Lucca has become my favorite restaurant in Pittsburgh for a number of reasons. The food always is great: the pasta excellent, the seafood superb, the appetizers always delicious. I find the wine list to be accommodating for whatever type of meal you want, and the range of selection is good. I have taken many friends to Lucca, and all have had a good time. There have been a few times when we've had to wait for a table, but that wait was made more than bearable by the time spent at the bar. The bartenders are friendly as is the wait staff; they see to your needs in a professional and polite manner. Often, one of the owners is on hand and will stop at your table to check on you in an amiable manner that is never intrusive. The ambiance of the place lends itself to an intimate dining experience; the interior is cozy and elegant—warm, abstract works by Pittsburgh artist Virgil Cantini contribute to the interior dining experience. The patio is my favorite spot in warm weather. It sits above the street and gives diners a dedicated space that isn't interrupted by passersby. Having an elegant place to eat outdoors in Pittsburgh is a rarity in this city. Check it out for yourself—Lucca is great.

Lucca Ristorante has been consistent in its food quality, diversity of seasonal menu items, wine selections, and most notably attention to details! Just yesterday, friends requested to have our annual reunion luncheon scheduled at Lucca on their patio! The risotto is my favorite closely followed by Chef Eric's penne with prosciutto ! Pleasant wait staff and Italian-inspired ambience make every trip memorable. Lastly, the entire restaurant is clean and well maintained, which is something I demand when eating out!
Lucca is a beautiful upscale restaurant with amazing food. The spicy pasta with shrimp and crab is to die for. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. If you are able to visit during warmer weather, dining on the covered porch is a real treat. This is my favorite restaurant in Pittsburgh. I always choose Lucca for special occasions such as birthday, anniversary, etc. you will not be disappointed!!
I love it when Chef Eric makes dinner! The Frutti de Mare Con Penne is an all time favorite, a seafood pasta with a spicy tomato basil sauce, yum! Great food and good service, everytime.
Visited Lucca to celebrate our anniversary. We were seated on the outdoor patio. Beautiful night. Wonderful food. Excellent service. Thank you Lucca!
Great service, great food, great ambiance. Every time I am in Pittsburgh, I make sure to visit Lucca.
