At the Taverna Luciana, one can taste flavors which are difficult to find elsewhere. Very popular are the bucatino con il coniglio all’ischitana (bucatino pasta with rabbit) and the excellent Genovese made following to the recipe of the 1700s.

Taverna Luciana is also famous for its pizza. The dough, made with a blend of three flours, is highly digestible. It is obtained with mother yeast and it is left to raise at a controlled temperature for 48 to 72 hours.

It is clear that here, the flavours of the past can be experienced. Real emotions for the palate
