Our philosophy has always been to focus on flavour and using fresh local ingredients whenever possible, sometimes from our own small farm. Living in the Annapolis Valley provides us with access to some of the finest products anywhere and also our wonderful customers who always inspire us to be our best.
Lucky Italiano was founded in 2008 by the husband and wife chef team of John and Melanie Francis. Our goal was to serve the flavourful everyday Italian food we most enjoy to make at home for our family and friends, using traditional methods, by hand and to order.
We feature a rotating selection of beer, wine, and cider exclusively from local Nova Scotia brewers and wineries. Wine selections from Planter’s Ridge, St. Famille and Avondale Sky wineries are stand bys, with other great Nova Scotia wines making an appearance. Craft Beer and Cider from Meander River, Schoolhouse Brewery, and Bulwark Cidery are also available.
