All the dishes we sampled were well executed. The starters, tho' not particularly extraordinary, were definitely flavorful and made from good quality ingredients — just about what one may reasonably expect from any "good" Italian restaurant.
But we definitely enjoyed our pasta! The pasta delivered on taste & visual pleasure — perfectly al dente spaghetti, beautifully coated with the unctuous richness of a generous amount of squid ink, and perfectly balanced by the uplifting zest of the juice from the charred lemon wedge. Yummmm!
(Tho', for those who prefer more protein in the dish to offset such a delectable carb-overload, you will do well to order an additional side of perfectly done shrimp to compliment the slices of polpo!)
But the true stand out of our entire meal? — for us, it was the truly gracious service we received from Bianca that really elevated our dining experience at Lucca's! What a beautiful, warm, open-hearted person she is — her infectious smile & affable personality is the sort of "special ingredient" that no kitchen can ever cook up, and which can magically enhance one's dining experience with the kind of delight that's also capable of feeding your heart!
Thank you, Bianca — besides the fine food, your service is what will ensure us continuing to return to dine at Lucca's Trattoria!
