Homemade lobster ravioli with butter pistachio cream and prawns. I’m not a professional photographer but how would one take a proper photo of this wonderful dish served in a long plate? I struggled - so please accept this humble shot (lol).
This dish is pricey - this makes 1 pasta (ravioli? how does singularity work for ravioli) $6 each. But man must I say that this was a worthy, guilty, way too expensive pleasure. Stuffing of lobster meat was worth every dime. And the sauce was a delectable complement to it. Creamy, nutty and slightly savoury.
I would recommend sharing this though, not only because $36 will burn a hole in your pocket - but personally, the nutty creamy sauce got a bit too much for me. And half a portion felt just right. This gives you more tummy space to try their other food too!
Worth a try, but whether I will actually crave for this again is questionable.

Arguably one of the best lasagna I’ve had. It looks like an unflattering bowl of red porridge but it exceeds expectations for $24. It came piping hot and fresh. The pasta was of good texture, not too mushy. But what stood out was the sauce. Rich, flavourful with cheese oozing out at every portion everywhere. I don’t know how they do that but they have to keep doing it.

The beef lasagna has its pasta sheets apparently home made. However, it does not really stand out from the other lasagnas I’ve had before, other than the fact that it’s generous with its meat sauce. In fact, the pasta was a bit to the mushier side - which was really not a good texture to chew into for and enjoyable pasta dish.

Lucca’s pride themselves on being authentic italian cuisine, and I’m pretty sure it’s as authentic as it can get in Singapore. Similar to this carbonara, it tastes authentic. Creamy but not from those prepacked Alfredo cream sauce, genuinely tossed in egg yolk and cheese. Great char to the pasta, probably from the bacon - wait bacon !? I guess this is how it differs from the authentic carbonara dish with guanciale. Nonetheless, I am not a purist when it comes to carbonara - and this carbonara by Lucca’s serves as a testament that even if you’re not 100% authentic, it’s equally delicious as well. I Guess the only gripe I have is that it’s too small!😂

Food here is pricey, so I thought ordering a pizza would be worth it, and true enough it was! I liked how think and crisp the crust was. And I loved the spicy garlic shrimp flavour, it was spicy and pleasant to taste, and I would have orders a whole of that in hindsight. The smoked salmon was not bad, but I do prefer the flavour from baker and cook instead. But I think the real winner of the place is really the ambience. During a beautiful weather, it’s really worth choosing a rooftop seating to admire the CBD skyline of Singapore. It’s also a romantic place for couples for drinks, and a friendly environment to celebrate birthdays! There were many friends who had the birthday song played and special cake served to their friends, a rather pleasant sight to witness!
Would come back to try the pasta because it looked so delicious in the menu! However, it would have to wait because the price may burn a hole in the wallet😮

This was arguably my most favourite dish of the night, despite it being a side. The baguette was spread with garlic, giving an added layer of flavour to it. It was well toasted and crispy, and with the tomato dices, basil oregano and most importantly, the buffalo cheese... it all came together to create a tantalising taste of deliciousness. A not too filling started with a light flavour. Amazing experience, although on the pricier side!

Aged Parma ham with garlic, with onions, baby spinach, cherry tomatoes and white wine sauce. From the description in the menu, I did not expect this dish to be creamy. In fact, it did get a bit too overbearing with the creaminess. But I did appreciate the fact that the creaminess was complemented with what I believe is parmesan cheese, giving an overall great flavour. Although the bits of Parma ham was small, it did add a savoury flavour to the pasta. Overall worth a try for the creamy pasta lovers!
Service was good, the staff were very lovely😊

Requested for a change for the pasta to be in aglio olio instead of its intended spiced tomato sauce. I must say that the aglio olio could do with a little bit more garlic flavour. I’m sure the spaghetti was handmade, because I could taste the authenticity to it. Unfortunately tough, my spaghetti was a bit too overcooked, giving it a soft, mushy texture that you wouldn’t get if it was al dente. At least, however, the pasta wasn’t dry, and the seafood was fresh! The lack of garlic flavour was made up with a combination of different chilli upon request. For the price point though, I felt like it’d be more worth it for a pizza at Prego.

You might think that this is an exaggeration or that my words are hyperbolic - but best believe me when I tell you, I have no words to describe this magnificent dish; but of course, I can only try. When it was first served, I knew that by the fragrant aroma of this fresh seafood pasta, it was on its way to winning my heart. The tagliatelle was perfectly textured, perfectly al dente (man, it’s al dente and beyond). I believe it was simmered in a wonderful flavoured crustacean broth and kombu butter, which brought out a unique, and strong delightful flavour that can only be justified when you try it for yourself. Prawns were fresh, and the fried kale gave an amazing crisp and finish to the whole pasta. My greedy nature (and hunger) led me to gobble up this plate - as with food this amazing, it was only a matter of minutes. Admittedly, I was extremely satisfied with this dish, which only left me hungering for more.

How can a dish which literally just means ‘Pici, cheese, and pepper’ taste so refined? Bar Cicheti mused me with this delicate dish of hand-rolled, well textured and thick pasta served with a strong aroma of parmigiano and black pepper. The creaminess from the cheese made the dish smooth, with occasional notes of saltiness. The Sarawak black pepper gave this dish an additional layer of flavour. This plate grew on me more and more with every bite I took, and when I reached the finale, I was satisfied, knowing that I’ve finally had an amazing plate of pasta.

A classic linguine dish with clams, cooked in garlic and white wine. I did enjoy the flavour of this dish, not too salty, sufficiently garlicy, with a sweet aftertaste. The rather appropriate portion of clams were delicious, feels like they were in some kind of broth before serving. However, after a while, there was an overpowering parsley/coriander (I think) taste which I couldn’t stand, sadly ruining the last few mouths of the dish. The linguine was a little harder than normal too. Nonetheless, it’s still worth a try, because I believe it’s still a good plate of vongole, but I wouldn’t come back for it especially because it’s quite pricey😂
P.S. they serve a free plate of bread with olive oil and vinegar and it was so delicious! The bread was hot and toasty. Service staff were lovely too. Ambience gave the vibe of a cosy Italian restaurant.

Pizza with mildly spicy salami and sliced chilli peppers on top. This was delicious, with the crust done right - not too thick, not to thick. The flavour was surprisingly spicier than expected, which I enjoyed! It was 12”, so the portion is huge for one person😂 while I’m not wow-ed by it, it’s indeed a classic pizza dish done right by Lucca’s Trattoria, no complaints😊
