    The table was too small to cater 6 people. Other than the bread, the food was all way too salty, even we told our waiter after the appertizer and skip the salt, the main still came in so salty that we left half of the plate . Not worth the buck.

    The food was excellent. The server was rude though, and she came ever two minutes at the beginning to ask our order when we kept telling her we weren’t ready, and she acted annoyed that we weren’t. I asked for a birthday cake as we were out for my sister birthday and she forgot to bring it. The server was unfriendly, not engaging and made our experience slightly unpleasant.

    The service was great and so was the ambience. I was however disappointed in the agnolotti. That was meant to be stuffed with rabbit and chestnuts…but was primarily stuffed with ricotta. (Not listed on the menu) I didn’t taste or see any rabbit or chestnuts. The lamb though was phenomenal!

    The food was good but in the open kitchen, the staff wore their masks on their chins the whole time, against city regulations. Why check if people are vaccinated at the front door if you flout the regulations when you make my food? My wife is a health care worker who doesn't really want to be exposed to these risks when she goes out for dinner. Lucia, work with everyone else on controlling the pandemic.

    Been dining at Lucia for a while now and it truely never disappoints. Menu changes pretty often but the execution is incredible and the rustic Italian stye is always present. Their outdoor patio is heated and protected from the wind so it makes for a perfect environment to explore their dishes family style, even as the tempurature starts to drop.

    We're big fans of Lucia, and the new fall menu items made me leave another review! The charred cabbage salad and the roasted squash and radicchio are both highly recommended - really well thought out and balanced. The spaghetti with broccoli pesto was delicious and a great addition to the menu. Excellent service and great wines.

    This was an extremely disappointing meal. My partner and I went for her birthday dinner (during COVID), arriving promptly at the time of our reservation, but made to wait outside the covered patio in the rain while our table was still being used. Upon being seated, we were shown to a table next to the door and inches away from another grouping of two tables where four people would soon be seated next to us. We asked to be seated elsewhere, but this was not accommodated. The entire meal, staff were running up beside our table, practically brushing against us, as they brought food in and out of the restaurant. We felt smothered by our proximity to the other table and generally uncomfortable from a COVID-perspective the entire time — there was also no vaccine passport check. The food was fine, but overall this was an extremely upsetting experience, especially it being in the context of a birthday dinner and feeling too close to the other patrons during COVID. I will absolutely not go back and would not recommend Lucia to anyone.

    We took a couple out for their engagement. The atmosphere is great at Lucia. Our server though forgot an order we made though and it put a damper on my friend's time there. This was our second time there and we will go again, I am just hoping this won't happen again.

    Had a very enjoyable experience at Lucia last night. The service was excellent, as was the food, and the ambiance was very warm and cozy. We were seated on the outdoor patio, which was warmed by outdoor heaters; as well, each seat was furnished with a fuzzy blanket in case it got too chilly. The only complaint was the noise level. When we arrived there at 7:30, the patio was full, and it was quite noisy. As the evening progressed and diners left, the level decreased, so by around 8:30-9pm, it had decreased to a level where it was much easier to converse. All in all, a very enjoyable experience - highly recommend it.
