“Out of the Way--But Great Food”
Reviewed 8 November 2012

This review is based on one luncheon visit. Lucia's is a real find if one wants excellent Italian food and good prices. The ante pasta is as good as any that we had in Italy, and the entrees were very good and reasonably priced. The house wine (a Cabernet in our case) was well worth the price. The restaurant has little in the way of ambiance, and it is located in an out-of-the-way shopping center near Reston, Virginia. Actually, the address of Lucia's is NOT Fox Mill Road, but is 2531 John Milton Drive, just off Fox mill Road. If you are not familiar with the area, I suggest "Goggling" the restaurant for directions, etc.There appears to be a sister restaurant in Sterling Virginia.

We consider this restaurant a real find, and we will definitely return for other meals.

“Eat here all the time”
Reviewed 25 March 2012 via mobile

This is right up the road from us and we eat here all the time, both for lunch and dinner. We generally get pasta or pizza, both of which are good. The sandwiches are great for a quick lunch (generally do takeout). There's nothing fancy about Lucia's, just a great family run neighborhood restaurant.

“Good local pizza, pasta and subs”
Reviewed 12 November 2011

Lucia's is a great place to stop by for a quick, reasonably-priced lunch sub, and it's also nice for a family-friendly pizza or pasta dinner. Especially if you catch one of their weekly dinner specials such as half-price baked ziti, or half-price pizza. (Let's not even mention the half-price pitchers of beer on Tuesday nights). Food quality is much better than the decor and cleanliness of the restaurant, and the service is somewhere in between.

“Good family restaurant.”
Reviewed 8 November 2011

Food is good. Wine selection ok. We like the 'half price' lasagna & pizza deals on Mon & Tues. & are good values. Offer a good gluten free pizza.
