Topping the list is LUCA. Located at 436 W. James St., Suite 101 in Chestnut Hill, the Italian spot, which offers pizza and more, is the highest rated pizzeria in Lancaster, boasting four stars out of 202 reviews on Yelp.

LUCA specializes in wood-burning Neapolitan pizza, handmade pastas, small plates of bruschetta or olives, vegetables and salads, and large plates of fish, chicken and lamb.
