Fresh salads, a warm tasty assortment of breads, and unique pasta dishes make Luca's a great place to dine Italian. The waiters are friendly and knowledgable. The decor offers you an escape into the Italian countryside. But the cocoa pasta stuffed with butternut squash is the most unique delicious surprise. We plan on returning often since the owner/chef frequently offers... More

This is a great restaurant. The menu is imaginative, the staff attentive and enthusiastic. The decor (think grape arbor in the old monastery garden) is perfect.

This is our go to place to bring out of town guests. We have never been disappointed in any of our many meals here. Highly recommended are the 50 layer lasagna, buffalo mozzarella with balsamic pearls, and the Kobe beef ravioli. All 3 have been featured as specials and may not be available at all times. The homemade bread is... More

We had lunch here recently. We had been here a few years back and very much enjoyed it. This time, although the website had a lunch menu featured, they only served off of the dinner menu. With entree's in the twenty to upper thirty dollar range, it was too much (food and expense) for lunch. We decided to try a... More

Luca's may look like a pizzeria with a side dining room on the outside, but honestly, it's a top notch dining spot in the Flemington area of New Jersey. As a BYOB place, but with a full bar, your drink choices are many. We stopped in on a Saturday night in November. Our waitress greeted us, introduced herself and led... More

We had a wonderful meal here with friends recently. This is a destination we have never tried before and we are so happy we did. We started our meal with a delicious napa cabbage soup in a light tomato broth with corn, potatoes, beans and carrots. The soup was so tasty! The warm bread basket that accompanied the soup had...

We recently tried this restaurant due to the good reviews on Trip Advisor. There is a good selection on the menu, but the prices were high compared to most Italian restaurants in the area. The restaurant was not busy, and our waitress only had 1 other table besides ours. We ordered an appetizer which came out in a reasonable amount... More

Back in New Jersey from Cape Cod for a wedding, two of our favorite restaurants in Flemington were closed on a Sunday night. Lucky for us, the owner of The Grill Shack sent us to Luca's. Never heard of it, why is this place a secret? It was fabulous. They had me the moment they plopped down homemade delicious bread... More

My husband and I were doing some shopping in the Flemington area. I found this spot on Trip Advisor and it did not disappoint. Bread starter is amazing. Different kinds of breads with humus and oil dip. Like that he left pitcher of water at table. Server shared specials impressively. I had the Chicken Parm Special and my husband had... More

Description
A refreshing departure from the ordinary; Luca’s Ristorante Flemington is inventive and original, all-the-while authentic regional Italian gastronomy. It’s Chef Luca DiMeglio’s personification of the soul of Ischia (Italy’s famous island wonderland, located off the coast of Naples) right here in the heart of suburban Flemington. Maintaining with the philosophies that make Italian food such a delight, Chef Luca believes in crafting every element of the dish by hand. Against the beautiful backdrop that is Luca’s dining room, you will begin your dining experience with a basket of assorted artisan breads, followed by one of his homemade pastas, famous hand-cut gnocchi (nonna’s original recipe), or from a selection of one of the evening’s enchanting specials. The final touch; one of Chef Luca’s select desserts accompanied by the perfect cup of locally micro-roasted espresso or cappuccino. Benvenuti e Buon Appetito!
