About Luca Restaurant


Serving authentic Italian dishes made from seasonal British ingredients, Luca is a must for lovers of Italian cuisine. Located in Clerkenwell, between Farringdon and Barbican stations, this upmarket restaurant can be hired for private dinners and boasts three stunning indoor and outdoor spaces to choose from.  

Luca offers two main private dining rooms: The Garden Room and The Pasta Room. Despite its name, the former is a cosy indoor space overlooking the restaurant’s open kitchen and with a capacity of up to eight people. It’s been styled to evoke the feel of a traditional southern Italian garden with foliage sprawled across the walls, plants and shaped trees in terracotta pots, a round mirror and a garden lantern hanging above the table in the centre of the room

The Pasta Room, as the name suggests, is where the restaurant’s chefs make fresh pasta every day. This space has been designed to replicate the look and feel of a rustic Italian kitchen, with free-form wooden shelves lined with pots and crockery and a central farmhouse-style wooden table with space for up to 10 guests. Both The Pasta Room and The Garden Room are available to book for lunch and dinner.  

If you’d like to enjoy a private dinner under the sky (or stars), then Luca’s terrace is a beautiful foliage-filled space that is bound to take guests’ breath away. Surrounded by olive trees and jasmine, boasting a large stone fireplace and with exposed brick walls enclosing the area, the terrace is about as close to a traditional Italian garden as you can get in London. Whether it’s a sun-soaked lunch or a cosy dinner illuminated by a roaring fire, any occasion held here is sure to be extra special. Hire the space for up to 20 people.  

The team will help you design a bespoke menu for your private dinner, from feasting to tasting options, to ensure the food and drink is just as perfect as the room your event is held in.

Testimonials For Luca Restaurant

A wedding reception on the TerraceSEPTEMBER, 2023

We hosted our wedding reception dinner on the terrace at Luca on a Saturday evening in September, after getting married at Islington Town Hall. It was the best choice we made out of everything we organised for the day! The events team were professional and accommodating, the food and wine was exceptional and the atmosphere really lovely! With the terrace roof open, the greenery and the fire and candles lit, it felt like we had left London altogether. All our guests loved it. Above everything I have to thank Luca for being so flexible with our group’s dietary requirements. As mainly vegetarians, vegans and pescatarians, we knew we weren’t an easy group to juggle - but the kitchen catered for every single person’s different preferences and the waiting staff made serving it look effortless. It was a costly option out of all the venues in London we compared, but the best spent money in a long time.
