Great meal for all. Appetizers outstanding with not a taste left of the Zucchini chips, roasted Brussel sprouts, of marinated olives. The vegan dinner was healthy and excellent. Steak salad outstanding. Shrimp linguini consumed with hmmmm. Beef and mushroom with farfadel pasta was eaten with gusto. Chicken risotto again was on point and was expressed yummy. Beer and wine offerings were awesome and flavorful. Dessert was tasted by all but we did not have much room and said we have to return soon.

A favourite of mine and my beloved. We come here once a season and with each experience we like this restaurant more!

Been going to Lucca for many years and there are very few surprises. The menu and food quality are consistent and the service, although not 5 star is always casual and professional.
We look forward to returning in the future.

Waiter forgot about us in the very beginning. They were more concerned with setting up for the huge table next to us. One of our chairs was broken. Food was good. They apologized for the bad service in the beginning and offered us a free dessert. We are all on a keto diet however so politely declined. Nice restaurant.

Excellent service, chef must be amazong the Salmon beet salad was incredible and the chicken mushroom risotto was to die for. We will be back, and soon!

Food was great! Staff were warm and helpful. Couldn't figure out why there was a painting of a large blue goose in the room. But it did not detract from my excellent dining experience!

Server was very good he was able to keep up with a busy night. Being valentines day the place seemed to have crammed extra tables into the bar area. This made for a loud environment. The food was ok I would like to try the regular menu. The cocktails were good and the wine list adequate.

The food and the whole experience was great. Had to wait a little bit for the table and also for the food but it was valentines day so it was understandable. Would recommend it to others

First time but won't be the last. Great atmosphere, meals were delicious. We recommend the salmon and the pork chop. But start with the avocado/crab toast and finish with the banana and custard dessert!

Exterior seating is simply too cold in winter in Sacramento. Service pretty inattentive. The salad was chopped iceberg? does anybody still use iceberg? And the fish was okay but $29. Although we've dined here before, and probably will again, it was a disappointment. Lunch is better.

Less vegan options than online stated which was one of the primary reasons I chose this place

My boyfriend and I had dinner there on 2/10/18 and we will definitely be back! Our server Tracy was great and very attentive! The kitchen was quite backed up that night, but Tracy kept making sure we were ok. We enjoyed the wine and good talks. The food was great. We had the grilled pork chop, which was delicious, and the pappardelle (a small portion but very delicious as well). Overall, great experience at your restaurant! Can't wait to come back any try the rest of your menu items.

Don’t come hungry, portions are small. Food was good. Service was good. Places was nice. But I left hungry and it was a 100 dollar bill

My first time dining at Lucca's. We were a party of six with a reservation on a busy weekend. We used the valet option so parking was not a problem. We had a short wait after arriving but it wasn't bad. We were pleased with the drink options...the Pear Flower was fantastic. We ordered several starters; the brussel sprouts and the winter squash were both wonderful.
The restaurant was busy but it wasn't too loud. Five out of six members of our party were very pleased with their dinner entrée. The service was friendly and prompt. We chose the restaurant for the location and their vast gluten free options. One member of our party has celiac disease so gluten free options are a must. I would return and recommend Lucca's to other diners especially celiac persons looking for good variety with real taste.

Service very good.
Choppino was weak, in flavor & very skimpy on seafood- will not go back.
A new chef perhaps? Used to be much better all around.

Alexia was our server; she was excellent and the staff was very courteous and efficient.
