Friendly, and good food

Friendly attentive staff who looked after us well. The food was delicious, we weren't rushed, and sharing plates was not a problem. The wine list was good, and the staff had recommendations. I wouldn't hesitate to return.

Although they were understaffed, the service was great, friendly and attentive staff. Food was amazing! Good portions and very tasty! I'll be back again.

The experience started well with very attentive service and some great Arancini. It was done the right way with a sumptuous lump of mozzarella in the center rather than the easy way that so many restaurants do to save prep time. Unfortunately, as it became busier, the service dropped off substantially. No check in for quality of food, no additional... More

I go to Lucetta a lot and it's usually but today I was very disappointed by the invading waitress at the counter who asked me if I wanted to add a tip in. I politely answered "no thank you" as 1. This is Australia and not America and 2. The service wasn't spectacular. She asked me why I didn't want... More

This restaurant is just a short walk along from The Langham Hotel in Kent Street. We first visited at the beginning of February. They have a very large selection of pizzas and of course other dishes including pasta. We enjoyed our meal so much we went for several consecutive nights. The first night we each had their rocket, parmesan and... More

We were here on a Thursday night, the staff is extremely friendly and nice. Sadly the food was not good, when I asked for bread they said they had run out of it. The pizzas were looking great but they were tasteless, we tried the margarita and the "chicken pesto".

Walking down Kent street in Sydney, just down from our hotel, we spied the "Lucetta" restaurant. From the street it looked nice and the people inside, it was open aired, looked like they were enjoying themselves. I''m a lasagne lover so I ordered the "Meat Lasagne" and my wife order a penne pasta. Our dishes were OK, just not great.... More

Had a great meal there last night. The food was delicious - we had a variety of pizzas, salad and pastas - it was all very good. The pesto was made with pine nuts - which to me is a sign of good quality pesto i.e. with no addition of other cheaper nuts which is always an issue for people... More

First visit based on TripAdvisor reviews. Inviting Italian decor with indoor and outdoor seating. Set menu and a la carte. We had garlic bread and a variety of pizzas, Casear salad, pasta pesto and blue cheese gnocchi. The food was excellent, pizzas substantial with generous toppings and good sized pasta. Very reasonably priced. Friendly, efficient service. No hesitation in recommending.
