Engagement Dinner at LuciaI have been dining at Lucia for years. I haven't been in a couple years as I had moved out of the area. I made reservations for a girlfriend's engagement dinner. Service was good and the food was excellent Italian fare as usual. I had the braised short ribs with potato gnocchi in a red wine reduction, yum! Their cannelloni is notably the best dish on their menu. Our server even offered us two desserts on the house for our celebration. Thank you Lucia!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOn y mange TRÈS bienHum-Hum-Hum !!!
Quel délice. Tous les plats étaient remarquables en accord de saveurs. C'était excellent !5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMLucia'sLucia's is dependable but it is time they reviewed their menu and make some changes as they need new items to keep customers returning.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Lucia!!Great service and delicious food can't beat that combo!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMVisitI was visiting family in Kirkland, wa and twice I was taken to this restaurant and Wow! What a diamond of a place!!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMNever DisappointsI can always count on receiving great service, drink and food at Lucia, a place we wouldn't have discovered without a Groupon. From the savory, ice cold dirty martini to the last bite of pasta carbonara, the meals are great. We shared an order of plump, flavorful crab cakes to start, followed by the Caesar salad and pasta. Fresh-baked focaccia requires self control because its so good. Nice wine selection, too. We've not tried dessert yet, but every meal at Lucia has been really, really good.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat little gemGreat food. FYI the appetizers are large so good idea to split. They do a great job given it looks onto a mall parking lot.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great meal. The foodWe had a great meal. The food was good, the menu choices are varied and interesting and the wine we ordered was delicious and reasonably priced. The service was excellent but they 'hovered' a little too much making us feel rushed even though I don't think that was their intention. We would go back!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond time visiting. We beatSecond time visiting. We beat the crowds at 430 but stayed until 7 and it was packed. They are continuing "restaurant week" even though it is officially over. They offer 3 amazing courses for $28. They also have an excellent happy hour selection which made it hard to choose. We all enjoyed everything immensely! Pear Gorgonzola baguette was yummy! Even the spinach pear salad. I'll you decide. We also had Sicilian meatballs, salmon and gnocchi. Good luck!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe only thing was that ourThe only thing was that our table was against a wall and we felt cramped. Would have likes a different table but enjoyed everything else!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThank you Seattle Restaurant Week!!Went to Lucia during Restaurant week! Ive lived in Kirkland for 2 years, and drive by Lucia at least 4 times a week due to the nearby grocery store, but never went in. Their special menu was really diverse and creative. My meal was wonderful, server was knowledgeable and the restaurant was really fun atmosphere.
We went on a Thursday night that wasn't particularly busy, but seems like it would be a great place to meet for HH or eat on the weekends.
So glad we chose Lucia4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLucia's: A great neighborhood findMy girlfriend and I went Lucia's for the first time last evening as it was participating in Seattle Restaurant Week special. So, it was booked up which we were not sure is typical of most Wednesday nights. We sat in the upstair's loft looking down on the entrance area and somewhat removed from the crowds.
The food was innovative and tasted delicious. We both had the pear and Gorgonzola crostinis followed by the wild salmon that came with gnocchi and asparagus. For dessert my friend had the dolce with salted carmel sauce and I had the warm chocolate soufflé as they were already out of the chocolate decadence cake by 7:30 pm, but it was an amazing substitution that I would have again. The portions were good size and we did not leave hungry.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMSlight service glitch causedSlight service glitch caused the entrees to arrive almost immediately after the appetizers. But the waiter was appropriately apologetic and the service was otherwise very good. We found it a bit loud, but not unbearably so. Vibe was much more "hip night spot" than "romantic special occasion."4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat local restaurant, friendlyGreat local restaurant, friendly staff, and good food!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA fun place with excellentA fun place with excellent food and friendly staff.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love this place and goWe love this place and go every week.

The restaurant is noisy...hard to converse. We say,'What?' a lot. If they could fix the noise issue we would dine there much more often.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been to Lucia's onWe have been to Lucia's on numerous occasions.
