Great pollo al forno, disappointing seitan!

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... read 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

Relaxed, intimate and great meal. It offers true Italian cuisine and making an advanced reservation is well worth it. Our meals were superb

We we visiting Newport and looking for a good meal on a cold day. We spotted Lucia restaurant right in downtown. It didn't look fancy--just simple and comfortable. It turned out to be a far better meal and experience than we'd expected. We were served by the owner, who patiently explained the menu and made excellent recommendations. The food was... More

The pizzas were good. The service was fine. The decor okay. There were 4 of us with 2 small kids--the portions were ample. Friendly staff. Reasonable price. The restaurant was right in the center of things.

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
