Tasty meal

We basically stumbled upon this restaurant over the weekend and it was a lucky find. The food was quite good. It wasn't busy when we were there so we had good service and were served quickly. Meals were tasty and not heavy or overloaded with cheese and spices. Bruschetta was delicious.

We were initially scheduled to go to Mama Luisa but he host/owner was an absolute jerk when we called to confirm our reservation. We went to Lucia's instead. Service was very friendly and professional. The atmosphere was warm and casual. Food was awesome! We eat a lot of Italian and it was among the best Italian meals we have ever... More

went for dinner. service was extremely slow. It took us 90 minutes to complete our dinner since the time orders were placed. We ordered a pasta and 2 different veggie pizzas. The pizzas are too cheesy/oily and do not have enough fresh ingredients. Pasta was floating in oil. Prices are higher than what you expect for this quality restaurant.

Quaint little restaurant in central location with delicious food. I had the best manicotti ever and would recommend.

The restaurant definitely not fancy. The decor and ambiance is not why we go there. It is very cozy, food is delicious. I always save room for the desert. I love that they bring it out on the tray and let you look at what they offer. Reservations during busy season are highly recommended. We visited them on 4th of... More

We were looking for pizza and chose Lucia, not realizing it's on the slightly classy side of casual dining. Fortunate choice, as the pizza was delicious!! Thin crust with red sauce that's full of flavor but not too heavy, it was northern Italian style that our kids loved as much as "American" pizza. Note that the pizzas only come in... More

Wanted something different than seafood or pub food so we found Lucia's right on Thames and took a chance. It wasn't crowded at all (small inside) and we got the best table in the place - right in the front window! Everything was great - service was a little slow, but food was piping hot when served, spot on flavors... More

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 into... More
