Lucia Ristorante has evolved from a quaint hotel spot into an exciting Italian gastronomy destination in the Makati district. But this promising pace is far from over, as Lucia makes cosmopolitan Italian fine dining more enticing than ever — with the launch of a new and broader array of menu items on top of promotional activities that are lined up for diners.

The preview, experienced via a fun cocktail event in partnership with Hotel Celeste and Best Western Boracay Tropics, was led by Chef Davide Lombardi, Executive Chef of Lucia Ristorante, who showcased his culinary flair.  Featured signature specialties include Norwegian Smoked Salmon Mousse, Meatballs Lucia with Crunchy Italian Cheese, Cream of Assorted Mushroom Crostini, Roasted Chicken Salad with Balsamic Caramel, Panacotta, Tartufati, Quattro Formagi Napoletana Pizza, and Linguini Al Ragu Di Mar.


Cheers to more

Created as an intimate dining space where Makati locals and guests can relax, enjoy wine, and partake classic Italian cuisine, Lucia Ristorante is the place to be.

“We want to tap into new and more diverse dining segments, like customers who travel outside the Makati district to eat at our restaurant. To do so, we have to offer something that’s not only different from the rest, but one that’s only found and best experienced here at Lucia,” said Christine Bautista, Brand Marketing Manager of Lucia.

“While our authentic Italian dishes remain the major draw for our dining clientele, we want to emphasize that here in Lucia, we ensure each dining experience to be pleasant and satisfying. We do so by considering all quality aspects, from presenting interesting food and wine choices, an appealing ambiance, to excellent customer service. This is the genuine passion and core concept that defines Lucia Ristorante,” Bautista added.

For patrons who love to dine, wine, and unwind on Fridays, there’s the Aperitivo, or “Italy’s Happiest Hour” promo. For a minimum P300 consumable on beverage menu –- that includes Italian house wine, cocktails, and beer customers can get unlimited access to a cocktail area where there are cheeses, hams, canapès, breads and chips from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Meanwhile, bring friends and family together and experience Italy’s finest bounties in a new light with the Chef’s Table Menu Package. A special, by reservation-only package ideal for meetings and small gatherings like intimate birthday dinners, guests (group of 10 persons) can partake a pre-selected menu paired with wines.
