KUALA LUMPUR – 22 August 2022: Italian restaurant Luce Osteria Contemporanea has once again gained international recognition when it was listed 44th in the 50 Top Pizza Asia-Pacific 2022, the highest ranking for a Malaysian restaurant and one of only two restaurants from the country to make the list.
Before this, 50 Top Pizza, the most influential guide in the sector, had named Luce on the list of the top ten pizzerias in Asia in 2020. The Asia-Pacific list now considers Asia, Japan and Oceania as one zone. Located at the burgeoning culinary hub of Old Malaya, Luce borrows its name and inspiration from the warm lights of imported Pizza wood-fire oven and the bright lights of KL Tower at its very doorstep. This acclaimed pizzeria offers a wide range of 60 homemade Italian Pizzas alongside a menu complete with classic and rustic Italian dishes.
Luce, is one of the restaurants under the PETRA Cucina umbrella, the Food and Beverage arm of the PETRA Group. Other restaurants under PETRA Cucina are high-end Italian eateries Zenzero Restaurant and Wine Bar, and Roberto’s 1020 Osteria.
Roberto Guiati, the Chief Executive of PETRA Cucina who hails from Ferrera, Italy, said the listing was an honour. “We feel so thankful for this recognition and are highly encouraged by it. The recognition has also given us great passion to continue to give a wonderful dining experience for all our customers at Luce Osteria.”
“Thank you to 50 Top Pizza and of course a big thank you to our beloved customers for your great support. We look forward to serving you only the best,” said Guiati who is also the President of PETRA Lifestyle.
Management of 50 Top Pizza for the Asia Pacific region was entrusted to Vittoria Dell’Anna. Together with 4 local coordinators, she created a team of 150 inspectors that allowed a more thorough supervision and inspection of this geographic area.
