The story of food is the story of friendship. When you combine Irish conviviality with the irrepressible Italian nature, it’s always going to be a good thing. Chefs Ross Lewis and Luciano Tona have been friends through Michelin starred food, and tall tales, for many years. At Osteria Lucio they unite their love of Irish and Italian food with the very best of produce, from both countries.

    Staff were very attentive, and good. We had a special birthday girl at the table and this was acknowledged at the outset and a fuss made. Food was gorgeous, menu selection could be improved upon.

    Food was VERY good. BUT we were 30 mins waiting for a drink. NOT good. Poor response from the management (possibly not allowed to offer a courtesy gesture for poor service?). Tables on top of each other (unlike our last visit). The restaurant is overpriced by 20%.

    Loved this restaurant last time we were there in Nov. Both wine and foods were outstanding. So repeated this time without a hesitation, however, I had to say we were a bit disappointed this time. The choice of foods were very limited and the main I ordered (fish) was quite salty. I had to drink so much water in the middle of the night. We we’re assuming the chef might have been changed since then, or we were just unlucky this time.

    Pumpkin ravioli was mouthwatering. Rhubarb desert was also delicious. Lively atmosphere. Welcoming and efficient staff. Two of us had dinner before a show in Bord Gáis Theatre. My previous meal here was with a large group and that was also a very positive dining experience.

    Business lunch - we shared cured meats and parmigiano to start - enjoyable if slightly overpriced, given need to add bread. I had the Pescado del Giorno (cod) which was excellent, my guest had the Parpadelle al Ragu which was also excellent. Great atmosphere as always. Service too slow unfortunately, took away from the experience.

    I wanted to have two starters ( one as my main course) but they refused and insisted that I have a main course. I would have left except I was going to the theatre and didn’t have a lot of time. A nearby couple wanted a different table and were refused. The service was inflexible for no apparent reason. I ended up having a main course only so no difference in cost. The food was good so it’s a shame they are not more customer friendly.

    We were so so excited to visit this restaurant after reading good things but unfortunately left disappointed. The flavours did not live up to the price point, we left underwhelmed. My partner found the white lasagne incredibly oily and was struggling to eat it. Lovely glass of wine. Very nice interior. Polite staff.
