London is not short of Italian eateries, from high-end to pasta bars to places you’d take your Nonna/Grandparents …there’s something for everyone. There’s also a place for the non-traditional. The ones who love Italian food and Italian techniques but want to break the tradition a little…for them there’s Luca.
Set in uber trendy Clerkenwell, Luca stands apart. From the warming dark green exterior, to the chic but rustic interiors- it’s a feeling of nostalgia, where you’ll bump into the love of your life and you’ll live your life happily devouring Parmesan fries…unfortunately it didn’t happen to me but you could be the lucky one! ?

Question: May seem random but have you ever wondered what it would be like biting into cheese with a cloud like texture? ☁️
Do me a favour and please order their Parmesan Fries. I promise you they will exceed your expectation and what you image them to be…If I could, I would devour at least 3 portions in one sitting…
Luca is a super charming place, if you’re looking for some drinks at the bar with some nibbles or a sit down meal with friends- there’s something for everyone there. They also offer private dining and the rooms looks lush! ?
I find it really annoying when bar seating is uncomfortable- it’s a waste of some great use of space when regular tables are fully booked. This is not the case at Luca. They have comfortable seating at the bar so you can get your cocktail and pasta fix at the bar ?
