With great knowledge comes the ability to simplify. Sharing different food cultures means this deceptive simplification creates new and exciting dishes. The cooking at Osteria Lucio brings together new marriages of butchery, vegetables and fruits, all of which have made a long journey from planting to the kitchen. This is slow-grown food from the Italian and Irish terroir, slow-grown so you can taste the layers of flavours. New food friendships have been made with jewel coloured Italian vegetables and Irish grown greens, all from our regular suppliers. (BTW Be careful what you say about vegetables, the suppliers could be sitting at the next table, they often join us for a drink).
If you thought you knew all about pizza dough, we’ve news for you: this is the first time our lunch-friendly risen dough pizza bases have been made in Ireland. The recipe combines simple ingredients in a technique that takes considerable patience. The process creates a pizza base which is gentler on the digestion and tastes so good we’ll be serving it naked too.
