Fast, efficient and eclectic

Had a short window of opportunity for lunch and went here based on my friend's recommendation. Had a bowl of pasta which was freshly made and very tasty - nice fresh ingredients. Great value for money, really fast service and friendly staff.

The Concierge at the Hilton on king William street told me about this place when I said I was from Melbourne and wanted REAL coffee. He said this place in the market is what I wanted. He was right! I also wish that I had stayed at the Hilton (!)

Great food and good prices, wide range of meals on offer. Getting a table can be a bit of a hit or miss

This was my first time I had something to eat at Lucia's Spaghetti & Pizza Bar. I had the Spaghetti Carbonara with chili and it tasted great & presented very well.

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!
