Came here for lunch on a rainy day. There are so many bites to choose from. The fried pig ears were very good. There was also a blood sausage that tasted delicious. There is a large wine selection and the staff is very friendly yet professional.

The restaurant, down a covered walk through other businesses which is very good when it's raining, is comfortable, cool and relaxed with seats at tables or a large horseshoed bar. Free Petiscos, cold red and yellow beet soup in small glasses, are brought as a surprise. The major problem is choosing above delicious-sounding entrees or a huge number of small... More

Our group of six visited Sonoma between Christmas and New Years for a bit of a wine and food indulgence experience. Based on various strong recommendations and our collective enjoyment of Portuguese cuisine in general and tapas in particular, we visited Cafe Lucia with high expectations. The headline says it all.....solid but not spectacular. The variety of dishes we ordered... More

Been here many times, and as a Dedicated Wine Tour Driver, Uber Driver and now Chauffeur for Pure Luxury Transportation, I recommend Cafe Lucia as much as possible. Their Happy Hour is SO GOOD! A buck-an-oyster! They have little fine touches like: a shot glass of lovely cold beet soup to start with. (Free). $5 Prosecco! A wooden palate of:... More

Thoroughly enjoyed everthing! Did not know much about Portuguese cuisine but if Lucia's is any indication will seek out this speciality in the future. Oysters highlighted by Meyer lemon were incredibly fresh. Small plate of scallops that melted in your mouth was divine. Short ribs were exceptionally moist and tender and the Brazilian entre of basically meat, rice and beans... More

Everything is wonderful about "Cafe Lucia" from the ambience to the amazing food. I love seafood and eat it often, but I have never had more delicious scallops. With each bite, I groaned in pleasure. Our waitress was knowledgeable and efficient; we were well taken care of during the meal. For starters, we were served a free appetizer and at... More

This Portuguese inspired restaurant offers an excellent menu with both tapas, appetizers and main courses of high quality with wonderful flavors. Highly recommend this great restaurant offering a unique experience. Our server Frank did an excellent job guiding as through the menus, wine list and the many choices of ports and Madeira wines.

Wine tasting Vendor recommended this restaurant. Portuguese inspired. Nice ambience, cool and dark. Decent wine list. Little horseshoe shaped bar as well as general seating. Located down an alley in downtown. Nice selection of tapas style appetizers. Nice entrees , small portions. Very sweet staff.

We stopped for lunch, at the recommendation of the woman in the tourist office, and liked it so much we returned for dinner. (Portuguese food is very rare in our home area.) Both meals were delicious, the wine list is great (including choices by the glass), and the service was excellent. This one will be on our permanent must-go list.
