Real homemade food!

Great homemade style Italian food at very reasonable prices. Love the original retro décor, don't change it! Great for a quick bite or coffee while visiting the famous Adelaide Central Markets!

Lucia's is a very casual European style care at the Central Markets. If you walk around the peripheral of all the stalls you will come across the cafe. (It is near the walkway or stairs to the toilets). There are tables outside on the walkway or inside the cafe but it is very busy so you may have to wait... More

Every week when we shop at the Central Market we call into Lucia's for coffee and Tigeladas topped with seasonal fruit. A work colleague put me onto this combo 5 or 6 years ago and we've never looked back! You'll see mounds of "Tiges" piled up behind the counter. They don't look like French patisseries but taste great with the... More

We came back after a year away from Adelaide and after shopping in the Central Market, we returned to Lucia for our cup of coffee. I had a flat white and it tasted smooth and coffee content exactly as it should be. A wow wow factor came when we had the Pear Tart! The tart was very light and fluffy,... More

Looking at the menu there were quite a few breakfast/ lunch options and the prices were very reasonable. We ordered our food and drinks at the counter. Coffees came out in about 10 minutes and everyone... More

The restaurant was crowded and we had to wait for a seat for a short time but the lovely meal was worth the wait. The choice of food was good, all meals were freshly cooked, the pizza and spaghetti dishes that we ordered were delicious and the portions of food were large. We had a very enjoyable meal there with... More

It's always crowded but seats become available quite quickly and the staff will assist. The coffee is excellent every time. The menu is small but the food is always delicious, my favourites are the minestrone soup and the tuna salad. Lucia's is an institution in the Adelaide market, a place to be seen, and to enjoy watching all the shoppers... More
