Luca is a Bar & Kitchen located at Todi Mills, Mumbai.
The restaurant servers Latin American cuisine in a bright colourful ambiance.
It’s menu is divided into three sections, Costal South American, Mexican and Caribbean.
Each section has been given equal emphasis, it includes soup, salads, appetizers, mains and desserts.
So here is what I had –
TAWNY PASSION –
Orange juice based mocktail with star anise and soda.
Citrucy mocktail with a strong punchy star anise flavor.

Expresso coffee and irish whiskey topped with thick cream and ice.
Illy coffee beans were used in the making.
Super strong, well balanced bitter sweet flavour !
