The service was great. The flavor of the food was good as well. I ordered the wild mushroom omelet but it was all egg, very little onion, mushroom or goat cheese, quite disappointing for $14. Can’t say I will return for brunch.

Very good food. I enjoyed the salad with beets and the checci pasta with burrata was excellent and not too rich.

The four of us grabbed a reservation on a Wednesday evening, and were seated right away. We had our choice of areas, and chose the table with a combo of bench/pillows and chairs. Service was just right--server knew the menu well, but was not overpowering. Good bar selection, and vegetarian options. We had two salads, which were fresh and nicely seasoned. One of us had the veggie lasagna, which came in a deep baked dish and was very tasty--with plenty left over for lunch the following day. Lots of options for pasta or pizza with both traditional and creative sauces.

The cook helped bring out our food, so we had a chance to talk with her about the unique options and listen to her recommendations.

Overall, we were surprised by the quality of the food and ambiance. We will definitely return.

Food was excellent. Service was a bit rough after we asked to be seated at a table away from entrance. I think the staff struggled with who would handle our table and so it took over 30 minutes to get a bottle of wine and get things started. After that, food was stellar and we would recommend to friends.

The space is lovely and the addition of the holiday lights increased the charm and coziness of the restaurant. Overall the food was delicious, though the kitchen can work better on timing as we got our meals almost immediately after receiving our appetizer. The server was kind and just a bit too attentive as it felt she was always hovering and engaging with us rather than allowing us to eat without interruption.

Still, it’s a great space with great food. Just be sure to eat fast as they don’t seem to like people lingering.

Lucia's was a perfect venue for dinner before going to a concert with my young granddaughter. They offered non gluten & dairy options for me and an affordable kids menu which included Shirley Temples - a real hit. One concern is the acoustics- it is very difficult to have any conversation when the room is full.

They seemed short staffed. I have been before and have received almost fine dining service. We waited a long time for our food to come out and never had a server come check on us. We wanted desert but didn’t want to wait another hour. Had to flag someone down to get our bill.

I was impressed with all aspects of dining here EXCEPT that I was with a big group. We weren't informed until after we ate that we couldn't seperate our bill into groups, but instead had to evenly divide the check. The problem was that some of us had a +1 & some didn't. Some drank & some didn't. So individuals still paid over $60 for just an entree!

Came here on a Tinder date. Was given a choice between a few locations and chose this one for the wine. Ambiance and wine was incredible. Perfect setting for a date. The manager and bartender came out and said hello, offered wine pairings and tastings, and shared a few laughs. Definitely helped that my date was a regular, but the intimacy combined with the local feel was a great combination. Upscale ambiance with a casual feel is versatile. Menu is limited which I appreciate because the items that are present were authentic and appropriate. FOOD WAS THE BOMB. Vegan, Gluten-free, vegetarian, and other options. Local hot spot so make sure you make a reservation on Friday.

Lucia is mediocre at best. I booked the reservation based on reading reviews and the menu for my husband's birthday. We were looking forward to some quality Italian comfort food and were very disappointed. The tomatoes on the bruschetta had been refrigerated. The bread was textureless even though it was toasted. The truffle oil and proscuito pasta was nothing special and one could not discern a hint of truffle. And the parm did not appear or taste like it was fresh. I was embarrassed to have taken my husband to such a cruddy meal for his birthday.

Such a lovely experience! We took our nanny out to celebrate her last day with us. Our 5 and 7 year old daughters were with us. It's a big place so you're not squeezed right next to other tables and you can hear each other speak. I loved the menu selection...it was hard to choose one thing. They also have specials; which is something that will keep me coming back. Menu size was just right. Kids menu had something for everyone and good portions for my older daughter. Our server Bret really made our night special. We will be coming back as much as we can! The ambiance and prices allow for a casual dinner or a special occasion.

My partner and I had a great evening at Lucia. We bought a Travelzoo deal, which is a great way to try out new restaurants, so the value was amazing. Comforting, delicious Italian food and lovely ambiance! Our server, Nathan was his name, I believe, was new, and has not yet hit his stride but was very sweet. We were also attended to warmly by a manager, James, who was extremely delightful! We will definitely visit Lucia again!

We were here for brunch, and it was pretty quiet which meant we could get seated right away. The restaurant was tastefully decorated, and our food arrived pretty soon. We ordered MonteCristo sandwich, Wild Mushroom Omelette and Cinnamon Roll. The portions were of normal size (except the Cinnamon Roll, you get 2 for $7!), but the price point was a bit lower than the normal breakfast joint. My MonteCristo sandwich, however, was a bit underwhelming in texture and taste. Overall, the experience was adequate.

The staff at Lucia truly welcomed my guest and I. They went above and beyond to be sure that we picked the right meal with several recommendations. I truly appreciate the service and excellent food. I highly recommend the Avocado Benedict (thanks to the lovely hostess) and bottomless mimosas! I'll definitely be back. We felt so welcomed.
