February 23 my husband, our best man , his wife and I went to this restaurant for dinner! My husband and I had traveled from Utica NY and I happened to pick this restaurant based on open table reviews. Everything on the menu seemed amazing! I was so excited to try the food. We started off with calamari, which was phenomenal. It had a lot of garlic flavor, I love spicy so I wish it had more cherry peppers but I’m sure I could have asked for that! I then opted for a ceaser salad which was great! And the waitress was very accommodating when I asked her for balsamic to put on my salad because I like both dressings! Oh then we get to the main course, I had ordered the tomahawk, my husband got the filet, my friends wife got the chicken francaise and our best man, due to having a tooth procedure the day prior had to get the burger with no bun and just cheese. I must say that the food was exceptionally good! The service was even better, I’m sad I forgot the waitresses name because she really does deserve praise she was phenomenal and the two bussers we had were so attentive and everything was promptly cleared and waters were always full! I can’t wait to have to head out that way again because from now on this will be my new go to spot for dinners out in buffalo. Beautiful lake view! Bravo to you guys. Great establishment you have running.

We had a table for 7 on Valentines weekend. Everyone was moving to get food out. We were not rushed at all even though they probably wanted the table. They did have extra help to pack up the food and clear the tables. We got appetizers, salads, main courses and desserts. Everyone was pleased with their choices. I don't think you need to charge for bread, if you have to add more to the food cost. The rose at the end was a nice touch.

A wonderful evening for a Valentines celebration. Service was above and beyond! Only food critique I have was part of my appetizer was a little cool inside still. Flavor was still excellent though! Limited menu it being a holiday but I enjoy the options and look forward to coming back for another special evening.

The food at Lucia's is always delicious, and this trip did not disappoint. We started with an appetizer, then had soup or salad, our entrees and finally coffee and dessert. All of it was delicious! Best of all, we casually mentioned we were celebrating my husband and my mother in law's birthdays (they share a birthday), and our waitress came back with their dessert topped with two candles! It was such a sweet surprise and totally unexpected. Our waitress was phenomenal - super responsive, sweet and quick! The atmosphere is always wonderful too - I love being able to look out on the lake during dinner. Best of all (and this is a big one for me), the bathrooms were clean, modern and well stocked. Kudos all around!

My wife & I came to celebrate my birthday. We’d heard great things about Lucia’s from Open Table reviews, as well as from friends recommendations. We’re happy to say Lucia’s lived up to the hype! The owner even visited our table & genuinely wanted to ensure we were having a fine time. Our only regret is that we hadn’t visited sooner. We’ll certainly be back!

I have tried numerous times but the restaurant was always filled to capacity. Finally made reservations. What a wonderful experience and beautiful restaurant. Our waitress and busboy were very professional, attentive and engaging. The food was exceptional. I had a dated gift certificate which was accepted at full value which is very classy unlike Salvatore's. This is a keeper if I only remember to make a reservation.
