Pre/post Theatre
The story of food is the story of friendship. When you combine Irish conviviality with the irrepressible Italian nature, it’s always going to be a good thing. Chefs Ross Lewis and Luciano Tona have been friends through Michelin starred food, and tall tales, for many years. At Osteria Lucio they unite their love of Irish and Italian food with the very best of produce, from both countries.

Great first meal! My partner ordered the braised lamb, which he loved. I tried the bed of peas/purée that it was sitting on, which was perfectly done.

With my dish, the beef tagliatelle chilli Ragu, I asked for it without the chilli on top, as there’s chilli already within the sauce. It was perfect for me, a bit of a kick, but not an overwhelming amount of spice. The beef itself was so tender!

Ordered deserts too... didn’t disappoint one bit! Would recommend the selection of sorbet and the chocolate mousse.

The place itself is in a great spot, just underneath it the dart tracks, up a lane near grand canal dock, which adds to its charm. Indoors is like a romantic cellar, which would be great for a date and outdoors would be lovely for a group of friends.

The service was excellent. So quick and really friendly, which is a huge selling point!... Looking forward to going back

We were a table of 4 and we were hardly aware that there were restrictions as all the staff and the restaurant had things well covered. Best Negronis outside Italy.
Great food. Best Manager 😊

Great food and impeccable service.
The acoustics make conversations in the corner tables reverberate and be a bit too loud. But definitely the overall experience is great!!

Venue was lovely, good quality food, excellent service. Menu was a bit limited and a bit pricey. A pint a beer was almost €8 which seemed excessive.

Really nice meal! Didn't know what to expect or how the restaurant would look/feel with social distancing measures in place - it exceeded my expectations and was very comfortable! Staff were really attentive and friendly! Will definitely be returning!

Booked Osteria Lucio for dinner with friends for my birthday. Nice big table with plenty of space for three coupes to spread out. There was a great ambience despite the restrictions. The same friendly waiter looked after us attentively all evening. Really enjoyed the food, cocktails and evening as a whole. Thank you!

Restaurant have put in measures for hygiene and social distancing - could see screens and tables being cleaned well between uses.
Staff were kind and helpful, but service a little slow as the restaurant was busy. Restricted menu options, food was grand.

Busy but has a relaxed feeling and staff are great to deal with. Eat here a few times a year and food, particularly the pizza, is consistently great. Good wine list and choice of cocktails. Left an item behind and the staff were great in helping me locate it and collect it. Interesting venue with it being located under the bridge too!

Arrived early but still had to wait a few minutes (empty restaurant!) which was a minor issue but all fine in the end. Had a lovely meal with superb bottle of Barolo. I'll be back.
