Lucia in Winchester Gets a Makeover and Maffeo Menu Touches

Lucia's updated dining room in Winchester
Family-owned Lucia Ristorante in Winchester has made some cosmetic upgrades, and celebrated consulting chef Pino Maffeo has revised the menu.

The 26-year-old restaurant has expanded the dining room, removed dated decor and now showcases exposed brick and more natural light; there’s a new bar/lounge on one side of the dining room while more formal dining on the other side. The restaurant is still making upgrades.

Maffeo has incorporated light, healthy cooking to the menu by adding marinated grilled salmon, a grilled rack of lamb, and a light pasta dish - pasta a la Norma, which is rigatoni with roasted and confit Sicilian eggplant, crushed oven-roasted tomato, basil, EVOO and salted ricotta cheese. We're there!

Lucia's original location, which opened in 1977, is at 415 Hanover Street, North End; 617-367-2353.
