    The Piemontese Gianduia, an almond cake soaked with vanilla bean and filled with chocolate hazelnut mousse that’s layered with candied lemon and chocolate crunch, is as delicious as it is beautiful. Read more

    If you enjoy watching the back house action ask for a table with a kitchen view. Food is great. Fresh flavours. Great service. We had the fusilli burrata , gnocchi and prime rib. All were delicious

    This is a great high end Italian restaurant. Fish dishes are great and so is any Pasta. Marie's light menu is solid choice for quick lunch. This was a chocolate salami dessert. Ridiculous.

    I lived in Rome for 4 years. The menu options at Casa Luca in D.C. remind me so much of Rome!!! A must try if you're in DC and you have a taste for authentic Italian cuisine!

    My faves: fried olives, spreadable sausage, pickled vegetables, meatballs, fried squash blossoms. Entrees: try the daily polenta. Save room for the coffee cake dessert.

    Great first experience . A pleasant surprise of Italian delight. Dishes truly prepared with "old world" recipes and ingredients YOU KNOW are fresh (by their taste).

    Fantastic service. The bruschetta and the caesar salad were superb. Hazelnut coffee cake was delicious. Will come back for pasta.

    Great place to go with a smaller group for lunch. Food is delicious and all their deserts with gelato are great.

    Chef Fabio Trabocchi comes from a four-star background -- the late, great Maestro in Tysons Corner -- evinced here by the way he approaches even basic food.

    Great short ribs and pastas but be warned- they bring everything you order out at once even when you specify courses. Literally everything.

    2 Out Of three? Ravioli was good imo. Our bruschetta had plastic wrap in it. Salad of potato not so impressive. Beets were okay. One of their desserts were great. Two other desserts were mediocre.
