Wonderful decor and courteous service. Delightful Italian menu at very reasonable costs. Located in a home setting you feel as if you are dining among your family. The portions are large so doggie bags are in order.

After traveling all day from Florida, I thought I would settle for a bite to eat at a fast food place. When I saw Lucio's I knew that is where I wanted to go. The building is beautiful on the inside and out. I was seated early and received respectful and appropriately timed service. The entire menu is quite affordable.... More

We were there Mother's Day for lunch. One of us had only the salads which were good. The other of us had the buffet, which was basically 1950's style white food, pork tenderloin, shrimp and white rice, and English peas with carrots in a white sauce. It is friendly but we would not give it a favorable review, food-wise. Without... More

Lucio's is among the better restaurants in Culpeper, a town known for its excellent eaterys. The food is consistently good and the service is friendly. There is no effort to rush their guests through the meal. A delightful setting in the middle of town.

Italian is the comfort food of the soul. This restaurant tries to deliver, but does not quite hit the mark. Food is 'good'. Probably as good as I can make at home. The building is very nice, but a home does present an awkward venue for a restaurant. Overall - pretty good and I would return.

Went on a Saturday night. Place was cold. One table had a table cloth, ours did not. Suggest they place candles on the tables as it is dark and this would really help. Some food is not fresh, (e.g. the clams,) so be aware. Asked for hot tea and received it in lukewarm water so the tea did not dissolve.... More

I cannot get enough of this place! I am from San Diego so have to fly across the country, but it is definitely worth it. I will be back soon!

My husband and I ate here while spending a night in Culpeper. There are many excellent restaurants in Culpeper, and it was a difficult decision to decide to go somewhere we had not yet been in place of the others we knew were great. But, we decided to try Lucio's. We had been bicycling all day and were a bit... More

Staff is polite and accommodating. Bread was served with oil and spices (not sure if it was olive oil). The meal was satisfactory or better. Great find in this town.
