Came here for dinner once and had the most interesting experience. We got caught in the tail end of a new years eve party being hosted here, and the server made us a table in the middle of an emptying dance floor with a single guy who was dancing his heart out from the last event. It was too funny and entertaining to be upset about. ... read more

To start, the food is Italian comfort food. Saucy, creamy, garlicky goodness. Our server was very efficient and knowledgeable about the menu as well as the specials. The owners were very in touch with what goes on in the restaurant. Will definitely come back here again!

We came here for dinner last night and it was superb. Service was excellent and the food was delicious. What was really nice was the personalized attention our server Billy gave us.

Came here for Mother's Day. Expected a busy evening. We were given complementary drinks due to the long wait time even with having a reservation. My only issue was with the hostess who was clueless she would say she's coming back in 5 minutes then walk right past you. Good price $40 for appetizer, pasta, entree and dessert. Food was ... read more

New Menu with Higher Prices
This popular local spot continues to please with excellent food. A new menu removes some favorites but the chef is often willing to work "off menu". The revised prices are relatively steep for this neighborhood but portions are large so consider sharing for a fee but it includes an extra salad so you will feel both budget and calorie ... read more

Excellent food done in generous portions. Service was amazing. Karen the hostess came over and greeted us with her very warm smile and sexy inked legs. She also told us the daily specials. Soon after, our server Matt arrived and took great care of us. We tried the roasted cauliflower appetizer which was prepared in a buffalo sauce.

Food excellent. Service was minimal & inattentive. We were a group of 8 & requested separate checks. The server told us they don't do that but we could review the bill ourselves & indicate what amount to charge to the individual cards. We did so. After a reasonable time, I asked the server what the problem was since he didn't return ... read more

I am fan of Trattoria Lucia, good food at reasonable prices.  Their menu is extensive, with a couple of entrees made just a little bit differently that makes them standout in a good way.  Their appetizers are very good, and there is always a daily special that is interesting.  My only criticism of Trattoria Lucia is that the lighting ... read more

Ordered delivery on Christmas, and for the most part it was good, but expensive for the quality we got.

The T-bone steak was smothered with onions on top, which was somewhat overwhelming. However, it was cook ... read more
