Description: Benvenuti in Italia! ... When you get to the restaurant Lucia tests the delicious taste of Tuscan cuisine, without leaving Medellin. Our Italian Steak House, has the best Colombian chefs. This in order to offer our guests a sublime flavor in each dish. The Lucia restaurant is open to guests and the general public to give the Medellin unique touch of Italian cuisine.

Great vibe, luxury feel. Very attentive wait staff who spoke English. They also helped me with my Spanish as well. My husband and I had the chicken carbonara. Slighty oily but tasty nonetheless.
The decor is very trendy and ambiance perfect for a date night.

Greetings Melicious1

Thank you very much for this kind review about our restaurant. We appreciate the time you took to share your experience with the trip advisor community. It is true that in Lucia our staff is required to know English so we can bring the best service to our clients that doesn't speak Spanish. We are also glad you enjoyed your food, we are sorry if you thought it was very oily, we are going to take this suggestion in account and make the respective adjustments.

We hope to see you soon again,

Regards,

Sebastian Valencia
Client Service Director

I recommend to try the eggplant as an entrance and the lobster gnocchi as main dish. Deserts are great too,
Just follow the waitress advise!

The ambiance here is very pleasant and fresh. The hostess speaks English if that matters to you. Service was prompt and positive, though not overly personable or totally organized. The food itself was rather bland except for the odd sharp (out of proportion) flavor in a sauce here or there. There is a sort of oily essence with an odd aftertaste to some dishes. We wanted to try a bunch of stuff so we ordered an octopus risotto, apple raviolis, shrimp raviolis, a beef rib dish and a tuna dish. The tuna dish was decent, the beef dish was fairly plain (and not as enormous as the waiter suggested), the "prawn" ravioli had small diced shrimp inside and practically zero flavor and the apple ravioli lacked any sweetness. It was instead dominated by the bitter aftertaste of gorgonzola, which was the base of the sauce, Normally I like that contrast but here there was no apple flavor or sweetness at all. The texture on the pastas was adequate but nothing remarkable, better on the apple ones. The octupus was tender and combined well with the dish, but the rice and sauce alone were not very tempting once the octopus was gone. Overall this place is all right but it doesn't have any one area where it stands out, the value is mediocre and the food is too bland to really entice me to return.
