Diner Reviews
  • "The service and friendliness of the staff made this restaurant standout for me. We were a group of eight friends and they accommodated us at a large round table in a quiet area of the restaurant, the perfect spot for us to socialize. He food was very good and most seem to enjoy the dishes they ordered. We all agreed to return."

  • "Whether it's to celebrate Mother's Day, birthdays or just "family dinner," Luce is our family's go-to for Italian around Oyster Bay. My husband and I also find eating at the bar convenient too...the menu is varied (homemade pastas!) and everything we've tried is delicious. Always reliably great service and martinis! A+"

  • "We are locals. We like having some place that's 5 minutes down the road where we can get good svc and good food. Wait staff is excellent. My only gripe is when I call to book or use open table they give me a 6:30 reservation. Clearly I could have easily arrived at 7:30. There were tables open."

  • "cute cozy little restaurant, but there is no valet parking and it's hard to find parking in the small lot. The front desk doubles as the coat check. If you're not with a big party, you'll be at a tiny table. Nice night out, we weren't rushed at all, but I wasn't impressed at all either. $$$ for something that should be $1/2..."

  • "Be transformed to the cuisine and warmth of Northern Italy. This family owned restaurant welcomes you as soon as you arrive. The table is set beautifully including olives, chunks of Parmesan and fresh breads to taste while choosing your favorite wines. Dinner can be romantic for two or fun for large for groups too. Luce is a North Shore gem on Long Island."

  • "Food hot, served in timely fashion, tasty but not exciting , staff only ok. High ceilings amplified sounds and made table talk near impossible and lack of decent decorating put ambiance at a new low."

  • "First time at LUCE and it was very nice. Service was very good. Baked clams, grilled calamari and the Ne Zealand mussels were great starters. I had the crabmeat grouper for my main and it was superb. Nice win list also! A bit on the pricer side but worth it!"

  • "Who would think that such a staple like Chicken Parmigean could be so good, highly recommend this dish."

  • "never got into a discusson about what I order and a disagreement from server Slow service"

  • "Generous pour on cocktails wine with ample table taste bites & warmed panne, so you don't necessarily have to go with an appetizer (us seniors are not interested in chowing down or are we always interested in taking uneaten courses home). Soups are outstanding and main course really special and generous. Dolce fantastic. Dispite this being New Years Eve and an early dinner service was paced so no one was rushed and staff was very amiable. Never been disappointed after serveral visits. This was previously the home of Restaurante Giarosole."

  • "Luce was yummy~ My app was amazing, Burrata was a perfect temp, (too cold & the ricotta cheese inside firm, too warm and it becomes runny), ripe beefsteak tomatoes & the Prosciutto, imported "Di Parma". My entrée I had the Bronzino, which was deboned tableside perfectly, we also had the Papardelle Bolognese which was not a traditional Pappardelle pasta (flat, thin, wide ribbon, but a lasagna type pasta) still delish and would definitely order it again.The service was very professional, courteous & attentive... My only disappointment would be the interior does not live up to its culinary rank...it needs a more sophisticated and updated décor, but it's definitely not a factor when looking for a great dining experience!"

Gracious welcoming us and excellent in making dinner recommendations. Would recommend LUCE to anyone and we will certainly come back."
