Dubai-: Lucia’s is the gorgeous new Italian restaurant that has taken Dubai by storm. Located in Address Sky View, the space is visually stunning, boasting the dreamiest Capri aesthetic and the food is every bit is fabulous. The authentic yet playful new menu will be lovingly managed by Head Chef Andrea Zurru who is a devotee and advocate of the food of his beloved homeland. In his new role as Lucia’s Head Chef, he brings a wealth of experience and bubbling passion to every dish he creates.
Andrea’s journey with Italian cuisine started in the beautiful province of Cagliari, where he spent his early childhood years helping his aunt make ravioli, wine, bread, and other famous Sardinian delicacies from scratch. It’s fair to say food has been part of Andrea’s life from the beginning. His education started from childhood with his family as his teachers.
Moving onto formal culinary education, Andrea graduated from the prestigious hospitality school of Cagliari at 18 and started working at various 5-star hotels of the famous Sardinian Costa Smeralda. His most notable experience was at La Guardiola Restaurant in Castelsardo when he worked as Head Chef, also participating in a cooking competition finishing second after Chef Roberto Petza who led a Michelin-starred restaurant.
He then set my sights on Australia as he knew that the food scene was thriving there and was lucky to learn from great chefs from all around the world. He then moved to London where he met his great friend and current Executive Chef of 7Management Group Enrico Paiola. Thanks to him he travelled to Dubai and started working at Lucia’s where he now assumes the role as Head Chef.
Chef Andrea Zurru says, “Together with the rest of my amazing team, we are looking forward to introducing a variety of mouth-watering Italian flavors to the local food scene that complement the amazing aesthetic and unforgettable atmosphere at Lucia’s. We want you to taste our passion in every delicious bite.”
