wine was excellent, service as well but the food was a bit unbalanced. Pastas were excellent but the small pizzas were average.

We went to Lucia for an early dinner. The waitresses were very friendly. We had Caprese salad and bruschetta prosciutto to start- delicious. I had the cannelloni stuffed with ricotta which was very good. I finished with tiramisu. Excellent meal. Great restaurant.

Food and drinks were amazing! I have nothing bad to say about our experience. One of the best pasta dishes we've had in a long time.
