Lucca Restaurant Review: Those seeking a quality yet affordable meal in an upscale setting need turn no further than this midtown hotspot. The menu is mostly Italian, with a sprinkling of other Mediterranean-influenced dishes thrown in for good measure. Starters include Parmesan frites with black truffle dip, crispy chickpea and cauliflower fritters and iron skillet roasted mussels. Entrées include ricotta gnocchi with spicy sausage, roasted lamb flatbread and crispy duck confit. Take a table by the expansive front windows for prime people-watching, or enjoy the meal on the inviting outdoor patio with its trickling fountain.
