Our next installment in the SacFoodies patio dining series takes us to one of my local favorites, Lucca.
I have visited Lucca for both quick weekday lunches and longer, celebratory dinners and I have to say that the patio is perfect for either. There is just something about their lush, Mediterranean-inspired garden feel that makes you want to kick back and stay awhile.
Besides the ambiance, Lucca boasts comprehensive lunch, dinner, and happy hour menus. I highly recommend the Patchwork Salad, pictured below. They also have delicious drink and dessert options for those just looking for a small treat. Lucca also offers banquet sized dining options and private rooms for special occasions.
