    Seated outside, which is on street, so passing vehicles do make a bit of noise. Food is very good, service is fair, seem ti have a lot of “newer” servers due to difficulty hiring. But overall, a nice meal.

    This was my second time coming to Lucia. I really enjoyed the first time. This time the calamari was excellent and my scampi was great. Unfortunately, my husband and son's fresh homemade pasta was overcooked, so not so sure we'll be back.

    I love the chicken Lucia and when outdoor seating is available, that’s really lovely. Service is okay and prices are a little higher than I would expect. But overall good food!

    Excellent food preparation; well seasoned, fresh, and nicely presented. I look forward to going back and trying other entrees. My only complaint was the coffee service. The espressos were served with a soup spoon for stirring. You can’t fit a soup spoon in the cup. Two in our party ordered cappuccino. They were served some sort of large coffee drink, but I would not call it cappuccino. I should have said something then, but neither of the people drinking the cappuccino said anything,so I kept quiet. Anyway, other than the coffee, everything was excellent. I would certainly recommend Lucia’s.

    Loved the extensive menu choices and our entrees arrived piping hot. Took over 1 1/4 hour for food to arrive at our table. We were told the inside restaurant was very busy. We dined outside and the venue was well protected from the street. Server was a bit spacey as we had to request things a few times although he was friendly.

    Although it was Prom Night in Winchester and the restaurant was packed with Prom Parents, we were seated at a lovely booth (had requested “quieter table” on Open Table reservation form). Despite the busy night, service was prompt and very friendly and efficient. Food was excellent! Another nice feature was that the owner/manager (?) went to each table to ask how patrons were and if satisfied with meals. We had not made the trek to Lucia’s for several years, but definitely will be back!

    We were promptly seated Dining room is nice looking. Our waitress was a bit sassier than I expected. We had to flag her down to get bread, and her reaction was "You want MORE bread?" when we hadn’t gotten our first portion yet. Service was otherwise prompt, although at our table and others, the servers had to ask "Who gets this dish?" something that I’d associate with a luncheonette, not a nice restaurant. Food was tasty, and portions were large. We all took home leftovers. The dining room is exceptionally loud, and would really benefit from some kind of soundproofing. All things considered, Lucia provides very good food in a disappointing environment.

    Excellent mid afternoon meal. Visited Griffith Photo museum. Had Scallopine Abbruzese. Chicken and veal cooked perfectly. Enough for another meal. Excellent martinis as well. Angela was our waitress and couldn’t have treated us better.

    The servers and hosts were incredibly welcoming and helpful. They were very consciencious that we had young children and got their food orders in and on the table quickly. Food was delicious as always. We ate outside and last season I recall a cover was over the outdoor seating area and while the frame was there, the cover was not so it was pretty hot in the sun. Consider adding the awning/cover back. All in all a wonderful experience.

    Always enjoy Lucia. It's reasonable, in a convenient and lovely spot in Winchester. The servings are generous and mostly of the red sauce American style Italian variety. Not absolutely gourmet, but the setting is comfortable, the staff is friendly, and it adds up to a great night out.

    This is a great place. The food was outstanding. My husband and I both got veal dishes and they were great. The portions were large and we are looking forward to the leftovers. The service was great too. The food wasn’t rushed. There was time between the appetizers and the main course to just relax. It was somewhat noisy but it was a Saturday night and every table was occupied. Looking forward to returning in the future.

    Always a great meal and service was terrific. Just one odd occurrence…. Everytime our waiter came with a dish he handed it to us instead of placing it down infront of us. Same with our coffees and dessert. And when he cleared he reached out waiting for us to hand him the dish. It was a bit awkward we have never had this happen anywhere. We still enjoyed our time out it made us chuckle . He may need better table techniques not sure many would put up with it

    It’s an interesting restaurant with the typical Italian selection. They struggled with pacing bringing the apps, salad and entrees within 2 minutes of each other.
