Had a meal here last night with some friends and had a really nice time. Sat outside under the canopy with heat lamps and blankets! (Although we didn't need the blankets). Food was delicious, couldn't fault it. Service was very good, staff were friendly and efficient. Would definitely go back.

We spent a day in York today and had a lovely lunch at Lucia's Wine Bar and Grill, the food was lovely; piping hot; served quickly and with a smile. They were very attentive without being over the top, friendly and all in all we had an enjoyable meal with a nice glass of wine. There was plenty of choice... More

Having been to York a number of times and to Lucia 3 times over the years with our friends, we decided to go along again, but we wished we had not bothered ! After waiting for over 40 minutes for our meal, one of our party went to find out what was happening. Apparently a change over of staff had... More

Good sized portion and they didn't scrape on the chorizo and cray fish. My boyfriend had pork belly and chorizo with mashed potato in... More

We visited on chance (party of four) and had a great evening. The place is a bit like a tardis as from the outside it looks rather small but is actually quite a large establishment with a very nice cocktail lounge upstairs. The atmosphere is exactly what you would expect from a real Italian restaurant - noisy, vibrant and friendly!... More

Lovely restaurant with a great atmosphere. Both the indoor and outdoor seating is great.... It's hard to choose! Food is excellent and the staff are very attentive. A great selection of cocktails are available too! Highly recommended.

I used to come here all the time for a meal but I find the food is starting to slack - it went from being amazing to ok! However the the atmosphere is great and makes you feel like your on holiday!
