Everything was fresh and fantastic. Good quality ingredients and well-balanced taste. Service was fast and courteous. I would highly recommend this restaurant. I had the chicken Marsala then tiramisu for dessert.

This was our 1st time at Luka’s and it did not disappoint. Everything was great from the service to the food! We’ll definitely be back sooner rather than later.

Another wonderful evening at Luka's . . . each bite was delectable -- from the fried artichokes to the fig bruschetta . . . every one of our entree's was prepared to perfection. We were warmly welcomed, which is always Luka's way and were never rushed. BYOB makes for a more affordable experience and no meal is complete without an espresso and something sweet . . . the only drawback of the evening? So many delicious choices, so little time . . . I guess we may just have to come back -- very soon.

Our experience at Luca's was delightful. His kitchen prepares fresh fish to perfection, pan searing in just a few light spices and sauces, with plenty of fresh vegetables. Our waiter George was most accommodating, taking care of everything from bringing an ice bucket for our wine to not making us wait for our check. One improvement would be if Luka could find some sound-reducing materials for when the restaurant fills up with happy diners, and the resulting din makes it difficult to hear your dining partner. But overall it was a wonderful experience.

The restaurant is a well-run family oriented local establishment. The food was solid in terms of quality quantity and taste. The owner approached each table to make sure that your experience was a good one.

Would recommend for the food, which is always excellently prepared and presented. Went on a Saturday night with an Open Table reservation at 6:15. Had to wait 1/2 hour to be seated. Large, noisy parties. Very difficult for the servers to keep up. Not a relaxing dining experience. At the end of the meal, the servers disappeared and we had to wait and wait to get our check.

Since we were introduced to Luka's restaurant over 6 years ago we have been there very often and have never been disappointed with a meal or the service. The restaurant does get busy and we now use Open Table to ensure we get seated.
Luka's red sauce is very flavorful and in the summer is enhanced by tomatoes grown in his own garden.
Chicken Luka is a lovely dish with sauteed chicken, artichokes, and mushrooms in a light cream brandy sauce.
The gnocchi are fresh made per order and are like " little clouds" when you eat them.
The eggplant is lighted floured and sauteed before layering with sauce and cheese to make one of the tastiest eggplant parm around.
Luka and his son Nick welcome small parties for family celebrations.
We have brought many family and friends to dine with us there and always a great time.

We usually have a great dinner here, but this time our family member said the “special” veal dish was not up to par. Also, it was packed....understandable since it was a Friday at 5:30...and very noisy, and they needed to have at least one more waiter for the room. However, I would still recommend this restaurant since we have had so many wonderful dinners there.

As always, amazing food at a fair price with great friendly service. My only criticism would be that food service was a little too fast if you’re a slow eater like me.

The service was very attentive and almost everyone loved their dinners. My gnocchi special was inedible because it was hardly pasta at all. It was more like mashed potatoes with sauce. I ate the accompanying mozzarella and a few firm pasta pieces, but that was it. I did not take any leftovers home.

Normally the food is phenomenal, but on 7/17/19 it was just OK. The fried calamari and the pasta’s were a little bland. Maybe the chef had and “off” day? Or there was a different person cooking? The wait staff was a little “off”. Normally they’re very attentive to detail (eg: getting refills, extra napkins) but this time was not great.

This was the first time there . I had a 9om reservation and the place was packed. We were seated minutes after we arrived. It kind of loud with the amount of people that were there but it is was tolerable. We were greeted at the table by our server and he popped the bottle of wine for us and we were off. The food was excellent. Almost like it was a home cooked meal. We weren't rushed and we didn't have to wait too long either. I am glad I took my wife there for our 15th anniversary dinner.
