Overal a very disspointing experience; a pizza consisting 25? grams of ham; Spaghetti carbonara, obvious no eggs used, blend as hell...just cream in there and, well let's give them the benefit of the doubt, 15 grams of bacon in there? No wine per glass available, nice... Restaurant packed with approx. 15 Philippino Staff, doing anything except taking care of their... More

First time I visited, about 5 years ago, I was blown away. Loved the food, especially the pizzas! I was back two days ago with a group of friends, and expect for the view, it was a waste of money. The quality of food wasn't even close to before. The service was painfully slow, people got tired of waiting and... More

Trust me. If you want to spend good time in Puerto Galera, you should not visit here. Our hotel suggested to visit this restaurant since they said it's famous. but... The staff there are very slow to serve, not kindly... And the taste is awful! I never believe the owner of this restaurant is Italian. Jolibee's pasta is much better... More

Visited here many times with both friends and family - the usual smell of high quality home made Italian food was gone when entering the place - food was presented in a very trashed way and taste was far away of the Luca standard - far away! Carbonara was tasting like vanila, the pizza was not well coked (chewey) like... More

We had high expectations of this place, based on the reviews. The food was average, not as generous nor authentic as described in other reviews. The service was poor. Such a shame, because the view was outstanding. We ordered the carbonara, a pizza, calamari and clams.

Very relaxing place to hang out in Puerto Galera. Away from the noisy crowd of white beach. You can have pizza while watching the sunset by the sea.
