Having been in business for  7 and a half years, Lucca Bar & Grill has found what Benicia was looking for:  An establishment with a friendly atmosphere, great food and drinks, and lasting friendships. We are proud of the fact that our clientele includes locals of all walks of life as well as visitors to Benicia.  Lucca is owned and operated by Jan Lucca, a third generation Benician and his wife Carol.

Here at Lucca we offer Gastro-Pub Style cuisine.  We offer a full service bar,  with an extensive cocktail menu using seasonal fresh fruits and herbs.  We offer 20 beers on draft that we like to rotate from time to time to keep things exciting.  In addition, we offer 20 beers on tap, from domestic to craft.  For the wine lovers, we offer 47 wines in an array of varietals.  Of the 47, 36 come by the glass.  A majority of our wines are from right here in California.

Sonya Battersby – General Manager

Sonya comes to Lucca with 20 years of experience in the bar and restaurant business. Having started her journey in southeastern Wisconsin, she moved here to finish her college degree at Sacramento State with a major in criminal justice and a minor in business. Upon arriving in California she met Jan Lucca, then owner of O’Leary’s Irish Pub, and after a short time of bartending, she became manager and transitioned to the GM role at Lucca.  Sonya enjoys choosing the beers and wines on our menus.  Whether you are a beer or wine person you will always find a nice glass or bottle of wine or beer that accompanies our food dishes. Her vast knowledge in mixology is used to create our house cocktails, and recently she has decided to take the cocktails in a new direction and create seasonal ones as well.
