Coming from a Tijuana native family of three generations, Miguel Torres Flores will contribute his knowledge and experience to Lucrezia, this new Italian restaurant at 4301 La Jolla Village Dr. Ste. 1050. This restaurant’s menu stands out due to its dishes such as grilled baby lamb chops, bistecca alla fiorentina, homemade pasta, and Neapolitan-style traditional pizza, made in a Marra Forni pizza oven with blue tiles.

On social media, Lucrezia states: "The ingredients and combinations found in our kitchen evoke the very mystique of Italian summers. We are curators of fine ingredients – the way we translate beautifully into our dishes is what makes us unique."

This restaurant will have an amazing, glassed wine cellar with a selection of more than 65 wine labels of several different Mediterranean wineries; some of them are limited editions.

Restaurant Lucrezia will also include in its wine menu the most select wine labels from Valle de Guadalupe. It will be located in La Jolla, California at Westfield UTC Mall.
