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 immaculate as always. Whenever we come in, we are always completely satisfied!! The artichoke French appetizer was delish. The staff is happy and the all around vibe is great. It’s totally our favorite neighborhood spot.

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.

Really enjoyed the fish fries we had Friday night. Also, the margarita flights were great! Our favorite was the Midori.

The staff is friendly and the service is excellent. Always a good time at LC&K!

Luccas has an incredible brunch, it appears that each plate is presented with care. Truly picture perfect and taste just as good!! Service was great and the option to sit outside was good since I’m not comfortable inside with covid going on. Just keep in mind you may be at at high top table relatively close to the road. This truly did not affect the overall wonderful ness that is Lucca’s kitchen and cocktails. HIGHLY recommend!

We always enjoy Lucca's creative menu prepared and served on-prem. Our server was very friendly; she goofed one of our orders and corrected it quickly. The pace of dinner was nice and slow -- didn't wait too long nor did we feel rushed. Eating outside on Merchants Rd. was fine.

Best calamari we've had in years. Hubby had the seafood diablo; seafood was very good but way too much pasta to eat. I had the steak with mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. Perfect!

Menu selection, food, beverages and our server were all fantastic!!
The only downside was the outdoor table set up... there were a few tables in the shade on a VERY hot morning, but the host said we could not sit there because those were for 4, not 2. So we were seated right next to the door in the sun, no umbrellas etc. We were there for at least an hour and half and during that time there was always an open table available in the shade.... while we baked in the sun. So that just wasn’t very great.

Our first visit was a lovely one! Nice & quiet, spacious, and accommodating! The staff was friendly and fast (and didn't seem to mind the small kids we had in tow) so it made for a lovely family friendly sit down dinner!
Thank you! (Love all the photos and specials you share on FB--that's what brought us in and it didn't disappoint)!
