This is definitely for a special nite out. On the expensive side- steak special on a Tuesday evening was $60.00. We tried two fish specials at $45.00 each and they were both terrific. On the waiters suggestion, we had the shrimp cocktail and beet salad starters and both were great. The crusty bread and olive oil dipping sauce were very good. My husband enjoyed his manhattan cocktail. Others in our party raved about the Bolognese and the Grilled Pork Chop with mushrooms. The waiter was very personable and offered great suggestions. Free parking is available only at the beginning of the Via Duct, otherwise you must valet.

We tried Luca on our Cleveland trip and were duly impressed. Great service, good selection of appetizers, plenty of specials and a bartender who can make a real gin martini. I had ahi tuna appetizer that was sliced paper thing served with capers an EVO. Wonderful. Wife had Halibut served with potatoes and brussel sprouts in a red sauce. I had Bucatini with mixed seafood including shrimp, lobster and scallops. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and offered much appreciated assistance with selections.

Wow! Amazing place! The food here surpassed all expectations. We read the reviews here on trip advisor and chose Luca to eat at after working a long 48 hours at the convention center. The restaurant is in a great location looking out over the water. I love the style and decor. Large bar and plentiful seating, but still feels cozy and intimate. We had a table of 7 and every one of us thought this was one of the best Italian restaurants we had even eaten at. The portion sizes of the entrees are huge, so if you are not a big water, definitely plan on sharing. The service was great, right down to the doorman. We will definitely visit again when we are back in Cleveland!

I had the Pappardelle Alla Bolognese and it was outstanding, about the best I have ever had. My wife to be had the Vitello Tortellini (veal stuffed tortellini) and she raved about it. Our ten year old had the Gnocchi and he loved it - he's also very picky.

The view is one of the best in the city and the wait-staff could not have been more helpful. They bend over backward to make your dining experience the best it can be; do not hesitate to bring kids, the staff is very welcoming to them. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

We had a fabulous dinner at Luca! From the moment we were greeted at the door the experience was top notch. Our server was excellent- attentive, knowledgeable, and fun. The wait staff looks out for all the customers - for example , if a plate needed to be cleared and our server was busy someone else took care of it. The decor, lighting and ambience are interesting and the views are beautiful. And the food- off the charts delicious! Good variety of choices and all of it prepared exactly as it should be. Excellent wine list as well. We will definitely be returning!
