Brand-New Eatery in North Town Center

Meet Luca, a brand-new restaurant from the family-oriented team at Lisabella’s Bistro next door! Operated by Kris and Lisa Amundsen, the restaurant will open on the green at North Town Center opposite Lisabella's. Construction is almost complete, with a thoughtfully designed kitchen and interiors under way!

                                                                                                           Luca is under construction at Cinnamon Shore North.

Eclectic Mix of International Flavors

This lively eatery celebrates Spanish, Mediterranean, and Latin flavors in the steak, lamb, quail, and seafood—think chimichurri, charred lemon, garlic, and pickled poblano—alongside a tequila bar and Old World wines from Spain and South America.

Over time the concept evolved from authentic Latin cuisine to an eclectic mix, according to Kris. Quality meats and seafood will be a hallmark, along with authentic flavor profiles that contrast the menu at neighboring Lisabella's, where French cooking methods and flavor profiles reign.

Final menu and designer interiors are under way so that Luca can open later this year! Look for curved booth seating, a pink-and-green palette, lush plants, and a pink bar! Nationally known designer Paige Schnell of Tracey Interiors in Florida is executing an interiors plan dreamed of and envisioned by Lisa. "It's gonna be fun and lively," Kris says.

Spanish & Latin American Mood & Flair

Kris describes Luca as a spot you’d find in Madrid, Barcelona or Miami. 

“It’s going to be the coolest restaurant in Nueces County! Luca has been a passion and vision for us a long time.”—Owner Kris Amundsen Coming Soon
