I came to Cafe Lucy because I was looking if a good Italian meal in the Village. When I saw the rating on Trip Advisor, I thought I'd found my place. It turned out that it was just out of the Village - and it was not busy, especially for a Friday night. The atmosphere was just barely OK - it could easily be made nice. Why they need a big flat-screen TV in a restaurant, I don't know. At least the sound wasn't on. The music, real Italian music like you'd hear in Italy, was really nice.
The Caesar Salad was very good, but the portion was small for the mid-size bowl. The garlic bread was delicious. I ordered the Seafood Lasagna and, true to the reviews, the portion was huge. The pasta was a nice consistency and the sauce was delicious, but you could really only taste the shrimps when it comes to seafood.
The server was quite friendly, but glasses sat on the table long after they were empty - and until I left. All the food was served promptly - except I was offered more bread when my meal came and I had to ask again when he did the quality check. (I was half way through meal by then).
So, overall it was good, but as visitor to Vancouver, I'd look for someplace that feels more special
next time round.
