Walked in early evening with 2 other couples to be confronted by door staff and told, no t-shirts you can't come in! I explained we was hoping to eat and was told to go across to the restaurant. The restaurant was busy and had a good atmosphe, the waitress came over and explained they wouldn't have a table for about... More

The staff here are delightful even during an extremely busy Saturday service. The menu has plenty of choice, food is lovely and really good value. Have been on numerous occasions and can honestly say I've only ever had good experiences.

We brought our daughter for her 7th birthday, with her best friend, and they were treated like royalty! The restaurant was very busy, with an hours wait, but the girls wanted to stay, and we're glad we did! First, some lovely ladies already dining heard it was our daughter birthday and bought her and her friend a mocktail each and... More

My wife & I dined here one evening. Although busy, we were served quickly, & the food was excellent. We had planned to dine somewhere else the following evening, but instead decided to return. Again, we were not disappointed. We both had a different meal to the previous evening, both were again delicious. In my opinion, meals were very reasonably... More

We were really disappointed with the food when we visited Lucia's, we were seated inside, opposite the main building, the quality of the food wasn't to the standard of an italian meal we are used having. My husbands Lasagne was bland & l had to send my fish cakes back as they were cold, probably due to the fact they... More

We live in York and eat out at least twice a week. Decided to give Lucia's a go after a bad experience 2 years ago. BUT... we waited for 10 minutes beside the 'Wait here to be seated' sign and were ignored by no fewer than 3 members of staff (including one guy I presumed to be the Manager). Finally,... More

My daughter and I were here yesterday, this is our second visit but won't be our last!!! We ordered a cocktail and then decided to have something to eat also. We weren't very hungry so both decided to have a sandwich. I ordered a club sandwich and my daughter, the steam and mushroom ciabatta. Both of these came with chips... More

We visited York for the 2nd time recently and brought with us our 4 year old and 2 year old boys. We decided to go to Lucia's again one evening. We sat outside this time and the children really enjoyed this. It was freezing cold out but the cosy Christmas blankets and heaters kept us nice and warm. Service was... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant after intending to eat here for three years. What a disappointment. The staff are disinterested, talking between themselves to the point where we ended up in front of the waitress showing us to our table. The menus were put on the table as we sat down then as we are reading them another... More

We found ourselves in York at dinner time and came across this very large restaurant. The service was prompt and attentive and the food was of high quality.
