Meet us where old-world charm is exuded

Caffe De Luca captures the essence of an outdoor cafe in Europe. Whether you sit indoors or on the rooftop terrace, you will feel like you're sipping your wine on an Italian plaza.

From the Venetian lanterns to the wrought-iron rails leading to the second floor and the indoor fireplace, this restaurant is the definition of old-world charm.

Try the Lamb Osso Buco (braised lamb shank, parmesan mashed potatoes, and vegetables) or the Chicken Marsala (sauteed chicken, mushrooms, and marsala wine over fettuccine).

Opt for the Eggplant Parmesan (breaded and fried eggplant layered with mozzarella, parmesan, and Pomodoro sauce over penne pasta) or the Truffle Gnocchi (creamy parmesan sauce, truffle oil, and fresh herbs).

The pizzas are pretty special here. We love the Abruzzo with pepperoni, green olives, shredded mozzarella, and garlic.
