    This was our very 1st time at Café Luca and we are already looking forward to coming back. The vibe was spot on – classy yet cozy. And the food?! It was next level! Seriously, each dish was a masterpiece, made with the best ingredients and presented flawlessly. Clearly reflecting the dedication and expertise that went into their creation: you could really tell the chef poured their heart and soul into every bite. A huge thank you to Chef Daniele for making our night absolutely perfect, and to Manager Riccardo for the friendly welcome. Can't wait to do it all over again!

    Food was very tasty but relatively pricey for portion size and the ambience is not quite what I was expecting. A bit quaint with faux foliage and mountain hut. Service was friendly and prompt. All perfectly fine but not exceptional.

    Fantastic cocktails and ambience but didn't really find the food flavoursome. Three of us had the chicken shawarma, but it tasted more of mild curry powder and yoghurt than an actual shawarma.

    Lovely place and convenient from Liverpool Street station, but I just couldn't believe how small the portions were considering the price. A real shame as it put a bit of a downer on what would otherwise be a good dining experience.

    it was a very poor dining experience. I ordered Chicken Shawarma. which was obviously pre prepared as it came within minutes of my order. it looked and tasted very bad and didn't resemble the description on the menu. indeed it looked like chewed up chicken in a wrap with no obvious hummus or coleslaw. After one taste, I found it inedible so I sent it back. I then chose a starter which was pitta bread with dips. that was a disaster too. the pitta was cold and soggy and the dips inedible. had it not been for the chips that a colleague ordered, I would have gone away entirely hungry. he ordered the same starter and hardly ate it either. It was a business meeting and I had chosen the venue after studying the reviews, so I was very embarrassed. it was a disastrous lunch

    Amazing food!!!!!! Incredible textures and flavours. The lamb is glorious; the baby carrots is perfect cook and the flavour is cover your mouth. I don’t have words to explain the pannacotta…..just try it 😍. I will go back 100%. Really thank to the chef Danielle, he made me enjoy the food.

    Service was so good but the food is overpriced and very, very small portions. The warm salad was essentially a small piece of Courgette and a quarter piece of an aubergine! A friend and I shared 4 vegetarian plates, 2 drinks and spent £90 which felt overpriced for what we ate.

    The food was sooo average!!I went after reading all the good reviews and it was disappointing. The dips to start off with had less then a tablespoon of dip! The kofte was actually just nice meat shaped like a kofte!! Quantities were tiny ! No going back.

    Nice meal with old friends. Restaurant was busy and buzzy - food arrived quickly but wine didnt arrive at all despite asking two waiters - had to go up to the bar in the end to get it. Decent quality food and great value in that location. Will certainly visit again

    A gorgeous little restaurant, very bistro like, however not too small at all, just well placed tables and mirrors to give an illusion. Very helpful to have a mirror in front of you when you have back to room. The food needed a bit of tweaking. My friend is a vegetarian. We went for aubergine- under cooked. Falafel- somewhat dry and tasteless. Halloumi and chickpeas were ok/good. Will come again , deserves a second visit. Wine was good. Ambiance, environment and staff faultless!

    Place is nice, service was great and friendly. Large plates overpriced for what the portion size was. Yes the plate was large but small food in the middle ha. Also it was packed with big tables so very noisy, I was expecting a cosy cafe but it ended up being louder than a pub.

    Vibe was lovely, decor was gorgeous and servers was very friendly and helpful! The poke bowl was very small for the value you will definitely need a side dish. The Shakshuka was ok had much better so we left feeling hungry.

    Seeting booked for us was appropriate with the corner and the quieter area of the estatura to. So that was good. Old selection was somewhat limited, but good lección of vegetable dishes available, but the issue was not all the dishes came with the flat bread, so we had to order separately. Shame that only one kind of desert was available, but baklava was very nice with lots of nuts and dried fruits and not too sweet. Good place for catching up with small group of friends only if the volume of music was lower so that we didn’t have speak loudly.

    Buzzing resto; mostly younger folk especially at their bar. I met my son there from his Office in the City. Both of us had some difficulty in locating you not least because the address details varied under different refs eg online. Once there service was swift & congenial. We both enjoyed the dinner. .
