A Great Little Restaurant

We stumbled on this little place whilst out for a walk and ended up eating there twice during a long weekend in Sydney. The restaurant is small and unpretentious and the food was very good; it was also very good value. The winning feature though was the staff; they were fantastic!

We love coming here, Jo and the team are lovely. Their lunch deal, $15.90 for pizza/pasta and a drink means tables fill up quickly so would recommend booking. Love the lamb salad here too. Very reasonable wine list and also BYO. Relaxed, casual atmosphere, generous serving sizes and a local gem.

Lucetta is a nice restaurant to go in if you are really hungry. The food is correct. It is not a gastronomic restaurant, nonetheless, I really enjoyed it. Staff is amazingly nice and polite.

Have walked past Lucetta many times and now wish I had stopped to eat before. Great casual dining restaurant with good pasta , pizza and salad options. Fixed price option also available choice of pasta, pizza or salad plus drink (soft drink, house wine and select beers) for $15.90. Great value. Very friendly service. Will be back.

We were staying at Millers Point and were looking for a quiet restaurant when we came across Lucetta. It was a wet night but we were given a warm welcome when we arrived. The service was prompt and friendly. The traditional Italian menu was extensive but we eventually decided on Rolled Lamb Shoulder served with vegetables and Grilled Salmon Fillet... More

We have been here several times for lunch and the service, atmosphere and food is consistently excellent. I love the lunch deal $15.90- glass of red, white or beer and a pizza, pasta or salad of your choice. There are usually 4-5 of us who go and we share usually a few different pizzas and the pumpkin and rocket salad.... More

We ate here twice both times the food was beautifully cooked. The atmosphere ios very relaxed and friendly. It is comparatively inexpensive for the Rocks. There is also a well chosen selection of wines.

I was in Sydney for business and dining alone so I was feeling a little self-conscious. Found Lucetta's on a walk around the Rocks. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The food tasty and the pannacotta the best ever (I eat a lot of pannacotta).

Just arrived in Sydney with my son and stumbled on this while exploring. We must have caught them on a bad night. Waitress very friendly and helpful but.. Tomato, mozzarella and balsamic salad was just ok Calamari was somehow chewy with soggy batter, well I think it was batter? Served with a small bowl of mayo. Imaginative. Vegetarian fettuccine: huge... More

Attentive service, good choice and well presented food. They served us with a smile, and were quick and efficient. Very good choices, the salmon and salad and salmon and vegetables were both good portion sizes and just like home cooking. The restaurant was not crowded. Would come back!
