About Luci

Celebrating Melbourne’s history of Italian immigrants and its evolution into a cosmopolitan culinary city, Luci is a contemporary Australian restaurant housed within the grand hall of the historic Equity Chambers Building.

Architecture

Luci means ‘lights’ in Italian, which befits the natural light-filled space of this airy heritage-listed dining room occupies. Therefore, Luci is pronounced as ‘Loo-CHEE’. The sound is always soft and more palatal with the letter ‘c’ is followed by an ‘i’.

Adding light to Melbourne’s proud, Italian-influenced dining heritage, Luci’s philosophy focuses as much on its modern Australian, produce-driven repasts as it does on the people who walk through its heritage façade on Bourke Street.

History

The locale’s namesake, Roman leader Lucias Lucullus – affectionately nicknamed ‘Luci’ – became so well recognised throughout Italy for his love of lavish banquets that the term ‘Lucullan’ is today used to describe experiences that are languid, luxurious or gourmet.
