I ate here 2 out of my 5 nights during my stay at Grand Velas. While I can't comment on the pricing (I was a guest of the hotel), the food was EXCELLENT! Great fish, scallops and frutti di mare! Javier, Carlos and Sergio made my dining experience perfect.

We have been coming to Grand Velas since 2006 for our one week vacation in the sun. And we eat at the Lucca restaurant almost every night because (1) the quality of food is excellent, (2) the service is excellent and (3) the musical entertainment is excellent. Most highly recommended. We look forward each year to this wonderful experience.

This is the Italian fine dining. We enjoyed this restaurant and recommend it. The prices are quite high if you are not doing an all inclusive as we were. Service is up to the 5 star rating of the resort. Wine selection is quite extensive.

Staff was very friendly but not very attentive. While the food was delicious and came out relatively quick, the follow up service was poor (hence my comment on attentiveness). Our soups were delivered without spoons and it took us nearly 10-15 mins to flag the waiter down (he seemed overwhelmed) to get spoons. We always had to ask to have... More

We were greeted by an attentive hostess who made our stay very pleasant. A violinist was playing beautifully, our food was delicious and our servers were very polite and caring.

very delicious food. make sure to order an appetizer, pasta and a main dish as this is the traditional way and portion size reflects that.

We ate here twice and really enjoyed each meal. One night was pasta and the other fish. The soups were fab. I look forward to returning

We had dinner two nights at this restaurant during our stay at the Grand Velas. This was the only restaurant we ate at two nights. There are other great restaurants on the property that we tried on different evenings, but we selected this one as our only repeat. We had the all inclusive package so we did not have to... More

We always eat at Lucca's 2-3 times each time we visit. The menu is fantastic and the presentation is over the top. The staff are always smiling and you can have fun with them. A very special touch is Paola, their violinist. She make s great dining experience even better.

We ate her on two occasions; food was very good both times. I would put Piaf a bit ahead of Lucca, and both of them ahead of Frida (this may be partly our preference in food).
