Lucana

Restaurant Lucana

Chef Gianno Caruso proves like no other that Italian cuisine is more than pizzas and pastas. At restaurant Lucana in Wanze, Belgium, the chef and his wife, sommelier Isabelle Caruso, have created a place where you can indulge in contemporary Italian gastronomy. Call it “Little Italy”, if you will. Attracting food connoisseurs from near and far, this establishment surely hasn’t gone unnoticed among the critics. In 2016, chef Gianno was named “Italian Chef of the Year” by Gault Millau. Today, his cuisine holds 3 hoods and 15 points from Gault Millau as well as a Bib Gourmand from the Michelin Guide, for the restaurant’s excellent price-pleasure-ratio. You can enjoy the chef’s Italian delights in the elegantly furnished dining room, or outdoors, on the lovely terrace.

Lucana’s cuisine

At restaurant Lucana, chef Gianni Caruso pays a tasty homage to Italian tradition. He does so by retaining the spirit of the traditional recipe while adding a modern, personal twist. His Sicilian version of couscous is a great example of this. On the menu, you’ll regularly find great classics such as the chef’s tagliolini with truffle. But also dishes like beef tenderloin with artichokes, grenailles and strong garlic and rosemary jus. For those with a sweet tooth, there are plenty of delicious dessert suggestions. The wine list features various interesting Italian wines that excellently complement the chef’s critically-acclaimed cuisine. The restaurant’s vinotheque is extensive and sommelier Isabelle Caruso ensures great wine pairing that will beautifully complete your culinary journey at Lucana.

Wanze area

Restaurant Lucana is located in Wanze, a municipality in Wallonia, Belgium. If you wish to explore the area, we recommend visiting the city of Huy (3 km), Liège (36 km) or Namur (30 km). In the city of Liège you’ll find many interesting sights like the Fort de Lantin, which is one of the twelve historic forts that were built around Liège, Belgium, in the late 19th century. The Grand Curtius is also worth a visit. This architectural highlight houses a museum with fascinating art, artifacts and antiquities.
