Great Italian restaurant and all the food is great, but I would recommend you have to try the crab cakes.

My wife, daughter, son-in-law and his parents came here for a family dinner. The place was very crowded and we had to wait for approximately 20 minutes after our reservation time. However, it was well worth it. THe Casear salad was excellent, as were the arugula salad and minestrone soup. My veal grappino, a variation on veal Milanese was outstanding.... More

Great Italian food. Excellent service. We eat lunch here when my sister visits from overseas. The minced baked garlic goes well on the bread. The octopus was excellent. Good pasta, chicken was tasty but slightly salty. The cake was a bit on the sweet side.

Outstanding food and service, even Niko the valet is great. You will need a reservation so call ahead but worth the wait and the money.

This was what has become an annual visit to Cafe Lucci. One we always look forward to, and one that never disappoints. As usual we lunched with a friend, and can only say that the food and service were absolutely superb. My wife was over the moon to find that her favourite "Crab Special" - served in a pineapple was... More

We were looking for a nice dinner in an area we don't visit frequently. We googled and found Cafe Lucci close by. The decor inside is cozy and the staff were all pleasant. It was early on a Friday evening and the dining room was pretty empty. We didn't know what to expect as far as the food but our... More

We travel a lot and appreciate good Italian food and this did not disappoint. My wife had pasta with eggplant and she enjoyed it thoroughly. I ordered veal parmesan with eggplant and fresh basil. The portion covered my plate and well prepared. The atmosphere in the back room is nicer. We will go back.
