Chef Gianni Caruso proves like no other that Italian cuisine is more than pizzas and pastas. At restaurant Lucana in Wanze, Belgium, the chef and his wife, sommelier Isabelle Caruso, have created a place where you can indulge in contemporary Italian gastronomy. Call it “Little Italy”, if you will. Attracting food connoisseurs from near and far, this establishment surely hasn’t gone unnoticed among the critics. In 2016, chef Gianno was named “Italian Chef of the Year” by Gault Millau. Today, his cuisine holds 3 hoods and 15 points from Gault Millau as well as a Bib Gourmand from the Michelin Guide, for the restaurant’s excellent price-pleasure-ratio. You can enjoy the chef’s Italian delights in the elegantly furnished dining room, or outdoors, on the lovely terrace.
