Reviews for Luca Cucina Italiana

I've had my fair run around italian restaurants. the cuisine is just a delight to my taste buds in general. but this place, oh my... where to begin? it blows all italian I've ever had OUT of the water. I was shocked when the salad they brought us was not only good, but had me going for a second helping. I normally hate salads but my gods was this place already impressing me. the polenta soup was equally impressive. the texture, the taste, the smell, the melted cheese. it was full review
I'll admit it, I love this place. I live in No. Berkeley and think their basic pomodoro sauce as well as their meatballs are better than any others from the local Italian restaurants. This past weekend, I ordered a small tray of eggplant parmesan--that came with kale and potatoes--for my contribution to an after-church lunch on Sunday. Several people in our group of 25 or so commented, and I believe I've brought at least 2 other families into the fold of Luca Cucina fans! full review

Ordered takeout from here and food was incorrect. I ordered from here specifically because they have pasta without tomatoes which I cannot eat. I was so excited I ordered two portions, one for dinner and one for later. Was very disappointed when I opened my order for them both to be wrong. Also ordered garlic bread and chicken soup which were average at best. Might be a better experience if you dine in but I would definitely skip their delivery service.
