Nominated for: BEST Italian
Frank Bonanno's heritage is in this restaurant. Named for his son Luca (whose portrait adorns the dining room), Luca d'Italia pays homage to the kind of food Bonanno grew up with—from the finest restaurants in New York to his mother's home kitchen in New Jersey . Sure, Zagat's rates it the top Italian restaurant in the western United States, and Gabby Gourmet gives it three pigs with a rocket--but to Bonanno, Luca's a valentine—Italian food the way it ought to be, lovingly prepared, thoughtfully served and thoroughly enjoyed.
