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.

Luca Bar

Franciacorta, Negronis, Grappa & freshly shaken cocktails. Things to share – Parmesan fries, salumi, pasta. Take a seat in one of our iconic booths or at our marble bar for a drink, light bite or to settle in for the night.


Dine al fresco on our secluded,
foliage-filled terrace, surrounded by olive trees and jasmine.
Whether bathed in sunshine for lunch or warmed by the open fire for dinner,
it’s the perfect spot for any occasion all year round.

Currently reserved for private events for up to 18 guests; email our team at for more information or book below.

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
