The story of food is the story of friendship. When you combine Irish conviviality with the irrepressible Italian nature, it’s always going to be a good thing. 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.

Food was wonderful and the staff very attentive. We booked at the last minute and were not disappointed. Will definitely be back next time I'm in Dublin!

Food was poor. Ordered seafood pasta dish, approx two prawns in it cut up to make it look like more. Very little flavour.

Remains one of the best places in the Docklands for a business lunch. Best food by far, good ambiance, professional service allowing for efficient lunches, and the right amount of buzz without being someplace you cannot hear each other.

Great food but far too noisy. They need some soft furnishings to absorb sound. The vaulted ceiling doesn’t help!

We decided to work our way through the starter menu rather than order mains, the roasted olives were a little weird bu other than that everything was excellent. Flavors were well balanced and portions were perfect even large for starters and we thoroughly enjoyed everything.

The noise level is high as the restaurant is built under a railway bridge but it really just adds to the charm of the room.

The space is very comfortable with really nice and well chosen lighting. The decor is understated but well suited and the wine list is small but very well chosen. We had a cianti that was rich and full bodied but so well balanced.

Finally the staff were absolutely charming and really completed the experience

I would advise anyone, families, friends night or romantic nights out with your partner

Tasty food, nice setting, polite service, back of the room a bit dark and you can hear the dart every time, which is weird, and this is just personal opinion , but all in all a very nice place.

The food was really nice and we all enjoyed it. Most of the time, the service was good, however at the end, a few of us had finished but there was one person still eating and the waitress started clearing up the other plates etc and even took the salt and pepper away, even though not everyone was finished eating.

Went to Osteria Lucia before starting a hiking trip across Ireland, and liked it so much, when we finished the trip, we went back (actually right to the same table). Great service, great food, good wine list... consistency seems to be the key here. A Winner across the board!11

The food was good, staff was nice, but the restaurant was loud and I’m not referring to the trains passing overhead. The noise was not as I expected from a nice restaurant. It resembled a pub.

Unfortunately we had to rush because we were late arriving due to traffic and had to get to the Bord Gaia. However the staff were friendly and accommodating and the food was tasty. Will definitely be returning when I have more time.

From the greeting to dessert our experience was great. Friendly host made us feel welcome and the table service was on point. Six of us dined and all ordered different entrees. Pizzas, pastas, seafood and steak. No one favorite, as all were fantastic! I ordered the steak and it was perfectly prepared. Osteria Lucio was one of the highlights of our trip to Dublin.

Had a beautiful dinner here last Tuesday. The only hiccup was the obnoxiously loud family at the table behind us that just didn't seem to have I door voices and were intent on shouting the entire time - I can't fault the restaurant for this though! The food was lovely and I'd love to go back but maybe at a quieter time.

Tables way too close together , I felt uncomfortably close to the next table . The drinks lists was considerably over priced , in my opinion with an average Pinot Grigio costing me €8.50 for a glass. I also found the menu set expensive and though the pizza was nice it cost €19.00!
