The cuisine at Lucciola revolves around a single, unifying concept:

Ingredients matter.

Nestled in NYC’s Upper West Side, the menu features all the classics – tortelloni, tortellini, and tagliatelle all cooked to delicious perfection. 

What elevates our dishes from a meal to an experience – from a meal to art – is the dedication to quality embraced by our Executive Chef, Michele Casadei Massari.

At Lucciola, every locally-sourced vegetable, fresh-caught piece of seafood, and dry-aged piece of wagyu is hand-selected by Chef Massari. 

Lucciola (“Firefly”) is a bright light in the darkness beckoning to food aficionados of all backgrounds.
