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.

    Pre theatre dinner with my sister. We were seated on the heated outdoor terrace which was warm,comfortable, airy and quiet. We were seated at a high table with stools which despite our reservations about stools was a great option as this is a much calmer area than the main body of the restaurant which is fairly noisy. Gorgeous food with good quality ingredients. Attentive service . Would happily revisit again.

    Food and service was brilliant, but we would be more than happy to be informed that the table is available for only 1.5 hour at the beginning. We had our anniversary that day and felt we were told rather abruptly that we needed to leave restaurant as they need to get the table back...

    The food was fine but the major problem was the intention to push us quickly through the service as the kitchen would be under pressure from covers after our booking 1. We were not offered pre drinks 2. As the starter was taken away, the second course turned up 3. The waitress ensured our wine was topped up 4. When we explained to the manager as we were finishing our main course that we were being pushed through, he laughed and said what would you like for desert So, we had completed both starter and main course in under 35 mins!! We got out after 60 mins only because they didn’t attend to the bill for 10 mins and then then the manager wanted to explain he didn’t mean what he had said earlier!! We all appreciate the food is important but equally the quality of the service is vital to the overall dining experience. On that basis our visit to Glovers Alley the night before was a resounding Michelin experience - attentive service and superb dishes over 2 hours. This was no more than an up market Italian restaurant with a supercilious attitude to their diners so hugely disappointing

    Love the venue. Love the food. But service has notions! Told we had to leave! In 15 mins! As I was on my second last slice of pizza. Quite taken aback. Complained about this and was told dining was for a 1hr45 min slot! Yet our 15 min notice was 30 mins before. Quickly ate last slice and skipped desert. Paid and left with the rest of our wine and water to have at home!! Felt better when the table beside us said they had been given notice to leave after one hour!?! Barely enough time to eat. Let alone enjoy.

    We were heading to the Leinster match at 8pm. Table booked for 6pm Greeted by friendly smiling staff as usual. I had a draft beer and my wife a G &T and some sparking water. We were left to relax into our evening and to decide on the menu. We shared a burrata starter and went with lasagna for me and Milano chicken for my wife. The food was excellent as always, correctly portioned and very enjoyable. A great way to start our evening, culminating in a great win for Leinster.
