Lucca Restaurant Review

: Located in the heart of midtown, Lucca is known for its seasonal, regional Italian food, much of it with influences from throughout the Mediterranean region. It’s notably more affordable than nearby restaurants of similar stature. Starters include paper-thin, addictive fried zucchini chips, and baked Parmesan and ricotta salata flatbread with smoky hummus, while pastas present spicy penne with baby artichokes and roasted chicken risotto with wild mushrooms. Entrées include port-braised short ribs, a grilled pork chop with dried cherry and rhubarb chutney, and cioppino with spicy fennel tomato broth. The setting is modern and lively. 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.
