Has no taste at all. That birthday was so extremely loud. It was very disappointed. I have put 2 stars in... read more

Taste is unique, I had steak in black pepper sauce, well done, meat quality was perfect. Sauce is rich, side dish potatoes in creamy cheese sauce and broccoli in butter sauce were very tasty. Over all experience was great. Go there at 9 pm to catch up with the live piano on thursdays, fridays and saturdays

Very Nice Place, awesome atmosphere, nice food as well and you won't regret trying a soup and a platter there... Hey, it's not cheap by the way... but deserves the money.

Ah! the lovely Santa Lucia that has managed to retain its quality, service and overall ambiance in the heart of Alexandria over the years! Great food, live Piano being played, attentive waiters, white table cloths and leathers chairs,.... Highly recommended for dinner rather than lunch.

Well... there was nobody except our table. We ordered according to waiter advice, it was terrible!!... More
