The food was incredible at Lucia. After reading reviews on trip advisor I was led to believe that Carmen was the best restaurant here in Medellin, but after eating there I felt I had been duped. I acctualy came across this restaurant just by walking around Parque Lleras and I was so happy to find this place! Lucia has the best Italian food I have found so far in Medellin, and I have tried most of the reviewed Italian restaurants here; I love Italian food and I have lived in Italy for a year and a half.
I went with a friend and we split the gnocchi, a fantastic steak that was straight out of a Flintstones episode that had an amazing Gorgonzola sauce to pour over the roasted potatoes that accompanied the steak and a order of grilled vegetables that was just perfect. I didn't think it could get any better then came desert. Fresh ricotta drizzled with honey and topped with toasted pine nut's and bee pollen. After having so many mediocre to poor meals here in Medellin it was a blessing to find this place!
