They’re very sweet, and it’s nice that it got crowded but wasn’t too loud to have a conversation.

La Luce was a wonderful dining experience from beginning to end. Our appetizers, drinks, main dishes and dessert were all memorable. Rostyslav was an amazing waiter and made wonderful suggestions. Nice ambiance where you’ll be comfortable dressed casually or professionally. Prices are commensurate with the quality.

What can I say our favorite restaurant of all time we feel like family when we are here the staff and the management are absolutely amazing and by the way you have to try their “ butterscotch pudding “ yum!
Seriously we come here every time we have a chance when we’re in Orlando could not ask for a finer restaurant.

We liked the place and the food. The service was great. The only complaint we have is that the casual dress code is not respected. At the table beside us, some guests were wearing sneakers and gym clothes...it can really ruin the ambiance.

This Italian restaurant is in the Hilton. We celebrated Christmas Day there. The atmosphere and decorations were beautiful. Our waiter, Joe, was friendly, sincere and very helpful. All three of us had pasta! They were each delicious and unique. They were cooked perfectly! We shared flourless chocolate cake with coconut frosting. It was outstanding. A fabulous experience.

For Android upscale restaurant, bringing entrees 10 minutes apart from each other is a fatal flaw. Service was dismissive and the ambiance felt too commercial. Food was good but ordinary.

There are so many dining and eating (there is a difference between three two) establishments and La Luce consistently remains at the top of our list for ambiance, good service and fine food. Christmas Eve dinner with my husband and a friend was just
Another pleasing experience. We always enjoy Deborah as a server but tonight we had Christopher and he was excellent. But the food....the food.... ah the food! We shared plates the entire meal and Christoper set the standard. Fried olives and Marcona almonds were delightful with the crunchy almonds offsetting the soft and salty olives. Frito Misto loaded with green beans and fennel and tender calamari. One of the best beet salads ever with avocado and a dressing we wanted to scoop up with a spoon. Topped off homemade handkerchief pasta in a traditional basil pesto redolent with aroma and intense green color and topped with toasted walnut pieces. All three of us cleaned up the basil sauce on the plate with delightful, tender focaccia. Food was plentiful and beyond delicious but I had to finish with a few biscotti as wonderful as my Mother use to bake. Thank you Le Luce for being open Christmas Eve. Thank you Christopher for such great service and thank you Deborah for such a warm, welcoming reception.

Everything was great start to finish! The service was great. Food was amazing. My husband and I shared two different dishes. Also shared an app. Every single thing was great. Not a single bad thing to say. Also, casual. Not to crazy and fancy. Try the Mora Mora...infused vodka drink. Amazing!

Table next to us was very loud. We could barely hear the people at our own table.

Waiter forgot husband’s wine until after he was done eating his dinner.

Service for beverages seemed slow.

We’ve been to LaLuce more than a dozen times. This service level compared to other times was very disappointing.

Ambiance is very nice. Large open space absorbs noise so even though restaurant was fairly busy, it did not get too loud, which some restaurants will, that have tile flooring. The service we received both nights was spectacular (we went back a second time since our first experience was so good). Kristin the first night and Joe on our second visit, knew the menu very well and timed our service perfectly so we never felt rushed, a but never felt ignored.

The Ex Chef Shirley does a great job mixing things up with a good variety of pastas and traditional dishes. I had the pork chop which is fantastic, juicy and perfectly cooked, well seasoned and brined beforehand. My wife got the ravioli which was also fantastic...save room for the desert, because the butterscotch pudding, is like crack, trust me...but legal.

Would definitely recommend the place and if we ever get near it again, we'll be back. Thanks to all for a great 30th Anniversary dinner!
