"We went here for restaurant week expecting a great italian dinner and were disappointed. The ravioli were poorly seasoned and barely filled. The seafood paste was also under seasoned and the sauce seemed watered down. The only thing we would return for was the pana cotta, bread, and friendly staff."

"I wrote down on comments it was for a birthday celebration. I guess they didn't see this. I was hoping for a birthday greeting.
Had to ask for water more than once. They were busy, restaurant week. We all enjoyed the food, and will come back.

"Delicious food, well-prepared, with attentive and friendly service. The front room is a little cold and sterile compared to the lovely back room with the warm wall colors and decor, but it was still pleasant."

"We chose to go to A La Lucia because its restaurant week menu looked really interesting, but unfortunately, many of the better items (Oso bucco, rack of veal, grilled shrimp salad) were not on the menu presented to us when we arrived. It felt like a "bait and switch" trap. Rather than leave, we decided to order off the regular menu. My chicken marsala was very good. My husband had the pasta with sausage and peppers and was disappointed. There were no peppers and the sausage was bland."

"We were seated promptly, and we were early 6 PM for our 6:30 reservation. The choice of tables was less desirable than we had hoped: either of two choices, both right at the front door....so very busy with staff and guests coming and going. The 3 course Prix-fixe meal was excellent, ....only the mussels as a first course were less than stellar... bland and not particularly tasty. I would recommend A LA LUCIA again, but would prefer a quieter corner table somewhere for leisurely dining. It's a small space and the tables are somewhat close together. Because of Restaurant Week, it was a crowded night last Saturday....possibly many of the guests were regulars, which is a good sign for a restaurant. All in all, we were most satisfied with the dinner which was served promptly, and the prices were moderate. The selection on the a la carte menu is quite varied and interesting. We might try that experience the next time."

"Service was good, but the food was sub par. I have no idea how it is rated so high. The food was okay, but in Old Town I have no reason to ever go to a restaurant with okay food. There are so many better restaurants within a mile radius of this one."

"Wooden seats could use some padding. Sitting in one got a little uncomfortable after about 45 minutes.
The veal scallipini with prosciutto was very good, but thought the veal was a little too thin and prosciutto a little skimpy.

"We go to this restaurant four or five times a year. It's one of the many in Old Town that we go to. It's our favorite Italian restaurant. But this was the last straw. We had a reservation for an early dinner (5pm) on New Years Eve. I had asked for a booth when making the reservation. They gave us the worst table in the restaurant - next to a closet where I barely had enough room to move my arms. When I asked about another table we were told that we could sit at another table if we vacated it by 6pm. Meanwhile there was only one other couple in the room. When we left only one other group of 4 had come. It was frustrating that we had to sit at that awful table while the restaurant was empty. And it's not the first time this has happened to us. Since we are 2 people they have put us at small tables while booths and other larger tables remain empty (apparently on the hope that someone better will come along) even though we are early diners and the restaurant is very empty. Well that's it. I'm done."

"Made late reservation on New Years Eve for dinner. Got there a few mnutes early and had a nice glass of pinot grigio at their cozy bar, getting hungry as the folks next to us received ther pizza, whch smelled and looked wonderful.
Soon we were led to our table. Also a nice piece of bruschettea to start and an outstanding bread basket, which we enjoyed woth a bit of olive oil. My wife had some delicious burrata and beets appetizer, while i enjoyed the grilled shrim and arulala. We bpth had the grilled rockfish for dnner. It is a special that they have pretty regularly, and while i love their veal and their pastas, I always go for the rckfish when it they offer it. It is so tasty off the grill that I rarely touch the lemon butter it comes with, and my wife loves the fennel that they serve with it.
Great food, good wine and good service everytime we go there."
