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.

Super friendly place for two jet-lagged New Yorkers on their first night in Dublin. Great and varied menu - charming interior and very cool exterior. Lovely service and just a totally great vibe.

Overrated and overpriced, a superficial and narcissistic environment, small portions of mediocre food, a good buzz but that’s about it.

Great ambience with fantastic food! It's always full so make sure you make a reservation. Love the brick wall and warm lighting that gives a really nice atmosphere. I tried their Tagliatelle with ragu and it's the best I've ever had. Craving for it now that I'm thinking about it!

Wow. From the moment I arrived (early)all the staff were friendly and accommodating. I had the Burrata, best I’ve had since Sicily, so creamy. Next was the “young” (rose veal) T Bone, cooked perfectly and served simply. Sweet, buttery & juicy, a delight. I even enjoyed the broccoli. It was a delicious. Not much in the way of carbs, but, it made the meat more enjoyable. Loved it.

Unfortunately my husband and I had to leave early due to our baby son being upset at home with Granny but everyone was so gracious about our early departure despite having ordered that we were unbelievably touched. For the time that we did spend there we were really impressed with the atmosphere, drinks (2 Old Fashioneds), menu, and above all the staff. We’ll definitely be back.

Very tasty food for great value. The service was of high level, very friendly waitress. The noise level was high however it is expected under an arch and train line. Overall, very nice atmosphere.

Definitely a big fan of the restaurant, usually go for work lunches but as we see going to 3 Arena we booked for dinner. The food is usually really good but I have to say I was disappointed this time. We didn’t even get the early bird and went full a la carte. The gnocchi with beef was a bit like irish stew with very large chunks of beef in it and overly soft gnocchi, and was very under seasoned. My pasta had about 2 half pieces of broken up prawns in it and was borderline over cooked. The tiramisu was fairly dry too. As I said I’m a big fan but the food was disappointing this time.

I have had lunch at Osteria Lucio many times and it never dissapoints. The starters in particular are a highlight with special mention for the Burrata with Aubergine...delicious. The place has a good atmosphere and the staff are helpful and friendly.

Great food
Great atmosphere
Lovely setting
Fantastic waitress, constantly with us when we needed, but not annoyingly so
The train goes over the restaurant, so you will noticeably hear it a few times throughout the meal - but we actually thought it was a unique feature!

The waiters are more than professional, they are dedicated. The food is fresh and warm with an amazing set of tastes and even discovery of new alliances of ingredients like the warm chocolate mousse with olive oil ice cream, we would recommend wholeheartedly!
