British seasonal ingredients through an Italian lens


The restaurant serves high-quality ingredients from around the British Isles and Italy. Seasonal produce such as scallops from Orkney, Hebridean lamb and turbot from Cornwall. It is food that observes the established traditions of Italian cooking, but breaks the rules a little.


Nestled in our corner of Clerkenwell is our terrace hideaway. Elegantly sheltered from the elements: bright and welcoming during the day or candlelit and cosy at night.

Perfect for private hire, our terrace is available for parties from 12 to 20 guests.

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.

Private Dining

We have three private dining spaces; The Terrace for up to 20 guests, The Pasta Room for up to 10, and The Garden Room for up to eight guests.
We can also accommodate parties for up to 14 guests on large tables in our main dining room or up to 100 guests for private hire.

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.”
