The popular restaurant offers the pure flavors of an authentic Italian trattoria in a casual, modern setting. Cantinetta Luca’s ingredients are always fresh and seasonal; presentations are rich and rustic. Executive Chef Jason Balestrieri, who oversees Cantinetta Luca, sources the best available ingredients from local farmers, fishmongers and purveyors. Many items on the menu are made in-house including the breads, many cheeses, artisanal salumi and fresh pastas. Specialties include wood-oven baked pizza, as well as a wide array of antipasti, whole fire-roasted fish and grilled meats, served family-style.

The restaurant’s wine list, exclusively Italian, offers an extensive list of hard to find and reasonably priced wines. Cantinetta Luca also offers a full bar selection.
