Enoteca da Luca Old Street 

Da Luca

Another Italian opening this month is Enoteca da Luca in Old Street, which already has sites in Devonshire Square, Guildhall, Mayfair and St Paul’s. The biggest site to date, running the front of house is Max Sali, formerly of Locanda Locatelli and Tinello.

Believing that “piccolo e bello” (small is beautiful) in the kitchen, head chef Claudio Illuminati of Tom Aikens fame, cooks fish carbonara with grated egg; ginger and an orange infused rabbit ragu; wild boar pappadelle; charred octopus with slow cooked spiced tomatoes and roasted artichoke, burrata with honeycomb and small Italian doughnuts filled with foie gras, topped with sour berry jam. Wines hail from the length of Italy’s boot, including Tuscany, Alto Adige, Friuli, Piedmont and Puglia.
