Calamari appetizer was delicious as was the special beet salad. The bronzino was good but had a few bones. I've had better. The service couldn't have been better. We had a table at the window with a beautiful view of bridges, the flats and DT Cleveland.

Excellent Italian food. Well-executed and interesting. Try the wild boar shank and the veal tortellini. Specials are always done well. Large portions . Miss the half orders. Great Happy Hour - until 7:00 - which works well before the theater. The staff made our birthday celebration very special. Love this place!!!

Our second visit to Luca was nearly as memorable as the first, if just a bit less so because of service. The restaurant was busy for a routine Monday evening and seemed understaffed as we were settling in. Our waitress was overly assertive in trying to get us to make our selections of wine and appetizers; perhaps, a function of her being responsible for too many tables. That said, the service recovered as we got further along in the dining process, so the overall service experience ended pretty well.
The food was stellar in every respect, as it had been on our first visit a few months ago. All entrees, whether fish, boar, or veal were absolutely fresh and prepared creatively. Salads and desserts, too, were tasty, especially the tiramisu nod the cherry gelato.
Luca is an outstanding Italian restaurant. It will not disappoint.

We were seated quickly. We had an amazing view of the city. The wait staff was on top of everything. We never felt rushed. There was very little flexibility to the menu. The chef/kitchen was committed to the menu and special requested didn't seem possible so check the menu and call if there are any special dietary requirements.

We were from out of town; was in Cleveland for shopping and located this restaurant on the internet as close to where were located. Not strong Italian consumers; from the beginning, the waiter was snobbish when we asked questions. The meals - each dish was drenched in rich sauces. Not much of selection of salads. Also, very limited parking so valet was mandatory and was pre-pay so have cash when you visit. What was good - the bread. :)

Wonderful birthday dinner. The best cavetelli I've ever had! Everyone enjoyed their dinners. The filet, the scallop special and veal ossobucco was fabulous! I chose the chicken piccata and have to say I was a bit disappointed. To bland and a bit boring. My fault. Should have had a full plate of cavetelli. We will go back!

LOVED Luca! It's my new favorite restaurant. I cannot wait to go back. Great view, nice ambiance, excellent food; it was fantastic.
My only knock is the bar area is small & in the middle of traffic. We came in ahead of our reservation for a predinner cocktail. We luckily found a two stools for our party of four. The bartenders were overwhelmed & frazzled.

I was disappointed. We had a reservation and were not walk ins. They put us in the worst seats in the restaurant. We were directly behind the hostess table no view. We have eaten there before and always had great seats.

2 couples, celebrating a birthday, had a very nice experience. We had a short wait (despite reservations) and there was no room to sit at the very crowded bar. However, once we were seated, we had an excellent experience. Large gluten-free menu, great pasta choices. Also, for a special occasion, they give you a special dessert, take your picture, sand give you a printed copy to take home. Nice touch!

Love Luca, my wife's favorite restaurant of all time. Great food, fine ambiance; but...... They were fully booked, with a special function being catered.
Service a bit slow, dinner came in 2 parts for my wife, brazini was lovely, not as hot as usual.
We'll be back next month to enjoy Luca ☺

Our server, Lisa was lovely, attentive and not intrusive. I was impressed that when we walked in I was asked if we were celebrating anything specisl, which, in fact, we were. The lighting was a bit dim for our older eyes and when we requested th AC be turned down Lisa responded promptly and resoectfulkt.
As it was my birthday I was pleasantly surprised to be presented with a FABULOUS serving of a delicious tiramiso and a candle. Very special indeed.

Overall, a great experience with great food and excellent service. The views of CLE are really pretty nice. I would have given it 5 stars for food but my Lobster Special was tough but I have to say everything else was wonderful: MOZZARELLA DI BUFALA AL SPECK, SACCHETTI AL TARTUFO BIANCO (these were pillows of wonderfulness ), MAIALE AI FUNGHI (excellent pork chop). It was our anniversary and our waitress took a picture of us and gave us a little memento picture - sounds corny but we enjoyed the personal touch. We will definitely return.

Luca's is one of our favorites because of it's consistently high quality offerings and its outstanding menu. We love everything about the look and feel of it. We were with a couple who had not been there before and they couldn't rave enough about it, nor thank us enough for taking them there! They vowed they would be back, as will we.

Good food, good service, great waiter Chuck!!.....got our table by the window and what a view. We were greeted warmly and when leaving several staff thanked us for coming, & please come back. What a nice way to treat your guests!! We will return!

Tried their Sacchetti Al Tartufo Bainco years ago at an award show in Cleveland and absolutely fell in love with it. Finally had the opportunity to share this dish in person at their restaurant and we couldnt stop eating it! Their Taramisu Di Casa was out of this world! It's my wife's obligation to try the Taramisu of any restaraunt we have ever been to and she swears that Luca's was the best she ever had.
Elegant, romantic, classy! This restaraunt brings your fingers to your lips saying "Muah!"

Luca was everything I was hoping for. It was a birthday/sweetest day dinner and really impressed. The view and atmosphere were excellent. The menu was flavorful and included a great wine selection. Jackie our waitress was excellent and very helpful. I can't wait to go back!

The staff was incredible! From our hostess to our waitress and everyone who smiled and said hello in between, we had an amazing experience. It was our anniversary and Luca did not disappoint! They even sent us home with a photo of us on our special day.
