Loved this restaurant along with my husband, sister and brother in laws. Fresh, warm bread out of the oven. Three cheese ravioli with meat sauce was perfect. Shrimp and scallops with bow tie pasta was great. Everyone finished every bite on their plate.

We chose to dine here for the gluten free and vegan options and we couldn’t believe how delicious the food was (gluten free/vegan aside). I’m not sure of the background of this restaurant but it reminded me of the seemingly no frills eateries throughout Italy...More

Lucia offers a genuine italian menu that is exquisitely prepared. Ingredients are nothing but the best. Service is attentive without being intrusive. While you can pay less elsewhere there simply is no equivalent in terms of quality. Don’t be scared off by my comment on...More
