Lucio’s seems to be reliably good each time we go which is great. So many times the hype of a restaurant carries it away and you end up disappointed.
They have a pretty limited menu, but really all dishes are well chosen and very good. I had the salad of greens with goat cheese and apple and my partner had a crab cake. Well presented and delicious. For mains, he chose the scallops on risotto and I had the seared tuna. Both cooked perfectly in nice portions. We did indulge in Creme brûlée for dessert which I would suggest is a must. It was creamy, perfectly textured, slightly warmed with a beautiful crackle on top. A great way to end the meal. Definitely will be back and though they now have a liquor license you can still bring your own for a corkage fee. A great meal and they got us out the door to see our show downtown in plenty of time.

I was extremely disappointed in the service that night. It seems like the hardest worker was the water attendant. Our waiter would take so long to return to our table and the place was not busy at all. We finally had to get up from our table to move to the register to pay for our dinner. My dinner was overcooked. I've been here before and I was taken back on how much this place has gone down hill.

We were absolutely delighted to find this little gem of a restaurant through a Travelzoo offer that landed in my inbox. So we left the ease of a no-traffic, suburban restaurant and headed to the big city! Lucio's was wonderful! The wait staff was attentive and unobtrusive, knowledgeable and full of great recommendations. Our party of four ordered the crab cakes, the beef carpaccio, and the heirloom tomato and burratta salad for appetizers. All were outstanding! We were all pleased with out entree choices, too. The lamb was the standout though, among that and the scallops and the filet. Our desert choices were the bread pudding and the creme brulee. It would be a tough call to choose which was better! We sat outside on a beautiful evening and enjoyed wine and beer we had brought with us. The excellent food and the charm of Lucio's made for a truly memorable evening. We will return!

Great food and service. I'm glad I finally got a chance to try this place out. It's such a cute & quaint kind of place - great for a date night or dinner with a group of friends. The menu is small; but what they do with what they offer is phenomenal. Biggest scallops I've ever seen, and cooked perfectly. The pictures don't do it justice. They are huge. Everything tasted delicious and the service was so friendly and accommodating. You can also BYOB or get a bottle from their reasonably priced wine list, you can't ask for anything more.

Wow! What a great find. The outside is very non assuming and the surprise starts when you walk in the door. Lucio's provides a really nice intimate setting for a romantic or family dinner. It's easy to talk and hear as the noise level is quite reasonable. I had the duck breast entree and the portion size was perfect as was the preparation. My dining companions has the scallops and they were also done to perfection, not overcooked. The best part is they encourage a BYOB where for an $8 corkage you can bring your favorite wine. I loved the entire experience.

It is always a pleasure to dine at Lucio's BYOB . The restaurant has a comfortable yet upscale ambiance, focusing on offering a menu which incorporates the best local ingredients available each season. Lucio's offers a beautiful outdoor patio. The service is relaxed and attentive (Melvin is a long-time server at Lucio's and always a pleasure to see again.) Whether you're seeking s a traditional several course meal, a tasting menu or simply a coffee (I recommend the French Press) and dessert, you wont regret coming to Lucio's.

Food (scallops) and salad were really good. The BYOB brought us here, although they kind of make up for it with $8 corkage and rather pricey entrees. All in all, would recommend it. Nice outdoor patio as well as nice inside dining.

The menu selection is somewhat limited but they do a very nice job. The food is straightforward and it's a great place because of the corkeage. We enjoyed the prix fix Valentine's dinner squash soup beef carpaccio lamb chop. Seabsss. The salad was a bit boring but topped off with a delicious bread pudding and creme brûlée.

We have been to Lucio's several times and went back for Valentine's Day. They had a prix fixe meal but did not put on the website in advance what it was, so we took a chance. The food was good but not what we would have normally picked from the menu. The service was good but with a number of missteps that you would not expect from here (red wine served in a white wine glass, corkage fee added to bill when it was included in the prix fixe charge). Hopefully this was just a slightly off night. Everything was still good but not a Lucio's usual high standards.

The waiter was fantastic. There were 4 of us and 4 bottles of wine, but he didn’t rush us. It was a Friday night and fairly busy, but he let us take our time and enjoy our night.

The special was a fish dish (fluke) that was prepared very healthily, which is a big must for my husband. In addition to being healthy, it apparently tasted amazing!

The only negative was that I ordered the hangar steak. The menu described it and it sounded fantastic, but when it got to me, all I could smell was onions, lots and lots of onions. Fine if you like onions, but I personally hate them, especially sautéed onions when the smell just overwhelms everything else. The waiter handled it beautifully. I was able to scrape them off and push them far enough away that the smell wasn’t so overpowering. My real complaint was why the menu wouldn’t specify it came smothered in onions. The waiter said he would make sure the chef knew and that he would “warn” any future customers of the onions.

All in all a great experience and we will definitely be back.

Great for a nice meal pre-theater on a weeknight. Attentive service, solid menu and wine list. Burrata/tomato salad was lovely - the kitchen divided it for us. We both had the duck breast - hearty serving and delicious. Would have liked more of the yummy puree alongside.
Thanks and see you soon.
