A cozy restaurant that takes its inspiration from a quiant old town in Tuscany.
Tucked down the winding back streets of Sukhumvit Soi 65, Lucca takes over the quiet space where neighborhood Vietnamese restaurant Saigon Rimsai used to sit.
Here, the owners draws inspiration from their regular trips to Lucca, a quiant old town in Italy's Tuscany region.
Now decked out with a dark, Tuscan-style ceiling and plenty of starched white tablecloths, it serves a menu of classic Italian dishes from antipasti and pastas to hearty meats, as well as a few French favorites like duck confit (B650).
The chef, Hee Chanyadee, comes from a big hotel background (past experience includes the Shangri-La, Sofitel So and The Sokhothai) but here goes in for clean and simple plates at this new operation, like gnocchi with sauteed Alaskan crab meat (B480), lamb fillet with ratatouille consommé (B320) and warm goat cheese terrine with smoked salmon (B350). For dessert, don’t miss the tiramisu (B220).
There's plenty on the drinks side, too, with old and new world wines from Italy, France, California, New Zealand and Australia (priced from B1,500/bottle), plus mocktails like Lucca Blossom (monin elderflower syrup, mint, lime and soda, B150).
