One of my favourite restaurants in York. Love the food here, however make sure you go when it's quiet and you can get a table outside, it's the best place to sit, like being in the med, tucked away down one of York's classic snickets

The food here is delicious, the atmosphere is lovely and the waiting staff are always friendly and helpful. The tapas are an especially excellent choice. We also love the cocktail bar upstairs which is well worth a visit before or after your meal. Also ask for the Lucia's card which gives you a 10% discount each visit. We normally visit... More

My partner and I visited here in April for his birthday. I had previously gone on line and ordered a loyalty card which gives certain percentage off food and drinks. We had visited here in February also, however that was just to the cocktail lounge which is upstairs, however we decided to opt for a meal here when we went... More

I came to Lucias for a short visit to the family and we came across this lovely restaurant and were seated outside. The food and ambience was amazing. The staff were very attentive with the service being amazing from our Sardinian waitress. Well done and highly recommended

Had a great meal with friends here at Lucia Wine Bar & Grill. Excellent food choices, great wine and cocktails, and fantastic service. They don't take bookings but if they don't have a table ready you can always wait in the wine bar and enjoy the reasonably priced drinks.

Visited on the 22/7/14 to celebrate my husbands 40th birthday, there were 6 adults and 5 children. Service was fantastic, staff were friendly and attentive but not over-bearing. Food was excellent and the overall atmosphere was second to none. Made our day very special.

At my friend's birthday party we were twelve girls and eventually became fifteen! The manager was excellent looking for space for us. They were very accommodating and the food was really tasty. The prices are fair and the atmosphere is lively. I normally consider myself quite critical but would come back again to Lucia's!
