We went to celebrate our anniversary and the food and service was awesome. They made it feel more like we were with family than at a restaurant.

Good food, attentive service
When I am in San Antonio for business, and need a break from steak, bbq and Tex-Mex, I head to Luce's for a good glass of wine and the kind of menu I have to read several times because it's hard to choose. I often make a meal of a salad and an app or two, and this doesn't faze the staff. Very relaxed and pleasant, with good quality and attention to both taste and presentation.

Always great. The wine dinners
Always great. The wine dinners are interesting due to the wines featured and the creative dishes not regularly on the menu. Keep it up Joe!!!!

Very busy Saturday night.
Very busy Saturday night. Maybe that's why service was so slow. Or was it the ossobucco? Should tell us when we ordered.

the food was great, the service
the food was great, the service at the table was great, but the service at the bar was terrible. The bartender did her best, but she was absolutely overwhelmed with the bar and tables - only one bartender. Hope they re-think that! Other than that, no complaint, and I will definitely return!

We had the Osso bucco and the halibut and it was fabulous! Will go again!

REAL Italian Food in San Antonio!!
If you're looking for great tasting REAL Italian food, then Luce is your kind of place. Do yourself a favor and get the italian rice balls. I haven't had these since I lived in NY...Oh My God...they're sooo good. I always had them with marinara....Luce serves them with their meat sauce......that's the way to go for sure. Or have them bring them naked and a side of each sauce and you decide. The wait staff is very accomodating and really look to make you happy.

Another great meal at Luce!
We love the delicious variety of apps! Favorites this visit were the sausage pinswheel,shrimp (sauce to die for!),seafood salad and eggplant. Pizzas are good, but "spicy" red pepper/sausage one overseasoned.Scallop entree DELISH! Love how the chef is willing to change sauces and prepare dishes to order. Meal would have been perfect but service was very slow and ineffecient this visit.

I dine at Luce often and love the menu, the wine, and the atmosphere. (But the Minestrone needs some seasoning - should be tasted before serving)

A very cozy place for a romantic dinner occasion. The wine list and price will fit any pocket book. European atmosphere and food quality are outstanding. The pan seared scallops that I had were cooked to perfection. My wife loved the OssoBuco. The Cannoli and Tiramisu finished off the dinner. Service was on there game and the manager greeted us as we entered with our reservation.

I enjoyed a wonderful business luncheon at Luce this week. It is one of the few area restaurants where you can have a discussion across the table without shouting. The food and service are outstanding , and the ambience is classy without being stuffy. My wife and I have enjoyed several dinners here, but I plan to schedule more of my lunch meetings here, too.

I have been to Luce's several times since moving to the area and am impressed with the quality, authenticitiy, and consistency of the food. Growing up in an Italian family where my mother and her siblings would compete for the best "Sunday Gravy", i came to appreciate good italian cooking. Luce's is the real deal. You can tell that the owner takes great pride in his family recipes as well as coming up with new masterpieces whenever he returns from Italy.
In addition to the great food, Luce's has a fantastic wine list. Service has been friendly and professional each time. I would highly reccomend Luce's for your next taste of Italy.

Second time we tried it. First time was great food and bad service. This time it was great food with impeccable service. They really know what they're doing and even made me an off the menu vegetarian dish.

Italian as you like it
What a great find iin North San Antonio, really good italian with great service and excellant foood. From the appetizers to the entrees great selection and fresh. I had the shreimp appetizer in a garlic sauce, very nice. Was going to have the shellfish medley, but saw the Osso Busco, the rest is history

This was my first time here...but won't be my last. Food was very good, served in a timely manner, & the service was great!
Wasn't expecting such a pleasant atmosphere located in a corner of a strip-mall, but was delighted with the entire dining experience. Although an Italian restaurant, I had their Eddie's Delmonico steak. Better than most actual steak house restaurants.

Have gone to this restaurant many times. Never had bad food or bad service.

