I visited Lucia wine bar and grill on Friday 27th with 30 friends for a hen party. The restaurant is tucked away up a side street and is a lovely little find if you are visiting York. It has a great atmosphere and we all loved the outdoor seating/dining area with the heat lamps and blankets so people could sit... More

this is by far the best restaurant in york, shows how good it is when everywhere else was empty and we had to wait over an hour for a table. service is excellent, food is to die for and the price is very reasonable. well worth a visit.

This is IMHO the BEST eatery in York. Staff, food, ambiance can not be bettered. You know its good when the place is full, inside and out every night. We always pop in and book in advance - just to be sure of getting a table. Don't take my word for it - GO.

Our favourite place for a romantic lunch , service great food great and wine not bad either.Always find a nice table to people watch. Upstairs of an evening is even better and the investment is clear.

Three of us went last night for dinner, really nice experience. Good food in a buzzy environment, sit on the balcony outside enjoying the lovely night. Good cocktails and wines menu and great service from our waitress despite the busy night for her. Definitely recommended, I'll be back for my next visit in York

Nice restaurant, lovely outdoor space and food ok. However service either very rushed or very slow. Last night waitress taking plates when one person still eating and also gestured to her to pass a dirty serviette to her ( not even spoken, just a rude hand gesture). Waitress went from an english/italian twang accent to broad yorkshire, this did give... More

We visited Lucia's at the beginning of February. The staff were so friendly and attentive, nothing was too much trouble. Great atmosphere and good food. We sat outside with patio heaters and blankets, we thought it was great and will definitely return.
