Lovely fresh Italian food, favourites are the minestrone and spaghetti bolognese. A real Adelaide Institution. Always packed which makes for spotty service but all part of the chaotic, lively atmosphere.

Had a quick lunch with a friend. I had penne pasta with alla panna sauce, absolutely scrumptious. The serving sizes are just right for lunch. The coffee is delicious. All the staff are very friendly. The only negative I would say about Lucias is, the seating arrangements are very crowded and the seats are not very comfortable. I realise this... More

This place makes the best lasagne (only served of Fridays) the coffee is good and the service is efficient. If I'm in the central markets this is my restaurant of choice and has been since I was a kid.

This cafe is very popular and has a friendly atmosphere. But the service was slow and the air conditioner was on in winter! Her poached eggs on toast were popular and the coffee was terrific. But my pizza was an uneven doughy deep-dish mess. Overall, some good points, and well positioned in the markets, but a bit disappointing.

Had lunch here while having a day out at the market with my wife and son. Convenient location. Tables and chairs are basic. Service ok. Enjoyed good pasta and coffee while sitting outside 'in the market'. Great place to watch the world go by! Very popular and good value. Would go back.

Lucias is always dependable for good coffee and cake. Service could be improved by a few more smiles but is very efficient. Love to watch the world go by here....

Very very busy. Lots of local repeat customers on first name basis with owners. Has been operating for over 30 years and it shows in the quality produce that they use to produce great food at a very low price.

Yes, we can all recommend. Finally a place that makes great coffee and not to mention Italian cake yum. Could have gone every day, perfect spot in market square.

Thank you for a wonderful breakfast! My husband is a chef and thought his breakfast was the best he ever had! The quality of all the items was exceptional. The staff were amazingly friendly and helpful. Can't wait to come back to Adelaide and sample another of Lucia's meals!
