Run by Italians, you know the cuisine served up at Lucia’s Italian Kitchen is going to be the real deal. Start off in true Italian style by sharing some antipasti like the Uovo al Vino Rosso (duck egg poached in a spiced Italian red wine served with toasted brioche, sautéed spinach, parma ham and dressed rocket) or the Pate Di Fegati Di Pollo (chicken liver parfait with red onion marmalade, toasted bread and dressed rocket), before moving on to the main affair.
From classic pastas like penne carbonara, to authentic Italian pizzas with a variety of mouthwatering toppings, as well as an array of meat and seafood dishes, there’s something to suit all tastes and occasions on the menu at Lucia’s Italian Kitchen. We recommend the pollo ripieno (chicken breast stuffed with garlic butter and parsley, smothered in a blue cheese and cream sauce and served with pan fried leek and pancetta). Finish off with some homemade tiramisu - bellissimo! For a superlative Italian dining experience in the Stockton-on-Tees area, book a table at Lucia’s Italian Kitchen on Yarm’s High Street.
The restaurant was not as busy as usual so the service on this occasion was excellent. Food was fine and a good night was had by all.
Very good service, lovely food, great atmosphere even though not many people in, great music and fantastic pink mojito, great evening to end my birthday
Lovely atmosphere always at this restaurant. The service and welcome always makes it a pleasant visit and the food is always excellent, have never been able to fault it.
Always a lovely welcome. Excellent food, friendly service and chilled atmosphere. Never had a bad visit yet. Even at its busiest this restaurant never fails. Love it.
A few things not on the menu - it was a quiet Sunday so I get why certain produce not in stock. Staff very helpful and the kids pizzas were nice. Pasta had by adults was okay and nothing overly special. Starters were also okay - olives seemed like they were supermarket tinned ones - admittedly olives were not a starter option (they happily gave us as a starter option) so perhaps an ingredient for dishes therefore no need to be posh ones, calamari and bruscheta was again nice. All in all a good standard of food and good service.
A lovely place to eat, we had the teatime special - 3 courses for £12.95 and we thought as it was a deal the portions would be smaller than normal however this was not the case. We loved every part of our meal, service was prompt and attentive without being too overbearing or feeling rushed. We will be going back.
The food was excellent just a couple of small problems stopped us giving a maximum score. On arrival we were seated near a large very noisy party but the staff quickly moved us to a quieter part of the restaurant and when paying the bill the card machine did not work meaning I had to go outside to the local cash machine to get enough cash to pay the bill. Due to the card machine issue we left a smaller tip than we would normally give.
The menu was restricted and needs more choice. They tried to add on a £15 service charge which was firstly excessive and secondly the service did not warrant it so we asked for this to be removed. Because of the way this had just been added to our bill, we did not even leave a tip out of principle. I thought that the restaurant was expensive in comparison to other restaurants in Yarm. The food was nice.
We booked a table of two for 2045, arrived at the Restraunt on time and were told to get a drink as the table wasn't ready. We bought 2 drinks each and waited 30 minutes to be seated at the table. No apology given or complementary item. I was aware the restraunt was busy, but most frustrating when a couple that were a walk in got seated on a table before ourselves.
Very good atmosphere. Staff very friendly and helpful. Food was excellent and very good value. Service from the waiters was excellent. This was one of the best restaurants I have been to in a long time and will be returning there again very soon.
Food and service was excellent! Garlic mushrooms were gorgeous, chicken liver pate was great, but only 1 portion available. Lasagna was tasty, as was the risotto - which was full of big tender chunks of beef - & it was a huge portion!
Lucia's has a lively atmosphere (especially near to Christmas), the food is very good and I would say good value for money. Our table was quite close to a noisy Christmas party but this did not detract from an enjoyable evening.
