I have been dining at Luca's for many years ever since they first opened as a take away with a few tables. They now can comfortably seat many large families who have bountiful choices of well prepared Italian cuisine. Their seafood dishes are just as recommendation worthy as are their meals for carnivores. You will not be disappointed in any way whatsoever when you choose Luca's for your next memorable meal.
