Description: A warm ambient authentic italian style restaurant, perfect for dining with a group or just the two of you. We have a table outside during the warmer months for takeaway diners, and a nice takeaway waiting area. Located in the middle of town, there is plenty of parking. We are licenced and allow BYO as well. Buon appetito!!

I'm a local person and I enjoy the Italian Pizza combination's and sauce. Not the same old mix such a nice change. Have had a few Pasta dishes and they are SO nice and full of flavor. Great atmosphere with friendly face's every time. Also think the price's are reasonable and fair.
I'll be back.

We enjoyed a uniquely named gangster pizza and alovely pasta dish. The service was attentive and the restaurant was very busy on the night we visited. We've recommended this place to family and friends for a nice dining experience. Well done.

I ate here with my parents on a night where there was no one else in the restaurant. We used to come to Di Luca's all the time before they got under new management. We were highly dissapointed firstly at the atmosphere. The paint was terrible and it was all dark and just not good. The service was slow and slack and when the food eventually came, they forgot to give us cuttlery!!

The food was still half cold and we could taste it had been microwaved, not fresh at all. My father's pizza was so tiny and it looked like something frozen from the Pak 'N' Save!!
Highly dissapointed and we promised each other that we would never return here!!

We were only in Thames for one night and are unlikely to be back there but I would certainly not return to this restaurant if we were back that way.

Foods great, but cramped and uncomfortably close to other dinners. Very small tables in a long skinny room. Such good food needs a better setting. A bit expensive.

Hello from Di Luca's

Thanks for your comments. Yes the restaurant is long and not as wide as we would prefer, but we have inherited the dimensions and have tried to make the most of what we have. When we took over, we thinned the place out and changed several of the wider tables from 4 seating to 2 seating. These were located along the left side of the room as you come in. Unfortunately you sat on one of the three small tables we have for two, sorry that we didn't point you to the other tables. We are thankful that the food was good. Hope you will come again.
