I actually love this place. Bartenders and servers are great. Food---not so much. Very inconsistent. Wine selection nice , fresh bread great and really good salads. The people keep us coming back. I really wish they get the kitchen in order.

Good morning! We thank you for your review. We are sorry for our lack of consistency, could you be more specific on what you may have ordered? We are working hard in our kitchen to get things just right, hired a new head chef, redoing our menu and training all staff to be as consistent in every area. More

Had the lasagna with spinach, mushrooms and sausage (they combined the two for me-thanks). I was a little disappointed that the flavors weren't a little more intense. Seems like all restaurants increasingly dumb the food down for the 30% that don't like spicy. In any event, service was excellent and food was timely. As this appears to be a local... More

Nice bar and a great menu. The lasagna and chicken linguine was perfect. The staff was so nice we closed the... More

We stop on our way to Shipshewana, at about 2pm. Had an excellent lunch. I had the lasagna with a meatball on the side. And my wife had penna vodka. It has been a long time since we had been to Luchesse's and hopefully we find time in the near future to stop in again.

We went on the Saturday night of Easter weekend and while the restaurant was busy we were able to be seated in the bar and order our dinner there. The mushroom soup was wonderful as usual and I ordered a new pasta and shrimp meal, Limoncello Shrimp. It was new to me, anyway. I rarely order shrimp while out. It... More

Appreciate your review on your food, sorry it wasn't one of your favorites, the limoncello can be a little sweet. I am very pleased to see you enjoyed your service, that is something... More

This is the real deal for fabulous food. Real Italian that is incredible, to say the least. Soup, salads, sandwiches, pasta....everything yummy and top quality. My family loves it here. Great prices allow for the whole family to enjoy. Make this a stop for you and yours.

We had a great time during the Elkhart Dining Days. This place never lets me down anytime I go. Several business luncheons, dates with the wife and small groups of friends - almost always top shelf service but always consistently delicious.

First I will say that service was very good. I went for lunch with a group of four others. We were seated right away and didn't have to wait for anything. I had the fettuccine Alfredo and added chicken to it. There was absolutely no flavor at all to Alfredo sauce. The chicken also didn't have much flavor. I was... More

Went to Luchesses for my birthday. Have not been in a year. Totally disappointed! Used to have great food, but tonight I really ranted risotto. Ordered black and bleu chicken with risotto. What I got was long grain rice in a chicken broth and parmesan sauce. The waitress asked the cook... no way it could be a chef... and they... More
