The atmosphere is lovely and the service very attentive. The raw scallop starter was very tasty as were the tortellini with short ribs. The bomboloni (little donuts with chocolate sauce) for dessert were cute and tasty. The place is expensive but not outrageously so for...More

Restaurant is laid out and decorated just perfect. The staff is so congenial. Food is delicious, tortellini with ribs is to die for. Couple dishes (like the clams linguine and caesar salad are way too salty for my taste but that's subjective) Can't wait to...More

The food was not as expected for the price point. The pasta was mediocre and the time between service was very lengthy. The bright spot was the tuna tartar - the presentation was lovely and the tuna bright and fresh.

The staff made my birthday special on a trip to Washington. We accepted the hosts advise on a bottle of wine to match our sampling of the menu and were delighted. He knew his wine regions. We sampled a large section of the menu and...More

This is a lovely place for lunch, but expensive! The service was very attentive, and the food was delicious. The rigatoni bolognese was SO good!

Casa Luca is nicely appointed, and the wait staff is friendly. Maybe I ordered the wrong thing, but my main course--Snapper with mussels and clams--was, to put it simply--bland and boring. The shell fish were so small that I don't remember ever getting any meat...More

I liked the limited menu geared toward family style presentations. The options were original and well executed. They made a great Pimm's Cup for starters. The spicy grilled calamari was a nice change from the fried version typically offered. The whole Branzino in salt crust...More
