    We've been there a few times over the last few years for special occasions, and it's always been great, but this last time--I don't know if they changed the chef or what, but the food was really not great. It wasn't terrible, but like, we could have gone to Olive Garden instead. We were pretty disappointed.

    We had reservations and arrived early, so we went to the bar for a drink before dinner. Since we easily found a seat and loved our bar tender, we decided to just eat at the bar. Service was fabulous, food was delicious, and drinks made perfectly. I'll definitely go again and again and again.

    There was only 1 waiter which slowed things down. The soup was lukewarm by the time it got served, although the entre was properly warm/hot and very good.

    Wanted Italian in the Oakland area,not across a bridge. Checked Trip Advisor and Lucca was the earliest reservation we could get at last minute on a Saturday night. No parking lot, so need to allow time to find a spot. Seems some staff are doing double duty. Bartender is waiter. Hostess cleans off tables. Not sure if this is standard practice but it seemed to work although the.waiter said he'd been putting out fires all night. I ordered the Frutti de Mar rigatoni. It was ok, didn't love the sauce. Lots of seafood. Friend got spaghetti and meatballs. She said it was very good. She liked the mixed green salad, too. The menu mentioned numerous times that San Marzano tomatoes were used in some dishes. Dessert was lemon poundcake with blueberry compote, friend didn't comment on it but it looked small. I ordered chocolate lava cake, tiramisu was brought out instead. Waiter said "oh, we ran out of lava cake".??? I'm not a fan of tiramisu, would never order it but took it anyway. It was ok. I had 2 cold Peroni and friend a prosecco. Bill was $100.

    Lucca is always a wonderful experience. I have been coming to Lucca for years and always have been pleased from the moment I am greeted at the door until the last forkful of my dessert (don’t skip the desserts… ever). Dustin is my favorite server but the levels of hospitality from the entire team are outstanding. You truly feel at home. I came for dinner with a friend of mine last evening. We began our meal with the stuffed mushrooms and calamari, both were exquisite. Second course was the seafood manicotti and scallops with risotto, scallops were prepared perfectly and the crab in the manicotti was savory and delicate. Last course was dessert (see aforementioned statement to NOT skip dessert). My friend and I had the cannoli, tiramisu and pistachio pie. All were delectable. If you haven’t tried this gem in Oakland I suggest you do. Thank you Taylor and Dustin for another wonderful dining experience. I can’t wait to dine with you again!

    The appetizer was very good and our waitress was very attentive. We went on a Sunday afternoon and it was pretty quite in there. I think the restaurant had just opened for the day and it was still pretty cold in the dining area because the heat didn't kick on yet. I was a little disappointed with my pasta, it was the Chicken Florentine, which was supposed to have a garlic, lemon sauce. I could not taste any garlic or lemon, it was blend and needed more salt. I took the pasta home and added more seasoning and it was good! I would come back and try a different meal next time.

    First time there, friendly staff, nice atmosphere! Food was good but red sauce was a little bland for my taste. Tiramisu was excellent way to end the meal. Didn’t seem extremely busy so was unsure why it took longer than expected for meal to arrive, or to even get an appetizer soup brought to us. Not saying the waiter was not good, he was friendly and attentive, service just seemed a little slower than expected for the amount of guests there, but I know there are unknowns to the guests that could contribute to that, so not suggesting overall that service is always slower than anticipated. Would recommend this place for first timers like we were, just know it is pretty expensive for the amount of food you get.

    Service was very bad and they wanted to use New Year's Eve as the reason, but it was not that busy for our reservation at 8:30. Waiter said that the entrees may take awhile because the kitchen staff was a bit overwhelmed, but our appetizers and other items would be out fairly quick. We ordered 2 soups, a salad, and 2 appetizers and they never came out. We waited awhile with our drinks and then our entrees arrived. Our waiter seemed surprised when our the other food items never came out. We asked for bread because that was not even brought to the table, and for an Italian Restaurant that should be pretty standard. My brother asked for butter and they didn't have any. They offered dipping oil which was fine, but didn't bring it to the table until I asked for it again several minutes later. Asked for more bread and they said they ran out. Their motto is for their customers to leave feeling like family and that was not the case! Good Italian food is pretty easy to find in the Pittsburgh area considering the rich history/heritage of the area and the strong influence of Italian culture in the area. Good food, but really bad service. Find another Italian Restaurant to eat at in the area.

    A challenging entry into the restaurant, with an exacerbated host who was clearly stressed out. The resto was very busy with New Year's Eve bookings. We were eventually seated in a room with drab overhead lighting, and it took 10-15 minutes for someone to acknowledge that we were even there. When the server eventually attended to us, he was apologetic and he was very nice; a great waiter. The pasta was delicious though the portions were quite large. The cocktail was okay. It was a good experience overall, with lots of room for improvement.

    Terrible service on a little round table. There's nothing like putting baby in a corner. Smallest piece of filet mignon I've ever seen at that price. Placed smelled like bad breath. I would have drank more if our waitress would have been around more often. The truffle fries were horrible and too seasoned. My wife thought her meal was just okay. Salmon and risotto. Drinks weren't made with love. First time there for a dress up date night. Won't be going back.

    Service wasn’t good. We never got refills on drinks. Our Groupon came with a bottle of wine and we never got it. Plates from appetizers were never cleared. Kept having to remind the waitress of things we needed. We were never checked on after food was served. Server was not attentive. Check took forever to get. Disappointing because we have been here before and loved it.

    Lucca was recommended by a family member and I had just been to Lucca, Italy in September and enjoyed it so wanted to go to this resturant. Had the wedding soup and arugula salad. Enjoyed both and my dining companions also enjoyed their meal. I would recommend a print of Lucca at entry not Greece

    Food was overpriced for being kind of flavorless. Seafood was overcooked. Bread was not usual crusty italian bread but seemed like it was made in a bread machine. Not even really good ambience, tables are packed together and the decor is out of the 70s.

    We were disappointed the food after hearing many rave reviews. The pasta seemed heavy and not cooked thoroughly, and my white sauced also seemed unnecessarily heavy. But the biggest complaint had to do with the fact that first I found a hair in my entree and then a piece of thin string, that our server said was part of some string that bundled the spinach that was in my entree. Finding hair in an entree really turned me off. It should not happen at any restaurant.
