As I stepped into Luciano by Gino D’Campo on The Strand with my cousin on June 6, I knew that I was in for an evening of pure elegance and decadence. From the moment we arrived, the staff provided us with a warm and efficient welcome, relieving us of our bags and coats and ensuring we were comfortably settled at our table. With menus in hand, we took a few moments to peruse the extensive drink selection.

I opted for the intriguing Zero If My Grandmother Had Wheels mocktail, a delightful blend of watermelon, raspberries, grapefruit, and lime. Its sweet and refreshing flavors were simply irresistible. My cousin, Brooke, chose the Zero Trouble In Paradise, a tropical concoction bursting with passion fruit, mango, pineapple, and lime.

The menu at Luciano by Gino D’Campo offered a plethora of authentic Italian dishes, enticing us to explore its culinary delights. We decided to venture out of our comfort zones and ordered the Costine di Miale, Tuscan-style barbecue pork ribs, as well as the bruschetta con gamberoni. Although our pronunciation of the Italian names was far from perfect, we were determined to fully immerse ourselves in the dining experience.

The Costine di Miale arrived smothered in a mouthwatering, sweet, and sticky sauce that left us craving for more. It was a true feast for the senses as we savored every tender bite. The bruschetta con gamberoni, topped with succulent shrimp, was a perfect combination of flavors and textures.

Throughout the evening, we were treated to a medley of sensations, with each dish and drink exceeding our expectations. Luciano by Gino D’Campo truly delivered a regal dining experience that left us feeling like royalty.
