La Luce Ratings and Reviews
Hilda (our waitress) was not that great. We had to look for her many times throughout our dining experience. My ravioli was made with a bit too much lemon flavor, but I was no means starving - food is all good here. Wish our waitress was more attentive and cared about us, but everyone else we had to speak to because Hilda was no where to be found was amazing and followed through on our needs.
I’ve been here before, several times, and I never regret going. The pasta is always fantastic.
My one qualm this time around- I split the caprese with my mom and the tomatoes were definitely a little too ripe. Not a problem that stopped me from eating them, but just one that slightly detracted from the flavor.
Our server was awesome and gave perfect wine suggestions.
I am always happy to go back.
Our dining experience was very pleasant overall. The food was good, however, the signature dish that waiters touted as the best dish on the menu was less than noteworthy. The pork by description sounded lovely but when it came out not once but twice over cooked, we decided to call it a day and share my meal. The staff was very pleasant and polite in dealing with this issue. They were prompt in providing a second order, provided a complimentary glass of wine, and a complimentary dessert. Overall we had a nice evening.
La Luce is the best Italian restaurant in the south! Plus, it's quiet (while still being busy enough) and away from all the Disney crowds, screaming kids, etc. It is still kid-friendly (my girls love the pizza topped with fries!). Great salads, fish and wines too. Service staff is lovely. We have been here 3 times and it never disappoints!
Excellent New Year's Eve dining experience! Our waiter Joe was attentive, knowledgeable and clearly wanted us to have the best experience. The menu had many appealing food and wine choices and our selections made for delicious meal. We have dined here before and will return again!
This restaurant was recommended by our hotel concierge. Lobster risotto special was under impressive, especially at $44. Food preparation time was very slow and it didn’t feel like waiter and kitchen were in direct communication.
Unfortunately can not recommend this restaurant
The beet, green bean, fennel, blue cheese vinegarette salad was outstanding! I , surprisingly, didn't care for the pasta dish we ordered...but it was authentic and fresh pasta. If I had it to do over again...I would have ordered two of the beet salads :) wonderful!
The food was good but I wouldn’t say exceptional. What I would say was exceptional was the service. The waiter was friendly and very knowledgeable about every menu item. My friend has some dietary restrictions that they not only accommodated, but went out of their way to create a meal for her. I found the portion size to be approximately double what it should have been so you may want to split appetizers or something to mitigate the family size portions. As we were staying in a hotel, we weren’t taking anything back with us and much food went to waste. Roasted chicken is highly recommended.
Positive Features: fine service, especially toward end of meal (e.g., provided an excellent complimentary dessert to honor our daughter's wedding). Well appointed facility. The soup and salad specials were very good.
Main Negative: The heart of the meal is the entree. Our group had three different entrees. All three were pedestrian offerings at best. For the price paid, this was most disappointing.
Minor Issue: We were told that our car had been called for before we departed our table. This proved untrue when we got outside.
We dined here just last weekend, while we were attending a sporting event in Disney World. We were not staying at the hotel where it is located, so we were directed to park in the adjacent parking garage. The meal was fine and food was good. However, when I went to pay for parking, it was an outrageous amount ($27 for about 1 hour, 15 minutes). I do not think the meal was worth it given the high parking cost. Beware of parking fee.
The food at La Luce is excellent. We especially love their pasta. The restaurant is also great for kids--they have a kids menu and crayons to color on the paper tablecloth.
This was our second visit. My only complaint was the service--we were being helped by 2 waiters, which we were told once we were seated. The first half of the meal was great, we were checked on and drinks were refilled. In the middle of the meal (perhaps when the second waiter was taking over?), we were ignored. Then our son's birthday dessert was brought out prior to the rest of the table ordering dessert. The birthday dessert was left on the table by the waiter, who then disappeared. Our dessert orders weren't even taken until after my son had finished his cake.
It seemed weirdly intentional that 2 waiters take care of our table. The first waiter was still working but was helping other tables. I'm really confused by this service model. It seems like it would be very easy for there to be miscommunication and discontinuity of service.
Stellar food and service. Our waiter, Stefan, knew the menu well enough to fend off food allergies w/o having to consult the kitchen. My husband raved over the olive appetizer. My salmon was delectable, his featured fish quite tasty. We shared the well-reviewed. Uttercot h pudding and it was worth every calorie. Don’t know if this is an Orlando restaurant thing, but our server offered what he felt was a better wine, and he was right.
Great tasting food. I would hope they expand their pasta options. I really wanted an Alfredo sauce, and they only had an Alfredo-esque lemon sauce on a ravioli dish.
They were flexible and put the lemon cream sauce on spaghetti type pasta. It was fantastic, but felt they really should offer an Alfredo type sauce on more types of pasta on their menu, since they are an Italian restaurant and make home made pasta at the restaurant, which is fabulous by the way. Even a basic fettuccine Alfredo, with a meat like chicken would be a great addition.
We enjoyed another delicious meal at La Luce. While in Orlando we always visit this restaurant at least once. The food is always predictably good and the atmosphere fun. This visit was made especially special by the attentive service of our waiter. We enjoyed excellent service and great conversation with him throughout our evening. We will be back!
