After a year that has restricted us from travelling to the most beautiful destinations in the world, everyone is longing for incredible Italian food and missing the European sun that comes with it. Right at our fingertips, only a 20-minute drive from the CBD, Luciano’s is the saving grace to all your Italian dreams and desires.
In 2019, South Australian’s were introduced to modern Italian dining by the sea, a place that truly thrives in the summer months. Located on the waterfront and surrounded by ocean views, the osteria style venue instantly transports you to the Amalfi Coast.
Tuscan-inspired sandstone tiles, premium marble and pink accents create a bright and warm ambience, while the mouthwatering new menu is just one of the draw cards. Head chef Loris Facciolo and executive chef Adam Swanson have crafted the menu themselves, honing in on their knowledge and expertise of Italian cuisine.
Using fresh and local South Australian produce, begin your dining experience with Beef Carpaccio with nduja, truffle aioli, pecorino and parsley, followed by the vegetarian-friendly Penne Alla Norma with eggplant, tomato, pine nuts, basil and ricotta Salata. A delectable selection of wood-oven pizzas is also available to order. Finish your meal with traditional Italian desserts with a twist: Cannoli Sicialiani made with ricotta, chocolate and pistachio or Tiramisu with savoiardi, mascarpone and coffee.
If there is something that Italians feel passionately about, it’s food and sharing it with their loved ones. Order a selection of dishes and get a chance to taste everything Luciano’s has to offer.
Pair your meals with the extensive wine list, which includes reds from Tuscany and the best South Australian Riesling, or if you’re in the mood for something authentic order the renowned and beloved Aperol Spritz.
