Great traditional Italian food and wine by the bottles in all prices. The restaurant is divided into two sections and they were able to put a table in for all 12 of us to sit together..The staff was very efficient. Everyone loved the food!

A regular stop for us when we are in Newport. The spinach app and the sauteed broccoli are most enjoyable. The Filet of Sole Arancia are a home run every time. Put this place on your busket list. You won't be disappointed.

I came here on a Saturday night with my family. Food was delicious, service was really good, and the waitress was very friendly.

We found this restaurant almost next door to our hotel and the menu looked very appealing - authentic trattoria cuisine. The external appearance looked a little tired, but we felt confident that the experience would exceed this, not least because we had read the other Trip Advisor reviews. Unfortunately we were wrong. The internal decor was depressing and old fashioned.... More

Excellent tasting dishes for both my wife and I. I hand a seafood pasta dish. It was cooked to perfection. My wife had a chicken/eggplant dish, it too was fantastic.

There is no lack of Italian cuisine in Newport. I've seen it all. Lucia's is one of two worth going to. Excellent from appetizers to desserts. Lucia the owner herself is always there. All dishes are superb and an atmosphere of a small family run restaurant is very cozy.

We stopped in to Lucia's for lunch and enjoyed an excellent garlic and oil pasta with crushed red pepper. The pasta was cooked perfectly and the oil/garlic sauce was light without being drowned in oil. It was just right for lunch. Service was friendly and the wait for our food was not unreasonable given the full house. There is a... More

Nice Italian restaurant right in downtown Newport. Prices good and pizza was great with tomato's, goatcheese, mushrooms, red onion (Pizza Veggi-snella). My son got potato dumplings. It was called Gnocchio Rosa. Delicious. Service was excellent
