My sister had picked my up after a procedure at Lahey in Burlington and we felt like having some Italian food. I clicked on opentable and found this gem relatively close by. It was early, @ 5:15 and the place I was empty. We were seated immediately and within twenty minutes, the place was packed. Our waiter was pleasant and... More

Went tonight with my husband. Worst service we ever had. Waited and waited. Never refilled water. Bartender did not know how to make a toasted almond. Food was just ok. Only received 4 small pieces of asparagus with my meal. Loud, sorry will ever go back. Had been there years ago and loved it. Not now.

Half the fun of this restaurant is the ceiling! NOT going to tell you what it is, but the combination of the ceiling and the wonderful food make it a great time!

We hadn't been to Lucia's for a few years, but we're sure to go back again soon. My husband had the chicken parmigiana (no breading, please) and I had the chicken breast with asparagus, artichokes and olives. Both were truly excellent. Service was also excellent - waiter polite and helpful - and the portions were generous. Food much better than... More

They have a great menu that includes Italian classics and the best pizza you'll find outside of the north end. They have a very large bar area with flat screen t.v.'s. A real local restaurant with a lot of friends showing up all the time. An Italian "Cheers" type restaurant.

Very good classic italian restaurant in the suburbs. A little bit of the North End without the traffic. Right in Winchester center, traditional dishes made extremely well. Reminds me of what you might find on a small side street in Rome. Nicely sized portions, it is one of my favorites for special occasions.

We live very close to Lucia's so we tend to visit there regularly not because its great but because its convenient and during the week there isn't a large crowd. Every time I go my meal is okay and that is the best I can say. I have never been impressed with anything I order and I have tried several... More

We had an enjoyable Friday evening at this cozy suburban taste of Italy. Beyond the front door is the bar-area, and we opted for the back dining room to avoid the noise and flat screen TVs. As the evening drew on, the bustle crept into our dining area as well, but my discomfort about the noise was dissipated by a... More

I hadn't been to Lucia's in years & didn't even know it has been renovated. As soon as we walked in, I was pleasantly surprised by the open feeling and upscale bar. This was my mother's choice for her day so we do whatever she wants! We ended up running into some friends here & the staff was more than... More
