We live a stone's throw from Lucius and have visited it regularly since it opened. The menu is small, all the food is made to order and the service and standard of cooking are excellent. There is a small outside area that i would not recommend as there is a large kitchen extractor overhead! But the upstairs seating area and the downstairs lounge are just perfect. They are happy to put tables together for large parties and you can also use their take-away service.

We have eaten here a few times & have never been disappointed. I had one if the best steaks I've ever had here & the sharing board of meats is fab. Excellent value & great wine. Love this place- try it.

Visited Lucius recently after previously spotting it whilst driving past. I was tempted by the Gnocchi on the menu. So after finishing a game of tennis popped along there on my own to have a tasty feed. I wasn't disappointed. Quirky but homely design (which you come to expect from the Blue Mountain guys) and a really welcoming barman/waiter who sat me down towards the front. A restaurant which doesn't seek to hide solo diners always bodes well I think. Service was fast, friendly and efficient. I ordered spicy prawns and a saffron risotto which was lovely..nice plump prawns and a well cooked, flavoursome risotto. Then what I was waiting for..a Buffalo Mozzarella Pizza with extra anchovies and ham. Yum...it was just great and exactly what the doctor ordered. Fresh as a daisy, good tomatoe sauce, milky salty and stringy mozzarella and the anchovies and ham satisfying my carnivorous and pescatorious (sic) desires ! Lovely...so I reluctantly tell you to try it...which means I will then have to fight you for a table...but remember I have a tennis racquet with me ! ;) !

Lucius in Gipsy Hill is run by the same team that run the Blue Mountain Cafe at East Dulwich. We always had fantastic food there and Lucius was not a disappointment last Friday when we went for supper. The decor is quirky and lovely without being contrived, it just seems to have naturally evolved. We didn't make it to the downstairs sofa bar, a good reason to return although none is needed.The Menu is limited (Italian) and everything we ordered was delicious.We had two sharing plates to start between 5 people, one vegetarian and one for carnivores.The flavour and quality of every item on the sharing plates was superb and in the case of the spicy gherkins a surprise. For our mains we had the sea bass, chicken , gnocchi and one other that I have forgotten because the Rioja was so good I was forced to drink an amount to cause amnesia. The Rioja was half the price of a Rioja served at a very close gastropub. We never made it to the afters, another reason to return.
Is there anything bad to say? Well not really but I would dearly love it if Goat Curry could find its way onto the menu once in a while ( maybe an occasional "special") Then trips to East Dulwich would not be needed.
