Luca’s was our go-to special celebration restaurant for several years, but we moved away and had to find others to meet our needs for excellent food and service. Returning today for lunch confirmed that they are still totally top notch in terms of range of options, excellence of cooking and presentation, and dedicated service. I enjoyed one of the specials:... More

Jason was an excellent waiter. We had a really nice conversation with him as the restaurant was rather slow. I thought the value for the quality of the food and portion size was perfect after a long day of work. The bucatini was very good - topped with mushrooms and a very good sauce. The penne alla vodka was equally... More

The service was perfect, friendly and attentive for our family of six. It's a relatively small restaurant with maybe 20 tables or so. Atmosphere is great with a beautiful setting on the village green. Salads were good. Soup was excellent. Pasta and shrimp were fresh and flavorful. Our teen daughter gave her pasta dish a 9 of 10.

Our daughter and her family live near Keene and we visit now and then. A year or so ago, we ate here and it was quite possibly the best Italian meal we've ever had in the USA -- quite on par with Italy's finest. We just returned to Luca's the Saturday after Thanksgiving, 2016 and were just as delighted with... More

Food and service always awesome I always bring my niece (in law) here for her birthday - they always do something special with her dessert presentation. Have brought friends from NY here - they were very impressed and surprised to find a restaurant like this in Keene, NH

This place really hops at the dinner hour, but also is a fine venue for a business lunch. We were one of 3-4 tables, and the place is quiet enough to talk easily. Nice varied menu, all items at our table were of high quality.

We enjoyed Luca's in Keene. The menu is very good and the service was decent. They asked on the phone if it was a special occasion and I replied "yes"...an anniversary. We were seated at a wonderful window seat overlooking the square, clearly reserved for our special occasion. A nice touch. Would definitely recommend.

This was highly rated, but the food was really average. The caesar salad was not great, and I ordered a special of a pork trio, which had a lot of fat, and was really not that great. The server was very nice, but did not know about any of the wines.

After writing several of my own reviews, I looked to Trip Advisor for their suggestions for Keene. Luca's was #1, I concur. Not only was the meal fabulous (farm fresh food, outstanding flavor combinations) but in talking with Luca, we learned that he is very environmentally aware and active. He is working on reducing his carbon footprint and completing the... More
