So this is a nice looking place very close to work so a bonus as was just easy to get to. Staff is super friendly and food was great. Funny enough we ordered mains whilst we noticed most people order pizzas which smell and look amazing so we are definitely going back for Pizza!

We stumbled upon Lucetta whilst looking for somewhere to eat in the pouring rain. Despite looking like drowned rats, we received a warm welcome from the staff. From the outset, they were attentive and polite. The portion sizes for our food were extremely generous. For those who don't know, Lucetta is a BYO for anyone wanting to save the pennies.... More

We had dinner here one night and sat outside. The Mediterranean salad was amazing! We shared that as an appetizer and we really enjoyed it. The pasta dishes were very good as well. The service was average, nothing good or bad.

Found via Trip advisor and it matched the other great reviews. Great food at very very reasonable prices for Sydney. Excellent staff added to the night with the friendly banter and a great atmosphere all round. Do note its only BYO wine so I had to leave my beer as a tip but the staff didn't mind!

We were staying in darling harbour for the night and read some good reviews on Lucetta so decided to walk the 15 minutes to check it out. If it wasn't something we knew was there we probably wouldn't have come across it. They were full to the brim but the service was still very friendly and attentive. The food was... More

I was a little worried as some Italian places don't cater for gluten free but here they have the pastas and pizzas available as gluten free. I had penne with tomato, garlic, basil and olive oil. The pasta was terrific unlike some gluten free pastas. Even my dining companion thought it was as good as normal pasta. Staff were busy... More

Living in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney, we often complain at the lack of quaint eateries in Sydney. Melbourne attracts them like a magnet!! But hey .... my wife and I were mistaken .... Lucetta - right in the heart of our own city - provides good, honest Italian food in very authentic surrounds. We almost thought we were in... More

We chose Lucetta as we were staying at the nearby Langham Hotel. The restaurant was very busy with sit-down diners and take-away. Staff appeared a little overwhelmed, to be honest, and it was quite noisy. My partner asked whether one of the entrees could be served as a main course and the wait staff stated that this was unable to... More

Lucetta is a regular haunt of ours. My friends and I are always welcomed warmly, the food is consistently good and the wine list has something for everyone. The only problem? Too many other people have heard how good it is and it's getting harder to get a table! Highly recommended.
