Lucio is name of the owner. He was born and raised in Naples. He has worked at pizzeria since when he was 14 years old,

After the graduation, he happened to meet a Sydney-based Neapolitan chef and this brought him to Sydney. In 4 years, he made his name spread as one of Sydney’s finest Pizzaioli and in 2008 he opened Lucio Pizzeria.

Now Lucio is a member of the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana, which is the stamp of approval for true artisan pizza and he has been spotlighted by numerous media in Sydney.

What is So Special about the Pizza?

The Pizza Lucio makes is authentic so that Italians admit that it is same as the one they eat in Italy or more.

The dough is baked in a traditional wood-fired oven and get burn marks which make pizza look appetizing. The pizza is thin and topped ingredients are fresh.

The point of authentic is that the pizza is not over sauced and topped. It is really simple and this is the way an Italian pizza should be.

Even a crust is a tasty and can not be left over.

The Recommended Menu

I think I don’t have to name any recommendation. However, if you let me do, I say Filetto and Lucio.

Filetto has mozzarella, cherry tomato, rocket, prosciutto and shaved parmesan. The pizza,  rocket and prosciutto, 3 diffrent textures gets together very well.

Lucio is half Margherita and half calzone with ricotta, mozzarella and ham. It is folded and very unique.

You have around 20 options to choose from, hence think twice and chose what you love.

The Desserts

In addition, Panna Cotta is also lovely and Gelato is authentic and refresh your mouth to the end of the meal.

If you would like to for pizza more, they have Nutella Pizza for you.

No Reservation

Lucio Pizzeria doesn’t take reservations, hence there is always a waiting line. Tables are turned over quickly so you do not have to wait that long.

If the queue could be long, you just give your number and the stuff call you when the table is ready.

Or you can opt for the take away. However, be noted that just-baked pizza is always the best.
