Reviews for Luca Cucina Italiana

Iris E.
I ordered 2 pasta dishes and a salad via DoorDash, besides that it took the restaurant 55 min before DoorDash could pick it up- the beets in the salad were over cooked, the pasta tasteless and cold and on top the meatballs completely burned. When I called the restaurant I was explained that this is how they serve the meatballs and it had to do with that they start out with raw meat. I cannot believe this BS, all meatballs start at some point out as raw meat. I will contest full review

Delicious and authentic Italian cuisine. The food reminds me of Christmas dinner at my Italian grandparents' house. Everything was fresh and the service was great. All the pasta sauces are gluten free and they have a gluten free penne pasta. The sausage and peppers pasta was so delicious and I will definitely be back to try more!

I throughly enjoyed 100% of my dinning experience. Everything about it was awesome.Food was great. Service was great. No wait. Good came quick. Simple and easy to read menu. Only 3 beer choices.. (as a server myself..I'd work here if I lived in the area). Didn't catch her name but our server with the accent and fuchsia colored hair was stella;, she was both attentive and was able to give us enough space to enjoy our meals. Will definitely return.
