Luca was the owner of Italian restaurant Valandro's, who sold the establishment to Carla Connor and Leanne Battersby in mid-2007. Carla backed out of the deal following the revelation that her late-husband Paul was a client of Leanne while she was working as an escort. Leanne however managed to persuade stepmother Janice's new boyfriend, Roger Stiles, to lend her the remainder of the money she needed to raise in order to become the sole proprietor. Luca introduced Leanne to the restaurant's staff when she prepared to take over the business.
