Reviews

Very good food, nice size portions and very affordable prices. We tried a lot of the daily specials, like the Burrata cheese with grilled vegetables appetizer, and the grilled calamari and Portuguese octopus entree. Nice wine list and friendly, professional service. Did I mention not to skip the desserts? The banana cream pie and lim... 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

I order from this restaurant via UberEATS & the food & portions were good. My only complaint is the Clams Possillipo was listed as "spicy" but I found it to be a bit salty. The Tortellini soup was good as well as the Shrimp, Mussels, & Clams Fra Diavolo.

Birthday Dinner
My sisters and nieces went out to Trattoria Lucia for dinner on Sunday. We were a group of ten. The dinner was excellent. They've got a prefix menu which is a great deal. Surprisingly there are quite a few choices on this special menu. Since we had catered there at Christmas, they also threw in an extra course of their specialty past... read more

I don't come here often but whenever I do I regret not coming back sooner!! Food is delicious. Everything is fresh, that nonna homemade deliciousness.

Ordered delivery on Christmas, and for the most part it was good, but expensive for the quality we got. The shrimp scampi over rice was just jumbo shrimp on top of rice, which was excellently made, but it was a plain dish for $20. The T-bone steak was smothered with onions on top, which was somewhat overwhelming. However, it was cook... read more
