Great location on quaint cobblestone street, this is a great find. Cozy and tastefully decorated. Staff is friendly and service is quick. Menu is well thought out and has a nice selection. Hard to decide what to order. Entrees are great and the specialty pizza selection is creative. Portions are perfect, so you can order an appetizer and dinner, enjoy... More

I'm really fickle when it comes to Italian cuisine - bar none Lucia's is authentic Italian - we eat dinner there every summer when we are in town. Highly recommend! The atmosphere is quaint and not stuffy - the staff is highly attentive and friendly - you you love great tasting Italian cuisine this is the place!

We were stuck for a place to eat as most of the touristy places had hours of wait time. We stumbled across this place and was thoroughly surprised with the food. The restaurant is small, but their food was definitely worth the visit. I would definitely recommend this restaurant who is looking for a quiet, romantic, little spot to eat!

What a great place on Thames St. in Newport. The daytime (lunch) is just perfect for a full meal, one course or just pizza. The food preparation is wonderful, just like in Italy ( I should know as I lived there for 4 decades.). Service is very good, prices are right and modest and selections varied. The evening meals are... More

At the end of a very busy day touring we happened to notice a sign on the back of a building face our parking lot for Luciano's. We had a meal earlier in the day and were looking for something light. We went into Luciano's and found the staff to be extremely friendly and helpful. Ordered a salad and a... More

We dined at Lucia's last month (I believe it was Memorial Day) and were able to sit right down. We chose the window seat so we could enjoy the view while sipping a glass of wine. I ordered the penne, which was very delicious. Our waiter was fun to chat with and we were quite happy with our meal and... More

Very small, family run restaurant. Small but varied menu. Delicious food and pleasant service. The veal was excellent and the pasta with cream and prosciutto was nicely done. Very nice wine list for a small restaurant. Excellent location right downtown. Ask for the table in front of the window.

From the time we entered the door, to the time we exited the door the wait staff always delivered a smile. Food was great, and the wine selection was pretty good for a small restaurant. But the food and service was spot on. I would highly recommend this place if you are in the mood for some fine Italian food.

Thank Cecchi24
