We sat outside since it was such a nice day. My dining date ordered the arugula salad with goat cheese, almonds, and mandarin oranges in a berry vinaigrette ($7). I ordered the crab cake sandwich that came with a little side salad, pickle, and three gorgeously plump strawberries ($13... the most expensive item on the lunch menu). I couldn't have selected a more perfect lunch (minus the pickle, natch'):
The service is just as I would want it -- polite, timely, and perfectly invisible when needed. By invisible, I mean that your drink glass is refilled without a scene and dishes are brought and removed without conversation being interrupted. My friends make fun of me for always commenting on the service at restaurants and stores, but that's something I got from my mom (thanks!) and will always go somewhere with good service but may not return to a place with good food but terrible service.
A few other notes: I've been told by multiple people that the wine list is great (though I haven't sampled myself). The dessert menu is something straight out of Italy -- the chocolate gelato is prime. And, for dinner on my first visit, I ordered the fettuccine with mushrooms, artichokes, sun dried tomato, greens, and feta which was a decision for which I was very thankful. I would recommend Lucca to anyone for lunch and dinner!
