    Great to be back at A La Lucia! Jorge took great care of us, like he has always had. Our meal was great, the veal ravioli were outstanding!

    They do not include a side of spaghettis' or salads with their entrees. To order these other items drives the cost to close to $50 per person.

    I invited a guest from Seattle, WA to dine with me at A La Lucia's. He ordered a glass of red wine to go with his dinner. The waiter finally delivered his wine after we had finished dinner. My guest declined to accept the wine. I was a little embarrassed for my guest.

    Always fabulous. You feel welcomed like family to enjoy delicious food and wonderful service. And of course an Italian meal would not be complete without a great wine list-glass or bottle. Gracie!!!

    Came for dinner and started with a perfect and generous Aperol Spritz. The light and crisp calamari appetizer was delicious as was the rockfish entree. The fish practically melted in my mouth! Finished with a deeply rich-tasting chocolate mousse for dessert. The service was so friendly and lovely throughout. Will absolutely come back!
