Our family had dinner at Lucca twice while staying at Grand Velas. The service was excellent on both occasions and the staff were very friendly. My kids enjoyed the pizza and pasta. Most of the menu options are more gourmet but the restaurant has a more casual feel. It is not a traditional classic Italian restaurant but plenty of great... More

Green spaghetti is their house specialty per the water. I ordered and it was, indeed, good. Nice wine selection for the all-inclusive and they keep bringing more - always good.

Loved the atmosphere here. A lot of people in the restaurant but never felt that I was being rushed or pushed out the door. Service was still the best.

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.

We had two great meals at Lucca last week. The food was delicious, and the service outstanding. Within Grand Velas, Lucca, Frida, and Piaf are all very fine restaurants. We found SenLin and Chaka to be disappointing.

First off - this was one night we ate later (8pm?), so the restaurant was quite busy when we arrived. We were seated a table that had not been set, and was not ever truly set. It was also the first time my 7 year old was given her drink in a plastic cup with lid/straw, and the kids menu... More

We were seated right at our reservation time of 8pm. They were busy...the busiest I've seen the resort all week but still great service. We started with a 4 cheese pizza and several glasses of Cabernet. For dinner the tortellini with ricotta and spinach and the spaghetti with shrimp and asparagus. The Cabernet flowed for 2 hours and finished with... More

Lucca was a wonderful experience. We got to meet and personally thank Chef Fulvio Ferretto for providing such an outstanding menu. Manager Israel and waiters Isaac and Ivan were very courteous and explained the items, they even had the saxophonist Fernando give us a tableside serenade for our anniversary. Outstanding.
