British seasonal ingredients through an Italian lens


The restaurant serves high-quality ingredients from around the British Isles and Italy. Seasonal produce such as shrimps from Morecambe Bay, grouse from Yorkshire, langoustines from Scotland and cheeses from across the country. It is food that observes the established traditions of Italian cooking, but breaks the rules a little.

Open for lunch and dinner.

Press & Accolades

“Negroni, please – God that’s good, best in London probably, give us another – and a plate of those parmesan fries …”
Giles Coren, The Times

“From the airy and marble-clad bar section, to the lofty dining room, with deco-rustic fittings and billowy drapes, and the faded-palazzo loos, all burnished mirrors and taupe plaster, it’s a handsome spot.”
Time Out

“[Luca] hasn’t just the makings of a hit, but of a classic.”
Marina O’Loughlin, The Guardian
