Great evening of dinner and fellowship with some friends. The food was outstanding and serve was good as well. Location is very convenient to MSG and would recommend it highly.

Awesome staff, awesome Italian food, awesome atmosphere! A bit expensive but loved the experience. Kind of wished we had this experience for our last night here.

“Great Spot Right by Penn Station”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

What a location! Lugo is right across the street from the 8th Avenue Penn Station exit, just past Annie's Pretzels and the big Amtrak train announcement board up the escalator and across the street. As a frequent Amtrak traveler into NYC, we eat here often while waiting for the train heading home and are never disappointed either when grabbing a quick or a full dinner. The only possible complaint about Lugo would be the noise level when crowded, but really folks, its Penn Station and a fun restaurant with good food so get over it!

The salads are great as they should be in any Italian restaurant and the apps are just as good. I always get a salad, either the Tricolore or Misticanza, depending upon what's on the menu seasonally, and an appetizer such as the Tuna Tartare, Ordering a selection of the Salumeria (gourmet Italian cheeses) and Assaggini (grilled/roasted veggies) for the table to share is always a hit as well as any of the Antipasti Caldi (hot appetizers). For mains the scallops, branzino and scallops are always wonderful and the gentlemen always rave about the pizza, especially the mushroom and the braised short ribs.

You cannot do better in or around Penn Station and Lugo would be worth trying even if it were not just steps away from Penn Station.

“After work spot”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

My third time there tonight. Food always excellent. Service on the money. My only criticism is the noise level. Very hard to have a conversation. Great for after work,bar food and socializing, not the place for a romantic dinner. Each visit, my dinner was excellent. The sparkling water is refreshing,the bread is heavenly.
