“Wonderful neighborhood restaurant”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

Some friends of ours had accidentally discovered this place and raved about it so we all went last night. It's very charming, like many of the trattorias in Italy. It even has outdoor seating, which, even though it is in a strip mall, has a pleasant atmosphere. The bread is wonderful, and different from any we've had. The Lucas salad is great and has one of the best bacons I have ever tasted. We had the goat cheese and basil pizza that was delicious and so fresh. The best part about the pizzas is that they are on a very, very thin crust so you can taste all the ingredients. We haven't stopped talking about it. Fortunately my husband works close by so he can stop and pick up a pizza on the way home! Oh, and the prices are very reasonable!

“Surprise in a strip mall”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

If we hadn't stayed across the street at the Hotel Amarano, we would never have stumbled across Lucas. Strip mall ambiance not withstanding, this place serves outstanding Italian food at very low prices.

Over several days and multiple visits to Lucas, we sampled quite a few menu items. They were all good.
