Love the bar scene so friendly. Food was great especially the white bean salad that was served with my Salmon. Best Mother's day shared with my daughter.

We took my father to Lucia's for his 94th birthday. He absolutely loved his chicken marsala and the cannoli that followed. The other chicken dishes were also excellent (mine had fried artichokes in it - yum!). The atmosphere was very lively on a Saturday night. I know we'll be taking dad there again.

Our Easter dinner was excellent. I brought my family with me for the first time and they thoroughly enjoyed their appetizers and dinner.

Your hostess that seated us is so pleasant and and sat us immediately upon arrival at the table we requested.

Ana was our waitress and she was very observant.

Lucia Ristorante is one of our favorites. The food is so good no matter what you choose. We had 7 people, plus a baby, and it was terrific; everyone loved their meals and the service couldn't have been better.

Drinks were very expensive. 4 drinks $68.00? We enjoyed the dinner and the dining room. The waitor was great and very friendly. It was a page out of time where the staff really cared.

We thoroughly enjoy eating at Lucia’s and go there often. Some of the meals are expensive but it’s worth it because they’re delicious. We’ve brought many of our friends with us too.

We’ve even made reservations for April 21st for Easter Sunday.

The hostess was the best part of the restaurant. Our waiter seemed surprised that he was waiting on our table and was inattentive. When we asked to have Tiramisu for dessert on a Friday night, they said they were out. Seemed like poor planning for an Italian restaurant on a Friday night.

The service we received from the wait staff was atypically slower than usual. The meals weren’t as good as they’ve been other times we’ve eaten there. It was crowded because it was valentine’s weekend but that is unacceptable since the meals were pricey.
