We always eat at Lucca's 2-3 times each time we visit. The menu is fantastic and the presentation is over the top. The staff are always smiling and you can have fun with them. A very special touch is Paola, their violinist. She make s great dining experience even better.

We ate her on two occasions; food was very good both times. I would put Piaf a bit ahead of Lucca, and both of them ahead of Frida (this may be partly our preference in food).

I stayed at the grand Velas hotel so this restaurant was included in the package. The food is very good: caprese salad and beef carpaccio are very nice as well as the beef lasagna and especially the portobello and lobster risotto!

There is a large selection of wine, is a great place to go with your love one, it looks fancy and it's a bit expensive.

Once again, we had multiple dinners at this restaurant, and every time we found something new; and if we didn't then our waiter would suggest a new twist on things. All waiters spoke excellent English and made our stay memorable.

Not what I would expect from an all inclusive resort. First, the sound was deafening due to the zillion kids. The food was nice, not great. The service was similar. It seemed as if they were more focused on turning the table over than the service.
