Lunch at Lucia was quite nice - the panini nothing special but a good pear salad. The wait staff was efficient and thankfully did not pull our plates away the minute one of us set down a fork. We were not rushed or repeatedly questioned as to our liking our meal. The room is quiet, no noisy music, and the overall experience was most pleasant.

This is one of my all time favorite restaurants. I usually go Lucia's with friends and no one has ever had a complaint about anything that they have ordered. The food, ambiance, and service are excellent. Plan ahead, however, and make reservations. When other restaurants are almost empty, Lucia's is always full. They often run specials that include a free movie ticket for the theater across the street...what a perfect combo.

First let me start off, I write restaurant reviews in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. We go out dining quite often. My Biz partner Nicola Purigini, who is from the old country( Italy) said he heard about this establishment via some real good, back home Italian friends. They said it was as good as moms home cooking but with a twist. We owed a dinner to 4 of our good friends that always invite us over for lunches and supper. These people also are from Italy. One in particular WILL NOT eat out at a restaurant, super picky. Sure he will have bread and cheese with wine if forced to go. He went to make his wife happy. I won't go into the tiny details of what each person ate, for one simple reason. EVERYTHING was out of this world. We walked in as 8 skeptical Italians, with almost a chip on our shoulder. And walked out hugging and kissing the owner Tony. Even Donato Orsini ate everything on his plate. A quick review of some of our eats were, Tripa, chicken liver with caramelized onions, Ravioli stuffed with veal oso bucco, monster veal chop, chapino, etc... For full disclosure, Chef & owner Tony knew of our arrival via friends of his. But as I looked around, It became apparent that everybody had that stuffed to the gills kinda look, but also a satisfied grin to go with it. we were pleased to see everyone at Lucias is treated like family. Keep in mind its a small place, we had 8 to our party, a little tight but well worth the trip. Apps, main course, salad and lots of wine ran us with a 20% Tip $575 USD. Parting comments "The best Italian dining I have had so far"

Always a treat. Excellent food, great service and an environment that cannot be matched in the Bank Street area. Go to Lucia, you will not be disappointed!
