Recommended by our nearby Hotel, we were not disappointed. Helpful, obliging staff and the most comprehensive Pizza Menu we have ever experienced. Good selection of interesting wines from around the country. Recommended for a casual meal with some fine wine. Will certainly return when next in Sydney.

We came across this restaurant by accident on our way to see a show at Roslyn Packer Theatre on a Wednesday night. It's a cute little Italian and it was warm and inviting on a cold winters night. The service was great & the food was lovely and reasonably priced. I had the Gnocchi and it was nice (not the... More

I've eaten at Lucetta a few times and have enjoyed it. It's a small little restaurant, the staff are friendly and i've mostly been happy with the food - except for today. I ordered the gnocchi (my favourite pasta) and it was really disappointing as it was hard and chewy, and the pieces were large. Paid $20 and got the... More

As some people mentioned before, this is not exactly the classic Italian cuisine. For example, the thin pizza crust was so dry that it was breaking into pieces like a cracker. But if you can get over the "italian" part out of it, it's a pretty good place. C'mon, there are thousands ways to prepare a pizza and they use... More

Picturesque venue with out door seating and cosy in door seating. Wait staff were a bit shambolic and then accentuated it by long winded explanations. I thought he had taken your order because I was getting drinks for another table and we have a few less staff on today...... I'm like stop with all the words and negative stressful energy.... More

The staff is nice, but I feel like I should share my experience. I couldn't spot an Italian within a mile of that place. Unfortunately, I don't think anyone on staff has any concept of the flavors that go into the Italian kitchen. If you don't know either, chances are you might like it. But if you do, don't be...

When non Italian folk open an Italian restaurant, without any knowledge, taste or care for what and how to make REAL italian food, you get Lucetta. I (almost) have no word!!! Except these to save anyone from wasting their time or money. If you dont care for italian food but want pasta or pizza, go there, otherwise if you want... More

The food was good; the service was excellent. It is a quiet place, and the service is fast and friendly. Would go back again.

Just had lunch today. Had always had the lunch special and house wine. Error. One of the best priced wine lists. Get the last of 2012 Rockford full bottle or the whalebone. Great service, great wine then great food. A seriously quiet achiever in the busy Sydney lunch market. First rate. Ed