Favorite of mine
It is always a pleasure to dine at Luce. The food is always good, they have a great selections of wines and it has a great atmosphere.

We recently went to Luce for a family celebration. The food was good but not terrific. Some dishes were really good but the fish special was only ok, not particularly flavorful but the presentation was very nice. The children's menu could use some help. Most younger kiddos like a traditional spaghetti that they are familiar with.

Nice Date Night
I've gone to the Flying Saucer quite a few times without noticing Luce, but (through Yelp) we found this nice local place. In price it's comparable to Brio. For appetizers & desserts, you'll pay about $5-9 and about $20 for entrees. At those prices, we won't become regulars, but the food was good enough that we'll be back to try other dishes. My fiancee ordered the Chicken Carciofi and I got the Veal Milanese. Both were very good and (again) comparable to Brio. The service was good for the average restaurant, but not quite up to par with the rest of the experience. Our waitress was very helpful, but she left us waiting quite awhile for our dessert & check. But all things considered, I'd recommend Luce.

A Taste of Italy
This is a hidden treasure in San Antonio. We have lived in Italy and find the food here to be authentic. The gnocchi and pizza are fabulous. And don't forget the extensive wine list. The wines are as good as it gets in the city.

Everything was very good however
Everything was very good however there was not enough linguini to go with the very good clam sauce. Also, they had a very limited selection of beer -- no India Pale Ale at all, and no Guinness. Being a beer drinker with many wine drinking friends, I would not go back on my own.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Been to this restaurant many times and it never fails to maintain its high level of service and food.

Amazing Dining Experience
Everything was great, from the service to the dessert and everything in between. Had one of the best meatballs I've had, EVER. Will definitely be back during my visits to San Antonio, wish I had something like this in Oklahoma City!

Another great Happy Hour and meal!
We introduced another couple to our favorite spot for yummy,Italian bites.Happy hour food/drink specials are a tasty bargain!Our faves are the sausage,shrimp in lemon cream sauce,seafood salad,eggplant and pizzas.Our friends said the meatballs were good but the lobster bisque was too tomato-ey for their taste.They also enjoyed the gnocchi entree and I devoured the scallops, as usual!Cheesecake had hint of lemon and nice, subtle sweetness.Doug's friendly, efficient, professional service was great. Great food, ambience, service, and pricing make Luce the perfect 'easy to get to' neighborhood dining experience.

Nice Italian Find!
I have been to Luce for a Valentine's Dinner with a preset menu which was outstanding. This visit we chose from the menu with
a wide variety of selections. Both our meals were delicious....meatloaf and a chicken dish with artichokes and lemon sauce.
I will definitely be back.

For the most part, the food was fabulous. Our appetizer was a shrimp dish with a fabulous lemon sauce. It was great. My first bite of Caesar salad tasted like lettuce. So did my second. It was though they forgot to put any dressing on it. So I asked for more dressing and got it. However, the dressing was so bland that it still didn't do much for the taste. The bread basket that was served looked delicious. However, the bread wasn't baked all the way through. The middle of the bread was almost pure dough. I ordered the veal piccata and it was among the best I've ever had. Once again, the sauce was fabulous. My wife ordered the special - a halibut dish. She loved it. The cappucino wasn't that good and was barely warm, not hot.

We took our work team there for lunch to celebrate a couple of birthdays. The setting was elegant, yet comfortable. The food was phenomenal; the service was excellent. Attention was given to every detail! I've eaten there in the past for special dinners, but the special lunch was just as awesome!

Luce's Never Disappoints
I have visited Luce's many times for lunch and happy hour and have always enjoyed the food. The staff go out of their way to make the visit as pleasing as possible. The patio is lovely, the bar is cosy, and the main dining room is very pleasant and they also have a private room for large parties. This Thanksgiving I ate here with a group of friends and was expecting to be rushed in and out as it was a holiday but instead we were treated to a relaxed and highly enjoyable dining experience. You will not be disappointed at Luce's, at least they will try very hard to ensure that you are happy with your meal.
