One of the best Italian restaurants

The food looked and tasted like real home made/cooked meals. The food was tasty and portions were proper. The waiters gave fantastic service.

The Alfredo has too much of a watery cream sauce and very little ham. Reading the good ratings I thought it would be great but alas. The waitress was awesome but he food a letdown.

Lucio's in Randburg serves the best Italian food! The service is top quality and their prices are reasonable.

Try their filletto. It is a nice family restaurant that is often quit busy. But always friendly and the service is great. A little on the pricey side but worth it.

In fact best pizza I have ever had anywhere in the world. Huge selection of Italian food. Quite often also have one of the two veal dishes on the menu and that's also very good. Very busy so best book or phone ahead for your take-away (that's what we do most Fridays).

It has been many years since I have been to Lucio's. We used to go often when our children were younger and we were living nearby. Now we have returned with the grandchildren. It is still brilliant, vibrant, same easy to choose from menu. Very enjoyable evening.....we will be back.....

Not necessary to write long stories about this place. Anyone visiting this restaurant will feel the warmth and sense of place. It's been there for a number of years and you can expect good food and good service. Maybe slightly off the beaten track - as far as international visitors are concerned. But then, it might be just that, that... More

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!
