Food was about average for an Italian restaurant. Service was decent. Noise level is about what you would expect at a crowded bar on a Saturday night, not a restaurant. You literally have to yell in order to talk to the person across the table from you.
Great food and service but a little too cramped and loud...
CL needs to think about staffing levels. Two servers are not sufficient for a busy Saturday night, much less a busy Saturday Valentine's Day Weekend night. Basic service like bread, water, minimum bussing was neither timely or efficient due to overstretched staff. For a $300+ meal I expect better, even in the northern suburbs
Fantastic place to dine. Love it.
Absolutely 100% amazing! Every bite you’ll sway with delight! It’s a bit loud in there during prime hours but you’ll barely notice once the food is served. It’s just that good! Price is definitely reasonable for the amount of food and completely worth every penny. By far one of our favorite date night places!
Food was excellent and at a good price. A family with children on bright white screen IPads didn’t help the normally romantic ambiance we were hoping for on Valentines Evening, but not sure the restaurant can have rules against that.
We’ve been going to dinner and having events there for about 24 years. They’ve always been great and the food is fabulous every time. I was born in Italy and all very authentic. Our favorite restaurant!
2 is of us with reservations on Valentine’s Day seated upstairs with the family’s.
Disappointed in the ambiance up there.
Had been here several times before...this was Valentine's Day...very busy but we were seated promptly upon arrival...waiter was accommodating and knowledgeable...the menu was comprised speciasl of the day and limited but OK...the sauces for escargot and clams needed to be spiced some...service made up for what the food lacked...will be back again for the regular dinner menu.
It’s a classic traditional restaurant with good food and service but very noisy. And I don’t mean people taking, but servers filling up ice and water at their station and then refilling the glasses at the table. If you are sensitive to sounds this place wasn’t it. I almost wanted to walk out within 10 mins of being seated. The restaurant is narrow and small. Not very spacious. Right off a Busy Street.
The food and service were both excellent! Out server was very friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend.
Food and service are very good but noise level, at lest on the Saturday night that we were there, is uncomfortably high. It was very difficult to carry on a conversation at our table. We would recommend going on a weekday night instead.
Nicest staff! And nicest valet
I have driven by this place numerous times and never gave it a thought for some reason. My mistake. I will return many times. Great food and great staff. Wine selection is terrific too.
Hands down, Cafe Lucci is the best dining experience on the North Shore.
We ate in the bar. Linda was fantastic as always
Great food and total experience.
Good experience as always.
Always the best !
Café Lucci always delivers! While the menu is great - the specials on the board always have something captivating to tempt. The service is personal and excellent. Wine list is stellar with ample advice if needed. The whole family enjoys a night at Café Lucci.
Went for lunch! They have an excellent in and out menu if you are pressed for time! Was all around delicious-- service excellently paced, great quality and tasting food...highly recommended!
The food was nothing special for the price. I was disappointed. But the staff was wonderful.
Food was great! Service was awesome.
Excellent dinner as always. Excellent sausage and peppers, pasta with pepper, chicken parmigiana, skirt steak and stuffed pork chops were just incredible.
Always great food and service. Been many times it’s always great
Dinner here was fantastic. the food, service and vibe is classic and fantastic. I would always recommend Café Lucci to friends. Can't wait to get back.
The restaurant and the valet staff couldn’t have been more welcoming. We enjoyed our meal very much. Our waitress was very knowledgeable with the menu. We would go here again.
Absolutely wonderful. Main courses were branzino, salmon and a veal chop Parmigiana. The food was expertly prepared and served hot. The wine, a rose sangiovise went perfectly.
Fantastic, as always!!!
The food is excellent as always. The service is very good. However the noise level has been terrible the last couple of times I’ve been there. One time was a busy Saturday night, but even for a crowded restaurant the noise level was unbearable. We had a party of 5 and literally had to yell to each other to be heard. The most recent time, it was an average Wednesday night and was full but not overly crowded. The noise level was still extremely bad. So much so that I couldn’t wait to leave. I didn’t order coffee or dessert so I could escape the noise. This is a great restaurant but I will think twice about going back.
Rigatoni w eggplant and sticky toffee bread pudding w gelato, beet salad with the right amount of vinaigrette, salmon étal, etc etc — the best food... great service... cool old school atmosphere. Great bday dinner! ❤️❤️❤️
The entire experience was outstanding!
We love this restaurant! Have never had a bad meal!
Service was very slow and inattentive. Food was ok but nothing extraordinary
Everything from the service to the food is exquisite.
New Year’s Eve
