About this place
We enjoy a deep love for the “Old Country” where the mingling of food, drink and family still remain the highest pleasures of life. LUCA combines the culinary traditions of Italy rooted in the heritage of Lancaster County. Our wood-burning hearth and Neapolitan oven infuse all that we do at LUCA. We are a farm-driven Italian kitchen focusing on impeccably sourced vegetables and roasted meats, Neapolitan-inspired pizzas, and handmade pastas. Our beverage program represents wines from all over Italy, craft cocktails inspired by Italian bar culture and an extensive Amaro collection. LUCA is casual, rustic everyday food made with integrity for our community. We look forward to serving you!

Delicious, farm to table, Italian style food.

Amazing drinks. Their emphasis is cocktails based on Italian bitter liqueurs ("potable red bitters", eg Campari), amari, and sweet vermouths (they have the most extensive selection of all three West of the Hudson), but they have the skills and ingredients to take you any direction you choose.

Fabulous Italian food - unique dishes and great experience. Reservations several weeks in advance are a good idea.

The latest popular hotspot. Cool atmosphere and is quickly becoming ‘famous’ for its food.

Oh so very delicious! I’ve never been disappointed here. The front window wall opens to the patio in good weather.
