We've eaten at Cafe Lucia twice. The first meal was about two years ago: lunch with our son and his family - four adults and two grandkids, 15 and 12 years-old. Placing our orders for food was complicated because there were some limitations and strong preferences. The staff and kitchen, however, were more than up to the challenge. The more... More

I wouldn't have found this restaurant without the help of TripAdvisor. What a hidden gem. We had excellent service and the Portuguese-influenced menu was fresh and well-prepared. The sweets were especially notable.

Having been to Healdsburg many times, we've noticed the little sidewalk sign out in front of the building that houses Cafe Lucia but never ventured in. This time, however, our innkeeper highly recommended we give it a try, so we took a chance and made a reservation for Friday night. Boy, are we glad we did! This little gem of... More

This place is a little out of the way--you have to walk down a covered passageway to find it. Once there, though, you're in a hidden sanctuary amid often crowded Healdsburg restaurants. Outstanding food with a great, reasonably-priced wine list--half Sonoma County, half Portuguese. Attentive service. Don't worry about "Portuguese cuisine." This is wine country food at its finest, and... More

Great little place for delicious small plates. Waiter was excellent and gave great recommendations. The cod cakes were delicious and make sure you make their Happy Hour, $5 Bubbly and Oysters!

We love their food. Their seafood dishes are delicious. I love their "paella". If you want a taste of Portuguese, you should try Cafe Lucia.

We decided to try this Portuguese restaurant as a change of pace. We were drawn by the bubbly and oyster special. We ended up having several tapas that were incredible. The dinner was extremely tasty and our waiter Chuck was very helpful In deciding what to have.

A group of 6 enjoyed a special night of Portuguese food and wine. The staff were friendly and attentive. Ambiance is relaxed. Food is delicious and everything is super fresh. Wine list is limited and focused, but quite nice.

We couldn't have enjoyed our first time lunch at Café Lucia more. Excellent and unique Mediterranean food options served with obvious care - delicious. We sampled two of their desserts as well and we were not disappointed. Probably the only downside was that it's location was a little hard to find, but well worth it. Indoor dining as well as...

Service was a bit distracted even though they weren't busy. The food was just above average but for the price, not necessarily a must-try.
