“a shining gem to be discovered”
Reviewed April 1, 2012

It was wonderful to find such a unique resteraunt, i loved the outdoor setting and dappled shade under the trees. Lucciola is very atmospheric and a fine place to relax, i felt very well looked after and attended to. The food is of very high quality and great value for money. The ethos of the place appeals to me, I can see that the owners are making a reall effort to create a place that supports local agriculture, local artists and musicians and gives locals and toursits a great night out. I am looking forward to coming to some gigs here in the future.

congratulations on creating a unique resteraunt and bar

“What a wonderful restaurant”
Reviewed July 23, 2011

A year or so ago, my boyfriend and I were staying in Casa Lucia, a collection of beautiful cottages a short walk from the Lucciola. It came highly recommended by Valerie, the owner of Casa Lucia and so we ended up eating here many, many times. In fact, we so liked the setting, atmosphere, food and the owners, Daphne and Tom, we decided to hold our wedding here in June 2011. It could not have been more perfect. Daphne and Tom were amazing to work with. We loved the way the venue looked, how much care and attention had been put into all the small details. We loved the food - do not go without having the halloumi towers or the chicken pie - without doubt the best pie I have ever tasted. And we loved the music - both at our wedding and on previous nights where bands had been playing. This is such a brilliant find. A slightly out of the way restaurant that isn't packed with tourists, but instead, is full of locals (always a good sign) and holidaymakers who want something a little different - beautifully prepared Greek food with a twist. I could not recommend this place more highly.

“For somewhere quite different, a hidden gem serving home grown organic produce.”
Reviewed June 29, 2011

Lucciola is well hidden, It is situated approx 1 mile from Tzavros, just off the main road to Paleokastritsa, on the left behind a Red Minimarket, and it is certainly worth the search!!
The menu has a good mix of meat and vegetarian choices mainly organic and free range. Some of the starter portions were quite large and could easily be a main course. For example the Tortillas Lucciola, quite delicious (mascarpone, fig and coriander, and a dressing of yogurt, coriander and fennel) came as four pieces which we shared between three along with the figs wrapped in bacon. The menu is quite modern and different from most other Corfu eateries, no Taramasalata, Taziki or chips here!! but perhaps a traditional main course Greek dish or two would really enhance the experience. The tables are set in the largish tiered garden which has numerous lanterns for lighting, and some evenings there is live music playing. On Thursday afternoons you can book to attend a Greek cooking class, and then eat what has been prepared. The week we were there the owners mother was demonstrating stuffed courgettes, meat or vegetarian, with an egg and lemon sauce. She also showed different ways to use the courgette flowers, which may also be cooked!! and a light lemon dessert. It was a wonderful experience and one I would certainly repeat. We are frequent visitors to Corfu, but this was our first visit to Lucciola Bio Bistro, but it most certainly won't be our last!!

“Very pleasant place”
Reviewed June 14, 2011

Lucciola in Corfu is a lovely restaurant -Bistro outside Corfu town, situated in a fabulous outside space over shaded by trees and nature.
Going there as a family, we sat down to enjoy our meal while our kids had plenty of space to play and run around!
We highly recommend the food as there was a variety of organic meat and veggie dishes!
The staff and owners were very welcoming and attentive :)
