming.
The food was incredible and the wine list was amazing. the ambiance was so romantic. It was a perfect date night for my husband and I.
Fantastic food, great ambiance. The pastas are to die for. The Branzino was excellent.
Wonderful to find a true Italian. Hoping for more vegan options next time but still a good meal!
