Lots of options for everyone but when one of our group wanted a substitution, she was told "no" from the kitchen. Desserts were delicious and presented beautifully.

I have eaten at Lucca in the past and had great meals. But four months ago a new chef took over and changed the menu. I was blown away. This is now one of my family's favorite restaurants in all of Riviera Maya, and one of the reasons we will be back to Gran Velas. This menu was off the... More

Our family had dinner at Lucca twice while staying at Grand Velas. The service was excellent on both occasions and the staff were very friendly. My kids enjoyed the pizza and pasta. Most of the menu options are more gourmet but the restaurant has a more casual feel. It is not a traditional classic Italian restaurant but plenty of great... More

Green spaghetti is their house specialty per the water. I ordered and it was, indeed, good. Nice wine selection for the all-inclusive and they keep bringing more - always good.

Loved the atmosphere here. A lot of people in the restaurant but never felt that I was being rushed or pushed out the door. Service was still the best.

I had a nice beef filet and appetizers were great! Careful of this one if you want adult only dining. We had to change our table location to get further from a screaming baby. Wait staff is excellent and they had a live sax player.

We had two great meals at Lucca last week. The food was delicious, and the service outstanding. Within Grand Velas, Lucca, Frida, and Piaf are all very fine restaurants. We found SenLin and Chaka to be disappointing.
