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.

    We had the special Thanksgiving meal (turkey, dressing etc). We have been there before on a regular night and found the food to be outstanding. Not sure why we have not been there more often probably distance from home.

    The family went for Thanksgiving around 1 pm. We had a reservation and waited a few minutes while tables were cleared. We were seated and despite being quite busy the service was exceptional good. The food was tasty and we all left happy. We plan on returning when it’s not a Holiday.

    Food overall was really good - just not great. The arancini di riso were excellent! The gnocchi was good - but needed something more - too two dimensional. Wife's marsala seemed like it was half breading. Nice selection of Italian wines. Server was very friendly - but needed a bit more training - mostly in the proper serving of a bottle of wine. I ordered a bottle, he opened, and started pouring for the table. When he came to me he showed me the bottle then poured a FULL glass. Not bring wine to table, show the bottle, open and show cork, pour a taste, then serve the table a decent but not full pour. I would try Luce again though!

    I’ve always enjoyed LUCE. We sat outdoors on the patio. Sophia took excellent care of us! My Lobster Ravioli was decadent and delicious. My companion had the lasagna which was scrumptious and a generous portion. We both had the molten chocolate cake which was one of the best I’ve had. Our experience was outstanding!

    Food was good. I have to say I was disappointed and a little angry when I asked to be seated in their one and only booth and was told no. I imagine it was because they saved it for parties of 4 and there was only 2 of us. The restaurant had 75% of the tables free. Instead, we were seated at a table...for 4 and the booth remained empty until we left at closing. I think they should accommodate the patrons who are actually in the restaurant rather than ones who MIGHT come, especially when there is still plenty of seating available. The waiter and the food were very good.

    This was My family and I first time to the restaurant.We’ve been wanting good Italian food since we moved back from Italy in May and this is the closest we’ve gotten to authentic Italian food. Living in Italy for 4 years and having the best Italian food and wine I needed to find a good place to go here on out The service was amazing I would definitely be coming back for sure.. Kim.

    Wonderful as usual. Had fun with friends and good food. I’m on a diet so I did not eat any pizzas. Several of our friends did and they really enjoyed them. Luce also has a wonderful Happy Hour. I had the rugala salad and the appetizer sausage and peppers. I actually was too full to finish so it will be lunch tomorrow. We’ll be back!!!

    Such a great atmosphere. Me and my wife went for our 10 year anniversary and this place was so amazing. The waitress was attentive to us and told us she was new. My wife even commented that unless the waitress told her that she wouldn't have guessed she was new. Overall great food for a great price! Would highly recommend this!

    This was a first, I wanted to try something different from San Antonio’s standard fare. So I read some of the reviews, which the majority were favorable, and Luce Ristorante did not disappoint; my sister ordered off the happy hour menu, her selection, the meatballs, served three medium sized meatballs with an ample serving of delicious marinara sauce. Normally, a picky eater, ate all but half of the last meatball; this would be great to try again as an appetizer, enough for two, a great value. I ordered pollo parmigiana, again, a flavorful red tomato sauce, served with risotto, and a tender breast of chicken, topped off with melted mozzarella; i ate every bit of this dish, and would have it again. With the red wine, basket of bread, and three types of spread, or meal for two was a great deal of food for the price.

    We have enjoyed Luce many times and always enjoy it. The food is excellent, and the wine list is too. We hadn't been in a long time because of Covid, and then it was too hot to eat outdoors, but finally neither problem was severe enough to keep us from dining out. The outdoor dining area is very nice, though when we went this time it had been reserved for a large gathering. There were a few tables in another area, so it worked well. Their food is Italian, but much of it is not found in most Italian restaurants. There is always something unfamiliar to try. Their bread is not classic Italian bread - it's even better, and served with three flavored butters. We will keep returning there.

    Got there just in time to take advantage of happy hour cocktails at the bar which were delicious with good service considering it was a very busy atmosphere. Then, we were seated for our dinner reservations. My entree of Veal piccata was excellent. My others guests ordered chicken Marsala and confirmed their dishes were very good, with one indicating they wished for a bit more chicken in their dish to go with the excellent marsala sauce.

    We came to Luce for Restaurant Week and were pleased to see that most menu items were also on the Restaurant Week menu, offering many options for appetizers, entrees, and desserts. Service was a little slow at first, but the server was attentive and positive. When I did not like the red wine offered as part of the menu, he changed it quickly and politely. Desserts were the best, especially the lava cake.

    Anniversary First time visiting and the experience was fine but we felt squished in a corner with limited movement and view. And the chair sat so low and seemed uncomfortable. The bread was too salty and the caprese salad had no dressing and was only fair. The main dishes were tasty and the restaurant week deal seemed pretty good. The waitress was very good.
