Most of us had a veal scallopini special that was very good, other entrees were okay. On this Saturday night, the service was slow and casual. Bread came to the table eventually but it was disappointingly American for an Italian restaurant. Salads were good. It would have been nice -and we do expect for the price - a bit of... More

We went. When we got there it was empty. When we left it was full. Not much more I care to say. Not likely to go there again. Its Newport, what can you say!

We ate there last night with another couple. It was a very chilly and windy night, but inside it was so cozy and the waitress was very cordial without being hovering. My husband thought that the tables were too close together--he felt a little crowded. We enjoyed the wine that we selected. My pasta dish: Penne Mamma Afra was extremely... More

We were looking for a casual dining experience and selected Lucia's from a list provided by our B&B. It was a very quiet Monday evening in Newport so service was not an issue and all of the dishes we had were excellent. The bruschetta starter was large, delicious and enough for two and our pasta dishes, a vegetarian offering with... More

Very nice atmosphere in a little small Italian Restaurant in Newport, RI. Right on Thames Street and easy walking distance from Brick Market area. Very friendly staff and wonderful food. Lobster and crab ravoli and Baked Manicotti were delicious. Nice hot Italian bread and butter. Will definately dine there again when in Newport.

We've been going to Lucia's since she and her husband first opened in the early 90's. The food is authentic Northern Italian, healthy as well as delicious. Spinaci Lucia is a must have. No matter what we order, we always add this incredible spinach dish as well. Entrees include fish, chicken, veal, and pasta. Vegans will also find it easy... More

We had the Bolognese sauce over rigatoni and a pizza with soup and salad. All were excellent. A bit on the higher side in price and our waiter seemed to overlook the change in our order and charged us more than we should've paid, but overall the experience was favorable. I would like to experience dinner.

We selected Lucia's from the reviews that indicated that it was very good Italian and it was. We arrived early for our reservation and we're seated immediately. We had manicotti and ziti. Both came our hot and very tasty. Our server was very attentive. The atmosphere is small but comfortable.

That's what the water in the pitcher tasted like! Awful service and very cramped and dark. Our server had no manners and didn't even check on us once. We will not be returning!
