Description
Located at the burgeoning culinary hub that is Old Malaya, LUCE borrows its name and inspiration from the worm Light of its imported Pizza wood oven and from the gleaming KL Tower at its doorstep offering a spectacular view to the diners. Italian at heart, LUCE is paying tribute to the rustic character of classic Italian osteria's menus in a contemporary surrounding. At LUCE, integrity of flavours is of paramount importance, as is the emphasis on authenticity and quality ingredients. Pizza experience in Malaysia to a whole new level thanks to Cristian Grandi, Snr. Pizza Chef, from Ferrara Italy, able to provide a menu with over 55 pizzas. Authentic Italian Pizza is the signature at LUCE alongside a menu with the most classic Italian rustic dishes. LUCE Osteria Contemporanea offers a variety of cocktails and wines from the LUCE BAR at the 1st floor, open till late, for a memorable dining experience. At LUCE Osteria, attentive service, quality food and reasonable prices work hand in hand to provide diners with an authentic and fun dining experience.
