Love the pizzas, cooked fresh and taste good! Haven't tried the pasta. The dessert menu could do with a change as its the same old all the time. Nice settings and restaurants building has a lovely character.

Lucca Enoteca is without a doubt my favourite restaurant. I have visited many times over the years and my last visit did not disappoint. I received a warm welcome from the friendly staff who were polite and efficient during our evening. I ordered the Fiorentina pizza which arrived quickly and was very tasty. The restaurant always has a great atmosphere... More

Regularly visit Lucca's mainly because the pizza is the best we have had outside of Italy. This visit was with my mum (who had never been before) and my sister for joint birthday celebrations. We all shared two pizzas which was no trouble at all. Both stunning. All plates clean. Then had a scrummy pizza nutella! Wow! Very pleased mum.... More

The food is good, however they never change the menu. If you go there regularly as we do ,it would be nice to have something different occasionally .

I met a friend here today for lunch. We spent a good two hours over our meal which was beautifully cooked and served with a smile. There is only one small improvement that I feel would be an advantage and that is the addition of a handrail to the steps down to the ladies toilet. It was a wet day... More

Have been here before without booking a table and the experience was good. However, I would suggest to diners DO NOT pre-book a table. We did this for last Saturday evening, having booked weeks in advance as a birthday treat. We were given a table for five which quite frankly is not suitable for five right by the stairs and...

My wife and I eat here often. Service is good. Food is lovely and prices aren't too expensive. The Spaghetti Carbonara is gorgeous, but their Cheese and Pesto Garlic Bread is to die for. AND they serve Peroni on tap. What more could you ask for 😀

Been here lots of times - most recently last week. Food is consistently good which is why we return regularly. Service can be inconsistent and last week service was a little slow with an inattentive waitress who didn't check on us as much as normal so when we wanted more drinks we just made sure we flagged someone down. Won't... More

Food was great, couldn't fault it. Was cooked and served quickly but wasn't rushed. Service was brilliant - young man at the front of house clearly enjoys his job and it shows. Have recommended to friends and work colleagues.
