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 quite Italian restaurant. We had the ravioli. Both the mushroom and the lobster / shrimp stuffed ravioli were excellent. Good service.

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

The food was very good, the service was OK. Our waiter came over to take our food order before asking for a drink order. I really don't like when I have to ask if we can order drinks first. Seemed like AC was not working. It was very warm and stuffy.

Thank MaD64
