The food in this restaurant is exquisite with ample portions. I wish I could give it a great review but our dining experience was marred by a rogue waitress. My wife and I, my two daughters and my son decided to have a nice meal out to end our vacation. But our waitress was from the moment we arrived surly... More

We had pasta Bolognese and pollo a forno and they were both outstanding. this little Italian place is centrally located with fine service and an authentic Italian menu. We were just there! The prices are great.

Food was very good and reasonably priced. Service was also very good. Wine list is no too extensive, but that makes it easier to select a wine. Very pleasant accomodating service.

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
