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

My husband and went here for supper. Calamari was good. A bit on the oily side, but still good. Margarita Pizza was great! Neopolitan style, crispy brown crust. Yumm! My husband ordered the pesto. Noodles were a bit al dente, and I agreed. Sauce was good, but difficult to get past the undercooked noodles.

We had the pleasure of having dinner here in June when we wondered down from the Langham where we were staying. The food was delicious and the staff very friendly. My husband loved his veggie pizza and my pasta was great also.

We dined at this restaurant anticipating a nice dinner with a friend from overseas. After searching for some decent Italian restaurants near circular quay, we decided based on the starred reviews that this would be a nice, decent restaurant to bring our friend. Unfortunately we were extremely disappointed by the poor quality food. We ordered garlic bread for our entree... More

This restaurant is so cute, it has lovely staff and it has a great vibe with lots of locals... However, the food missed the mark, and it's hard to explain why! I suppose, to be blunt, the flavours aren't there... The pizza crust is pale and brittle, for example. This is the kind of place that you desperately want to... More
