Luca Italian Cuisine Cleveland Ratings and Reviews

We enjoyed our delicious dining experience on Sunday evening. Our server, Rocky, couldn't have been more pleasant and attentive. Our meal was truly amazing. The pork chop was the "best thing I ever ate". The restaurant exudes warmth and beauty from the moment you enter and by far, it is the best restaurant in Cleveland.

Luca went above and beyond our expectations! I took my fiance there to celebrate his birthday and they accommodated every request I had while making the reservation. The food was AMAZING, the view was unbeatable and our server was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable! I highly recommend Luca to anyone looking for some of the best Italian food I've ever had!

Very good Italian food and location. The view of Cleveland and the Flats
makes the meal more enjoyable. It can be a bit noisy at times and on
a Sunday, the service is a bit slower. However, the good Italian food
makes it a frequent place for our family.

I have eaten in many restaurants in the Cleveland area over 30 years and we were told by several friends that we had to try Luca's. I can only say that both myself and my wife and our guests that this is the best Italian restaurant if not the best restaurant over all in the Cleveland area. It is worth the drive downtown just above the flats Try it! You will be amazed.

First and foremost the food was great! I am a big fan of Luca and used to speak very highly of it. However, this past dinner with 6 other people with me was by far the worst experience I have had in quite some time. The waitress we had was beyond rude. Everyone at the table noticed it immediately and carried on the whole night. You would think with a higher end restaurant and a large party eating at your restaurant that the wait staff would be kind and courteous. It reached the point where I finally had to say something to the waitress after asked me three straight times in a rude manner if I wanted another glass of wine, mean while I am trying to ask a question but kept getting cut off by her rude question. I had to respond "I heard you" to make this person listen for what the question was that I was asking. The entire dinner was ruined by this waitress, which is a shame because I took 6 people there from my work which happens to be one of the largest companies in Cleveland. I will not be recommending this to any of my colleagues.

We loved everything but the service. We had to wait for drinks several times through the seating. We asked for simple things like more bread and grated cheese. Server was not as attentive as we would have thought. Owner was walking around checking on food quality (which was OUTSTANDING) but missed the lack of attentiveness by the server.
Dinner was very good but I think they ha ...
Dinner was very good but I think they had one server for the entire outdoor patio. The service was very slow. Also I asked our waiter if he could bring out a dessert for my daughters birthday and he said yes but he never brought a dessert out. He also never even asked if we wanted dessert. I was very disappointed since it was her birthday dinner. The server was friendly, just clearly he had way too many tables so our service was not good at all and it unfortunately ruined our experience.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local as we had never been to Cleveland before. I also read reviews that mentioned the view and the romantic setting with great food and service. We found our visit to be everything we had hoped for and more. In fact it was more romantic than anticipated when the couple next to us got engaged right at their table!

Very good food--especially enjoyed the soup. Wish they offered small plates/half portions as most entrees are large. Menu prices are high but it is a lovely spot with a wonderful view of Cleveland.

Luca is one of my favorite restaurants and have returned many times. The ambience and service is excellent! Always go home full! The one thing I do miss is there peanut butter chocolate dessert..

Yes, the view is wonderful, but it's the food that makes this an excellent restaurant. Yes, it's pricey, but it's worth every penny. I can personally vouch for the artichoke appetizer, the lobster risotto, and the tiramisu. The wine may not have been worth $100, but the huge markup on wine at this type of restaurant is to be expected.

Have been there a few times and absolutely my fav in Cleveland! But this time , our service was so bad that we were sorely disappointed. Horrible arrogant bartender, and a waitress who rushed us through our meal.... It will take a while to go back...

Great evening with out of town friends. Food was excellent!!! Waitress seemed a little disinterested measured against our last visit where our server was a very personal and a superstar. We will be back again and again.

Our waitress was not friendly, did not make us feel welcome at all. Our drinks took forever. She explained that the Bronzini which was the only fish we could order (besides the shrimp and scallops which we couldn't eat) would be deboned but couldn't guarantee that every bone would be removed.
4 of us ordered it. The first 3 were not edible without choking every bite. They admitted theat they were deboned quickly and it was not a good job. It was dangerous to eat and our throats were scratched for the entire night...The manager happened to ask us if we were pleased with the dinners and we told her we were not. Our waitress never asked and was not happy that we told the manager we did not like our dinners. She said, "I told you that they would not get all the bones!" She didn't say that ALL the bones would be left in the fish. The manager offered us new dinners and took the fish off the bill so she took ownership of the problem, the waitress did not.
It didn't ruin our evening but it did mar it. We all like the restaurant but this meal was a real problem. I would suggest not ordering the Bronzini. I was responsible for bringing 8 people to the restaurant and felt badly about the situation.

Great dinner, but the air conditioning was not working and it was very warm. I had the scallop special with sundried tomatoes, olives and pasta. I would definitely order it again. My husband ordered a Manhattan up, and it came in a regular highball glass. He asked for it in a martini glass and she returned with it properly chilled. He had a filet that was excellent. We shared the chocolate mousse for dessert and that was a disappointment. It was served in several chocolate shell cups and lacked richness. I recommend Luca for an enjoyable meal.

We had heard about Luca multiple times and were anxious to take out of town friends there for dinner on a Sunday evening. The setting is so interesting and the restaurant very pleasing inside. We had a 6 top round table in a corner which was just perfect for our group. The hostess was very pleasant and the view lovely. But then the waitress approached and immediately we felt like we were bothering her by being there and we had to initiate ordering wine and an appetizer. Two of our party were delayed but only by 15 minutes. She abruptly took our orders with the same scowl on her face and offered suggestions only when asked. The food arrived in a timely way and the pasta orders delicious but the other dishes were only OK. When it was time for us to get our bill the waitress more or less threw it on the center of the table and huffed off. Overall we found her demeanor unpleasant, abrupt, and unwelcoming. The food was not as good as we expected but I would definitely recommend the pasta over other options. Overall a disappointing meal considering our expectations and the restaurant's reputation.

Luca's has never disappointed my family and friends. The view is one of the best in the city. The atmosphere very romantic yet relaxed. You are surrounded by beautiful works of art. The food is wonderful, service top notch, the cocktails(I had the Paris mule) were delicious. This last visit was probably the best restaurant dining experience to date. We had family in from out of town. They said it was the best food they have EVER had! We will be back as often as possible.

We went for our anniversary, we were seated at a table in the middle of the room, but the manager quickly realized it was in a traffic pattern and told us to sit at the bar until we could get a better table. She even paid for our drinks at the bar! Food was amazing, service was impeccable and we even got a free tiramisu! Definitely going back and recommend it!
