Description: The legendary Lucios Pizzeria is a brand on its own and is a landmark institution in the Northcliff area. Lucios has perfected the art of the homely eatery. The restaurant's appeal lies in its uncomplicated approach; simple and excellent food served in sync with a wholesome family atmosphere. The experience at Lucios, is your local taste of Italy, Lucios South Africawhere you almost feel Italian and where you feel like you are in a small part of Italy during your dining experience for those few hours.

I have been going to this pizzeria for 30 years now and never once has it disappointed.
I remeber when Claudio himself was serving tables and doting on customers....I have even helped out in the bar during busy times.......such fond memories.

However..it is the pizza that must take main stage now. Still the best deep dish pizza in the world, mathed only by Mama's in Yeoville back in the 80's

Friends took me to this little hidden gem last night! Their Pizzas are the best in Johannesburg no doubt about that. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful and good on the eye with sense of humour. All in all we had an amazing evening.

Felt really safe and warm in this Jo'burg Pizzeria. Great staff even though I think they're interns... Price is a bit high but the food is better than most restaurants in the neighbourhood.
