It was our company Christmas party of 20 and we expected better. The house wine resembled vinegar and was frankly unacceptable. The food was average and the service disappointing. Towards the end of the meal the music was turned up to excruciating levels because apparently 'we were in a bar' and the manager on duty was indifferent to our complaints,... More

found this restaurant down a back alley looking for somewhere to sit and eat ( oh and drink) after doing 90 % of our Christmas shopping. Laden with bags we settled down. Service was lovely they recommended a larger table as it was their off peak period. Food delicious shared a starter and pasta and a tuna salad for mains... More

Having dined here before, we had no hesitation in visiting once again. As ever, there is a varied menu for both food and drink. Our meals have always been well prepared, and presented by helpful and polite staff. The diner has a choice of whether to sit inside or out. We always choose to dine outside under the canopies with... More

We tried to make a booking for a Saturday night here but were told they don't take reservations. Turned up around 7.30pm and had to wait around 2 hours for a table but it wasn't too much of a drag as we were able to get a seat in the bar upstairs and catch up with friends while we waited.... More

We went last Saturday lunchtime but there was no respite from the Christmas crowds, as the restaurant was so busy. We were told we would have a 45 minute wait in the upstairs bar before we could be seated, but it was over an hour before we made it to a table. We decided to go for a main course... More

When we went to Lucia first time we were impressed our Gamberoni was delicious (is it because we were really hungry??). After a few weeks we've decided to go there again and have this amazing Gamberoni again. This was the first dissapointment. Food was ok, just ok. Even that we weren't really happy we went there again and this was... More

Always pop into Lucia's and never disappointed. Will be coming again Friday. Staff are great and cocktails even better. Good value for money but if you can go on a Tuesday all cocktails are £3. Good atmosphere.

I visit Lucia's with my girlfriend for her 21st birthday. We made no reservation & the restaurant was pretty busy but we were immediately welcomed and found a table. Her wine was served immediately but my draught lager took around 10 minutes to arrive. This only negative from this experience. The staff were attentive and friendly throughout. My steak was...
