Situated on a quiet corner in north Old Town, a la Lucia has fast become one of the neighborhood's favorite spots. Consistently recognized by Washingtonian magazine as one of the area’s top 100 restaurants, a la Lucia specializes in southern Italian cuisine. The dishes are simple, not trendy, and flavored by little more than the wonderfully fresh ingredients. The food here stays true to a traditional Italian table.
A la Lucia's private dining room can accommodate parties of 20-40 guests. The room is adorned with hundreds of wine bottles on custom wooden shelves.
