thinking of Italian this is a go to place

I love Italian food. Now in Newport you would think seafood and that is available here as well but I am a veal person with good pasta and a rich gravy. I get it here. Chicken parm. is really good with a large portion but made the old style way which is very nice. I asked for extra gravy and... read more

The family and I wanted a simple lunch while walking around Newport. Not really seafood fans, we thought a pizza would be quick and easy. I swear the small cheese we got came straight from a grocery store freezer. Very disappointed. The kids got pasta with sauce, and that was very good. Can't speak for the rest of the menu,... More

We eat here every time we are in Newport. This is authentic Italian! Lucia, is a great host. The spinach is amazing, and my daughter who does not like spinach craves it cooked this way.

My husband and I were hungry and stopped here for dinner our first night in Newport. The food was very good, the service was a little slow, and the dessert was great. It's a quiet spot, low lit with candles, and we really enjoyed it. We'd definitely go back again if we return to Newport.

After a disastrous attempt at eating at the Barking Crab, we decided to walk across the street and see if Lucia's Italian Restaurant could save our date night. I'm so glad we did! The place is cute, if a little outdated, and the waitress was very nice. It was nice and cool inside, which was a plus on such a... More

I'm normally not a huge fan of Italian food, particularly since dropping gluten from the diet, but Lucia's was a real treat. Veal was delicious, and the meat sauce probably the best I have ever had. Complex, meaty, obviously simmered slowly for a long time with just the right mix of herbs. Fourteen of us for dinner, and I didn't... More

Lucia's is one of the best Italian restaurants I've ever dined at. The food is outstanding, and never disappoints. Everything is fresh, tastes home-cooked, and the selection is diverse and unique. The restaurant itself is a bit small, and on a busy night it can be a little too "cozy" for my taste, but it's worth it for the wonderful... More

Sort of stumbled into Lucia before a downpour. The service was good and the food was fine. The price point was moderate. But the kicker was dessert, specifically the homemade mango sorbet. It came in the mango! Half a mango! Outrageously good! I'd go back just for that!
