#Lucio’s at Home

I have been self-isolating for 2 weeks after returning from a quick trip to London. And, I couldn’t cook the whole time! I have been very well cooked for by my partner Adrian…and he ordered Lucio’s at home for a lovely dinner last week. I could get very used to that! As they say “nourishing food, prepared by people you trust for you to enjoy at home”!

It was more than nourishing, it was delicious and it all travelled very well! and, it came with complimentary homemade biscotti!

Lucky Lucio’s dinner

A few weeks ago we had gone to Oxford St in Paddington to try a new Italian place but found it doesn’t open for a while so thought we would try our luck to get a table for two at legendary Lucio’s on the spur of the moment.

Not only were we lucky to get a table, we were greeted by the lovely Lucio himself and welcomed warmly by everyone on a very busy Saturday night.

We were given delicious complimentary canapés and warm crusty bread to start as we contemplated the wine list and menu.

We chose a Vino Rosso from Umbria and settled on the Duck liver parfait with poached yabbies and the famous green noodles with crab for entrees and slow cooked lamb shoulder and duck for our mains with a side of Brussel sprouts.

As always, each dish was superbly executed and delicious with creative sauces and gels adding to the fine dining experience, all in the warm, welcoming and happy atmosphere of Lucio’s.

Make sure you reserve a table if going as you might not be as lucky as we were to get into the spur of the moment as we were.

Thanks Lucio, Michaela and the team for another great dining experience.
