Kosher dining's inexorable march to sophistication continues with Luciana, an Emek Refaim kosher dairy Italian restaurant housed in a classic 19th century German Colony building and managed by the culinary minds behind the nearby Joy. Main courses draw heavily on simple Southern Italian preparations of local fish and a robust lineup of pasta (fettucini, pappardelle, tortellini, ravioli, gnocchi and risotto), along with specialty hand-tossed thin crust pizzas and salads. All pizza, pasta, bread and other baked goods are prepared fresh onsite, and, rare among the city's Italian restaurants, Luciana boasts an impressively extensive daily breakfast menu.
The wine list is brief but impressive, culled from both the big names in kosher wine (the Golan Heights Winery) and the boutique vintners in the Judean Hills who have begun to cause a stir among oenophiles. The decor also attracts attention - elegant lamps shine down on intimate booths and intricately patterned tile floors, a cozy meeting of modernism and classic bistro ambiance. Diners can also sit in a courtyard graced by a 300 year old eucalyptus tree, or on a wooden deck with authentic Italian flooring.
Breakfasts and brunches can be served for up to 100 people for special events. There is a VIP room on the second floor for events, with the option of projecting presentations.
Luciana now has Kosher Mehadrin certification.
