“Good Value, very friendly”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

A little hit and miss in the establishment the night we had dinner there. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We met the owner and had a nice conversation about travels in Australia and in the US. One of the pasta dishes was very plain while others were very tasty. The restaurant has no air conditioning and was uncomfortably warm inside with no windows that open - so no breeze. If you are there in warmer weather be sure to sit outside. For an easy, reasonably priced family dinner I am sure we would go back, especially if we were locals and could get a better feel for the stronger items on the menu.

“Friendly, welcome and lovely food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

Was really pleased with this restaurant. Nice warm welcome with tasty food and not overpriced. Different to the many expensive restaurants in Sydney but in a good way. The personal touch really makes this a hidden gem.

“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!
