Luciano's Story

Luciano first came to the UK 9 years ago from beautiful Sicily for work experience and to learn English, after compulsory and later by choice, time spent in the Italian Military He soon picked up the language and gained credibility working in the hospitality industry.

Working as a chef and later as a Manager at the Midland Hotel in Manchester he realised this was his passion and to be his future. When il toro opened in Horwich, Luciano was employed to manage the new restaurant; this he did successfully and 3 years later looked for a business to open himself, fortunately seeing the potential in 'The Millstone,' as it was then.

Many customers developed good relationships with Luciano during his time at il toro and have followed him to ' Lucianos at the Millstone' to share with him his success here. If you have a question or just want to say hi, then Email Luciano
