On the second floor of Smolensky Passage is Luciano, a true ode to Italian flavours by chef and restaurateur Konstantin Ivlev. This elegant restaurant with comfortable leather chairs offers a seasonal Mediterranean menu of baked pizzas that are among the best in Moscow, along with fresh pasta and generous meat dishes.
For starters, try some rosemary olfish (270 RUB) or bruschetta with salmon and mascarpone (420 RUB). Then, choose a famous Luciano pizza, such as shrimp and cherry tomato (650 RUB). You can also try the flambéed wolffish, the lamb chops, or, perhaps, the fettuccine with salmon and red caviar. In true casual Italian style, Luciano welcomes you with its cosy atmosphere of raw brick walls, polished wood panelling, open kitchen, and a good selection of wines.
