Available now, the exclusive Truffle Season menu features three brand new dishes.
Referred to as the “diamonds of the kitchen,” truffles are famous for their luxurious and distinct flavors. Luci is embracing truffle season with a menu led by Chef Pesenti, where guests can explore the exquisite fungi with every bite. Truffle lovers can rejoice in the earthy notes of Luci’s truffle dishes, guaranteed to elevate the food senses and delight the palate for a unique culinary experience.
- Gnocchi with Black Truffle, Butter, and Grana Padano Cheese, made with homemade Gnocchi and a creamy buttery sauce, tossed with Grana Padano Cheese.
- Pizza Napoli Gorgonzola with Taleggio and Black Truffle. Luci’s 48 hours proof Napoli Pizza base is balanced with a blend of Gorgonzola and Taleggio Cheese, both from the Lombardy Region in North Italy. Taking the sweet taste from the Taleggio and the salty end of Gorgonzola, guests can indulge in a covered layer of extra thin black truffle and a splash of truffle oil.
- Wild Mushroom and Black Truffle Risotto with “Imbriago Cheese”. A homage to Executive Chef Andrea Pesenti’s hometown of Verona, using Vialone Nano Rice that is perfect for a creamy but still al dente Risotto. It features Cep Mushrooms and Scottish Girolles, all lightly tossed with garlic to make a perfect autumn dish. All finished with a generous amount of butter and “Imbriago” cheese, from the Veneto Region.
To complement Luci’s truffle dishes, guests can toast with the signature truffle-infused Pink Truffle Sour cocktail, designed by Luci’s resident mixologist, Nicaras Verones.
Inspired by the classic sour, he uses Grappa Tosolini infused with truffle, Poggiotondo Chianti Classico, Lemon juice, Egg White, and Simple Syrup finished with a shaving of truffle.
Located on Covent Garden’s Long Acre, Luci is London’s first Italian Dining Bakery. Showcasing an 18-metre long ‘bancone’ counter with a selection of tasty ‘al forno’ baked goods, freshly made on the premises in Luci’s ‘forno’ (ovens). Guests can take away or eat in with a sit-down menu of Italian classics served upstairs.
For something sweet, guests can choose from a range of Homemade gelato, sorbet, and cakes, all fresh and available throughout the day. Luci’s kitchen is masterminded by Executive Chef Andrea Pesenti, formerly Executive Chef with Princi.
