My wife & I shared the Valentine's Day Dinner for Two. Everything item we chose was outstanding. Each course was delicious and cooked to perfection. And the service was fantastic. Eating at Lucca Kitchen and Cocktails is a delight.

I did not feel it all safe in the restaurant. There were many people at the bar without masks the entire time we were there. The restaurant was quite crowded and very noisy. I don’t think I will return as long as the pandemic is in full swing

As usual, great food at reasonable prices. Friday fish fry is a must. Tried the pasta dish Luella for first time - won’t be my last. Good draft beer selection, friendly new bar tender.

The food here is always fantastic. The service is great. We usually sit outside which we enjoy. We were seated inside once because of rain and it has a nice atmosphere. We eat early, so the noise level was ok. Lucca has quickly become one of my favorite restaurants in Rochester.

Service was amazing, generous portions and wonderful atmosphere created by the warm staff. The only ding I would give is that my partner's omelette was way over done and the lamb meat was gamey - a small thing but just going for 100% transperency. Can't wait to go again for happy hour/dinner.

If I had to rate this restaurant a 1 out of 10; I’d give it a 6. We were seated immediately (Had a Rez through open table). Received out waters quickly. Waitress was timely; got our drinks 🍷 🍺 ordered and served quickly.
We had the meatball as an appetizer, which was excellent. Had the pear 🍐 salad from the specials menu; also excellent. We waited over 40 minutes for our dinner. In the meantime our server gave us a round of drinks on the house, apologetic for the wait, which was cool.
We weren’t impressed with our dinners. I got the pecan salmon, husband got the chicken Parmesan, and my daughter got the rigatoni and meatball. Pasta was crunchy, salmon was overcooked, chicken Parmesan sauce was overcooked, had a burnt taste.
So, all in all; service was great. The customer service was best. Atmosphere was clean and inviting. Food was just okay.
Maybe I’ll try again. Perhaps it was an off day.
Just my two cents. 🙋🏽‍♀️✌🏼

We loved everything about Lucca Kitchen & Cocktails. We made reservations ahead of time and were sat promptly. Our waiter was professional and very personable. He asked the bartender to make a pumpkin martini for me, and it was delicious. The food was excellent and was brought to our table in a timely but manner. We never felt rushed. We will definitely return when we are in the Rochester area.

The food was awful! The pasta dishes we ordered tasted like they had been premade and then reheated. Not what you would expect at a higher end Italian restaurant for the prices we paid. We wanted to try somewhere new but this will be our 1st and last time going there. It’s unfortunate because the restaurant itself was very cute and the service was great but if the food isn’t good those other things don’t really matter.

This was our third visit and first during COVID. We had dinner inside. Service was very good. And quick! Decent number of diners. Food was good - had shrimp with risotto. $1 draft beer special tasted a bit “old” but I had a canned beer.

We were seated immediately. The server was very pleasant and helpful. She promptly served beverages and explained the specials. Our food was very tasty. Overall we thought everything was good. Our only disappointment was that no bread was offered and salads were an extra cost with two of the meals. The service was exemplary.
