“Trust the Townies...”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Meat-eater? Ala Baldini with Anchovies.
Veggie-Lover? Oh, you're covered.
Best thin crust pizza. Beer. Friendly Locals.
Come early to enjoy the first floor bar seating or make reservation.

“Famished feasting!”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Imagine being tired, hungry, and travel-worn and just want some decent food and a drink. Lucca's was a 'Cheers' moment for us on a late Thursday night. Local neighborhood bar energy, best sausage-mushroom pizza we've ever had, rea$onable, and great service. GO!!!

“Great pizza, great atmosphere”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Awesome thin and crispy pizza---and I usually prefer thicker crust at other places! Many celebrities who come to perform (or speak at one of the colleges) are brought here, for good reason. Sit downstairs if you can, since the upstairs is just a typical dining area. Order the meat fried ravioli for an appetizer, and a Baldini pizza for your entree.

“The real Cheers!”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

If you want a historical place with great atmosphere and a fun staff, Lucca is the place. Great pizza. You must try the ALA Baldini. Tony and Johnny are the friendliest managers whether it is your 1st visit or you're a regular (which there are a lot of). Eat in the bar for the best atmosphere but make reservations or come after 9. Just a fun place to hang out

“A must-do when coming to Bloomington!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This place is awesome and the food is wonderful! The atmosphere, smells, decor takes you back in time. When you go to Bloomington, you must experience Lucca! Lots of choices for food if you don't want pizza. However, if you are a true pizza lover you must have the Ala Baldini pizza!
