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.

Outstanding food and wine list Consistently great food visit after visit
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.

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!

Food was great except the polenta underneath my husbands fish.
Food-amazing! (The lobster was TO DIE FOR!!!) Waitess/staff- amazing! Valet- rude! This was our first time dining at Luca and pulled into what we thought was the parking lot. The valet came up and said,"you can't park there". My husband explained they we were dining at Luca. He simply pointed out of the lot and told us to park past the arches. Never offered to valet the car. He was too busy talking and eating in front of the restaurant.
A real gem in Cleveland
My wife and I come to Cleveland on business about 4-6 times per year from our home in southwest Michigan. We usually spend a few days and try new restaurants each time. Luca was a real find and we may be forced to return! The bar was delightful and the drinks top notch. Seems to be something for everyone on the menu and the regular items are actually quite reasonable. We thought that the specials were a bit pricey and ordered off the main menu as there were a number of interesting options. We ended up with two pasta dishes which were both superb. The servings were huge! Unfortunately after an appetizer of steamed mussels which could have easily served a table of four I had no room for dessert! Next time I will save some room!

Great meal, great service as always. A wonderful place.
A friend introduced me to this restaurant and in turn I have taken several people there as well. It's a gem of a restaurant, hidden from view, that most aren't aware of. The restaurant itself is beautifully appointed and the view of the downtown skyline is gorgeous. The staff is friendly, attentive without being obtrusive and accommodating. And then there's the food! Always delicious and impeccably cooked, I can honestly say I have never been disappointed. This restaurant is so good I've gone twice in one week! I'm hoping for Luca's continued success and to dine there for many years to come.
Outstanding Italian Restaurant
Luca's is a wonderful spot for fine dining. Can't recommend it highly enough.
Looking forward to coming back again
The service was fantastic. Nice view of the flats. The squid stuffed ravioli was delicious, very unique and the tiramisu was best I've ever had!
I was not happy with the whole experience. I put on the reservation that it was my boyfriend's birthday and it was never acknowledged. We were put at a tiny table right next to the kitchen. I ordered off the restaurant week menu and then charged for my dessert. It was very loud and could not even have a conversation.
Restaurant Week at Luca
Had dinner at Luca on Friday for the first night of Restaurant Week in Cleveland. Quality, value and ambiance---Lola and Luca are the best in town. Our favorite place and people--by far!
My wife and I celebrated our 5th anniversary at Luca in cleveland. Location and views were fantastic. Now on to the service, our server was amazing. Food portions were more than expected. Great flavors. Very enjoyable experience all around. Dessert choices were divine according to my wife. I was entirely too full to enjoy them. Fromy lighting, cocktails to appetizers through the desserts, a truly tasty and amazing experience. Thank you to to the chefs and staff. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. All that have the opportunity to dine here, you will love it.
Great food, service, vibe. Lobster ravioli were awesome. The dish was creamy, perfectly cooked, and the lobster was some of the best I've had. Manhattan and wine were great. The Tiramisu portion and quality was superb.
Can't wait to go back again!!!!
Well worth the cost!! The food, service and ambience are outstanding.
Amazing, best Italian food and restaurant in Cleveland, probably Ohio!
