Found ourselves in Manningtree today looking for somewhere to eat lunch and decided to try Lucca. We'd been past before but this was our first time eating there.

Went for my friends 40th birthday. Booked on line weeks before. Called on the day to confirm. Only 2 of us. When we turned up it appeared there was an issue, a hurried conversation between the staff and we were shown upstairs to a table perched on the end of a dividing wall between one large loud party and another...

Been here several times, so this 5 star review is not a one-off. Never had a bad meal, never had poor service, enjoyed it every time, hope you do too.

Came here with friends who live close by. The atmosphere was good and welcoming, the waiter was helpfull and made us all feel like old friends. I could not fault the service or food. If I come back to this area again this Restaurant is going to be on my list.
