I had a nice beef filet and appetizers were great! Careful of this one if you want adult only dining. We had to change our table location to get further from a screaming baby. Wait staff is excellent and they had a live sax player.

Enjoy Italian-Mediterranean cuisine and a scrumptious menu of fresh seafood, meats, and homemade pastas at Lucca. House specialties include agnello de Lucca, Gnocchi Al Ragu Di Anatra, Filetto Di Manzo Con Burro Alla Senape served with mustard sauce, red wine reduction, potato "tortino" and portobello. Located in the Ambassador Section, Lucca is a wonderful Riviera Maya, Mexico restaurant where families can gather around a table and enjoy a relaxed atmosphere. Reservations are required.
