Lucia’s Pizza & Spaghetti Bar, Adelaide Central Market


Lucia’s Pizzeria & Spaghetti Bar, an iconic and popular haunt for SA locals and travellers for simple home style Italian cooking. The family owned business first opened its doors in 1957 and is located on the western wall of the Central Market. Best known for their coffees, pizzas, freshly made pastas with their home made sauce and healthy salads, it was about time I made my way there and gave my taste buds a treat!

A vongole: gnocchi with baby clams and fresh tomato sauce; $11.00
Bolognese: tagliatelle pasta with homemade tomato sauce and meat; $11.00

Fresh pasta and simple flavours however not a lot of ‘grunt’ in their sauce. That aside, an enjoyable meal, very homey, food was fresh and seasonal, extremely affordable and serving sizes were incredibly generous! I only made a third of the way through my gnocchi before I waved the white flag! I’m keen to return on a Thursday or Friday to try out their specials (only available on Thu/Fri), most notably their lasagne! Mmm.. lasagne! :)~
