A restaurant, a pizzeria and a bar all in one – in short, that sums up casual Italian joint, Luka. Offering something different to the high density of Korean restaurants along Tanjong Pagar Road, Luka makes an excellent stop for Italian pizzas, pastas and desserts executed with a Japanese flair, right in the heart of Singapore. Have your fill of those, accompanied with a classic selection of wines from some of Italy’s finest vineyards. It’s all about treating yourself right, starting with Luka. Book ahead now at this Tanjong Pagar gem to avoid missing out.
“It’s going to be awesome”, says the white LED lettering as soon as you enter Tanjong Pagar hotspot Luka, and we wholeheartedly agree. After all, what’s not to like about an Italian restaurant, a pizzeria and a bar all rolled into one? This latest brainchild of Head Chef Takashi Okuno dishes out contemporary Italian pizzas, pastas, desserts and more in a laid-back setting along Tanjong Pagar Road – and they carry a hint of Japanese influences that reflect his culinary heritage.
Whet your appetite with starters like the Luka housemade wagyu bresaola – a 30-gram portion of dry aged beef ham – or, if you prefer, a selection of hot and cold cicchetti including the duo of smoked egg, wagyu and uni; as well as the gamberi (grilled prawns, garlic, coriander seed and curry leaf). Moving on to the carb-heavy essentials, the Mare pizza is a dream come true for seafood lovers with its squid, prawn and shellfish toppings; while the plin agnolotti (ravioli with Piedmontese veal) is a must-try – and a rare find, at that, in Singapore. Finally, don’t forget to round off your visit to Luka with fine desserts such as the signature tiramisu or the chocolate salted egg lava cake, washed down with your choice of wine from one of Italy’s many esteemed wineries. Located in the central district of Tanjong Pagar, Luka is a shining star among the Italian restaurants in Singapore, and we highly recommend that you reserve ahead to snag the best seats.
Great food! Had the pizza and the steak and it was amazing. The staff was friendly and really indulged us. Definitely recommended if you’re looking for a place with amazing steak.
Food was good and pricing reasonable. Squid ink pasta and the saffron seafood fish wth broth was excellent. Service could be better if the servers were more responsive. Hard to catch the servers attention.
We had mushroom soup and Menta Ikura pasta. Great food with reasonable price. Service was also good. It is good that they take a reservation for lunch.
Unable to find my booking via Quandoo, but still able to get a table, food are very delicious, love the burata and Kagoshima waygu beef
Good and attentive service. Went there for lunch/dinner at 1600hrs where there were not many other customers, but they still provided us with their full attention.
