“Very delicious food! A little bit pricey though”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

Went here for an evening with some friends. The atmosphere was excellent. Had some wine. Ordered the calamari as an appetizer to share. The calamari was amazingly tender! I ordered the lamb chops as an entree which was amazing as well. The dish was $33 though which was a little bit pricey to me. Nevertheless, great food! Would go back here for special occasions.

“Special service in a cute neighborhood”
Reviewed 2 June 2013

My husband and our friend and I were looking for a quick drink at around 4:15 in the afternoon. We walked up to Lucca, but were told they didn't open until 5. The employee we were talking to was giving us some suggestions of where to go when the owner came out and said "you guys want drinks? Come on in." He opened his restaurant, sat us at the bar, and mixed us three beautiful and delicious martinis, even hand-stuffing blue cheese in the olives for the dirty martinis. I was so impressed and really wish we could have made it back for dinner before we left town. This is the kind of place I would go to again and again for that kind of service!

“A Trusted Friend”
Reviewed 16 May 2013

Located in the Oakland neighborhood, the university district, it is one of the few fine dining places there. They have a good list of specials. Very good for parents visiting students for a special night out.

“Amazingly gracious”
Reviewed 24 April 2013

I recently hosted a friend's visit to the city and we spent one evening at Lucca's. From the very first moment when we asked for an alternate table a bit out of the way, to the last moment when we left, the quiet gracefulness of our waiter, Fraser, and the rest of the staff was transformative. Serving a meal is an art and our waiter appeared not in some inopportune routine, but precisely at the moments when we might have needed or wanted anything. His ability to anticipate us was remarkable --and so very genuine. He cleared plates and brought new courses just when we would be ready for them. His refined professionalism was balanced with his interest in making our particular visit as pleasurable as possible. He even noticed that we were looking towards the liqueurs after dinner and immediately returned asking if we would like one with our espressos. The meal itself was exquisite. Everything was delicately but clearly seasoned, making each dish unique and memorable. The atmosphere in general was refreshingly respectful and inviting --as if we had just come to the home of an old friend in Italy and were being entertained with the best our host could offer. Thank you for an evening that was not only a beautiful meal, but also a relaxing and renewing evening. I will continue to bring guests to Lucca's and return as often as possible myself.
