Luciano's launches third restaurant
Woking Shopping, which comprises The Peacocks Centre and Wolsey Place, has announced the opening of Italian restaurant Luciano's – the restaurant chain founded by Luciano Pierre White, son of renowned British chef Marco Pierre White.
The 4,100sq ft venue has 62 covers over two floors at 53-55 Commercial Way. The new site is the third countrywide for the brand, joining existing restaurants in Dorchester and Exeter.
The concept of Luciano's is to sell good quality food, with dishes cooked the same way as when Luciano worked in Michelin star restaurants but offered at a more affordable price. Instead of costing £40-50, for example, dishes cost around £12.50 with a complementary glass of wine or beer.
The menu features classic and hearty Italian food, using fresh local produce and Italian suppliers. Core offerings remain largely the same as the brand's other restaurants, including the classic meatball starter dish and ragù bolognese.
Councillor Ayesha Azad, leader of Woking Borough Council, comments: "It is excellent news for Woking that such a high-quality restaurant as Luciano's has make its Surrey debut here. It is a real vote of confidence in the town that further bolsters Woking as a dining destination and adds to the many reasons why Woking is an attractive place to live and work."
