Lucca’s cozy atmosphere was apparent as my dining companion and I took our first steps into the eatery at 108 W. Burlington Ave. Low lighting, wooden floors and exposed brick walls give the restaurant an inviting feel. The white table cloths and tea candles that adorn each table combine to give Lucca’s a perfect touch of class.
We were greeted and immediately taken to a comfortable, out-of-the-way location behind the bar. There were groups of diners seated near us, but the restaurant is designed in such a way that we had our own quiet space where we could chat and enjoy a meal on a Sunday evening during the holiday season.
We weren’t seated long before the exceptional service began. The bus boy, an older gentleman, greeted us by filling our water glasses and presenting a basket of bread that included a selection of Italian and dark raisin. Our waiter was friendly and routinely visited the table throughout the evening to ensure all our dining needs were met.
