Lucile’s approach is similar to its sister restaurant also on Main Street, Lila, focusing on healthy, clean, organic and locally- sourced ingredients, along with plant-based meats and dairy alterna- tives. Popular menu items include the Truffled Mushroom Pizza and ‘The Macho’ Pizza, which features mushroom bacon, coconut bacon, plant-based pepperoni and sunflower sausage. The Tuscan Kale Salad is also a fan favorite.
The wine list boasts a mostly organic selection, with a focus on natural wines. While the design of the restaurant is sleek and mod- ern, the intimate space creates a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere, ideal for an adult-only night on the town.
Lucile offers wine specials on Wednesdays, with half-price bottles of wine under $60. Wednesday through Thursday, from 3 to 5PM., buy one pizza and get the second pizza half off. Specialty week- end pizzas are available on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. For more visit Lucille Pizza & Wine Bar at 1660 Main Street or online at or call (941)-330-0101.
