LUCCIOLA, the new Italian restaurant on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, pays homage to the city of Bologna with its cuisine and its cinematic history in a unique and exciting atmosphere.
The restaurant takes inspiration from the film “Festa di Laurea,” (Graduation Party), for its dishes, atmosphere, and the overall concept. This incredible space reflects the nostalgic and romantic mood of Bologna that was depicted, especially the famous courtyard scene where the simple illumination was reminiscent of fireflies. LUCCIOLA (firefly in Italian), is located down the street from Central Park. 621 Amsterdam Ave
