Great little restaurant just off Rivonia Road offramp. Food is great, wine selection is good. When it is busy the service does suffer a little.

As a regular patron of the restaurant I was disappointed by the owners blasé attitude when my cellphone was stolen off the table on Friday the 30th of September 2016. As a result of the owners blasé attitude I will not be going back. I think more could have been done or more concern shown regardless of it being my... More

So far each time I've been I've enjoyed eating out at Luca's. The food is good and the waiters are excellent. Delicious salad!

It is a long time since my husband could enjoy a traditional Italian tripe dish ..... at last he did at Luca's! The veal with porchini, the lamb and Osso Bucco were all excellent! Luca comes to the table with a warm, energetic welcome and the waiters are friendly and professional. An excellent wine choice compliments the food! Highly recommended......... More

We were 4 in our party. We all ordered various pasta dishes. The pasta was very good and so was the service. It is on the pricey side though. The Alfredo se moer is scrumptious and highly recommended. For desert hubby had a chocolate cake that brought tears to my eyes - to die for.

Another visit to this restaurant and on this occasion there were eight of us....think this may have been too many for our waiter to cope with!!!!! However the meals he did deliver crrectly and on time were excellent.We had a six year old with us and she really enjoyed the childrens play area.
