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.

    Lucio’s just gets better and better. Service is friendly and attentive. Food is exceptional. We had a cured scallop starter which was part of a dish which tasted like spring turning into summer, so beautifully fresh. The gambas is incredible. The pork dish so moist it doesn’t taste like any pork I’ve had before, we were taught that it’s because the pigs are fed olives that they don’t have to over cook the pork hence the flavour. The bread dishes are superb, olives are so so good. After a few minutes being here it feels like you’re on holiday abroad. We’re so lucky to have this restaurant on our doorstep.

    Classic Italian food, beautifully cooked and seasoned. I would give it a higher rating but the rushed service spoiled our meal. Our waitress didn’t tell us about the specials, we only heard them on the next table after we’d ordered. My wife ordered a cocktail and specifically asked if she had time to enjoy it before her starter. The cocktail arrived and a minute later so did the starter. However, the linguini with wild boar ragu was one of the best I’ve tasted. Probably not expensive by Dublin standards but still pricey for an Italian meal.

    Very good food Meatball, bruschetta starters followed by monkfish and pork mains However the service was average and cocktails were poorly timed coming with the first course Very crowded room with high noise level took from the ambiance in my opinion Bill was about what I expected

    We think that the menu choices are a little bit limited and pricey although everything we had was freshly made We had a small child with us but they do not offer any child menu so the pizza at €18 was too large and too expensive for a 6year old child All the staff were friendly

    I can not say enough positive things about this restaurant. Fabulous exciting menu with a range of food that would please everyone's tastes - it is like a classic hidden gem trattoria that you would find in Italy, except you have a Michelin pedigreed owner chief in Ross Lewis producing amazing food which is fairly priced

    Excellent food and the wine recommendation was unbelievable. You can’t miss the giant prawns, they were stunning. We would also like to thank the waiters who told us the doors of the show we were going to would shut very soon, if we didn’t leave when they told us to we would have missed the show. We’re very grateful!

    Being honest was not as good an experience as previously. Has got much more expensive and we didn't feel the quality of the ingredients in the dishes matched the prices charged. I hate leaving a restaurant feeling that I could have done much better myself. Unfortunately, this seems to be the case for the majority of meals out recently, left feeling that it wasn't worth the prices charged. Standards have dropped with a corresponding increase in prices, which is completely unjustified for what is served up.

    U off the bone and melted in the mouth. Sublime. We were there at 5 for a pre-theatre dinner, the restaurant was heaving no doubt with revellers on a similar mission. However, it felt more like an occasion dinner rather than a pit stop on the way to the theatre. We will be back.
