Located in the Central Markets
No matter what time of the day you visit, tables at Lucia’s Pizzeria and Spaghetti Bar are in perpetual short supply. The nostalgic family-owned restaurant was started in 1957 by Lucia Rosella and is the embodiment of Southern Italian cooking in South Australia. It is located in the beating heart of Adelaide’s gastronomic epicentre: the Adelaide Central Markets.
Attracting a mini who’s who of Adelaide and abroad (Ben Folds anyone?), the restaurant is an iconic meeting place with atmosphere and charm in spades. The food served is some of the best in town, always drawing a full house of diners and even has write ups from the likes of the New York Times.
Don’t be surprised if you end up waiting on the bench for a table to free up, after all that’s what it is there for. Grab a bottle of San Pelli while you and your friends wait and get ready to move fast because you won’t be the only ones eyeing off a free seat.
