This venue is closed. A well-heeled crosstown cousin of the more casual but spiritually similar Gennaro, which is operated by owner Luca Marcato's best friend, Gennaro Picone. The two worked together at Malvasia, and Luca served as the best man at Gennaro's wedding. Luca is more genteel and sedate (of the restaurants, not the men), with a warm glow about the whole place. What's more, Luca takes reservations, whereas Gennaro is first come, first served. Luca has the better wine list and, food-wise, is both a little more ambitious and a little more expensive.
