Luci, London’s first Italian dining bakery has opened within The Yards, Covent Garden, mirroring the heritage of grand Milanese cafes.
Headed up by Chef Andrea Pesenti, Luci delivers an affordable all-day Italian dining concept for visitors, joining a range of independent restaurants within The Yards.
Delivering a day-to-night offer spread across two floors, the ground floor showcases an assortment of Italian treats, including thin focaccia Genovese, ciabatta, and wood-fired pizza by the slice, alongside homemade gelato, sorbet, and cakes, all available for dine-in or takeaway.
The first floor offers an intimate dining space for guests with up to 96 covers, where an array of Italian classics can be enjoyed, such as melanzane parmigiana, lasagne, and wood-fired pizzas, all using fresh seasonal produce.
