Luca Italian Cuisine Ratings and Reviews

Food was delicious, service was below average. Our entire meal was rushed and our waitress could not get us out of there fast enough. The pace of the meal was terrible - our salads arrived the second we ordered them and as soon as those were cleared, our entrees arrived. We never even got to see a dessert menu - immediately after our entrees, they brought a piece of tiramisu for my birthday (it was complimentary but still would have liked to see what else they had!). We could not enjoy our bottle of wine or the atmosphere because our small table was constantly full with the next course arriving. Overall, turned off by the servers and their attitudes.

Really an excellent meal. My wife had the sacchetti which was phenomenal. I had the lobster risotto. It was the first time in my life I left lobster on the plate. Not because it wasn't delicious but because there was so much of it. I highly recommend this place.

We live in California and were in Cleveland to celebrate my husband's birthday with his mother. The dinner was awesome. The waiter Chuck was very attentive. We were impressed that the manager/ owner came by to check on us. We are looking forward to return to Luca in our next visit.

This restaurant is now one of my favorites in Cleveland. The food was amazing, and the service was outstanding. We had a table overlooking the water and the city, and it just added to the experience. I would highly recommend it!

My husband and I had dinner at Luca to celebrate my birthday and our anniversary. The food was amazing! The service was a bit slow, but we weren't in a rush so it didn't impact my impression of the restaurant. Can't wait to go back and try different items on the menu.

Wonderful views of the Cleveland skyline enhanced our meal by Chef Luca. My husband had fried baby artichokes and a lobster ravioli that he devoured. I started with mozzarella, speck and red pepper salad, then enjoyed veal saltimbocca with roasted potatoes and a shaved brussel sprout dish - all were divine! We capped the evening with a light, airy cheesecake (just the way I like it) served over a fig sauce that added an unexpected flavor. Outstanding! We will be back!
Incredible food...but noisy
I had the duck...it was magnificent! Wife had the Veal medallions...equally as good. The place is VERY noisy...almost no matter where you sit. It could be romantic if it was not such an echo chamber. Add to that the weird rock music they were playing as background music and it was a little over the top.

Fresh, light and amazing sauces. Great wines and cocktails. Desserts are amazing. When the servers can describe the food and make recommendations that exceed your expectations you are in the right place. Excited to go back.
We were not a fan of the place. It seems overpriced. The calamari was good, but we ordered 2 of the beet salad specials and they brought the entrees out immediately after the appetizer. They offered to bring them after the meals, but we don't eat salad for dessert. They should have taken the entrees back and refired them. The veal saltimbocca was very bland, the lobster ravioli was decent, but not memorable. It was our anniversary too and the waiter apologized, but didn't provide a dessert or do anything to make up for it. It really put a damper on the evening. There are much better restaurants in the area. Plus $5 for valet before tip and not all tables have views. We will not be back.

The nightly special, collet steak was a disappointment. Although it was cooked perfectly to medium rare, it was a very tough piece of meat. The slow cooked meats and sauces were better. The manager did offer to take it off the check, which I declined and they did buy us a dessert and limoncello. This visit the food was not quite as good as the view of downtown Cleveland, which is enviable. Service was very good and the atmosphere was very nice.

The food and drinks were excellent. I wrote a request when reserving that we were celebrating my husbands birthday and we wanted a table with a nice view. They seated us next to the window with a nice view of downtown with sunset and our waitress brought tiramisu with a candle for his birthday. It's the nice little touches that make all the difference in the hospitality industry. They were fantastic. Looking forward to dining there again soon.
Incredible Presentation and Delicious Food!
We chose this restaurant based on the reviews of other diners and we were not disappointed! From the moment we stepped in the door, the staff was friendly and welcoming, the menu was broad and inventive and the food was incredible! Even the prices were fair! We will return here on our next trip to Cleveland for sure!!
