Innovative Italian fare in historic digs
Italian · Bishop Arts District · $$$
The Zagat Review
The “hype is well deserved” at this “small” Bishop Arts District nook, where chef David Uygur is “in the kitchen working magic” to conjure “outstanding” Italian fare while his wife oversees the front of house; set in a historic building dating back to the ‘20s, it’s “hard to get into” , so “reservations are a must.”

Worth whatever planning ahead one has to make to ensure a seat at this sweet little spot in Oak Cliff. Warm and knowledgeable staff. AMAZING and creative dishes. Well crafted wine list- Always a guaranteed pleasure. Already looking forward to our next visit.

Despite the restaurant only seating about 38, they were able to squeeze me in after placing my name on a waiting list for about one month for a Tuesday at 5:30pm. Fantastic, attentive service without being annoying. The impeccable food is on spot from the smoked leg of pork to the risotto with foie grad. Since our party consisted of two adults and I ordered four main entrees and once appetizer, we did not room for dessert. Lucia is definitely a great place for fine, intimate dining and should not be missed by Dallas residents. Ample parking available on the side area.

It is so hard to get a table at Lucia that you set your expectations very high. Then, when finally the moment arrives and they are not met, it is disappointing. This is not a traditional Italian restaurant. It’s more a revisited cuisine. Very creative. And this is great. I had a hard time with some flavors overpowering the rest of the dish. Also, I found Lucia overpriced: $25+ for 10 agnolotti is too much. The home-baked bread is to die for!
