Lucca Restaurant & Bar Ratings and Reviews
This was my second visit to Lucca, the first being a date with my husband. On that occasion, the food was very good, very flavorful. The ambiance was great with just enough energy. Service was great.
Our last visit on 5/17 was a little disappointing. I was graduating from SCC at the Memorial Auditorium and made reservations for 10 quite far in advance, requesting a patio table. My family got there before I did, and were seated at a huge round table inside that made it difficult to have conversations, and I was very disappointed not to be seated on the patio as I'd requested on my reservation. It was not overly busy that night (most of the inside was empty, as a matter of fact). I did not want to make a fuss, so we just remained at the inside table.
The pasta dishes were a little bland (noted by several in our party), but appetizers and other dishes were good. Service was great. I would return, but next time really would like an outdoor table. :-)
I would recommend Lucca's for any occasion. Whether it is a business meeting or a date night, this place has it all. Their menu has a nice variety of options so you can always find something appealing. The service was fantastic and the servers provided excellent recommendations for both food and drinks. I will definitely return when I am in the area.
Tracy was our waitress and she was fantastic!. She always kept a watchful eye on our table and was avaiable to refill our requests at the right times. She knew the specials dinners for the night and she was cheerful and seemed happy to be there. She also made a great suggestion for dessert. That Carmelized, banana crunch was fantastic tasting.
A perennial favorite. Have dined here many times for office luncheons, dinner before concerts and for birthdays and now mother's day. Have had an excellent meal everytime. The patio dining is my favorite, as it is a little quieter. My only recommendation would be to have a few more offerings for vegetarian diners.
I found the restaurant thru a google search and it was listed as good for a romantic dinner. So my expectation was for a quiet place.
Though the place was not full, the acoustics are harsh. I had difficulty hearing our server over the reflected noise. We needed to raise our voices to communicate.
I had the pork chop entree. The meat was very good, but the vegetables were unidentifiable, except for the brussel sprouts. The veggies were burned and tough.
Pity, as the decoration is attractive. I might go there again just for a drink at the bar.
As always, another wonderful dining experience at Lucca with family from New York that appreciated a great local dining experience accompanied by a very gracious and hospitable server, Micah who made it even more worth while. Thank you Lucca and staff, from your hostess to your bussers- everything is always a 5 star experience! Great food, fabulous people.
Some of the best Sea Bass I've ever had. Instead of potatos I had more healthy vegetables. Great meal. Unfortunately, I couldn't resist the bread; oh, well. Chocolate gelato was terrific. I've eaten at Lucca through the years when in Sacramento. Without a doubt, they got it right!
Everything was fine except that we will not use the outdoor patio again because the noise level near the street was excessive. It was not "energetic", just plain noisy.
We asked to get our table changed and although the hostess was willing to do so, we decided against it because part of our appetizers was already at the table.
I love Lucca's. I have been dining here for years. I was left to select the restaurant as I live here. Everyone loved their dinner. I had Salmon tonight with beautiful fresh veggies and mashed potatoes. It was cooked perfectly. Our waitress was fast and fun and our dessert of Strawberry shortcake was the perfect ending to our business dinner.
The ambiance of this downtown restaurant was lovely and the waitstaff was friendly and helpful. I noted she was especially kind to an elderly guest who dined alone. The food was good Italian Southern Italian offerings and the portions ample. Pasta was cooked properly but I thought the sauce was a bit overwhelming and could have used a lighter touch.
Great Sacto location, venue and food. Lots of wait staff, but maybe a little too energetic when our salads were delivered before we were half way thru our appetizers and my glass of beer disappeared before it was completely finished. Other than that I would totally recommend Lucca's.
Lucca NEVER fails me! Another wonderful meal, outstanding service from the hostess, bartender, busser and our waiter, Micah was so pleasant and didn't skip a beat -he made our dining experience even that much better.
This by far is my favorite locally owned Restaurant. Every time I go, I bring new guests and they always leave as fans of Lucca!
The food, cocktails and dessert were phenomenal!
