The food was quite nice, however, the reason we booked was that we thought the pasta was home made. It wasn't. A bit disappointed. Had a bit of a sing and dance. Maria explained the history of the Macaroni factory which was quite interesting.

My bowl of pasta was swimming in water. I could not eat my meal even though I was starving. Apart from the water the sauce wasn't nice. The waiter needs to attempt to look the part and wear an apron at the very least. The...More

How often do you get to dine in an authentic nineteenth century dining room with big open fire, huge ceiling fresco, worn wooden tables? Matt and his mother Maria are welcoming and obliging hosts. Meals are mostly pasta and quite acceptable. Good local wines available...More

This family run restaurant has a warm and genuine atmosphere complimented by tasty food. Not a slick establishment (if that's what you're after) but has charm in bucket loads. Everyone was friendly and the grandmother gave a very interesting historical talk. We all enjoyed our...More

Not everyone will appreciate Lucinis. If you want impersonal slick dining go somewhere else. Lucinis is warm, friendly, casual_ if you want to feel part of an Italian family meal with good wholesome food then book in. Atmospheric and enjoyable rather than polished and impersonal.
