There's a lot to be said about Millennials. They are often bright, well-educated, and, oh, so noisy. Especially in bars where they shout to talk to the person next to them! So, it's tricky finding a quiet place to dine and converse. Well, A la...More

Went here for an early dinner on a Saturday night. Recommend making reservations if going later. The service was attentive and good. One person and steak which was cooked to perfection and I had the chicken Marsala. Both were delicious. We had gelato for dessert.

Went here for Alexandria restaurant week and was very pleased. Good portions of excellent food; had caesar salad with salmon (salmon served hot and not overcooked). Service is excellent. Passed on the pasta -- too many calories to burn!

Stopped here for dinner because it was near our hotel and enjoyed a delicious dinner. Servings are huge (could have easily shared). Everyone love their food and wine. No room for dessert, but they looked beautiful.

The service made this feel like a high-end/five star restaurant. Several friends and I ordered the 3-course menu and it was a good deal, with good portion sizes and each dish was wonderful. The pumpkin ravioli was my favorite from the evening.

After an absence of some months, returned here last week for lunch. Was reminded again of why A la Lucia remains one of my favorite Washington area restaurants. Selection offerings for the pre-fixe lunch were varied enough to ensure something for anyone. Our dishes, from...More
