We had to make reservations quite awhile in advance and now I can see why. We were not disappointed on any level and it was worth the wait. Food quality was outstanding and portions were generous. Service was top notch. Definitely on our short list for dining out. Highly recommend.

This has to be my favorite restaurant in the Buffalo, NY area. The food is sooooo very good. I would highly recommend Lucia's over any of the other top resturants.

Entrees were delicious! Apps were not hot, but tasty. Very loud atmosphere. Overall it was good but not worth the hype of making reservations months in advance.

We started the night with lemon drop martinis and the bang bang shrimp. Both were great - the shrimp was tasty but not overwhelmingly hot. My companion ordered the jambalaya pasta, with the andouille sausage, chicken and shrimp, and really enjoyed it. I had the braised short ribs. They were so tender and slightly spiced - a little more favoring would have been nice. The ribs came with good mashed potatoes, and very good grilled asparagus. We opted for the Intrinsic Red Blend wine, which was delicious and did not overwhelm either dish. An excellent meal, with great service! I’ll definitely return.

I wish I could give a bad review to make it easier to book a date at this place but I can’t!! Outstanding as always. Waitress (Jessica) was so well informed about the menu. Her suggestions were great and our dinners were terrific. We had a wonderful night for our anniversary dinner, 2 months late because that’s the soonest we could get a reservation that works for us.

Very good overall. The Banana peppers were not filled with enough cheese, I like all cheese not stuffing and they were only lukewarm when they came to the table. I guess that’s how the chef prepares them here.

Wedge was terrific, filet was great, shrimp great, hamburger, great

Everything was excellent. We started with the Arancini ball, pork belly and bang bang calamari, all were great. We had the Scallop Rissoto, Short Ribs, Lobster Linguini and Riggatoni Pesto with a meatball side. The service and food was all excellent!
