    They really nailed the barrel aged manhattans and negronis. Definitely order one of these if you're a fan of the original. Avoid the rocks to taste the nuances of the drink.

    The meatballs are really delicious and good value, from the bar menu, ask for bread to suck up that great sauce. They're not to be missed!

    It’s all Italian all the time these days. The pasta is great, and the main courses hearty and satisfying. Or sit at the bar and enjoy the tiny plates of cecchi, the Italian way with tapas. Read more

    Excellent restaurant. Focus on fish. Get the ceviche followed by the halibut special with the Israeli couscous. You won't regret it. I hear the duck confit pizza is also good.

    The garganelli is incredible. Everything about Lucca is top notch. Jessa is a great server with a great sense of humor and Mike is a great bar tender.

    Very good restaurant. After my son finished his pizza, we got another one because the chef didn't like the way it looked. Foto = Tiramisu.

    Service is actually phenomenal every time. Stuffed cherry peppers for the win. And $1 bar bites Mon-Fri 4-7pm @ the bar.

    Service is painfully slow and inattentive. Especially at these prices.

    Modern Italian fare in sophisticated surroundings. Casey is the guy behind the bar who looks a bit like James Hetfield. He will not only take excellent care of you, but is highly entertaining as well.
