Set in the new funky East Village 2-4 Defries St Zetland. After living in Sydney & Rome most of my life I found genuine, fresh flavours of Italy in the entree and the delicious pizza melted in my mouth. A must for pizza lovers who are after the real thing. I would recommend going early and ordering drinks at the... More

THE favorite pizza in Sydney for sure! Great job Lucio, great job! Every time we are there, there are Italians eating, which is a great sign! They have a proper oven, the dough and the crust is perfect! Just perfect! Any pizza you take!

Starting from the service and finishing with the food, nothing is great here! They don't take reservations and the place is tiny, the waiters are all italian with their typical attitude of superiority, their English is minimal and even with all these cons, when you show up asking for a table, you get the look of "oh no, more customers"...

I'm not sure why this place receives such a top position on this site. The pizza was good but certainly not good enough to earn such a rating. Service was very friendly, atmosphere was good and the meal was good enough to warrant a return visit if we wanted pizza again. Menu is relatively limited to pizza and a few... More

We look at the reviews and pictures and decided to try it. It was a fantastic experience. Lucio offers real italian pizza. We particularly loved the appetizers too!! It is a must eat restaurant in Sydney!

I'm Italian. I've been to Lucio with my boyfriend last night. We had Polipetti (baby octopus) to start, Radicchio salad with gorgonzola, a pizza Bufalina and a bottle of red wine Primitivo. The food was not as good as in Italy, I think because you cannot get some of the original ingredients here, but it was overall a very good... More

The pizza is Lucio's really is second to none! We arrived at 6.10pm on Sunday evening and even though the place only opened at 6.00pm we got one of the last outside tables. We ordered Calamari and Stuffed Zucchini flowers for entre, both of which were lovely. For the pizzas we ordered the Tartufata and the Speck, and they were... More
