“Lucetta - great lunch special”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The lunch special here is great - big servings, and a glass of wine to boot - what more can you ask for. Atmosphere is lovely, like being in little Italy. The service is fantastic. Will go again definately - ps get there early for lunch it does get busy, even on a monday.

“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

If you happen to be nearby it's worth making your way to Lucetta. Service is good, the food is excellent & very well priced. There wasn't any aircon when we visited - probably better to sit outside if you go in the warmer months. We'll be back!

“So good we went back the next evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

What a great find. We visited for dinner on our 3rd out of 4 night's in Sydney. We were greeted with a warm welcome by Jo, co-owner, and had a great meal. I ate one of the best pizzas ever and my husband had a delicious gnocchi. We returned the next evening and a tasting of Australian wine awaited us and we were converted. The wine list is excellent! It was great chatting to the Chef - other co-owner - a really nice guy and not a bad cook judging by how busy the place was! Visit!

“Great value lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Lucetta is a great place for lunch. They have a two-page lunch menu that offers a choice of pizzas, pastas or salads with a beer wine or softie, and for a very good price. The service is friendly, even though they are busy. The restaurant itself is a little noisy but that's mainly because it is busy (if you are getting there close to 1pm or later it is probably best to book), and it is not overbearingly loud - just a good hum of happy people.

The pizzas are fantastic - big and filling, you won't need any extras. I've also had pasta dishes on previous visits and they have been good, but it's hard to go past the pizzas in my opinion, and given how many people are ordering them it doesn't take too long for them to arrive.

You also get to watch the many joggers go by - exercise vicariously I say - and if you're so inclined and in luck, you may see a few firemen at the station immediately opposite.

I recommend Lucetta, always a good choice for lunch,

“Most enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

We had a very enjoyable evening meal at this restaurant. The staff were friendly, attentive and obliging. The place was full and happy. It was obvious a number of patrons were locals and repeat clients. Overall a good experience.
