Really love Lucius a real hidden gem in Crystal Palace for authentic Italian food. Fresh ingredients, fresh pasta, fresh bread, fresh pizza etc etc. Stands out above all the nasty Italian chains which are so common these days. The menu is simple but there is enough there to keep us coming back and always a fantastic selection of daily specials. Highly recommend having the fresh bread which is cooked in the kitchen on the day, and you can tell instantly. The Gnocchi is also fantastic and probably the best I have tasted in the UK, the pizzas are also excellent with a great selection of fresh toppings. The service is friendly and the staff are very welcoming. The best thing about the place is that it's so cheap, 3 courses and a glass of wine for about £20-25 is a steal considering the quality of food on offer. We have been several times and it never disappoints. Will be back again soon.

Very good food at reasonable prices. Crystal Palace's Italian restaurants leave a lot to be desired these days so very happy that Lucius & Mediterranea are taking up the mantle


Really good food. Nice place for after dinner drinks downstairs and just round the corner. Excellent!


Went with a large group and had a bit of a long wait to be served but the staff we friendly and the food, when it arrived, pretty good. This place is just what you want in a neibourhood restaurant.


Went to Lucius last night. The pasta was DIVINE with creamy chilled slices of mozzarella on top and perfectly seasoned. Made me realise how often we put up with so-so ingredients - and pay a lot more for mediocrity. Locals are blessed indeed. Great little garden too.
