This restaurant offers a true variety of foods not just the typical Italian style. Food was fresh and well prepared. The wine menu was mainly Italian but the choices were acceptable to most prices levels. I would definitely recommend if you are in Essen. Enjoy?

The food served in Lucent is very good - some of the finest in Essen-Rüttenscheid. Lovingly prepared and made using high-quality ingredients, this Italian restaurant offers great service and brilliant value-for-money.
