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.
Complimenting this fabulous food is an amazing selection of wines chosen by owner Michael Nayeri. Michael is known for his 18 years working with Roberto Donna at the legendary Galileo. Michael continues to share his passion for fine food and great wine through his own creation, a la Lucia.
