Very very noisy and very hard to find. I walked around Penn Plaza for a 1/2 hour before I found the restaurant. Then the meal was rushed. But the food was very good.
Way too loud if you’re looking to have dinner conversation. Because it gets too crowded, service is not the best.
Have eaten here a few times before.
Friendly staff --- good food choices --- always accommodating for my nut allergy.
Only drawback is closeness of tables and noise level.
Would definitely go back and would recommend.
This is a very good restaurant re food, service, and price point. We have lived in Manhattan for 30 years but have never needed to eat close to Penn Station to catch a train before. But we were in that situation and I started looking for a restaurant very close to Penn Station. Lugo Cucina jumped out immediately based on proximity to the station and the hundreds of excellent reviews on the food and service. Well all those reviewers were correct. I order salmon with regularity when we eat out and, without question, my salmon at Lugo Cucina was superb--as well as the vegetables. Can't wait to have it again. Wine selection is limited and a tad pricey for the wines; however, the wine we chose was good and just about 10 dollars over what I would have considered reasonable. Service was excellent--extremely efficient and friendly. We will be back--even if we don't need to catch a train.
Lunch for two at the Bar was great! Juliana the bartender made several suggestion's on the menu and great wine advice (by the glass) The veal parm was great.
the apps were also very good.
Great find in One Penn Plaza; therefore very convenient for dinner before heading home, pre-theatre, post-work etc. BUT truly great food - not overly fancy, simple ingredients plated thoughtfully and real vfm! Dishes that we ordered (and all were good) included Octopus w fingerling potatoes, Shrimp Spiedini (on a skewer basically), Aragula salad (very fresh) and the Burrata salad - with cocktails and wine that were not OTT price-wise! Great service too!
Always great food and a great place for a drink as well.
When we got there (it was early for dinner) it was quiet and relaxing. We had wine and ordered - wonderful branzino, grilled octopus & spaghetti carbonara - and as we waited for our food the restaurant filled up! Family groups, birthday party groups, not to mention many guys in the bar waiting to go to a NY Rangers game - all these folks contributed greatly to the noise factor: it became quite loud. We had a hard time hearing each other after a while. The FOOD was yummy...and we will surely go back!
Hosted a lunch for clients here. Found it to be a great restaurant with good wine and a good food selection. I will definitely be coming here again.
Great lunch at the bar Juliana made very good suggestion's on several menu items
I have been to Lugo many times as I used to work in the building in which it is located. It is one of the few nice restaurants in the Penn Station/Madison Square Garden area. While I think it is pricey for what it has to offer, the food and the service are always excellent. So if you are in need of a restaurant in this locale I recommend Lugo if you don’t mind paying the price.
It was late, so we shared a caprese salad, calamari & orecchiette pasta dish. Everything was delicious & the portions were substantial! Service was outstanding!
Pre-MSG meal. Was quick and delicious.
Vanessa was an OUTSTANDING waitress! She, along with the food, made it a very memorable experience for my customers and I.
Amazing experience! Great food, great service, great ambience.
