On arrival, there was no record of our booking that I had booked through a separate entity. But we were accommodated straight away and given a great table. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. A great night.
My favourite restaurant in Paddington! Elegant, wonderful art on the walls, impeccable service and great food and wine! Not cheap but worth every penny! Lucio’s is magnificent! But I am not overfond of the beans!
It's our "neighbourhood gem" ... we've never been disappointed. Grazie mille.
Good food and drinks. Service was attentive. The highlight of the night was the pasta dish. All in all, a pleasant dining experience.
Excellent service and perfect food, a great combination.
Pasta was delicious!
Brilliant service - (catered for me as a vegetarian: AMAZING veggie pasta dish - now going on their menu!) Fantastic wine list /top service and zucchini flowers to die for!!! We will be back sooner rather than later! J Ashbee

Wonderful food, wine, service and venue. Lucio and his team are brilliant.
Bring back the burrata !
Always beautiful food Would love to see anchovies on the list And a simple pasta - oilio ?
Excellent restaurant, fabulous service & wonderful food
We were served by two or three different waiters, and while they were mostly pleasant, none were overly friendly (except for Lucio himself) and one in particular was kind of bad tempered, and towards the end of the evening completely ignored us. We waited more than 20 minutes just to get the bill!
My husband and I planned a nice birthday lunch for our daughter. I did inform the restaurant of the occasion and received an email asking for my daughter’s name so they could write on her dessert. On arrival they wished her a happy birthday but that was all. I did persuade my daughter to have a dessert , I was planing to sing softly but it was forgotten. So that was a little disappointing but we did have a lovely lunch with great service.
Nice staff but service wasn’t great especially for a restaurant of this standard. The food was average and not worth the price
Wonderful staff and fantastic food.
Food and service was of a very high order. I will definitely be back.
Amazing! Thank you for the great birthday lunch for our group of friends.

Food, wine & art
Lucio's has been serving exceptional Italian cuisine with a northern influence on this leafy Paddington corner since 1983. A constant recipient of numerous awards over the years, Lucio's continues to be recognised by critics, and enjoyed by customers for the fresh pasta made daily on the premises, traditional northern Italian cuisine (sometimes with a twist), outstanding service and attention to detail and eclectic wine list. The site originally housed the Hungry Horse Art Gallery and Restaurant, renowned for both excellent food and avante-garde contemporary art with such greats as John Olsen, Colin Lancley and Robert Hughes (before he decided he was more suited to the road of the art critic). Lucio has co-incidentally continued this harmonious tradition with great food and stunning Australian art.
Best dish: mirrool creek lamb backstrap wrapped in silver beet served with cannellini bean purée, roast cipollini & watercress
