Delicious and inexpensive!

Had the gnocchi with basil pesto. Was very tasty and reasonably priced. They make great coffees here and also love the 70s decor

The food is ok. but it isn't worth the consistently terrible service I have had over the years...There are plenty of Italian restaurants in adelaide with great service and l great food. They need to revamp the service. Same women with cold attitudes

The place, though small, has a nice homemade pasta and the staff is really helpful. Definitely a must go in Adelaide.

I sampled the 'half breakfast' (1 egg, 1 piece of toast, 1 piece of bacon, mushrooms and 3 small sausages instead of tomatoes) with a large coffee and paid under AUD$16. Great value! The service was polite and prompt and the food tasted great. The little restaurant had a relaxed feel to it given it was early morning and most... More

Nice place to have coffee in the morning and poached eggs on toast with tomatoes. They also have the best hot chocolate.

Wonderful place to stop for a light lunch after doing the markets. Cramped, noisy, and vibrant, you just have to do it. Good food good value and expected level of service from what looks like a small kitchen.

A very warm Adelaide day and a refreshing bruscetta. When it arrived, it looked oily. BUT we were mistaken - there was almost no hint of an oily taste. It was just there to carry the seasoning. The aroma of the freshly chopped tomatoes and the crispness of the toasted loaf were outstanding.

if you are going to the Adelaide Central Markets and entering from Grote St, Lucia's is at the end on the far right from the street. There's seating inside and out. It was Friday night so the market was busy and there was quite a line at Lucia's. But we found a seat, ordered from the counter and waited about... More
