The restaurant is set in a type of courtyard and has a large outdoor space where you can dine (even in the winter!). It has a nice décor and is fairly lively inside, but maybe a little tight. The staff are friendly and the food was quick even though it was fairly busy. I had the creamy mushrooms for a... More

Visited this restaurant in central York for the first time and it was excellent. Went off the back of recommendation from locals and was not disappointed! Great food!

Visiting my daughter in York, she recommended Lucia's for dinner, after a day of Christmas shopping. She had been there for lunches at various times and had enjoyed herself. It was the best end to the day. It was a cold evening, so we decided to eat indoors. Outside seats were provided with cosy blankets! Staff were frendly, courteous and... More

Visited Lucia's on a busy Saturday afternoon, initially told we would be waiting 40 minutes and went to have a drink upstairs. We ordered 3 very nice cocktails and were seated at our table within 30 mins. Food orders were taken quickly and food arrived nicely presented. Only minor complaint would be glasses for water and wine were warm. Overall... More

We've been to Lucias three times now and always said we'd leave a review. After a third outstanding visit we have to share this. The first time we visited it was pure chance, we saw a beautiful secluded restaurant with outdoor heaters, Spanish music and lit up like Christmas with wonderful lights. The service was outstanding which is rare with... More

I've put that our visit was October 2014. But we come all the time. It's where I come with my boyfriend and my friends. The food is amazing every single time, the mid week drinks offers are a brilliant idea. The location is my favourite in York and the staff are always lovely.

We stopped in here for lunch the other day, a return visit for us. Tasty tapas and a glass of wine in a vibrant location - just what we needed after a busy shopping morning. We'll be back on our next visit to York.

Wasn't our first choice but wandered into this wine bar for a feed. Went upstairs to bar to await our table and stood in queue for 10 minutes while the solo barman struggled to serve. Got our table before I got served. Restaurant made up for it. Good was reasonably priced, great variety and delicious. Well worth a try.

Visited York for a shopping treat with mum, sister and Nan on 18 November 2014. Stumbled upon this great restaurant. Food great. Fast service. Lovely staff. Waiter even brought out cocktail with sparklers as a celebratory drink and all staff joined in singing happy birthday which was a lovely gesture. Will definitely return when visiting York.
