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.

Unsatisfied with my experience. I had specifically requested to be beside a table of my friends, which was ignored and subsequently denied upon arrival. we were told that the empty table beside us was unavailable and could not be exchanged for the table we had booked. However, this was untrue. The menu was very limited and extremely overpriced, and some items were left absent from the menu, which would’ve been nice to know before. Overall, will not be returning.

Really lovely food, although over priced, especially main courses. The pizzas were off the menu and this would have been good to know in advance.
The atmosphere was very nice, lovely seating and beautiful scent of fresh herds decorated each table. The staff we had were very pushy with sales which I find quite off-putting - constantly trying to push us to order more. I ordered a cocktail to start and it was missing an ingredient which I was unaware of but made the cocktail not very pleasant to drink - 15mins later when I had drank half the drink the staff member appeared with the missing ingredient for me to add myself and told me she had forgotten it. I have no issue with a mistake but after 15mins and with half my cocktail gone I think it would be good service to just make a fresh one. When the bill came I was charged for a two person cocktail that wasn't even on the menu - substantially more money than the messed up cocktail I had ordered. The bill was corrected once I pointed this out.
Overall I did love the atmosphere and would return but in the hope that I would have less pushy sales staff

Really nice meal in Osteria Lucio including the best pizza I've ever had in Dublin. All the dishes were very good and the staff recommended a bottle of red to us that was super. Only disappointment was the wagyu beef which was a little dry, but still tasty. Would definitely recommend, thoroughly enjoyed it.

For what we ordered, I thought it was a bit expensive. The noise level from within the restaurant was moderate, but the DART trains overhead made it too loud at times. Overall, though, the food was outstanding, the staff was friendly and professional, and we had a lovely meal.

Personal touches from very friendly staff (both of us forgot our glasses e.g. but a range available) complemented excellence of the food (starter of caramelized onion tartlet zinging with flavour; delicious wagyu beef pasta with strong flavours balanced with delicate flavours of steamed cod: clearly, a chef of real ability). A complimentary dessert for the birthday girl topped off a superb meal - but the glass of wine "on the house" spoke volumes for looking after customers. First visit ... but definitely not last!

Fantastic , high quality food.
Meat plate with pickled veg , cheese and pizza bread is unreal !
We also had squid ink pasta that was nice and perfect if you craving sea food . Apis pizza is fab too , spicy with hint of honey .
The ambiance is very chilled, loved the music selection .
Few glasses of house red , regret I didn't get a bottle because is was beautiful too. Have nothing bad to say . Can't wait to be back.
