Ordered food for pick up. They forgot half of the order and restaurant was almost empty. I live close by and everytime I go back it worse than before. I am done. Never again. The quality of the pasta was poor also.

Food was good. However, because the restaurant closes at 2, we were not able to order a dessert. The manager did allow us to sit and visit on the patio for another few minutes.

It's a European sea bass. They crisply cook the outside and the inside stays moist. Light delicate and cooked perfect. Friendly staff and beautiful setting.

The Lucca Café is a hidden gem! The restaurant serves Mediterranean-style cuisine. They pride themselves on serving organic foods, healthy proteins, and incredible homemade sauces and pastries. Their soups are out of this world, and the salad dressings are delicious. I have actually bought the dressing to serve at home. Lucca Cafe's entries are creative with beautiful, fresh herbs and...

Our mahimahi was over cooked and dry. The sauce over it was tasty. Our polenta plate was seriously salty. Would not recommend it.

the ambiance was great and the food and service was terrific. We had the lamb chops and they created a special salad just for us. .

Greeted with enthusiasm, served with cheer and delighted with sumptuous food. Wild Arugula and Butternut Squash salad was divine. Server was always on the spot but not intrusive.

A family visit to a restaurant on Friday night resulted in a a complete disappointment. everything we ordered ranged from below average to poor quality: tomato soup tasted like canned one, pasta and fish were drowning in oil (not sure it was olive) and ravioli have no relationship to the ones that they cook in Italy. Poor service and helpless... More

This place serves excellent, upscale deli food. My lasagne had great flavor and my companion's (she's picky) sandwich was excellent as well. The place also has a deli for you to take home their traditional deli offerings, like cheeses, cold cuts, artisinal breads, and more. My only grouse would be their hours ... we arrived at 1:55 to a 2:00... More

The food was OK and prices were average except for the "extras". My guest ordered an ice tea, which turned out to be from a bottle and cost $5.50. I ordered bread to go with my pasta, and the four small half-slices of bread cost $1.50.
