The atmosphere was relaxing and quite pleasant. Obvious attention to detail. Greeted at the door as soon as we came in by pleasant and professional staff. The food was amazing and the recommendation for wine with dinner was perfect, by assessing my taste first. This will definitely be a location we return to on our visits. We found it the... More

Fresh from out of town and saw reservations were open on "opentable." Walked into a setting we didn't expect! Very warm and inviting, complimentary apps and the food was exquisite!

My wife enjoyed the pickled cauliflower, crispy pig ears, and pork belly while I enjoyed the fish and chips. Great service in a casual atmosphere.

After traveling in Spain last year we spent three nights in Lisbon Portugal. I found the food in Portugal to be more to my liking, a bit more tasty. Same for Cafe Lucia. Very tasty and perhaps easier to get a table at than the other restaurants in Healdsburg. I highly recommend.

Tucked away behind the main street so do not miss this gem. A lovely outdoor patio and comfortable seating inside. Good Portuguese wines and local ones from which to choose. We split the special fish of the day which was delicious. Can also recommend bacalau, the cod. The amuse bouche was terrific. Little glasses of cold beet soup yellow and... More

Quaint little restaurant that made us feel like we were in Portugal for dinner- the dishes were excellent all around. Definitely suggest doing what we did and letting the server describe the Portuguese wines before choosing one. It's easy to default to a local wine while there but we loved the red that he helped us pick.

I visited Portugal last year and was anxious to try Café Lucia when I saw it on a list of restaurants in Downtown Healdsburg. The location was off-putting at first, but upon entering it seemed almost magical. They have a wonderful enclosed patio area and a nice, warm restaurant interior with paintings of the Portugal I fell in love with... More

Yes, highly recommended online, and just a skip off the main square. It was a drizzly evening, and getting late, but Lucia welcomed us with its off-street setting, wonderful courtyard seating (for better weather), and immediate escort to an intimate table with subdued lighting, great run of the dining room, and elegant table settings. This may be the top romantic... More
