Visiting from out of town and spotted this place on a walk - looked pretty cool. We were, ALL, very pleasantly surprised - especially without knowing anything about the restaurant. Thanks for a great evening!
A La Lucia is a great neighborhood Italian restaurant. Tasty delicious food, you can’t go wrong with this neighborhood gem! Cozy and reasonably priced. Good service!
Took my girlfriend here for valentine's day and received exceptional service over a three course dinner with breathtaking flavors and presentation. A must for a romantic date and special occasion!
even though it was Valentine's Day, it was still a great dinner. Restaurants are normally packed on this day. But we had a wonderful evening.
Love everything about this neighborhood gem. The staff is very friendly and the food is delicious!
Share a dinner with some family from out of town. Service was great. Seafood was even better. Never had a bad meal.
Great neighborhood spot within walking distance of the main drag in Old Town, Alexandria and the Braddock Road metro stop. Fantastic food and service, and great at accommodating food allergies and dietary restrictions. Great wine list, and great value for the highly reasonable prices. A must-try for anyone who's a fan of good Italian cooking and places that are off the beaten path.
Lovely dinner, as usual. Large group in room was loud, which was unusual in restaurant.
What a wonderful meal, and incredible portions for restaurant week. My GF and I left with lots of leftovers. The staff is really attentive, engaging, and it's obvious they enjoy working at this restaurant. We will definitely be returning.
Always great service and welcoming staff. We dine here regularly. Great value and unpretentious menu!
My only recommendation would be to reupholster the seats in their booths. Mine was lumpy and not all that supportive. Also, when I set my jacket next to what i thought was an interior wall, it was cold when I picked it up to leave.
Otherwise, my guests and I enjoyed the Restaurant week menu which included a huge selection of items that were on their regular menu. Very impressive.
Went for Alexandria Restaurant Week. Even though the restaurant was almost packed, we had a delightful meal and got great service. Really terrific food, all served hot and delicious. Even the vegetables were perfectly cooked (his spinach, my green beans). Had veal scallops that were tender and perfectly cooked. He had the veal chop and it was medium rare, just as he ordered it. Dessert were both very good--poached pear with glace and coffee mousse.
We will definitely come back.
We went for dinner during Alexandria Restaurant Week. The special menu was the most extensive of any of the restaurants we checked. Wide selection of appetizers and main dishes from which to choose. Reasonably priced wine selections by the glass too. Our first time there but won’t be the last.
Ravioli appetizers and lamb entree were delicious. Wine was excellent and very affordable.
