Sister restaurant to the Michelin-starred The Clove Club, Luca Restaurant serves artisan Italian cuisine made with a selection of the finest seasonal British produce. Housed in an elegantly restored listed building, the interior features chic retro detailing, a bustling open kitchen, and a separate bar area serving small plate dishes and freshly shaken cocktails.

A selection of light nibbles to start on the Luca bar menu include small plates of Italian salami, and stuffed fried olives, moving on to fresh seafood delicacies like Cornish pollock alla puttanesca. On the main restaurant menu, there are indulgent starters such as tartare of Hereford beef with crisp potato and riseley cheese, along with other British treats like spring lamb, Cornish monkfish with fennel, and English spinach.

For pudding, try the sumptuous rum baba with blood orange and Ivy House crème fraîche, or a classic cheeseboard with a selection of British and Italian cheeses. The bar at Luca Restaurant in Farringdon mixes up inventive cocktails as well as well-known classics, and the wine list boasts several celebrated vintages.

A delightful showcasing of Italian dining made possible with fine British produce, Luca Restaurant in London is a 6-minute walk from Farringdon Tube Station.

    Lunch at Luca was lovely. We sat in the sunny conservatory at the rear of the restaurant which was very pleasant. We chose the £65 fixed price menu and had a delicious selection of food. The wine was reasonably priced and the staff were very friendly.

    Not authentic but they said they serve British-Italian food. I still like the Italian style of cooking pasta & really disappointed with their Chitarra nera with mussels & preserved lemon. Some dishes we tried were great like Parmasean fries, crisp raw vegetables with warm bag a cauda. Turbot with spider crab sauce can be a lot better from what we have experienced that day. The garden dining space was very nice but I didn’t manage to dine out there. Fairly expensive for the quality of those dishes. Staff not really that sincere.

    I’ve eaten at Luca before at lunchtime and enjoyed it. This was an evening visit and the service was extremely slow. 2 hours for 2 courses and the restaurant wasn’t really busy. Food was fine when it arrived without being amazing for the price.
