Trattoria Lucca

41-A Bogard St. Downtown

Sienna’s star chef Ken Vedrinski teased us with rumors of a new restaurant downtown, and we finally got it this year with Trattoria Lucca. The fact that it’s located in a less-than-desirable part of town hasn’t kept anyone away — months later, you’ve still got to plan in advance if you want a table. Serving up modern Italian fare with Vedrinski’s signature flair, the place is surprisingly affordable — most entrées will run you less than $20. And the traditional-style Sunday Suppers are not to be missed.
