... dinner experiences I had in Dallas. I was there four times over the length of my assignment (10 months) and was pleasantly surprised. Small, less than 40 covers, personable, and nicely served. Small but strong wine list and the food is fine dining. I understand why they can book reservations a month in advance... but you can get a... More

Our food, service, the atmosphere; everything was more than we expected!! Alex was our server and did an incredible job not only serving us, but with the descriptions of all of the dishes. I had heard about Lucia thru a gal that i met on a plane. We had been trying to get there forever, and it just never worked... More

I can't say enough great things about this restaurant. The food is always amazing and the atmosphere is among the more unique spots in Dallas. The service is attentive but not aggressive. Make sure to get a reservation far in advance if you know you'll be in town. It needs to be done far in advance because of the small... More

I was sitting down to dinner last minute with a girlfriend of mine. I was expecting complete Italian cuisine as the menu wasn't very big and not much to chose from. Everything seemed to be Italian but with an American style flare. Cream corn and others are good but not true Italian. For the price I was not impressed at... More

Went to Lucia last night and had another great meal, however, there seems to be a slipping from previous times. The starter courses were as usual just awesome, but the mains were a bit disappointing this time. The corn salad was superb, really surprised us and the pasta and gnocchi dishes were very tasty. We ordered the octopus and hanger... More

We went here for our anniversary and found it to be a wonderful place. It has a beautifully romantic feel to it although it is not the quietest place. It has the feel and experience of what you see in real Italian restaurants on those travel shows. The food is stellar. It is honestly the best Italian we have ever... More

My husband and I are self confessed foodies and have visited Lucia several times since it's opening a few years ago. It is usually good but there are more consistent restaurants in Dallas. It seems like it used to be just fantastic and has now gone down a level. The pasta is always amazing and fresh. The service is good.... More

Yes, we booked way in advance to get a table on a Saturday. Our meal was fantastic as was the service. We ordered several plates to split and each dish was flavorful and unique.

My husband lived in Italy for 13 years and is a food snob. We have been on a quest to find a restaurant that serves authentic Italian food since moving here in 1998. We stumbled upon this place during a business trip and are happy to report our quest for authentic Italian is over. Delicious!!!!

Everything was great, the service, the food and the ambiance. It is very small and is located in a very quaint neighborhood. It was a true "foodie " experience.
