If you want to sample Di Lucca’s Italian menu on a Saturday night, this is definitely one of the restaurants in Bogota you’ll have to book well in advance. The peach walls are charmingly cracked in places, and covered with silver plates, mirrors and old iron keys. An offset to the rustic indoor setting, the outside seating area is draped with sleek white tablecloths and white umbrellas. The atmosphere here is buzzy whatever the hour; the wine-fuelled conversations provide an increasingly louder backdrop to the bustling dynamic, and if your Spanish is good enough you’ll be able to catch some gossip from the elegant ladies at the next table. Although weekends require reservations, you should be able to get a last-minute table here during the week. Which is fortunate, because the seafood soup is simply too good to have to wait.
