Returning from a day in Shenandoah Natl Park and hit business 29 north in search of a restaurant. Saw this place on the south side of town, a beautifully restored older home. The menu was superb and the service was first rate. The food was delicious. Truly fine dining - a wonderful surprise! Highly recommended.

We meet some long time friends each year and Lucio's was our choice this year. Half way for all of us. Once entering the restaurant the ambiance was fantastic, still with some white lights and decorations from the holiday season. As it is famous for the Italian fare two of our members chose that, however, as crab cakes and a... More

We had planned to go to another Italian restaurant, but it was closed, so we went here. We had a very delightful dinner. The waitress was very helpful and pleasant, and the food was surprisingly delicious. I ordered the chicken parm and brought half of it home and enjoyed another dinner the next night. I would go back there anytime.

Very nice setting. It's like you're having dinner at at close friend's home. Ur dinners were absolutely delicious. If they have the veal parmigiana get it, it was remarkably good. My girlfriend got the crab cakes special and they were delicious. The staff was very nice.

This place has wonderful service. The building is beautiful. The food was very good. But it was pricey for a family of 6. No kids menus. Kids were able to order a smaller sized pasta but with the addition of meatballs, it was still 12.00. Then they added a 20% gratuity, which I hate.

Very slow night but food and service was awesome. Salads were fresh with homemade dressing. Warm bread and good portion sizes for entrees. Dinner entrées were $12 to $17. Manicotti and lasagna were both really good.

Very nice dining area. Food was very good but the portions were quite small. Prices were ok but keep in mind portions are small. Wasn't busy when we went and felt our waiter rushed us a bit.

This is our go to restaurant for Italian food in the Culpeper area. Incredible menu, food, service and very pleasant atmosphere. The eggplant Parmesan is my favorite. I highly recommend this restaurant.
