Description

"Food and art for me is like the air that I breathe," says Lucio Galletto OAM. "The combination of great food, great service and great art on the walls is, in my view, one of the best dining experiences you can imagine." Lucio's is open five days a week, Tuesday to Saturday for lunch and dinner with a focus on Northern Italian cuisine, fresh pasta and modern touches to classic dishes.
