We went to this restaurant on a Wednesday night, and we read horrific reviews about people being turned away because they were wearing thongs. So my partner and I packed closed shoes just for dinner, to find everybody in thongs..
We sat right next to the beach, and everything about the restaurant was beautiful. Because it is outdoors, we found it a little hot, sitting outside for dinner. There were also many families with young children, not that it was an issue personally.
The service was impeccable, and our waiter was top notch! Very knowledgable.
The menu was a slight hit and miss. The tuna special was nothing special, and it was difficult identifying the clams in the clam spaghetti. The beef carpaccio and bocconcini for entree (yes we were greedy and ordered 3 entrees between 2 people) were good (not excellent) and the main of duck special was decent.
Would I go to la lucciola again? Absolutely! It's worth the experience, and the beach and sunset was worth it!
