Lucio's is a gorgeous Restaurant to sit in, surrounded by art works, in a lovely building and a very pretty street. A real destination restaurant where you could spend hours. Our welcome today was lovely, the food today (lunch) was outstanding, the service very poor....More

The food was excellent including their seafood pasta that has been on the menu for 35 years. I understand why after tasting it; as good as any in Sydney. Wine list: Their $70 bottles of red taste like they cost double that. Wonderful night.

Have been here many times over the years. I couldn’t fault the quality of our lunch. Every dish was superb and fresh. The wine list is also still excellent. The service is also very good and very personable.

Description
Lucio's Italian Restaurant was established in Paddington in 1983 and enjoys a remarkable reputation for exceptional Italian food and magnificent Australian Art. "Food and art for me is like the air that I breathe," says Lucio Galletto OAM. "The combination of great food, great service and great art on the walls is, in my view, one of the best dining experiences you can imagine." Lucio's is open five days a week, Tuesday to Saturday for lunch and dinner with a focus on Northern Italian cuisine, fresh pasta and modern touches to classic dishes.
