We ate at Lucia last evening, and this was not the first time. The food was excellent, as always, and the surroundings are pleasant. But they were playing the background music too loudly, and it was not soothing music. I twice requested that they lower it, and the waitress said she would, but no substantial change took place. It made for a quite unpleasant experience for us, and I will not return there again unless they change their policy. To my mind, quality restaurants either play soothing music quietly in the background or not at all. This was neither.

Six of us had a really nice evening in this elegant little place in the middle of New Milford.. The food was northern Italian style, served with style. A decent wine list exists, and it has a tiny bar.. You can have a nice meal here with friends or a special someone.

Small & cozy. Food is delicious. Any meal can have substitutions. The service was average. There were 3 girls waiting tables but only ONE went to EVERY table to take orders. Needless to say it took to long to get the drink & food orders.

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.
