Although Neapolitan in spirit, Lucca Enoteca shares it’s name with the charming Tuscan commune in central Italy. A favourite holiday destination for owners Sherri Singleton and David McKay, Lucca was also the intended name of their first born, should it be a boy. However, blessed instead with a beautiful daughter, Lucca became the namesake of their third restaurant.
Opening our doors in 2007, the concept of Lucca Enoteca was based on many memorable meals eaten in Southern Italy. Wanting to recreate an authentic wood-fire destination, Sherri then spent time in the kitchen with the ‘Maestro of Pizza’, Enzo Coccia at his famous La Notizia pizzeria in Naples. Often sited as serving the best pizza in Italy, Enzo passed on many tips and recipes that are used at Lucca today.
