Luca’s Restaurant will officially open this Thursday at 5pm

Family and friends and all those who were involved in the work and décor in Luca’s Restaurant and Takeaway, Canal Road gathered this evening for a soft opening and food tasting.

The official opening will take place this Thursday at 5pm. Brothers Luke and Caine Johnston (sons of Vivienne and Clive) will perform the opening of their new premises.

Fire & Slice Woodfire Pizza, Letterkenny will roll out a brand refresh in its new premises on Canal Road – repositioning themselves as a ‘Family Restaurant’ and placing a stronger emphasis on its core products like pizza, pasta and gourmet burgers under the Luca’s brand.

Brother’s Luke and Caine (Luca’s Restaurant & Takeaway) are typical of a new breed of young Irish chefs and front-of-house professionals who are putting their hard-earned cash, and their reputations, on the line and opening their own restaurant.

The interior is beautiful and tastefully decorated by Interior Designer Gina McGarvey who did a fantastic job.

Luke Johnston, owner-operator, said: “We are very excited to be opening Luca’s and adding to the great food scene in Letterkenny. We are humbled and appreciative of the response we have received from our customers and are just as excited about continuing to serve up some the best food in Letterkenny. Luke continued “We may be operating under a new name but customers can be guaranteed of the same great pizza, served from our popular woodfire oven.” Wishing the boys every success and everyone is welcome along to the official opening tomorrow evening at 5pm.
