Top pick: Everyone talks about Lucia’s pastas, which means they’re missing out on something even better: its bread. Order anything involving bread or toast, whether it involves a bounty of fresh vegetables or a molten blanket of cheddar cheese. If you want to pinch a few slices from the bread basket to take home, maybe bring a pretty big purse.
The downside: Like the reservation system, the downsized dessert program also reflects Lucia’s tiny space.
Fun fact: The notorious difficulty of scoring reservations at Lucia scares people away from actually walking into the restaurant and asking for a seat, a strategy with a decent chance of success, especially in good weather when two outdoor tables are available.
