I was greeted promptly and shown to my table. There were several large parties seated so it was a little bit noisy. My server was polite and attentive. I ordered the carbonara which was delicious. The pricing wasn’t out of range for a slightly upscale place in the heart of the city. I look forward to going back and trying something else.

Lovely, lovely first time experience. Greeted warmly at the door buona sera! We opted to eat outside on a recent perfect evening to go so. Sunset, moon crescent- lovely night sky.
Classic touches- Prosecco kicking things off, complimentary desserts with a beautiful cappuccino I had ordered at the end.
Food was perfection. Waitstaff was wonderful, truly impeccable service.
Mi sono divertito molto, grazie 😄

We found Luce to be excellent as always. I encourage folks to come back downtown to enjoy it -- especially now that spring is here. You can feel safe on the patio . You can't imagine what you're missing by hanging out in the suburbs! The patio is a relaxing place to dine, the food is better than ever and the service excellent.

Service was excellent and the meal was perfect. The eggplant parmigiana antipasto special was so delicious. The ravioli dish was very tasty with the creaminess of the ricotta and the fresh tomato flavor in the sauce. The tagliatelle with bolognese was fantastic. The pasta was perfectly prepared and the sauce was rich and meaty. I can’t wait to go back.

Once again, our dinner at Luce was fantastic. Food was delicious and we love the atmosphere. Unfortunately, our service was mediocre. The restaurant was packed and they did not seem to have enough servers. Luckily, we were with friends and had a lot to catch up on.

Luce is our Bi Weekly go to restaurant. The food is absolutely amazing and is expertly prepared each and every time. (Even when I have special request the Chef never fails). It is a relaxing atmosphere where the staff gets to know you and is always attentive. Wish I could give Luce 10/10

I always enjoy my dining experience at Luce. The service and ambiance are impeccable! The food is delicious. I was slightly disappointed that a dish I get every time I dine there was made differently this time. It was good, just not as amazing as before.

Ordered a $40 Filet Minot. I ordered my steak MEDIUM. It came to the table luke warm and was rare or medium rare at best. Very disappointing for the price (even Olive Garden knows how to cook a medium steak).

Overall, my partner and I had an amazing experience. Food was outstanding and service was spectacular!

However, I did have one concern. A key factor in choosing this restaurant was for the amount of safety precautions that they listed on Open Table. When we got there, it seemed like there was very little social distancing between tables and the dining area felt very “full”. I would recommend that Luce update their safety precautions on options on Open Table to reflect what is actually there.
