Visited with my husband before Christmas for an evening meal. The food was absolutely spot on as usual (we have been several times before!) lovely bottle of red wine to go with it. Staff were friendly and attentive. Cannot fault Lucia's!

The service in Lucia's is excellent, friendly, attentive but not invasive. The restaurant is bigger than you imagine and creates a good warm and friendly atmosphere. The quality of the food is great also, well presented and just enough to make you feel satisfied.

Went to Lucia for my wife's birthday after being recommended by a friend. It was a Friday night and the restaurant was very busy with a great atmosphere! There is a 'no booking' policy so after just turning up there was a wait of 20 mins for a table outside or 40 mins for a table inside. We sat outside... More

Always a favourite in York! Tucked away in a secluded spot with lovely outdoor seating with heaters and blankets in the colder months. Fabulous food, great cocktails, even better atmosphere ! Would recommend the mussels in white wine sauce

One of my favourite paces to eat in York. Food is delicious, and with the heaters on you can sit outside no matter the weather or time of year.

Late afternoon we ordered at 3.00pm at 3.45 we asked where it was only to be told kebabs take a long time to cook. 4.00 pm waiter asked if we had ordered food. 4.10 we asked how long 4.15 we got it.

Thank you for your review. We are disappointed to read you did not enjoy your experience with us on this occasion. We believe the 'Kebab' you are referring to may be one of our skewers, we do cook everything fresh and apologise if you waited longer than expected. The amount of time you waited does seem much longer than it... More

I have been a fan of Lucia for the last four years, a fantastic place with atmosphere to meet friends, family and acquaintances. They have opened a restaurant in Harrogate my hometown which I order food and service second to none! So it has come as a surprise when in a Tuesday afternoon my visit to York Lucia has gone...

Thought the food distinctly average, I make better at home. Avoid the lasagne. We had to wait ages for a table, I wont bother again. Somehow they've achieved a buzz and got a reputation, I honestly can't see how.
