Service was good and place is nice for a romantic dinner but food was nothing special. I thought it was a nice experience there over all. My husband had the rabbit and liked it. I had the cod in tomato sauce with raisins and it was a bit too chewy or firm to chew. The pasta was good, penne arabiata,... More

Since my very first visit 12 years ago, every chance I go to Rome, I eat at "da Lucia". Never failed me nor my friends whom I have taken with me. It makes you understand what good Italian style eating is.

They serve authentic Roman food, and one is romantic, it is possible to sit outside in a small alley where laundry hangs from one house to another. Unfortunately, there are more tourists especially Danes.

We went to Trattoria da Lucia after eating at Trattoria Da Olindo the previous night and, while this restaurant offered fairly good food, it was not on par with other restaurants that we visited in Rome. We were there in March, not a massive tourist season, yet most people in the restaurant spoke English. We were seated in a back... More

The main dishes were really bad, they lack of care, as if they were cooked too fast, after reading the Lonely planet critic, we expected more. The desserts were what saved the dinner. They were wonderful, the best tiramisu I have ever tried but they only compesated the poor main dishes.

The food was really simple but so full of flavour. Perhaps slightly more expensive than some other trattorias in the area, but the wine was very cheap. Nice service and good recommendations from the waiter. Would recommend.

We tried to get a table at a restaurant round the corner but there was at least an hour waiting time so we came here and got a table through the back. The room lacked any ambiance and echoed our voices horribly but we felt lucky to have found somewhere to eat at last. Out pasta dishes were tasty but... More

We stayed in an apartment around the corner from this place and decided to eat here on my birthday since it shares a name with my wife's sister. Pros: 1. The raw honey from the pecorino and honey appetizer was awesome. 2. We arrived shortly after it opened for dinner and were seated immediately, 45 minutes later the line for... More
