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.

Other than a slight hiccup with 1 of our entries, the meal, service & dinning experience was excellent

My favourite London restaurant for every reason. Perfect as always.

The design and atmosphere is great. Dishes were presented beautifully and tasted equally good. Staff were friendly, but I felt we were a bit rushed to eat (being asked a few times whether they can clear the table when there was plenty of food left). The bill also came without us even asking. I don't recall there being a time constraint on the booking but if there was, it would have been nice if they told us before hand.

Good Italian wine selection. Food was extremely well made. Mushroom antipasti and steak were the highlights for me. It’s on the pricey side but quality of food and service were excellent.

The food was magnificent. I had the scallops or an appetiser and the trout as a main. The flavour profile is incredibly flavourful but simultaneously well balanced. Staff are incredibly attentive as you can normally come to expect when visiting a Michelin. We had a magnificent time.

Overall, a very enjoyable launch. Warm welcome, they were able to accommodate us in the main restaurant (see below) where the ambience was great - although I liked the feel of the bar too - the food and service were excellent.,
