Lucia's is not well publicized or well heard of like other high-caliber restaurants but it is still able to hold its own by offering high quality food- all natural and organic foods are prevalent- from local farms cooked by excellent chefs for a reasonable price.
Brunch starts with an assortment of scones and muffins to choose from and starters including bacon, fresh fruit, potatoes, and salad. The entrées change every week with what foods are in season and usually include some kind of omelette, waffles, and meat. To finish off the meal, if you aren't already extremely satisfied with the good-sized portions, there is still dessert. Fruit tart anyone?
For dinner the meal starts out with a salad, daily soup, or other small plate and is followed by entrées that also change every week, including healthy and filling options. There is always some type meat or fish and vegetarian offerings.
The setting isn't scenic or extremely private, with many tables somehow squished into the smaller space, and the noise can get to be quite loud as the night goes on but the ambiance isn't lost. The waiters and waitresses, hosts and hostesses are all superbly nice and knowledgeable and the food is so good you can't help but feel well taken care of. In the evenings some people dress up, others scale it down a notch, but there is no one to be seen in jeans and a t-shirt. People come to treat themselves to a wholesome and tasty experience and want to look the part.
Service is good- reservations can be made in advance but if you can't find a table when you walk in the Wine Bar next door provides another resource from which you can order off their menu or the restaurant's. The food comes in a good amount of time and doesn't leave you waiting too long. And you can always keep yourself occupied by watching the waters and waitresses carrying plates of delicious food or, if you're lucky, the dessert tray.
