About

Lucia Ristorante is a gem of a restaurant tucked in the Litchfield Hills of Connecticut, in New Milford.

Owner and head chef, Antonio Caldareri has brought the flavors of Northern and Southern Italy to small town Connecticut. With Italian parents, his mom from the North and dad from the South, Chef Tony creates dishes that are made with fresh ingredients and will please any member of your family.

Chef Tony studied at the Culinary Institute of Montreal and has worked as a chef for more than 25 years at the finest establishments. His dream of opening his very own restaurant came true in 2007 and he has since been providing the local residents and travelers with fresh authentic Italian dishes.

Chef Tony is a family man, spending time with his wife, Renee, and children Antonio, Jr. and Gabriella when not at the restaurant. Naming the restaurant after his grandmother, Lucia, Chef Tony will make you feel like a part of the family with his warm welcomes and frequent visits to the dining room.

The intimate space and delicious fresh menu, make Lucia the best restaurant in the area!

Lucia also offers a full bar, extensive wine list, and banquet and catering services for your special occasions.

Buon appetito!
