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.

Osteria Lucio gets better with every visit. The food is an exciting Italian adventure - every dish a new and pleasurable experience. The welcome is warm and the service just the right degree of attentive.

I ate with my sister on a busy Saturday night (just past). We were given a very warm welcome and provided with menus immediately. Great advice was given on food choices. Drinks and food arrived quickly, We had efficient and warm service from all of the staff that we met but specifically with Bobby who was excellent. We enjoyed a selection of salumi, followed by amazing crab and ricotta ravioli accompanied by a v nice well priced bottle of Gavi. We ere fairly full after the 2 course but were delighted with our complimentary tiramisu (this is a must !) We had a great visit and will return.

Booked for a quick post theatre meal for myself my two young children and it didn’t disappoint. Tasty half portion meals for the girls and my pizza was delicious. We will definitely return the next time we are in Dublin.

The atmosphere and ambience were excellent and I found the staff to be exceptionally friendly and welcoming, as well as efficient. Whilst there wasn’t a huge choice on the menu, the food was delicious and very well thought out. I don’t really know Dublin and stumbled upon this venue by accident but would definitely recommend it.

Fabulous food — salmon appetizer was light and full of flavor; roast chicken breast was cooked perfectly and leg (confit) was melt-in-the-mouth. Staff was friendly, attentive, and helpful; they all seemed to be working together to meet whatever the need was. We were impressed by the entire evening.

Thorougly enjoyable dining experience. Gorgeous decor and great ambience-bustling but not overcrowded. Gorgeous mix of Italian antipasti, pasta, pizza, fish and meat dishes; winning flavour combinations and well-presented. The pre-theatre menu had a great range of options and is excellent value for money. The staff are unanimously friendly, efficient and professional throughout. A great option for pre-show dining or a night out!

snow in Dublin meant we didn't want to stray too far and this was around the corner, what a lucky find! aboslutely gorgeous from start to finish. Would DEFINITELY go back. If I had to be picky, the only thing I would have liked to have seen would be a dish or two for vegans. Otherwise faultless

We had friends over from Scotland for the rugby match. Despite their disappointment at losing, they and we enjoyed the ambiance, the friendly service and the excellent food. We were pleasantly surprised when we got the bill! All in all a great night and we certainly will visit Osteria Lucio again.

Excellent from start to finish. Can’t find a word that would fault the food that was received. Just a beautiful atmosphere! Admirably priced for the quality of the experience. Would highly recommend for all, just as it was reccomeded to us. Would be a perfect spot for many occasions in my opinion from impressing on a date to a business dinner.

This is our third time using this restaurant for a family birthday and it was the most disappointing. The starters were good and the desserts also but the mains overall were disappointing. 3 if the party had the baked monkfish and it was boringly bland, saved only by the polenta chips and the sweet potato wedges. One person had the ravioli with spinach - nothing memorable at all about it. It is a child friendly space and our two youngsters behaved well because they were not too confined and we brought plenty of drawing materials to occupy them! But overall I would not rate this as one of our more enjoyable family dinners and especially as it was a celebration of two birthdays.

From the moment we sat down our whole experience was amazing, our waitress was so lovely , my husband asked her if they sold one of the dressings , she organised it with the manager & gave us a parting gift of a bottle, he was thrilled !
The food was superb from stater to dessert , my main the ravioli was just mouthwatering . My husband had the steak with cabbage & delicious. Would highly recommend & can't wait to go back & try the pizza !

Gorgeous food, really wonderful service, and very accommodating to someone with a dairy allergy (which is quite unusual). It's a lovely restaurant too, with a nice relaxed atmosphere. The lemon and mint sorbet was the highlight, best sorbet I've ever had. Will definitely be going back!

Food was excellent - gem of a pizza. Service was prompt , especially important as we were heading to the local theatre straight after. Waitress was very pleasant. We changed our booking at the last minute from 2 people to 4 and it was no trouble. I would highly recommend it.

We were very disappointed with this restaurant. It was extremely noisy. We were seated close to the entrance on a cold night and there was a cold draught throughout the evening. I ordered a Tiramisu for dessert and asked for it with no icing sugar sprinkled on top. The waitress came back with a message from the chef saying that there is icing sugar in the Tiramisu. I found this very strange as it would make the Tiramisu sickly sweet. I therefore did not have a dessert. The use of icing sugar in the dessert is a very poor baking practice leading to very poor quality desserts.
