Metro Manila · Lucia Ristorante
Hotel Celeste takes diners into the heart of Italy with Lucia Ristorante.
Lucia Ristorante features authentic Italian cuisine prepared by chef Davide Lombardi of Lombardi's authentic Italian fame.
Diners can expect more meat offerings and a wider range of premium Italian wines, served in a semi-fine dining environment.
Among its must-tries are bistecca di manzo arrosto, spaghetti "Lucia", orata alla pugliese, to name a few.
"When the invitation came from the owners of Hotel Celeste (the mother-and-daughter tandem of Cely and Tricia Sarabia), I immediately thought that the dishes that should be served in a fabulous hotel like this should also exude the same elegance and flavor," says Lombardi.
The name of the restaurant came from the chef's very own mother. “It is my mother’s name, Lucia, and this is my way of honoring and thanking her, for passing on to me the passion of cooking authentic Italian meals,” he says.
