Lucias really has three restaurants in a row on 31st in Uptown: fine dining, romantic bar and a carry out- cafe. Dependably wonderful and I've been there 2-3 times a week for 4 years. Neighbors will walk down the street for repeat evenings enjoying the organic, locally raised/grown foods. Way ahead of it's time, this restaurant is 30 years old!... More

Lucia is hands-down our favorite place for date night. It's nothing about the decor or the ambiance. It's a European-flavored bistro with the limited, fresh and local kind of menu you would expect to go with that. That's where the fun starts. They won't have the great thing you had last time (in a different season) and you might not... More

Restaurant Week brought me to Lucia's dine-in space for the first time. Terrific waitstaff, excellent wine, great selections for restaurant week and an overall fantastic experience. We had the mussels with jalapeño (perfect amount of heat), steak, salmon (great crispy skin) and a lovely raspberry almond crostata that was light on the almond taste but summery and delicious nonetheless. We... More

Lucia's has been serving local food with a different menu every week 31 years. It is a winning formula. Flowers on the table are a nice touch, as are larger bouquets on various counters. The kitchen was very accommodating and split our salads for us. The salads were fresh, lightly dressed, and delightful. We each had one of the four... More

A great spot for any meal. They have beautiful and tasty food and drink. I love going for wine and a cheese plate. Their baked good and tea are also great in the morning or a midday snack.

My girlfriends and I ate dinner here to celebrate a birthday. The ahi was amazing and all the food was delicious and fresh. I've heard they change the menu weekly, so I will definitely be going back.

For such an expensive outing, I expected more flavor. The tapanades with thick toast were delicious, as were the sweet endings - a lemon tart and a warm strawberry cobbler, but the main dishes disappointed. The pasta with duck confit was billed as covatelli but looked and tasted more like gnocchi. Too doughy for the diner's palate. The chicken with... More

I love the small menu, the wine list is good, and the ambiance is so perfect. Quaint restaurants are my jam! I love the royal blue pops of color. This place is wonderful!

I've been coming here since the year it opened and continue to appreciate this restaurant. I came for dinner last night and a few things seemed off to me. I ordered wine and my partner ordered a cocktail. The wine came quickly but it took a long time for the cocktail to come. In the past they had a couple... More

I've not been to Lucia's in about 5 years and I was concerned that they had lost the formula when Lucia sold this restaurant. But I was very happy to experience a near perfect dinner with near perfect service. I really can't say anything wrong or bad about our meal or experience. If you live in the Twin Cities and... More
