Reviews for Luca Cucina Italiana

This place is PHENOMENAL. It's the Italian food I grew up eating in NYC!!I've been here 13 years and have never found anything that reminded me of home UNTIL NOW. We had the chicken parm, papardelle bolognese, meatballs, lasagna, penne with red sauce & garlic bread. MY GOD!!! The meatballs!! I mean, everything is rich, bold and delicious but DAMN THOSE MEATBALLS! Luca, thank you!!!! Please don't ever stop!

Luca Cucina Italiana was always our favorite Italian restaurant pre-pandemic. Thankfully, we can still enjoy our favorite meals, just take-out now. They will bring it out curbside if requested. Our favorites are still Pappardelle Bolognese with meatballs, and their Fish of the day, usually sole or salmon. We always get arugula salad and chicken livers, and of course, their delicious cannoli. Love this place!!

I ordered from Luca's for the first time over DoorDash, during shelter in place. It was not what I expected at all and seemed like a completely different restaurant experience from what I see on Yelp.

The garlic bread served on Acme bread was the only delicious bite of the meal. All the pasta sauces tasted like jar/canned sauce you would find at the store. The tomato sauce was literally Ragu--overly sweet and bland. The Alfredo sauce was a thin soupy white sauce that full review
