My husband & I have been going to Cafe Lucci's for YEARS! Our all time favorite! Excellent service. Outstanding wine list. And delicious food! Reservations ARE A MUST for Fridays & Saturdays. There's a room upstairs for larger private parties. We actually hosted an anniversary party upstairs & our guests were beyond thrilled with the food. Many have returned. It... More

Fun atmosphere. Went on a Saturday night. It was crowded but not overwhelming. The bread is great, but the rest of the food was just ok. My husband had the lobster over pasta and the lobster was mealy. I had the sea bass which I don't think was actually sea bass -- or it was an inferior cut because it... More

Cafe Lucci is all it advertises to be: good food, people and wine. We had too much time between flights so met friends here for a weeknight dinner. Wish we had had more time for wine since the list was impressive but we ate well due to good service and a wait staff and host who made sure we had... More

Four of us had dinner here and the food was very good and the service was perfect! We all had one type of pasta or another with different sauces. Mine was spicy and excellent . However....we went there because our friends told us they had excellent lasagna and they now only have it on special occasions. Who ever heard of... More

I was back at Café Lucci over the holidays. The food was very good, service superb and a nice venue to celebrate the season. The wait staff is always informed and guides us through the menu.

We decided to have Thanksgiving dinner here and we were not disappointed. From the excellent service to the very good food (one dinner was traditional Thanksgiving turkey and one was a fish dinner) - both were very good. Appetizers were both excellent and well proportioned (huge mussels and good sized shrimp - both very tasty) - we would recommend Cafe... More

They were very crowded (which is a good) but we were served efficiently with friendliness by everyone.

Great Italian restaurant and all the food is great, but I would recommend you have to try the crab cakes.

My wife, daughter, son-in-law and his parents came here for a family dinner. The place was very crowded and we had to wait for approximately 20 minutes after our reservation time. However, it was well worth it. THe Casear salad was excellent, as were the arugula salad and minestrone soup. My veal grappino, a variation on veal Milanese was outstanding.... More

Great Italian food. Excellent service. We eat lunch here when my sister visits from overseas. The minced baked garlic goes well on the bread. The octopus was excellent. Good pasta, chicken was tasty but slightly salty. The cake was a bit on the sweet side.
