"Though a bit off the beaten track, that's part of A La Lucia's charm. It truly is a neighborhood gem. Its got a great little/medium sized bar, nice selection of wine and we've had excellent recommendations for wine from them. This evening we met two friends for dinner, meeting in the bar for a glass of wine while we watched the end of an epic Nats game, then moved to a nice booth in the main dining room for a delicious Italian dinner. The salmon with spinach is a favorite, and our service was excellent."

"I liked the price fixed menu. It had so much to offer my date and I go that. Very good value. I'm looking forward to taking my family next they come for a visit. It's not in the heart of Old Town so parking was easy. Wait staff was pleasant and attentive but not annoyingly so. It's pretty quiet in there so I wouldn't feel comfortable bringing my 4 year old nephew but for adults it's fine."

"I chose this restaurant based on its location. What a little gem in the neighborhood. I was there to meet my son and his girlfriend (meeting her for the first time) and the staff took note of this special occasion and helped make it a special evening. On top of that, the food was great...the wine list extensive...the environment special.
I highly recommend this restaurant as a place for not just a special occasion, but for a great night out."

"Ate here years ago and liked it a lot. It had totally changed. The endive salad was tasteless and I never did find the blue cheese that was supposed to be in it. The spaghetti tasted like out of a box not homemade as advertised. And $25 for a fairly small serving of spaghetti with goat cheese, spinach and tomatoes was tasty but outrageously overpriced. The chocolate cake was very good and I liked the servers. My friend's comment when I asked her how her dish was (I don't remember what it was ) was "it's ok" which is code for not very good. We won't be going back."

"Our absolute favorite in Old Town. Recently added some new specials that are off the chart terrific. Try their Fish Soup appetizer, Beet Ravioli, and their meat dishes are excellent too. They also have a great staff that have been their for over a decade. This is where the locals go."

"On our first night in Alexandria we ate at A La Lucia. Absolutely the best pasta my husband and I have ever had out. My grandparents were all from Italy and I know good Italian food. This was outstanding."

"I live in Philly and travel to Alexandria a couple times a year. I stumbled across this neighborhood treasure while staying at the dismal Sheraton around the corner. The pasta is handmade, the veal as tender as the night and the family service is friendly and fabulous. (I've eaten at the bar several times; the best way to chat with the locals with a great handmade cocktail.) No matter how many good restaurants there are in Alexandra, a small city full of foodie blessings, I'll always make room for A La Lucia."
