Great food and wonderful ownership deeply involved in the business. Pizzas are outstanding! Now called The Local Eatery.

Thanks for your review - we are glad you loved the pizza. There is a Tripadvisor page for The Local Eatery. If you get a chance a review on that one would be great - if not we will hopefully see you the next time you are in Sydney! Thanks Mick More

Having moved into the area recently, we were delighted to find this place just two doors away. It's just been renamed as 'The local Eatery" but that won't change the fact it offers some of the best Gluten free Pizza's we have ever eaten. It's small and not over formal, but the food is great and the staff are very... More

Glad you love the Gluten Free pizza and incase you were not aware 90% of our main meals are also either GF or can be adapted to become GF. We have renamed and moved away from the Italian with a lot more Australian influenced ingredients. Keep an eye on The Local Eaterys facebook or tripadvisor pages for photos of the... More

We were in a large group of work friends looking for place to dine on a Friday night night of a very busy pre-Christmas Sydney. Walking along Kent Street we spotted Lucetta, it just looked so inviting that we enquires as to whether they could take a group of 12 without a booking. A big challenge Even though they had... More

A very regular lunch spot for me. The $15.80 lunch special is great value with a full size pizza (or pasta) and a glass of wine (or beer). Service is always friendly and meal always served with complimentary water and condiments to suit. It will continue to be a regular spot for me.

Impromptu find at around 7.30pm. Busy vibe, and friendly staff (plus hunger and a requirement for a 'comfort break') got our attention. Service was a little haphazard to start, but certainly nothing other than just a busy spell which is great to see. Table swiftly set up and wine choices explained and offered.great selection of wines, all available by glass... More

We were staying at the shangri la and keen for pizza. The Lucetta is a short walk under the highway to a lovely high end condo neighbourhood. Pizza and ingredients were fresh and thin crust. Caprese salad simple but very fresh. Great selection of wine by the glass. Service friendly and efficient.

The staff were so welcoming and lovely. We were on our way to a restaurant we found online when we came across Lucetta. The menu sounded nice so we decided to go in. My partner ordered the lamb shoulder which he really enjoyed and myself the chicken lucetta with vegetables. The vegetables were cooked perfectly with a little crunch just... More

This cute little italian restaurant was only a few doors down from where we stayed so it was very convenient. It was staffed by some of the friendliest people we had met and nothing was too much trouble.

How can so many people rate this restaurant as a 4 is a mystery. The food is tasteless. All the plates I had (calamars and spaghetti carbonara) were just tasteless. This cannot be just a coincidence. This makes tripadvisor reviews unreliable. If this was Italian food, there would be no Italian restaurants on this planet!
