Absolute favorite restaurant, never disappoints.

I love the wine bar, especially in warm weather in the sidewalk cafe. Very cozy inside for 2-3 people. Local, limited Menu changes with seasons. Great bread with seeds is my favorite.

We had an excellent dinner here when recently visiting Minneapolis. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and the staff are very helpful and attentive. I had fresh green salad to start followed by the bolognese tagliatelle. My fellow-diners split a salad and a beef tenderloin. We ordered a bottle of Pinot Noir to accompany our meal which was recommended by our... More

A pleasant cafe with a French flavor. We went for brunch on a Saturday morning -- excellent choices including good bacon and scones. Outstanding service -- keep in mind that the cafe opens at 10am, and they are just around the corner from a great bookstore.

This is the one place I always come back to when I visit Minneapolis - love the small menu, and intimate space - very romantic and lovely food.

Went back to Lucia's for a late brunch. Food and service as good as before Lucia sold it. It still delivers the same deceptively simple food. As the local restaurant critic says "you think you could make this at home- but you can't". For out of towners it is important to know that Lucia's had been turning out great food... More

The restaurant, wine bar and bakery are so convenient for me because I live right in the area. I go at least once a week to the wine bar and bakery. I'm a big fan of the wine bar because the ambiance is cozy and warm. The food is fresh and tasty, I'm pretty pleased with the wine selections and... More

Taken here without knowing anything about the restaurant First impression "Hmm, not much on the menu." Then thought, they must focus on perfection for each meal since there's only a small selection...boy was that right. First off, my colleague is local and I'm from the west coast, so when I saw Pearl Salmon (King Salmon) on the menu I told... More

We have been going to this lovely restaurant for years. We absolutely love the food, the service, the ambiance. It is difficult to try new places sometimes when we know we can always count on Lucia's. Locally produced foods, great cooking, tasty cocktails, and a great wine list.

On a lovely Saturday I went for an early lunch at Lucia's while my spouse was at a conference. I had poached eggs and petite turnover, and both were fabulous. The coffee was strong and I loved it! On site parking was a huge plus.

We were in town to visit a family friend who is a great amateur chef. When he suggested dining at Lucia's, and told us that it had been one of his favorites for over twenty years, we jumped at the chance. He was right. Not being terribly hungry, we had a selection of their small plates, followed by several shared... More
