We ordered the meat and cheese chefs plate to start, cheese was too cold to taste. Decent sized portion, but was $25 for the app. My wife had the chicken parm for $26, good sized portion next to my short rib, but the sauce was...More

Excellent pasta and wine but save time to dine. The restaurant was not overcrowded but we did not receive our pasta until 2 + hours after seated. We were not in a hurry but restless.

First time diners. Really impressed. Beginning with the sweetest valet attendant. Greeted warmly in restaurant and served by a real professional. Food was unbelievably excellent and the Fusilli was extraordinaire! Love it.

Opened in February 2003, Luca is where food marries art. Chef Frank Bonanno features house-made salumi, a variety of fresh breads, pastas and cheeses. The menu reflects authentic Italian dishes inspired by the Piedmont, Tuscan and Sicilian regions, all prepared with the season's finest ingredients.
