I am from Calgary, visited the Santa Lucia Italian Restaurant last week, and it was such a wonderful experience. The waiter was new but he knew all about the restaurant and was very efficient. We had the lasagna. Must say the best lasagna I have had in a very long time, and I am a lasagna freak!! My husband and... More

Absolutely perfect meal. It was very, very tasty. Make reservations as it is a busy place. I had the veal and I would highly recommend it.

Sometimes you just want to eat the food you know and love and this is a good place to go for it. This was my second trip here and both were good experiences. The menu is what you'd expect for an Italian restaurant and the service can be slow when they get busy but it's comfortable and relaxed. I like... More

We ended up eating here twice during our stay because it was so good. If you're going around a mealtime we'd highly recommend making reservations as it's a popular spot. Over the 2 dinners we had different types of pizza, bison bolognese, and lasagna, which were all very good. The tear and share bread appetizer is incredible and fresh. When... More

This is a good place for a quick, tasty meal. Both pizza and pasta were delicious but the menu is not especially imaginative. The short wine list was made even shorter by the absence of two wines and we ended up having to have a bottle which was more expensive than we would normally have paid

Menu looked interesting so we went in with another couple that were considering going in. (Apparently we were entertaining the customers inside as they saw us hovering outside). Menu varied and good daily special which my husband enjoyed and portion was enough. Family members with us had the lasagna which they thoroughly enjoyed. Basic decor but was bright and clean....

Had to ask for liquor menu which server threw at us. Had to ask for beer glasses - she suggested we use the wine glasses. Brought beer glasses when we insisted. They were chilled - so someone in the restaurant knew what they were up to. Our food - lasagne and manicotti - was average at best. The place was... More

Lots of traditional choices for an Italian restaurant but all just a bit better and delicious. There were 4 of us and we had manicotti, veal parmigiana, fusilli and lasagna. All were delicious. Small but good wine list and friendly, efficient service. An excellent choice.

I find it hard to believe this place is receiving ANY positive reviews. We paid nearly $80 for 2 large and 1 medium pizza and had to pick it up ourselves as they don't deliver. We thought it MUST be good pizza if this is the case. We were so wrong! The toppings were so skimpy that you could barely... More

We went to Santa Lucia Cafe on a Wednesday evening. It was very busy with a bit of a line up. We did not have a reservation and usually don't care to wait but we really wanted an authentic Italian restaurant. There are a number of restaurants that make pizza in the area but not a full Italian menu. Our... More
