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!

While the ambiance was very nice and the service was great the food just did not do it for me. The complimentary picture provided to us and the desert gesture for my Birthday was a very nice touch.

The food and service were excellent, and the downtown view fantastic. The mirrors inside the window wells reflected the sunset! This was a welcome distraction from the noisy guests at the next table.

Birthday Celebration dinner
Our Server was outstanding, lively. Service was attentive and a very enjoyable dinner! Menu selections were tops and well executed!
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.

Such an outstanding restaurant !! Our food was amazing and they honored my request to sit in the Michaelangelo Room!!
Our first time there for Mother's DayI
It was an exceptional experience. We had a table by the windows with a view of downtown. Food wonderful service great (Rob) . We will definitely be back for an evening meal!
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.

Fabulous dinner and service!
A must visit for anyone who loves great food! The view is beautiful at night. Everyone at our table loved their food, Pasta, Lamb Chops, Duck, Chicken. And the tiramisu was one of the best I have ever eaten.

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.
Food is outstanding.

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.

On Thursday night they had a very good singer but the loudness disrupted conversation. Only negative we had ab out Luca.
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!!
One of our favorite reataurants in Cleveland!
We have gone to Luca a few times and are never disappointed! Food is amazing from appetizers to salad to entrees to dessert. Highly recommend!
We have eaten at Luca Ristorante many times before. This last time the food was very average. Our Halibut special was dry and without much flavor. We shared the veal cannelloni and it was sloppy and not served hot. Kind of boring. We have had better meals in the past at Luca's. But this time disappointed.
My favorite restaurant !!
Small, intimate restaurant with outstanding food and warm, friendly , knowledgeable sevice staff. It can be a bit pricey, but a worthy splurge. Not a place to bring children. Valet parking.
My friend and I both enjoyed very good meals in a restaurant with ambience and a great view. The service was both efficient and friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant.

Amazing as always! Fantastic meal and birthday celebration for our daughter. We are never disappointed at Luca and highly recommend to everyone we know!
What a wonderful evening
We decided to go to Luca's on a friend's recommendation and our experience was amazing. Our waitress was so helpful in explaining the menu and her suggestions were great. The pasta is homemade along with the sauces for each dish. After the first bite of the sacchetti, I thought I might lick the plate clean, absolutely delicious. We will definitely be back.
Luca was a pleasant surprise at the end of the Superior viaduct. Service was excellent, well priced and lobster risotto with a lobster tail was excellent. Would recommend and plan to return.

The food was fantastic. We had fish and it was prepared extremely well. The restaurant is a little loud and the music isn't entirely appropriate for the setting. Well chosen music can add to the vibe of a place and help build the ambiance or scene but in this case the music was just a distraction and a bit noisy. Service was very good if maybe a little over-enthusiastic. The food was great, so it's ok to hype it; but the food also speaks for itself and thus doesn't need hyping. Still, it was a great meal and we look forward to returning. They pay close attention to detail in their kitchen and that's never something we take for granted. The next step would be paying the same level of attention to the entire experience.
Great food, gorgeous view, wonderful service
Took some out of town guests - fabulous food & service, wonderful view. I'll definitely go again & recommend to friends...already have!
