One of York's tucked away treasures!

We had the most enjoyable lunch sat outside at Lucia's. The sun was out but it was a bit breezy and so the heated lamps kept us warm. The deep fried Brie and crispy fishcakes were delicious and we treated ourselves to a cocktail jug. Would definitely recommend for its ambience, quality of food... read more

Lucia's was originally recommended to us (two couples) a few years ago by a taxi driver on the way from the races and turned out to be the best 'tip' we ever had. The staff are so friendly and nothing Is too much trouble. The food is amazing and during our now many visits we have never been disappointed. You... More

Good meal - the wrong main was delivered (risotto) but kept it and enjoyed nonetheless and was apologised and offered recompense. Place for young at heart to meet early evening from clientele

Visited here with few friends. The food was amazing and tasty. Waiting staff were friendly and welcoming despite being really busy. The only downside was that the main arrived in the middle of our starter. I personally didn't appreciated being rushed. Overall satisfied with my visit and recommend it to others too

Thank you for your review. We are delighted that you had a great meal with us. Please accept our apologies that your main arrived while you were still eating your starter, this is not normal practice at all as we never want any of our customer to feel rushed. You main should have arrived after your starter plates were cleared... More

We called in here after recommendation from a family member. The place was really nice with a great atmosphere. There was a restaurant but we'd already eaten so wanted drinks only. The staff were friendly and helpful. It's definitely a place we'd revisit on future trips to York.

I visited here with friends during a city break weekend in York. We had to wait an hour for a table as it was very busy. However we didn't mind as we sat and waited and had fab cocktails in the bar area which had a lovely atmosphere. The food and wine was tasty and reasonably priced. I ordered the... More

My wife and I love this place. A great restaurant hidden away with great deals on cocktails. Absolutely delicious food with the platters being particularly good. Highly recommend this place, really good service, nice atmosphere and very popular.

We came here on the off-chance whilst shopping with our children and were very pleased we did. The staff were very friendly and humorous, the food was very good and so was the wine! Our older children wanted something from the main menu, rather than a children's meal, but the staff were more than happy to tailor the pasta dish... More

There are a million places to eat lunch in York, probably one for every tourist. Lucia is consistently good. A lovely courtyard tucked away, and great food. It's great all year round - I've sat outside with a blanket to keep the cold away. Great salads, pasta, risotto and general Mediterranean goodness on the menu. My dining companion swears by... More
