    the food was good but the nose was so loud couldn't hear each other 3 times couldn't find the waitress. I had to get the host to take care of my check. and he did it. never saw the waitress after that. All the waitresses appearances should better. lousy looking top and jeans. Lucia's is a nice table cloth restaurant with a 35 year reputation. Shape up your waitresses.

    Very disappointed we have been here many times and happy this time not so much. The first was the seating at a round table in the middle of the room. Reservation was made 2 days prior. The table was in the way for many of the servers so we asked to be moved. Next location great right up against the window great for people watching and out of the way. The drinks took a while but I understand with staffing things can be a bit slower if the meal was good it could have made up for that. Of the 4 of us 1 meal was great. The veal Marsala was horrible first they delivered chicken took it back and the Marsala sauce was watery as if someone poured a bottle of Marsala wine on top no consistency or thickness to the sauce. Veal Saltimboca tasted the same as the veal Marsala little to no taste. The best meal was the veal chop cooked to perfection and flavorful. It will be a while before I go back again.

    Consistent quality over the years, but prices have certainly escalated. They now charge for splitting salad plates ($5) which was never explained to us and which we simply would have done ourselves with the bread plates provided at the table. The Chicken Parmigiana ($22) is available with an eggplant upgrade for an extra $3.00 ($25 total). Another person in the party asked for the same thing and the waitress suggested that she'd bring us out one plate combined. We were like, okay! Tack on another $19 for that dish.....again, not explained. One last gripe......ordered Bulleit Bourbon Manhattan's at $13 each and they charged an extra $2 per drink because it was straight up! I have no problem paying for a good drink, just be upfront about the cost! I understand costs have escalated for everyone, but just be up front about it and don't nickel and dime patrons who have dined with you many times over the years! I'd still recommend this restaurant but just be aware of the pricing policies and be sure to ask questions of your server when they make alternate suggestions.

    The food and service have been exceptional, especially after the son took over the restaurant from his father. The staff couldn't have been nicer and patient with my 99 year old dad. I plan to bring my parents more often. They had a great time.