The starters took 40 minutes to come out. The mains - chicken parmo was just lots of cheese and no chicken. The ribs had no meat on at all and for £16 it was not worth it and the person eating it gave up!. The grilled chicken was meant to have blue cheese sauce but they forgot which came out 10 minutes after. The service wasn't really with a smile and no apology for the wait. We were really disappointed as some of the guests were from 100s of miles away visiting and it was their first time trying the Middlesbrough Parmesan which was really poor. It was really hard to part with £160 to pay for something that wasn't nice.
Very good. Service was spot on and the food a big improvement on last time. Restored my faith in Lucia's as my last experience wasn't great. Bit noisy though, and is there really any need to have the BBC News on big screens?
Fantastic food, great choice and excellent service even on a very busy Saturday early evening. We had the anti pasti to start & I had Seabass which was beautifully cooked. Too full for desert! 👍😄
Steak was the fattiest piece of meat I have ever been served. It was like cutting rubber with a blunt cartoon knife, I physically couldn't cut it never mind eat it. Complete waste of time and effort. Initially I was offered a complimentary glass of wine to compensate the £25.50 (including £2.50 bland blue cheese sauce) to which I refused, requesting that I would rather not pay for something that I cannot eat. The only positive was that the polite waitress Kindly removed the whole meal from the final bill without any fuss. Other food ordered was pretty average. - Parmo chicken was very thick - they obviously don't make calzone very often - chips were very greasy and soggy - warm chocolate fudge cake was cold Positives: - the fish looked nice - friendly staff All in all. I don't think much of the food is cooked to order and if it's busy the kitchen staff struggle. If you have an unfussy dog at home, then you should have a decent portion to bag up and take with you. Our dog is a bit of a snob though and would probably take it to the garden and bury it.
I had a medium rare steak which was very nice my wife had a well done steak which she said was very nice and my son had the chicken Parmesan which looked really nice but had very little taste
I have visited Lucia's several times, each time meal has been great. Unfortunately this time we waited 45minutes for our meal after ordering, atmosphere was great, staff very friendly but when our meal arrived my meal did not seem to all go together, I ordered the lamb which came with potatoes, asparagus, cous cous and a light gravy. The lamb was very fatty which I know that lamb can be, but stated on the menu as 'lamb rump'. I really love Lucia's but feel this needs to be addressed due to having such great previous experiences.
excellent atmosphere, food good and friendly efficient service, But house white (pinot grigio) a rip off at just under £19 and chunky chips weren't chunky and under cooked. Rest of the served food was well presented and tasty.
Pleasant atmosphere and good service. Our first visit at Lucias and I've got to say I really enjoyed it. The food was nice and it was reasonably priced. We will be paying a visit back to Lucias soon.
Lovely meal and atmosphere. Even though it was extremely busy staff were very attentive. We had the tea time special, making it a great value evening. Will definitely return.
The restaurant itself was really beautiful and had such a lovely atmosphere. The food was lovely and the staff were really friendly, would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Excellent food and friendly staff! Thoroughly enjoyed celebrating Mother's Day there. Reasonably priced and booking made easy by online facilities. Highly recommend especially to families with young children!!
The food was good as was the service. It was a little too loud to carry on a conversation, but everyone was having fun so that was okay.
Food was delicious. Service was a little bit slow due to a shortage of staff. The lady that served us was rushed off her feet as she was looking after the full restaurant by herself.
The food was absolutely delicious and the staff were brilliant, very willing to help and attentive. Booking a table was easy, even on a busy Saturday evening
Everyone who went enjoyed the food and friendly staff. Sea bass lovely and fiery Pizza red hot with nice Patmos. No qualms about a revisit 👍
This is a lovely restaurant, good food, good service and the teatime special is really good value. I would recommend without hesitation for a celebration etc.

Pleasant environment and friendly service, with excellent food - just too much too eat! A varied menu and we'd certainly go again for Sunday lunch.
Lovely food and very friendly staff. Although it was busy, the service was excellent and we didn't wait very long for our food to arrive.
