“A italian dinner at the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

First I have to say the location is beautiful. Directly at the beach. Ask for a table on the first floor in direction to the beach. The view is really nice.
We were in time at the restaurant but our table was not ready. Therefore we had to wait in the lounge. We ordered 2 aperol sprizz as aperitif. They were perfect. 1 point.
After 20 minutes waiting time our table was ready. We had a table in direction to the beach on the first floor. Beautiful. One point for the location and the view. Sadly the service forgot us and we were waiting several minutes before we got the menu.
As starters we ordered the antipasti mix and the carpachio. The taste was perfect. One point. As main courses we ordered the raviolis and the gnocchi. Taste was perfect but both pastas were cooked too long. Sadly not al dente anymore. No point. The service was quiet attended but after the main course they forgot us again.
Finally we got the menu for the dessert. I had the Tiramisu and an Espresso. Both ok. The Tiramisu was nothing special.
Overall the evening at the La Lucciola was real good. Especially the view, the aperitif and the starters. But they have to improve their service and the cooking time of their pasta.

“Perfect evening - we went back for more!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

My wife and I visited La Lucciola on a tip from a fellow traveler, and were not disappointed. High quality Italian food (far beyond what we expected in Indonesia! Highly recommend the barramundi), reasonably priced (mains for $15-20 USD, cocktails for $11), and the setting was the icing on the cake (right on the beach, perfect view of the sunset over the water, somewhat removed from the crowds of the area). We enjoyed our time so much the first time that we found ourselves stopping in again to watch the sunset after a day strolling the streets in Seminyak.

Highly recommend it for a date night out in Seminyak.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

So worth a visit. Gorgeous views. 5 star service in a really relaxed atmosphere. Food is unbelievable. Cocktails are lush. Coffee is great. My partner and I had dinner here. We wanted to watch the sunset. Nothing disappointed.

“Not that cheap, but the view and food fantastic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

Waiters were not 5 star standard, but very friendly and nice
Food was to die for.
View fantastic, ask for the front corner table upstairs
Not cheap, four people with cocktails and bottle of wine $300
If you are only going out the one time somewhere nice, I would recommend here

“Outstanding dinner with friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

After leaving the kids at our villa we headed off to a great dinner at la lucciola. Extremely nice food. Get there on dusk to appreciate the water views. It's more expensive than most local eateries but worth the price.
