Lucia was warm and welcoming and the food was fantastic. Much care was taking with screening and distancing. Felt very safe!

Will be back to the patio as soon as we are allowed!

Meal and ambience on the patio was top notch. The outdoor fire pits, decor and blankets were a great touch during these COVID times.
Fantastic food - especially the Brussels sprouts!

Service was great; waitress was attentive and friendly. We dined on the outdoor patio; very warm and cozy and didn’t feel like we were outside, as they had a couple fire pits. It felt like being in a ski chalet - good vibes.

The food was just ok; we had the bruschetta and soup to start (meh), the venison gnocchi for myself and my husband the pork chop. Both dishes were mediocre in the flavour department. Would I return? Maybe, to try a few more dishes. Also, would be nice if they could put some bread on the table while you’re waiting for your apps and mains.

We were celebrating an anniversary, the staff couldn’t care less. They did absolutely nothing to make our day special...We were given the worst table on the patio even tho we were the 2nd guests to arrive. We got a super drafty cold table far from the fire pits. Even tho there where empty tables available, we were treated horribly for requesting a better table, the staff are unfortunately shallow, uncaring jerks..such a shame being that the food & ambience were great...we live in the neighbourhood & wish the staff cared more to keep the folks living near by as regulars...all I can say is if you are not willing to paying the staff off for a good table be prepared to suffer... sooooo disappointing!!!!

This neighbourhood gem delivered on all fronts during our visit on a Saturday night. The winterized patio satisfies Covid-related health and safety requirements without compromising the vibe with wood panelled walls adorned with chalet inspired decorative elements (moose head and snowshoes anyone?), cozy blankets at each table, and wood burning fire pits and oven. Service was attentive and unpretentious, as was the crowd. Menu was inventive with elevated choices, a departure from standard Italian fare and the portions were just right. I'd go back again....actually curious to experience it on an idyllic, not so cold snowy night. The atmosphere and food really lend themselves to that experience.

Excellent experience. Great food great service and perfect patio. We were seated directly below the speaker so it made it louder then I would have liked, but otherwise it was fantastic. Will definitely be going back.

We first tried Lucia pre-2020 and forgot about it. Went back this past summer and have been going back every few weeks since. They have amazing food and service. Mike and team have done a great job of creating an atmosphere and experience that makes you all but forget for a couple of hours what’s ‘going on’ currently. It’s a nice reprieve that we have come to look forward to. We have never been disappointed; they are very consistent all around which is rare in my view.

Lucia is our new favourite restaurant in Toronto. We have been here twice already, each time there was a different and amazing menu. The food is extremely fresh and high quality, with delicious and unique flavours. We will be coming back again soon!

Lucia is a great little restaurant with a nice patio. It is heated and slightly enclosed so it should be good for most weather conditions. The staff were great and the food was good as well. The brussel sprouts are absolutely fantastic, a highlight dish! The gnocchi was very nice as well. I had the roasted rooster and found it to be lacking in flavor and texture. Otherwise this is an great place for a date. The patio is a little loud, but it's not awful.

These two guys never disappoint!!
We haven’t been out for some time, Mike and Fabio welcomes us like family and made us feel safe.
Our drinks, food and service were perfect.
The patio was warm, inviting and safely spaced.
I had my go to Kale salad and the Cappelletti. The Pasta was outstanding. We were celebrating our anniversary and they made it all the more special.
