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.

Excellent Italian Restuarant! The food is authentic and fabulous. Our last meal out before Dublin lockdown and it was like the last supper! It was a great choice.. We will be back many many times in the future!

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!

Food was fantastic as was the wine. Portions very generous too but still managed to fit in 3 courses as couldn't resist Tiramisu for dessert.
Service was great and all safety measures in place. Lovely setting. Will definitely return.

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.

Would 10/10 recommend. Some of the best customer service in Dublin! Food and ambiance was brilliant and the wine selection was some of the best served in any of the Italian restaurants in the city! So when in doubt head here, you wot regret it.

Loved the restaurant but found the starters very expensive , the pizzas are amazing and next time I will just have pizza!
As the restaurant is Italian I would have liked a wider choice of pasta dishes.
Excellent adherence to Covid19 regulations

Fantastic restaurant which is tucked away in a quiet part of Dublin. Unique in that it has the dart running directly overhead which creates a intimate space beneath. Food was great and portion size perfect. Staff were attentive and welcoming and answered any queries regarding items on the menu. Wouldn't hesistate to recommend.

Wonderful restaurant, food wine excellent. Portions are small and a bit pricey.
Location is right under the DART train, so a bit loud inside. I will return!

Lovely restaurant with great atmosphere despite the pandemic and some awful weather!
The menu is quite varied with some refreshing choices.
The restaurant is charming with modern decor but the quaintness of being under the railway so nice low ceilings and even the occasional train noise overhead which we found quite novel. A lovely place for an intimate date or smaller group 👌🏻

We were seated at a 6 person high table and seated to the far right. There was two customers arrived and were seated at the opposite end of the table.

I don’t think this was appropriate given current health guidelines. We didn’t have particular issue with it but at the same time I could entirely understand if someone else did.
