She’s the Great Aunt of Firefly Neutral Bay’s founder & our figurehead.
Lucetta spent a large part of her life as a cabaret dancer & when she could dance no longer she invested her savings in a modest speakeasy bar in the south of Italy.
Lucetta’s wine bar garnered a reputation not only for the drinks, but for the glowing, warm hospitality. Hospitality so special that her regulars nick-named this favourite place of theirs ‘La Lucciola’ – The Firefly.
A century later we continue an old tradition at our modern day wine bar & restaurant Firefly Neutral Bay. We welcome you to come and share the legacy of good wine, honest sharing food & warm service that shines like its’ namesake.
Word on the street
“YOU’LL LOVE IT If not every bar worth drinking in has to be on the other side of the Harbour Bridge. GO FOR The efficient, well-informed service, extensive wine selection and interesting edibles.”
“It’s no wonder Firefly Neutral Bay is a favourite amongst locals, with its glowing neon pinot noir sign in the window signally you’ve come to the right place to for a great time and most importantly, a great feed.”
