Cheflebrity: Eat, Drink, and Support

Lucia Kirkland: Lucia Kirkland has and will always will be particularly special to our family. It was established 26 years ago at its current location in 1988. Originally known as Milan Pasta Co. mom, Caterina Shyne, and dad, Jack Halter, opened as a husband and wife duo. It made its transition to Mama Lucia in 1995. Mama Lucia was a small restaurant that served recipes originated in the warmth of the kitchens of Caterina’s hometown, Altomonte, a region of Calabria in Southern Italy. It was also where all of their children learned from top to bottom the ends and outs of the business. Washing dishes, serving tables, cooking cleaning, managing and beyond. Restaurants were in their blood and they inevitably also had an affection for them. Michael Halter and his wife Megan Halter now take care of the neighborhood gem known as Lucia. In 2007 Lucia underwent an upgrade to which a new look and expansive space was revealed. Lucia still offers you culinary delights made from scratch with the finest and freshest ingredients. We are striving to carry on the family's time-honored tradition of using delicious food to put a smile on your face and replenish your soul.

Caterina Shyne

EXECUTIVE CHEF

She is little, but she is mighty!

Caterina or better known as mom has been on a long journey to get here. She is now a well accomplished chef who has worked along side some extremely talented people including Paul Prudhomme but if you ask her who was most instrumental in her life long passion of cooking she would tell you that her nona comes first. As a little girl cooking in a small kitchen in her home town of Calabria, Italy she would spend all day long creating beautiful dishes for family and friends while the other children played outside. The kitchen has always been where her heart is. Caterina moved to the United States at 16 years of age and worked her way to the dream she now lives. The family collectively has 8 restaurants in Seattle, Los Angeles, Laguna Beach and Kauai. She is the Executive Chef at each location.

Mariya Byndyu

CHEF

Mariya is an extension of our family and has made it her mission to execute the recipes past down from generations before to the best of her ability. You can say she delivers. She has been holding down the kitchen, the pillar of Lucia for over 15 years now. She has been fortunate enough to work side by side with mom Caterina and has grown into an incredible chef.
