A word from La Luce
Famed Napa Valley restaurateur Donna Scala has created one of Orlando’s hottest new restaurants with La Luce®, serving Italian favorites -- including homemade pasta, flatbread pizzas and dreamy regional specialties -- all inspired by traditional family recipes that have been perfected through the generations.



Orlando magazine food critic Joseph Hayes said La Luce (pronounced lah-looch-ay) has placed the hotel on “Orlando’s culinary map,” proclaiming it one of the city’s best new restaurants. And his enthusiasm didn’t center solely on its “tasty and quirky” (his words) regional Italian fare, either. He was equally impressed with the service: “it’s as crisp as the bed linens in the hotel upstairs,” he raved.

Diner Reviews
  • "My wife and I dined here on a weekend getaway. We were sceptical as we have found that hotel restaurants are not always the best. This restaurant was an exception to that rule. Our server was a little green when it came to the wines but she more than made up for it with service. Pasta dishes were amazing and the butterscotch-toffee pudding was decadent. We will be returning when in the area."

  • "I recently attended a conference at the Hilton and entertained clients at La Luce two nights in a row. Everyone came away very pleased with their meals and the experience as a whole. Both the food and service were excellent. The pork chop and ribeye seemed to be the standout favorites. I would not hesitate to bring clients here again."

  • "My girlfriend and I ate at La Luce on Christmas of last year as we were visiting Orlando to go to Disneyworld. We had such a great experience that I brought my girlfriend back here a second time for her birthday. We had another great experienence and our server David did an excellent job. We even received a complimentary dessert because of the special occasion."

  • "Dinner took a while to come out. About 45 minutes. There were 5 in the party and one pasta dish was not hot when it arrived. Food was very good. Management was responsive once they realized their oversight. Provided hot pasta dish and 3 desserts without charge. We had the BLT pizza for an appertizer. It was excellent."

  • "I needed to find a nice place for my food-obsessed out of town friend, and La Luce was perfect. He enjoyed the fine food, and itbwas casual enough so we could talk and laugh and not worry about being too loud in a stuffy place. There were a bunch of kids there, it is kind of within Disney, but it all made for a good time."

  • "Our review is based on early dining at 6pm as we have a small child, I would hope later in the evening it is more atmospheric as the food is really good."

  • "We had dinner at La Luce while staying at the hilton bonnet creek. The restaurant is very modern and elegantly decorated with a nice ambiance. The service was superb! Joe took excellent care of us and made our experience even better than it would have been. He was pleasant, engaging, and knowledgable. I will say, however, that I felt the menu was a bit limited and pricy for the portions (but I guess that is to be expected from hotel restaurants). Nonetheless, dinner was great and the tiramisu was some of the best i've had!"

  • "I was disappointed with the banquet service. Group was 16 and had to use fixed preplanned menu. Price was inflated compared to menu prices. Dinner served family style and portion of entrees very skimpy. Compared to cost of the fixed menu it was overpriced by about 30-40 %. Set up Spartan. Did not pre order wine given the price, plus a corkage fee and as a result I think our service lagged because we did not buy wine. Ordered ala carte drinks. One Kudo for the beet salad which was outstanding, but the rest of the meal was "meets requirement" grade. I think they rely on the fact that travel to another restaurant for a large group at a conference is too big a hassle and they have a captive audience."

  • "After several days of enduring park food, we (grandma, grandpa, mom, dad, and two toddlers) we decided to forego eating for a little while longer and have dinner back at our hotel later in the evening. When we arrived at 9:30 PM, all of us hot and exhausted, we were pleasantly greeted by name by the hostess, and then. to our awaiting table with high chair and crayons already in place. We had appetizers, salads, and pizzas, all were very good. The pizzas are personal size, thin crust, and perfectly crispy. The service was very attentive and prompt. La Luce was overall a great choice for our family to eat and wind down after a long day at the park. We will surely return to enjoy the full La Luce experience next time we are in town."

  • "We were in Orlando for a conference and made reservations for a dinner party at La Luce. Everything was excellent but what I remember most are the olives. My family is from Abruzzo region of Italy where they make stuffed, fried olives. At La Luce, they make breaded and fried olives which I have never had before and we ate them like popcorn. They were fantastic! Great place, excellent service, wonderful food. "

  • "After a day at the parks and fast food we wanted a nice dinner with some really good food. This is the place. The food was amazing. My wife had the pork chop and I had the steak. Both were melt in your mouth. My older daughter had the salmon and loved it. The kids had pizza and ravioli. Both were off the regular menu so we paid full price for the kids as well. There is not really a kids menu so for younger ones, unless they are used to being in a more elegant restaurant this is not the place for them. The restaurant was beautiful and comfortable and even though we were still in our park attire, we were very comfortable here. Prices are not cheap but also not ridiculously high. The quality of food was worth every penny."

  • "La Luce is the quintessential laid-back yet elegant dining experience - think coastal California, Napa - Italian flair. The food is exceptional; the service is impeccable; the view of the golf course, lakes, and (if you time it right) sunset is perfect. The menu has great standards (don't miss the duck ragu or the meatballs - in fact get the ragu and add a side of meatballs as our waiter wisely recommended). Nice wine list. Excellent dessert (trademark butterscotch pudding but even better is the homemade side of toffee)."

  • "When we arrived at the restaurant , we almost left, as it was located inside of a Hilton Hotel, and I had my fill of hotel food . But, we were hungry, and the Open Table ratings did say the food was great, so we waited. A fifteen minute wait, which left me somewhat disgruntled, but our waiter, immediately turned things around. He guided us through the menu, and uncharacteristically didn't recommend the most expensive item on the menu. I can say that this was one of the best meals I ever had. The wine list was very good, and we thought prices were reasonable. The service, cuisine and wine came together for a memorable and outstanding experience. We look forward to returning soon."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "We found the sauces to be a bit too salty, though the rest of the food was excellent. The salty sauce issue was not just for pasta dishes but even the sauce for the Bistecca. We have eaten here several times before over the past 2 years, and there was not issue with the sauces...so it was either an off day for the saucier, or there is a different saucier in the kitchen. Service, as usual, was excellent, and the wine selection is of merit. Desserts are worth saving room for."

  • "I brought my visiting granddaughter for special dinner to La Luce. The staff made us feel welcome & important. The food was described in such a way that we order extra as we couldn't decide on just two dinners. We were NOT disappointed! I miss my college girl & this evening helped us celebrate time together. I recommend this restaurant for any event. It promises exceptional food & service.."

  • "My wife and I had a very nice dinner at La Luce. I was at first put off when we arrived and I realized it was a hotel restaurant, but we went in, were greeted promptly and warmly, and led to a nice table. The service was very, very good. The waiter was knowledgeable about the wine list, made intelligent suggestions about entrees, and was very pleasant. She had the tiger shrimp special and I had the snapper special. Both were very good. I don't see us traveling that way again soon, but we are glad we found La Luce on Open Table."

  • "Simply great Italian and continental cuisine!! This restaurant is a MUST visit if you are staying at the Hilton Bonnett Creek or is certainly worth a special trip. You will not be disappointed. We dined there 3 of 4 nights and would have dined all 4 nights if we didn't have a character dinner booked at Disney. Every dish impressed including the pasta and meatballs(the best meatballs I've had and I'm from an Italian background), pork chop, steak, gnocchi, snapper, pizza, calamari and all the salads. The service matched the food. All in all you'd be hard pressed to find better food anywhere."
