This place has great reviews and now I know why. Everyone is very attentive to your every need. Great food, I had the rack of lamb and my wife has the salmon. Both dishes were generous portions and absolutely wonderful. The wines by the glass were very reasonably priced. We’ll come back if we ever make it back to Charlotte. This meal was the best out of several.

This was my first time here. I was in town for the football game and Luce was recommended to me.

I enjoyed the dinner very much. The service was very good and both the foot and the wine list was excellent.

I would recommend this and if in town again, I would go back.

We ate on the patio. We loved it, but it was pretty loud due to a band next door. It was also Labor Day weekend. It probably isn’t that loud during the week.

We dined here for the 1st time while in Charlotte for the Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit and had a phenomenal experience! The Spaghetti alla Carbonara was the best we have ever had outside of Italy! Loved it! Will definitely be back when in town again. Buon appetito!

From the moment we walked in the experience was amazing. We were greeted at the door and seated promptly. Our waiter was very attentive. The food and wine was mouth watering. We enjoyed our chicken Parmesan, tomato mozzarella salad, and our seafood pasta. To top to it off we had the most amazing chocolate moose dessert ever! Can’t wait to come back and visit again.

We had a wonderful time! It was my husband's birthday and we were treated so well. My husband couldn't decide which pasta to have, so they gave him half of each! The food was delicious. The wine was tasty. The service was impeccable. What a perfect evening!
