This is the third time I've dined at Lucca Kitchen & Cocktails and it never disappoints. Tonight I ordered the bourbon and pecan glazed salmon which was served over a bed of rice and vegetable medley and it was simply delicious! My meal was cooked perfectly and our server was attentive and friendly. I really enjoy this place!

Good environment but took over an hour to get two meals and our food was ice cold when received.

Fantastic food! However, we were seated & didn’t have a waitress stop by. So after 10 minutes, we ended up leaving our table & having dinner at the bar. The food was delicious though, would definitely try it again.

Was looking for some place new that would take a reservation. We were pleasantly surprised to discover Lucca Kitchen! It food was AMAZING (there were 4 of us, we had Steak, Pasta with Vegan Meatballs, Pizza and Salmon - All were OUTSTANDING!), our Server was the BOMB and we enjoyed a great evening! We will be back again!

This restaurant was a new discovery for us and it did not disappoint. We sat outside on a warm early fall evening and unlike at some places, the servers were attentive and did not "forget about us" outside. We would come back again.

Was a little bright and music was more bar than restaurant music. But the menu had some good variety. Fresh salads and really good salmon.

Not excited to find out they had a service fee for using a credit card. Normally the restaurant or the merchant for the terminal eats the transaction fee but they don’t anymore so it was trickled down to the consumer. Terrible to find out they can’t absorb a small fee after we spent 100 dollars at their establishment. Food was good but not worth the price. Will not return

Sweetest server ever who was working unbelievably hard due to short staff. Food delicious and drinks amazing. Food took a long time but it was to be expected. The people who dropped off both our appetizer and food (not our server) put it down so fast and booked each time. We didn't have plates or silverware. lol so I would just recommend that the people just check to see. That's all really!

Somehow this restaurant didn’t come close to matching its many good reviews. Ambiance was non existent. Outdoor seating is four tables on a busy street. We couldn’t hear each other. And the food was really barely edible. Had grilled shrimp on asparagus mushroom risotto special. Was literally tasteless. Husband left half his personal pizza.

We celebrated our friends birthday and treated them to what was a lovely meal. We sat outside and it was a nice warm evening. Service was great! Drinks good but a bit pricey for us. Otherwise food delicious and we will definitely plan to return again.

Somewhat small place but comfy and nice. Service was fantastic. The 2 dinner items we had- eggplant role thingy and a white style pizza were both delicious. Also a comprehensive bourbon collection. We ate early so not real busy when we arrived but picked up a lot as evening progressed. Enjoyed and will be back.

Ok this is not going to be good. What kind of Italian restaurant doesn't serve BREAD?!! That was first. Ceasars pizza serves bread!! Give me spaghetti, then Literally NOTHING else!! A small side salad? NOPE! I don't get it. Charge more money but offer bread and side salad. It just wasn't good enough for nothing else. I feel bad because I wanted it to be good/great. It was a birthday celebration... Nothing!! Offer something. I get that we are in a pandemic. I really do. But if you can't offer ANYTHING, something is wrong. I gave a 20% tip so I feel ok with this review.

Heard great things about this place so we had to try for a birthday dinner. We were highly disappointed from the 4 waitresses we had, to waiting for our drinks for 20 minutes, to the food tasting like it had been microwaved, and the pizza oven being broken. The place was empty and it still took forever. The $$ we paid was not worth the food or service we received.

The food was outstanding. However, eating outside on Merchants Road was horrific (Not Lucca's fault...) the raging motorcycles going high speed up and down the road were just dreadful.

We had a fabulous Father’s Day brunch at Lucca Kitchen. Our waitress Arielle was great and doted on the two Dads in our party! The food was delicious, generous portions and nicely presented. Next time we are in Rochester we will surely go back for dinner!

Came for breakfast. Usually the service is good, but it was bad this time . Told the waitress we wanted crispy home fries.. she brought it out .. wasn’t crispy. Being a waitress in the past , if I saw the order wrong I’d tell the chef to remake it and let the customers know if will be a little longer but instead had to be that annoying customer who sent their food back then the chicken & waffles the chicken was so salty. I doubt I’ll be back again.. maybe for dinner but yea I wasn’t pleased

Fish fries are really good! However, there are no other sides or veggie substitutes for fries :-(
Salad selections are sure to please, something for everyone.
Slaw and tartar are not the average fare, very different and flavorful!
