We received a warm greeting and smile on arrival. We were then shown to the table that we had booked. The restaurant was quite busy inside. Good service from our young waiter. Our meal arrived quite quickly. The pizzas that my cousins ordered very tasty.

Lucio's is a family favourite - by far the best pizza in Johannesburg (actually anywhere I've been actually). If you are looking for Italian - Lucio's the place to go!

I have been going to Lucio's for the past 20 years and there food is excellent. Their service is always friendly and I can recommend the restaurant to any one. They have a real trattoria atmosphere and feel. Try their Lucio Special Calzone, you will not be disappointed.

With good portions of tasty food and a family-friendly environment, Lucio's is a decent little spot, especially if you have kids. The decor is a bit eclectic and the service can be spotty, but it's worth the visit.

I drove past Lucio's Pizzeria several times not giving it a 2nd glance or thought until one day I met a friend there. The best kept secret EVER. An old family run Restaurant and you this flows through everything. The food is amazing and without a doubt the most awesome pizza - no skimping on any topping. The service is... More

Lucio's is great - if you like Italian food and you haven't been there then you must try it! Good food, extremely well priced and good service. This is one of those places that you will just keep going back to. The only negative is that the menu doesn't seem to ever change - but then again, sometimes predictability can... More

What a fabulous occasion,we received invitations to this special dinner! When we arrived we were given our usual warm welcome,there were hampers of Italian fare on our tables. The service was excellent and the music sweet! Our group of ladies had a splendid dinner starting with Blue Cheese Salad, assorted pasta and Pizza's which were all heartily eaten! Great evening!

Have been going to Lucio's for some 20 years. It is a family style, friendly restaurant. Our children have grown up there. We feel comfortable and welcomed there. Their menu is simple, but what they do, they do very well.
