Went here for lunch after visiting the National Museum. This is a lovely place to have a meal especially if you're sat outside as we were. Really good choice of food on the menu. Pizzas, Pasta and Ethiopian dishes. I had chicken soup to start and tomato pasta for main. The tomato sauce was quite spicy but made for a... More

Ate lunch here twice. Large menu with plenty of choices, from pizza to Ethiopian dishes, and everything in between. The food was nicely arranged on the plates and looked very appetizing. I had grilled tilapia with rice and veggies and it was delicious! Very fresh. Another day I had pizza, with a delicious thin, crispy crust while others in our... More

We visited with friends at the end of our visit to the National Museum. We were surprised with the nice test and quality of service at Luci.

Museum was really a disappointment but the restaurant is a treasure. Our table had variety and everyone loved. I had Shikula Tibs and Shiro. It was awesome. Accompanied by 2 types of Injera. Macchiato was good and the mixed fruit as as good as anywhere in the city.

An interesting place, hide-away next to the National Museum! After visit the museum a nice coffee or drink in the restaurant to digest the information from the archaeological part of the National Museum.

Excellent ethiopian and italian food right outside the museum. Beautiful courtyard, clean, friendly and tasty! Price is very competitive. Definitely try the local speciality, the menu does not say much, but the staff are happy to explain the details.

Perhaps I ordered wrong, but our lunch here was not my favorite meal in Addis. They seem to do a mix of both Ethiopian food and Western food, and therefore don't seem to do either one very well. I got the sizzling chicken, which was novel and exciting when it came, but it was pretty bland and had no flavor... More

By the Museum. Nothing really great maybe coz I have been to such restaurants in US and Europe. Worth a visit if you have not been to such a restaurant before. Mid- to high-rage food prices
