Anyplace with toasted ravioli is good in my book. Marinara was excellent. Nice atmosphere. Incredibly friendly service. Did not try the pizza but it looked good. Excellent sandwiches with generous portions. Very welcoming

We stopped in here with the family while staying in Bloomington on a Holiday road trip. My son found it on the internet and it looked good. Lucca's is in downtown Bloomington on the corner of Market and East streets. From the outside it looks like a tavern and it is, but there is a dining area in the bar... More

Found this place on TripAdvisor, looked good. What an understatement. Some of the best pizza in years. Great selection of craft beers. Manager and wait staff were efficient and friendly. Even though I live in Des Moines, I will make an effort to get back.

When in the area we always try and hit Lucca Grill. The pizza is awesome....thin crust....cracker like thin. We visited late on a Saturday night. We were asked if we had reservations but we didn't...supposedly all the empty tables on the lower level were reserved. We took the stairs to the upper dining room....it is small but other than a...

Great food in a quaint little place. The pizza is fabulous & staff is outstanding! My 1st time there while visiting family, they had made reservations as seating is limited.

Ok, it may have been Halloween weekend, but I have never been in a place where I had Ziggy Stardust for my bartender, and I was impressed. Lol but more importantly, my wife and I have been to a LOT of pizza places, so much so that I might need to seek help for it, but Lucca's Grill in Bloomington... More

We walked in and it was like a scene from the Godfather movies very cool atmosphere. Three of us ordered pizza which was thin crust and fantastic flavor lots of toppings. The other ordered lasagna and she said it was fantastic. Price was very reasonable and the food was out of this world. If you are in Bloomington you should... More

One of the first things you notice about Lucca is the stunning detail and attention they've paid to their decor and atmosphere. The inside is very welcoming, with decor consisting of historical newspaper clippings, sports memorabilia, and vintage furniture. Their tin ceiling is one of best you'll ever see. This is a place that hasn't changed in decades, and that... More

Hands down the best pizza anywhere, especially if you love thin crust. We ALWAYS visit Lucca's when we are in town. We have been coming here for many years. The pizza, any topping, is a must order. This visit we ordered the fried ravioli for an appetizer and it was great. The meat sauce was the best. Our pizza, pepperoni... More
