Italian
Founded in 2006, Luce is a local favorite featuring many traditional dishes. Flavors which often bring our guests back to their best memories of Italian specialties.



My goal for this restaurant to create a warm environment for all guests that is typical of a true Italian heritage.



Our menu consists of many Buonincontri family recipes and recipes brought back from travel to Italy.



Fresh fish, meats and produce expound throughout Luce's offerings and a focus on the finest ingredients are what make Luce special.



House made Gnocchi, Italian rice balls and homemade Mozzarella are just a few examples our passion for the finest Italian food.The word Enoteca means wine library. The walls of the entire restaurant are covered with wine bottles as you would expect books to cover the walls of a library. Wine is a very important part of an experience at Luce, with over 125 choices from our wine list available to you.

    Dinner was great. Wait service a bit slow because the bar tender didn’t come to work. Our waiter, Rolando, was terrific. When the food arrived, it was delicious.

    The service was outstanding. Excellent waitstaff and food came quickly. Decor nothing special, but the place is clean and modern looking. The lazagnia was good. Would not order anything they make using Alfredo sauce or Marsalla sauce, as both were rather watery. Highly recommend the chocolate lava cake which comes with a scoop of vanilla gellato and a fresh strawberry on top. Not large but rich and delicious.

    right down the street from where we live, we go to Luce at least once a week. Joe, the owner, always greets us with a smile. The food is from his family recipes, and is consistently delicious. Good selection of wines to pair with any palate and/or budget.

    This is a neat place. Unfortunately, we went on a Saturday night at 7:45 and it was very crowded. I guess they were not expecting this many people and must have been understaffed as we went long periods of time without seeing our waitress. Our drink glasses and appetizer plates sat empty on our table for such a long time that we finally cleared them ourselves and put them on the table next to us after they left. Same thing with our dinner plates which is a little shocking as this is a very nice restaurant. I would like to come back in give this place another chance and hope this was just a bad night since there is a good vibrant energy here. Either train your wait staff better or hire more wait staff!

    As always an exceptional evening with Joe and his staff. Joe is an owner that oversees the entire evening of his chefs and sous chefs. Plus he makes sure the wait staff have all they need. We have our own wine locker and that makes it even better. The food we had was of the very highest standard, fresh and cooked perfectly. My wife had the grilled Salmon in a lemon dill caper sauce while I had the Garlic & Rosemary brined Australian Lamb Chops. We finished by sharing the Crème Brûlée. All in all 5 Stars. Oh by the way they have a A/100 inspection rating, that should be sufficient in itself…

    Very good italian fare. Extensive menu, so much so that we had a difficult time choosing. Wine list is good with reasonable choices. Chicken piccata and Marsala were very good. Although we ate inside, they have a very nice patio to enjoy as well. Service was very good.

    I think we must have caught the restaurant on an off night. Most of our food was very good, calamari, ravioli and pizza. But one of our chicken dishes was served about 1/3 burnt on the bottom I guess thinking no one would notice. Our waitress was just not good which didn’t help the experience. We barely saw her and had to ask for little things like drink refills and bread for the meal which neither came until we were done eating. Hopefully this was just an off night.
