What a nice place to eat! We didn't see the presumed Italian owner, but the pizza and grilled vegetables were definitely Italianstyle! We thought the pizza's were expensive when we saw the menu, but noticed in time that they are huge: one pizza feeds two people. Not very easy to find as there are also a couple of other "Italian"...

Went to Lucas from a recommendation, lovely location. From the minute we arrived the waitress was cold and rude, ordered a bottle of water and when I asked for a glass and ice the waitress didn't say anything, rolled her eyes and huffed. Didn't feel welcomed chose to eat in the restaurant opposite.

If you like genuine NY pizza like it's served in Manhattan you'll like Luca. Best pizza I've had in the PI. Also has excellent Italian wines, very reasonable, Italian Espresso and Cappuccinos no.

The restaurant has a perfect location in a little bay. The pizza is good and quite large.But 400pes are not cheap. The staff is unfriendly and not interested in their guests at all.No smile,no hello , no good bye.

Great vibe at this place on Talipanan beach. A lot more peaceful and relaxing away from the commercialised white beach. The meals themselves are ok and good value. But the view is unbelievable

The best eating option we've found near Talipanan. Great pizzas and pastas. A little more expensive than others nearby, but excellent food and they can handle a crowd better than most.

Overal a very disspointing experience; a pizza consisting 25? grams of ham; Spaghetti carbonara, obvious no eggs used, blend as hell...just cream in there and, well let's give them the benefit of the doubt, 15 grams of bacon in there? No wine per glass available, nice... Restaurant packed with approx. 15 Philippino Staff, doing anything except taking care of their... More

First time I visited, about 5 years ago, I was blown away. Loved the food, especially the pizzas! I was back two days ago with a group of friends, and expect for the view, it was a waste of money. The quality of food wasn't even close to before. The service was painfully slow, people got tired of waiting and... More

Trust me. If you want to spend good time in Puerto Galera, you should not visit here. Our hotel suggested to visit this restaurant since they said it's famous. but... The staff there are very slow to serve, not kindly... And the taste is awful! I never believe the owner of this restaurant is Italian. Jolibee's pasta is much better... More
