What makes La Luciana stands out from other Italian restaurants is its fond focus on the simple, hearty food of Basilicata, a bleakly beautiful prehistoric region on the ‘boot’ of Italy. Greys and charcoal furnishings is a nod to Basilicata’s caves and canyons, while meeting the modern aesthetics demanded by this quiet part of St Germain des Prés, one of the most up-market areas of Paris. Upon entering La Lucania, diners are met by the owner, the ever-welcoming Giuseppe. A native of Basilicata, he’s exactly who you want to help choose from La Luciana’s excellent menu of full-flavoured fresh pasta, vegetables, veal and grilled seafood.
