Good! Wide offer of italian dishes. Pizza Parma crudo was good. For dessert tiramisu and classic cassata were awesome. Very nice service, easy parking, 18-23€/pax. Give it a try!

This is one of the restaurants we are blessed to be located near to our home and often the default place for our family to eat if we don't have the time or energy to cook at home.
This is a very well run restaurant that consistently produces food of a high quality and standard, all presented purposefully in a relaxed environment.
On the negative side I must admit the cappuccino is not to my own personal taste.

A pleasure to eat here. Great FOH and always good to see Luca. Fine breads and salads. Lovely lamb and calves liver. Nice to see polenta used throughout. Fair coffee, could have been a darker roast. Not many places better for a Sunday lunch

We have not visited Luca's for a sit down meal in ages and we realized again how brilliant Luca and all his staff are . The recommendations from our waiter was spot on and we enjoyed a super evening - its worth driving there from Broadacres - Well Done.

I met a friend at Luca's, it was not at all what I expected at first, but the friendly service and excellent food made it a great evening. Great selection on food and beverage. The owner himself also made sure we were taken care of, which is so rare these days. Location is also perfect no matter where you come from.
