Great Italian food in the Newport AreA

We dined at Lucia over MDW and my entire family enjoyed the food. The pasta and pizza are delightful and not heavy or greasy in anyway. All of the food was fresh. Our only complaints were that the staff was a little rude... When we asked if we could get a bigger table since 5 of us were squeezed... read more

I was recently to this restaurant while visiting Newport. The service was impeccable and the atmosphere was relaxing. The dish I chose was the haddock and it was to die for! If you enjoy fish this is definitely a winner!!! The haddock was so fresh! and was served with tomatoes and basil, drizzled with balsamic dressing with two asparagus on... More

We stopped here for a quick slice of pizza and salad. The food was excellent and the service very attentive. The restaurant was extremely clean, quiet, and just the perfect place for a quick lunch. We would definitely eat here again!

I wish I could give this place no stars. There are two things I pay for when I go out: service and good food. We literally walked out before ordering dinner because the service was so bad. Here is what I would have said to a manager had they come out. (1) I shouldn't have to ask for drinks (2)... More

Saturday evening visit for Dinner. Wonderful Italian dining with plenty of vegetarian options. Service was most welcoming and prompt even though we had no reservations. Great table in front window. Excellent, delicious food, prepared to perfection. Best Tiramisu. Highly recommend.

We came to Lucia on a December Monday because it offers a discounted winter menu on Mondays and Tuesdays when seated before 7 (Nov - April, two entrees for $19). I researched before hand and found raving reviews about the vegetarian options. Although not vegetarian, I am inclined towards vegetarian dishes (and find seitan delicious!). I found the Bocconcini di... More

Had a excellent meal and service last time in Newport. Recommend the salad Isalata del Goloso with mixed greens, oranges, and Gorgonzola cheese. It was absolutely delicious. We then had the tagliatelle Ai gamberi and cappesante which is ribbon pasta sautéed with garlic, shrimp, scallops red pepper and basil. This was one of the. Most tasty Italian dishes we ever...

Pedestrian, banal Italian fare was a big disappointment after reading the warm reviews. Three stars is generous given the undistinguished cuisine. First of all this restaurant is NOT BYOB despite the reviews indicating otherwise. For starters: a good Italian restaurant should have good Italian bread. Lucia serves insipid air bread that unfortunately was a harbinger of the entrees to follow.... More
