Lucio's Italian Restaurant Restaurant Review: For 20-plus years, Lucio’s has been dispensing its own formula for dining success from these unassuming premises. Whether it's the swift yet smooth professionalism of the staff or the rustic surroundings --- an ochre and terra cotta backdrop entirely appropriate for the predominantly northern Italian cuisine --- it hardly matters. Ligurian-born owner Lucio Galletto's enduring passions, art and cuisine, are evident here, where walls are covered with his favorite fine-art pieces. Chef Logan Campbell turns out the sort of food that has made this place so distinctive. On the à la carte and tasting menus, expect dishes such as flash-fried Hawkesbury River school prawns, black handkerchief pasta with seafood, balsamic-glazed duck, and zucchini flower risotto with steamed venerupis clams and tarragon. The extensive wine list has over 200 well-bred Australian and Italian wines (30 by the glass).
