Lucia opened nine months ago in Durham's West Village. It's owned by the restaurant group that owns Vivace, Coquette and Chow in Raleigh. But Lucia is a more casual restaurant with a greater emphasis on small plates in keeping with the current trend for sharing.

Chef Matt Greiner creates an extensive selection of antipasti that includes tuna crudo with jalapeño agrodolce, a burrata with pistachio genovese and a drizzle of 12-year-old balsamic vinegar. Homemade pastas like risotto with scallops, sweet peas and summer squash; pappardelle with wild boar ragu; potato gnocchi with wild mushrooms, marsala-rosemary sugo, and fried Tuscan kale, entrees such as pork belly-wrapped pork roast; osso buco milanese; a daily changing whole fish preparation and Neapolitan style pizzas baked in a wood-fired oven will satisfy any pallet.

Lucia is located in the former Pop's space with an inviting casual cosmopolitan look. The newly built bar offers craft cocktails, barrel-aged Negroni, draft beers including rotating selections on nitro, and an exclusively Italian list of over 350 wines stored in temperature-controlled wine cabinets.
