A traditional Italian restaurant in the heart of Kirkwall, Lucano serves pizza and pasta throughout the day, and always seems to be busy. Open for breakfast rolls and coffee, there’s soup and ciabatta toasties at lunchtimes, with takeaway options for those heading back to their desk. The a la carte menu includes pizza and homemade pasta served in a variety of styles, from the classic Bolognese and carbonara to house specials like rigatoni di pavia – spicy sausage, garlic, chilli, tomato, bechamel sauce and fresh basil. Orkney salmon, cod and squid feature in the fish dishes, while the antipasti covers the spectrum from tomato and mozzarella salad to bresaola with rocket and parmesan.
