Take the time to read and find out more about us, where we’re from and how we got here
Born in Modena, Italy. My Nonna ran a locanda, which inspired me to start my restaurant career near springs then moved to Durban.
My unique style of food preparation and making home made pasta, is legendary.
I was joined by my son Marco, who opened up Mamma Luciana’s Restaurant on the Berea in 1999.
We later, in 2010 introduced a branch to Glenashley … attached with a deli and coffee shop.
Now you can enjoy my home made pastas in your own home
Mamma Luciana’s is large, colourful and very Italian. This trattoria has a great bar and an open kitchen with aromas sure to whet your appetite.
Al fresco dining on the deck turns to long, lazy lunches and fun-filled dinners with sea-views.
The menu is influenced by Mamma Luciana’s hometown of Modena in Italy and is distinctively Italian.
