Il Lusso - Tallahassee
“We really wanted to bring a metropolitan feel to downtown Tallahassee,” said chef and co-owner Terry White to Tallahassee magazine about Il Lusso, an Italian-inspired eatery paying homage to classic Chicago and New York steakhouses.
The restaurant is walking distance to the state capitol, so it attracts a healthy share of lawmakers, lobbyists and others who seek a high-end option. Call it "urban chic," as Il Lusso showcases giant windows that play off the high ceilings. In the bar, wood floor meets marble, with trendy sofas. Guests in the dining room get a clear view of the sleek, open kitchen.
This is the second restaurant for White and business partner Craig Richardson, who also own Sage, a popular Tallahassee restaurant on the northeastern side of the city. And in Il Lusso's neck of the woods, it's in good company. Nearby restaurants include the likes of Cypress Restaurant, Shula’s 347 Grill, Andrew’s, and Savour.Read More
The menu is comprised of house-made pasta dishes (bucatini carbonara, mint garganelli, fettuccine), seafood entrees, and prime aged steaks and chops.
