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.

    Food portions were very small. I ordered a cheese plate for dessert. I asked for crackers to accompany the cheese. They did not have any and gave two small bits of bread instead. Do not go to this restaurant hungry.

    Great food and really friendly service but the service was very fast with main courses coming out immediately after starters were taken away. Main course plates were cleared while one of our party was still eating. Will definitely return and just signal a slower service is required.

    We went for a birthday dinner to celebrate my wife’s birthday, their were four of us dining and all had a wonderful time. It’s a very relaxing restaurant in large part because the staff are both utterly professional and warm and welcoming . The food is very good and was well presented and served in a timely fashion. The interior is a nice mix of rustic and modern and is both comfortable and interesting. I would highly recommend this restaurant and I look forward to returning.

    From the moment we walked in we were greeted by warm and friendly staff that were very attentive during the whole meal. Nice music and good atmosphere. The food was absolutely amazing and the wine tied it all together. The dessert was a perfect finish to a great evening. Would highly recommend and will definitely be going back.

    Were under pressure due to late arrival and on a timeline to go a show in the Bord Gais Theatre. Waitress Pauline and the team with her somehow managed to turn what might have been a rushed visit into both a relaxed and excellent three course dining experience and still have time to make our show. The shoulder of pork, ordered on Pauline's recommendation, was absolutely delicious and the homemade Tiramisu finished the meal superbly. Well done all in Osteria Lucio

    Really excellent dinner last night! Attentive but unrushed service, delicious food and very comfortable surrounds. We were in the outdoor seating section but it’s actually completely enclosed so no need for extra layers! Would highly recommend for a relaxed evening!

    While the food, ambience and service was excellent the price for a bottle of wine is way off the mark. At almost €50.00 for the cheapest bottle of red wine is too dear and it will be quite some time before we return with prices at that level. Pity as it/was one of our favorite restaurants. Re recommendation below I cant recommend as per above.

    World class experience, food and service. The freshly sliced prosciutto and fresh melon kick off a delightful start to a culinary masterpiece. The Rigatoni Amatriciana is perfectly cooked and the fresh ingredientss literally melt in your mouth. A perfect pairing is next with the Osso Buco and saffroon Risotto together with the Brunello di Montalcino, which is not to be missed. Finish off the evening with another glass from the bottle of the Brjnello with the Tiramisu - mmmm!

    We were 2 of us and our table was at the very end near the kitchen, partly in the passage to the kitchen and toilets. Therefore for the one with all the waitress passing behind it wasn’t very nice. We also found the ambiance quite noisy. We will try again with another table and with friends, not just the 2 of us

    If you are a table for two, I recommend you ask to sit at the entrance of the restaurant rather than in the main where you are packed in beside tables for two on either side and I mean right beside you - perfect for those who don't want to speak to their dinning partner as you can just listen to the diners next to you. The ventilation in the restaurant is very poor in the main section; there are no windows. On the night we dined there it was oppressively hot. A very uncomfortable experience.
