This place is a Gem. Inventive Italian food and beverages. Everything we ordered was amazing.
Never had soggy fries like I did here. We sent it back to the kitchen and it was soggy the second time around as well. Maybe the oil is not hot enough? The farmers daughter pizza was good, but overall food is overpriced.
I WISH I COULD GO EVERYDAY THE NORMA IS THE BEST PIZZA I'VE EVER TRIED
We always have a good meal at Lucia's. Last night we had the "Christmas Pie" special--calzone dough wrapped around a filling of bacalao, cheese, tomatoes and olives. It was delicious. We tried the meatballs for the first time and liked that they were crispy on the outside and served with a side of tomato dipping sauce--not the typical Italian style meatballs. Also had the brussels sprouts, which were reliably yummy. We enjoyed our cocktails-- an Americano and an Old Fashioned, expertly made. Love the ambience of Lucia's and the warm greeting that we always receive.
Very nice little place! Clean, modern and welcoming.
They asked for vaccination proof - which I really appreciated - and the service felt safe and professional. I have Celiac and must eat gluten-free; they were accommodating and the food was excellent!
We had an excellent dinner here on a Saturday night. Our service was great - fast and attentive without being intrusive. The food was also excellent and everyone in our group, ages 10-45, raved about it afterwards. I highly recommend Lucia's!
Lucia’s is a staple for us. We love their gluten free pizzas and pastas. The best in the Bay Area as far as we know. We started with the burrata with some gluten free bread that was hot from the oven. Then a gluten free pizza and a gluten free calzone (special of the day). We really enjoyed everything. Their bottles of Prosecco are reasonably priced. Always a great night out.
Great pizza and pasta. Fantastic service too. We’ll be back.
Pizza is the best in Berkeley. Born and raised in Italy writing here. Spudsy Pancetta is great!
Enjoyed all. Food, drinks, service etc
Wonderful ambiance, service,& food. We eagerly will return.
Lucia, the owner, was very accommodating. Best cannoli I have ever eaten.
I have celiac and am gluten free. The GF pizza was INCREDIBLE! I haven't had pizza that good since before I was GF and in Italy. We also got the GF gnocchi with bolognese, also excellent. Great cocktails, excellent service. We plan to come again every time we're in town!
Delicious meal and excellent service! The owners really pay attention to all aspects of the meal and make you feel right at home.
The pizza and calzones are remarkably good. Clearly the dough is their secret that makes them so good. Our calzone — the Napolitano - was really excellent but needed a bit more meat and less ricotta.
As an appetizer we had the calamari were extremely anemic — very small, skinny and just not to par for a true Italian restaurant. I know it’s possible to get better in the Bay Area and I would be willing to pay $1-2 more for a great calamari.
Beware that with some wines they are “organic” which is all well and good but not as flavourful. This point is not on the menu and the hosts are supposed to advise.
Overall a good restaurant for the neighborhood and the staff are extremely friendly and warm.
Table for 9 beautifully appointed with glass vases of 1 pink flower for birthday celebration. Pizzas and pastas are delicious & service was perfect- not Hovering but always around. Stored and served the ice cream cake we brought - will be back here. It’s a gem !!
Hadn’t been before. Made the mistake of sitting outside. Noisy and while visiting friends from out of town, interrupted frequently by people begging. Salad was great, but everything else was meh.
Blows my mind every time and I am never not shocked. Even the vegetarians were awed. Grazie mille ! PS caponata is a must
Still the best pizza in town! They have vegan options and gluten free.
Lucia's is a hidden gem on Shattuck. The starters & salads were a little unremarkable but the pasta!!! and the pizza!!! So incredible!!!! Cozy atmosphere and friendly service. We will definitely come back.
WOW - a truly Italian experience while being Gluten Free! Usually GF dough is lacklustre, bland and blah... not at Lucia's. Tasty, chewy delicious - we started with the fried Tries de Montanarine, and followed with a Quattro Formaggi all with GF dough. Can't wait to go back!!!
I tried different pizza places on the East coast where I live and I found this in SF. Best Italian pizza I had in US so far !
With reservations everything was a breeze. Checked in when we got there and was seated promptly after even with how busy they were. Service and food were great! Definitely want to go back and try all their pizza options.
Its hands down the best gluten-free pizza crust ive had in 13 years as a celiac. By far.
Went to visit my son. We sat outdoors, by choice. Enjoyed seeing the people pass by as we ate. The food was great. I ordered a calzone, it did not look like I expected or like any I had seen before, but it was still really good. It was probably for two, but I ate it myself.
We absolutely LOVE Lucia's. There's no Italian restaurant like them with all the gluten free and vegan options, we are comfortable bringing friends with limited diets. The owners are gracious, the chef is excellent. The food is the best. Yay for those calamari fritters!!
Food was delicious. However, the appetizers were a little on the smaller side. The pizza was excellent and will definitely go back to get another one. They have decent wine at a reasonable price given how much wine is costing these days in restaurants.
But I can’t say enough about the service. The hostess/waitress was extremely helpful and very friendly. The waitstaff overall were very efficient and it made our evening go smoothly.
Great experience. Service was excellent and friendly. The pizza was the best ever! Would highly recommend Lucia’s.
Finally, a place for a gluten-free, cow dairy free Italian to indulge! Went here on a date with my partner and it was fabulous. Love the service and the quality of the food. So good! Definitely recommend it!
Very friendly staff. The food was yummy. Nice experience.
Pizza is incredible
Great food and service. Interior design is post industrial chic, which didn’t do much for me. Menu is quite limited, pizza, pasta and a few salads and appetizers, but everything we had was delicious and fairly quick to arrive. Overall great experience!
Everything was wonderful. Brandon was the best server ever. We had a beautiful dinner and the food was delicious. The birthday girl can’t eat gluten so going to a restaurant where there are so many GF options is a real treat. The wallpaper in the bathroom is super fun too.
Lucias is our new favorite restaurant in Berkeley. Food is outstanding and it is a really comfortable place to eat, from the friendly staff, cartoons in the bathroom, and cozy furniture.
Amazing gem of a place! Hands down the BEST gluten free pizza we have ever had. They have perfected the recipe so the texture and taste of the crust is perfect. We look forward to going back and sharing with family and friends.
Second time here and a highly recommend. It’s wise to reserve ahead of time as it gets busy quickly. Some of the best Neopolitan pizza I’ve had in this area, chewy crust. Try the Cosacca.
Best pizza ever with the best service. Such great food all the way around
Everything from the moment we arrived was lovely. The staff, the ambiance, the food, the food, the food. Like I was back in Italy eating my favorite pizza 🤍 we will be back
