THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Luca's of Greenwich Restaurant Review

: Luca's of Greenwich is owned by Luca Gabriele, who was a chef at Manero's steakhouse for many years prior to opening Luca's. The two dining rooms, appropriately named the Fireside and Victorian, are charming and bright, decorated in pastels and florals, a refreshing alternative to the traditional dark leather bound interiors typical of steakhouses. Diners may start their meal with buttery garlic bread, deep-fried zucchini and heaps of fried onions. Gabriele learned the business from his mentor, the late Nick Manero, and the quality of the dishes prove that he was a good student, especially with his preparation of Ch√Ęteaubriand for two which is enough to feed a party of six. Ditto for his New York cut T-bone and sirloin for two. Don't overlook his Italian specialties though, such as filet of sole francese, chicken francese or chicken Marsala. The veal Parmigiana is first-rate, and a single portion can easily satiate three.
