Excellent food, ambience and service. Our table was located next to the piano player which made it a fraction loud but overall , highly recommended!

Food is amazing. Unique and well-prepared. Had nice servers and the back seating with heaters is much more quiet than the street side.
They know how to cook fish!

My husband and I enjoyed a delicious meal at Lucia's recently. Due to COVID we dined outside on the sidewalk. In light of the circumstance, we had a very pleasant experience. The food, as usual, was delicious and the service attentive.

Why go to the North End? Save your money, avoid the traffic and difficulty parking. There is better Italian food just around the corner. Nice music by Pat Gallagher and Gwenn Vivian!

Always outstanding! They did an awesome job with outdoor seating and making that available through the pandemic. I hope it they can keep the outdoor seating beyond 2020.

The lobster stack & steak was incredible. We ate out back with live dinner music and it was a real treat to get out and enjoy life again. We just can't find anything on Lucia's menu that we don't love.

Closest feel and ambience to an actual Italian restaurant of anyplace I have visited outside Italy. Excellent food, wine, and service. Outstanding music on patio in pandemically responsible setting.

We chose the back alley sitting and it was like being in Italy. They had local musicians playing and it set the mood for such a romantic date. We had a great time.

They don't have inside seating yet, but they have done an excellent job of outside seating behind the restaurant. They cleaned up a great patio area that makes outside eating a joy. There are also tables in the front, on the street, but I don't know how those are. The food is very good and reasonably priced.

First, I will say that the host and server were both amazing, the service is top notch.

I would certainly recommend, to anyone making plans to go, that if you want to sit outside, request sitting in back. Although the front was set up nicely, the traffic level was too loud.

As far as dinner, I was having a bit of menu envy, as the 3 others at my table made some smart, delicious looking choices. I ordered the heirloom tomato salad that was a special, and was very disappointed with it. It was obviously not made fresh that day, so the tomato skin was a bit tough, and the cucumbers were not a fresh white in color, but definitely been sitting in balsamic vinegar for entirely too long. The flavors were fine, and I ate it, but definitely wouldn't recommend for sure. I followed the salad with the butternut ravioli listed under the appetizer section. The ravioli was fabulous, but it was swimming, and i mean swimming in sauce. That much sauce was absolutely not necessary. Outside of those two dishes, every other dish that came to the table was amazing, and my friends are still talking about it.

I will certainly go again, as I have been there before, and the meal was amazing; I just made some bad choices this time around.

As always, the food was exceptional! We went with specific entres in mind and ended up trying 2 totally different dishes that were amazing! Love the summer menu.
The outdoor seating was great. Next time would probably request the back seating as the traffic was a little loud or make a later reservation so we can enjoy the ambiance of the lights.

We had a lovely meal last Friday night on the new back patio. It was decorated very nicely with matching outdoor rugs under each table. The waitress was excellent! I felt like the outdoor entertainment was a tiny bit too loud, and I thought it was odd that the entree, Steak Au poivre, did not come with any sauce on top of it; rather just the accompanying raviolis did. The salads were plentiful and the eggplant parm is the best in the entire state - not kidding- perfectly breaded and crunchy, not soggy and limp like some places.

Lucia's always provides a really nice night out, and they're still doing a wonderful job during Covid with their al fresco dining options. The set up outside is really nice, the food was still awesome, and the service prompt and friendly. I would definitely suggest this for a nice, safe night out.
