Maitre D' was welcoming and personable and escorted me to my table right away. Then enquired my guests' name and welcomed him immediately. The wait staff were attentive but reserved, so not to interrupt a business luncheon. The food was plentiful, fresh "farm to fork" and delicious. Always consistent and always a high standard!

I was disappointed. I made a reservation and then got stuck in the overflow room. The from room was quieter and relaxing with lots of couples out for the night. My husband and I got stuck in the back with families and large groups talking loudly. Living and working in midtown I've gone there many times over the years. Unfortunately, it was a bad experience that will make me rethink going there for future special events.

We had a great corner booth, quiet and comfortable. Our server, Elena, was fabulous. The food was outstanding and beautifully served. We had time, three and a half hours, and we were not rushed. The drinks were good and we can't wait to go back......this was a real treat to have such a lovely evening.....

I've been in Sacramento 31 years I've never eaten at Lucca it was fabulous the food was really good and they were training a new waitress and she was amazing . Even though we sat on the patio with the heaters it was very nice but I look forward to sitting on the patio in the summertime with friends.

Great Service, ALWAYS! Well managed restaurant have always been accommodating for a party of 2 or 12! Great specials, locally grown produce and meats-the desserts are amazing! Always on the top of my list for places to eat or n Sacramento and feel confident recommending.

Lucca continues to impress. The menu is creative and focused on farm-to-fork specialties that highlighted the chef's style and taste. It was even better than I recalled from many past visits. Wait staff was attentive and helpful with suggestions.

Lucca has a beautiful ambience indoors, but I felt the outdoor patio area and the service were not on par with the price we paid for our meal. The servers were not attentive and needed to be reminded to refill our beverages multiple times. We were also seated in a corner of the outdoor seating that was almost crammed into the space - corner upfront. In the winter months, the outdoor patio is covered with a loose tent which allows some cold air in. It really would have been fine, as the cool air is balanced with the heating lamps, but our table was placed so closely to the other tables around us, we were not able to get in and out comfortably. Those in the tables around us also had some trouble getting in and out because of the way the tables were laid out. For the amount you are paying for the meal, seemingly little things like table layout make a world of difference. Customers should not have such trouble getting in and out of their seats. Losing one table would give the appropriate room for comfort. I understand the need to keep the restaurant filled, but really, a place as elegant as Lucca is seeming to be should be more concerned with aesthetic and comfort. The food was ok, though a bit salty. It was a disappointing experience as I'd heard such great things about Lucca. In my mind, this experience has left a soured impression of Lucca.

All of the food was delicious. I had the arugula salad. So yummy. I don't serve arugula at home because my DH doesn't care for it. So I will eat it whenever possible when we dine out. Everything was very fresh. I had the crispy duck confit. A nice heat from the chorizo. Large portion of duck. The two others had the spaghetti and meatballs and the short ribs. All were very good. We shared the banana dessert which was different and delicious. We will return to Lucca hopefully very soon.

We love to eat at Lucca's anytime we are in the downtown area. The menu and friendly, conscientious staff makes it a wonderful place to eat. We prefer the quiet, cozy atmosphere over the other restaurants located in the same area.

I was very impressed with this restaurant. Our waiter was very patient and well-informed of the menu items and recommendations. The ambiance was very nice; elegant but not too posh. The bar is nicely set apart but also not too far. The food was delicious. We had 4 in our party with different dietary needs. I got to taste most of the food and it was all excellent. The only recommendation I would give to the restaurant is that the windows need to be cleaned. It looks like they haven't been cleaned for a long time. However, the ambiance and the food far outweigh this tiny pointer.
