    Good food and excellent service. We all enjoyed our food tremendously. It is a bit pricey so it is more of a special occasion restaurant than an ordinary date venue.

    The food is always perfect from appetizer to desserts. Every single course - perfect. The service is 5 star and it’s always consistent. This is why we go there for birthdays and special occasions. They never miss the mark. I wish it was a tad bit quieter but it’s a small place and always crowded. That won’t deter me. I need to go back again when it cools down and try the patio. Love Lucios!

    This was our first visit but not our last. We didn't take advantage of the BYOB feature ... first one we've found in Houston... and their wine list is carefully curated to appeal to almost every taste and price point without being untouchable. Food was outstanding. My husband is a clam lover but they are hard to get in Houston. The clams with chorizo really scratched that itch for him. I had the hanger steak with a carrot based chimichurri and the simply made Brussel sprouts. He had the scallops over butternut risotto. We shared the "bread pudding" which more like a custard, but very tasty nonetheless.

    Great menu, loved the crab cakes and sides. Irina the server is passionate about the food. The bring your own wine concept (with no corkage fees on Wednesdays and reasonable fees on other nights) makes Lucio's a great place to celebrate a special occasion.

    Outstanding. A real jewel. The food was exceptional from the calamari, apple salad and deep mushroom soup to the lamb, sea bass with risotto filled with lump crab meat. The deserts (we had three) were amazing. One was apple pie cooked for 3 hours with sauce and ice cream. Our Ukraine server Irina explained everything. A bit pricy but well worth it for a special occasion. The wine we brought "2008 Cakebread Dancing Bear and Rombauer chardonnay" were great and no corkage on Wednesday night.

    Our first time at Lucio's and we wondered why we hadn't gone there before. Food, service, and atmosphere are all 10 out of 10. A special shout-out to Irina for being so wonderful last night. Friendly and attentive, but never intrusive. We had the calamari and the crab cake for appetizers. They were divine! We followed them up with the mushroom soup for the wife and the goat cheese salad for myself. Let's just say that we licked our bowl and plate. For entrées, the missus had the scallops and I had the sea bass (one of the specials last night). Again, we cleaned our plates to a shine. We finished the night by sharing an order of bread pudding. Another 10! We didn't bring our own bottle last night (it seemed like everyone else did) so we ordered the Rose. It paired very well with our meals. We'll bring our own bottle next time. $10 corkage fee per bottle is very reasonable. We can't wait to be back and spend another wonderful evening at Lucio's.

    I brought my fiancé for his birthday because he loves the hangar steak. I had the duck for the first time and OMG it was THE MOST delicious duck breast. The clams never disappoint, we ask for the extra bread crisps to mop up the amazing broth. The only thing we had an issue with was the valet, there was no valet the last time we were there and this time there was even through we had a very early reservation at 6:45. We needed cash and they were able to add it on the bill. But now we know.
