Got there at 920 p.m. very accepting and courteous, we ordered fairly quickly to be respectful. We ordered spaghetti bolangnase with meatballs (daughter) original gyro with Greek salad (son) and baked ziti, also ordered bruschetta cheese bread. I sampled it all, THE BEST food that's ever hit my taste buds. I don't even know why there is an olive garden... More

This mostly Greek (with a little Italian) restaurant offered good food at good prices in the nicest setting we found in the Dakotas. Nice setting inside; the exterior, esp. with current construction, would not attract. But go on in! Food and service was really good. And it is within walking distance of the many motels along that road.

I thought that Santa Lucia was more of a fast food greek gyro type of place and even though it's been around for a long time this was the first time we'd tried it. On walking in, I LOVED it. The decor was clean and modern with a splash of rustic. The menu is pretty varied, Greek, Mediterranean, and Italian... More

Wasn't sure when i walked in. Nobody was there. It was early, and snowing, and Tuesday but i was warmly greeted and lead to a booth. the waiter quickly brought fresh, hot grilled garlic toast. He described the specials and pointed out the highlights of the regular menu. I went for the Chicken Confer, one of the specials. The chicken... More

I rediscovered Santa Lucia last night and was delighted with the service (Jarred was our server), the food, which was delicious and HOT and the ambiance, which was elegant and serene. We try to frequent non chain restaurants and this a gem in the middle of all those chains.

We ventured off the I-29 and by accident, found Santa Lucia!! We are so glad that we did! The food and service are awesome!! There were a few large parties and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. The fried ravioli for an appetizer, gyros, and baklava were incredible!! I can't wait to go back and eat there again when I... More

Six of our group ate here after the NDSU football game. We all ordered either soup or salad before the meal, wine and a different main course. We all shared desserts. All the food was great and our waiter (Eric) was wonderful. The restaurant was not crowded so it made for great conversation. I definitely will be back.

You can smell the good food before you ever enter the building. This is great pasta. My husband had the lasagna and I had the lobster and shrimp alfredo. It was wonderful. The portions were very large also. I would definitely eat here again.

My husband and I started with the Saginaki (flaming cheese). Let me say first, we have had this many times in other places. This rendition was fried and Luke warm. Definitely a large portion but not good enough to take more than one bight. Moving on, I ordered the vegetable dish. The dolmas were good but one had a huge... More
