Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Formerly known as Luca Restaurant, this classic Upper East Side spot has been cooking up Italian cuisine for more than a decade. Start with a complimentary basket of salty fried olives, or share one of the assorted cheese plates ($11–$21). The expansive menu includes both old world favorites—think gnocchi with veal ragu ($15), butternut squash ravioli ($15) and chicken milanese ($21)—and more casual offerings, such as a variety of sandwiches (each $15) and even a burger ($13). Crowd-pleasing desserts like the pear-almond tart ($9), ricotta cheesecake ($9) and tiramisu ($8) round out the meal—and one of their house cocktails certainly wouldn’t hurt, either. Drop by on a Tuesday or Thursday for live jazz featuring a rotating cast of local musicians, or check out the brunch offerings on Saturday and Sunday.
