The food is always exceptional and the service impeccable!
Nice to find authentic Italian so beautifully prepared and presented.
We have always enjoy our visits to Luce! The service and food are wonderful.
Wonderful date night. Delicious food great wine and very attentive staff
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.
Luce never disappoints. The service is excellent, atmosphere is quite so you can have great conversation to go along with your amazing dinner. Great place for a nice dinner, date night or celebration.
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 😄
By far, the best Italian restaurant in Charlotte. Fabulous, creative food, wonderful service in a beautiful venue.
A must try restaurant!
Great little intimate Italian restaurant! Very personable staff from Manuel on down. Food is varied and excellent. Desserts are heavenly. You cannot go wrong with this place!
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.
The food was amazing and the service was just as great!
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.
A favorite of ours for the past 15 years. Always excellent in every aspect.
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
Always a flawless dining experience ! Consistently delicious & each member of their team goes out of their way to make everything perfect
Excellent meal was had by all! The service was great! Beautiful restaurant too!
Never a disappointment
Luce is our favorite Italian restaurant in Charlotte. It's wonderful (and romantic) ambiance, amazing delicious menu and attentive service keeps us coming back for each special occasion in our lives. We just love it!
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.
Always a pleasure to dine here! Great atmosphere. Fabulous service delicious food and wine!
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).
Amazing food and service!!
Luce consistently preforms to exceed expectations. Another fantastic experience. Thank you
Food was okay, and service wasn’t the best. Felt rushed to hurry up and leave because they kept trying to take our plates while we were still eating.
We had a great dinner on Sat. at Luce. Our server was knowledgeable, attentive and really made our birthday celwbration meal memorable.
Very good. Matri'D par excellence. Hard to locate.
The food, the service, even the energy inside the restaurant passed all my expectations. Great restaurant!
This restaurant is amazing. The food is phenomenal and the service is probably the best I have ever received. Everyone is very attentive and the owner/manager is truly one of a kind. He is a gift to this restaurant. The service, the food, and the atmosphere is 5 stars. You won’t be disappointed.
It was wonderful!
Luce has always been a wonderful experience in terms of the quality of the food, service and ambiance. This feels like an excellent restaurant in a major metropolitan city; the restaurant never disappoints. Everything from start to finish was fabulous. We have a wonderful meal with friends.
Always lovely and unbelievable food.
Only negative... cheapest bottle of wine is $60.
Great experience, attentive service and wonderful food.
We were celebrating our two year anniversary. Upon being seated, they surprised us with two glasses of champagne. Food and staff were excellent. We can't wait to go back.
Great service !
Food was excellent
Great Service specially from Management . Food excellent as well ambience .
Convenience parking location at Bank of America
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.
My favorite Italian restaurant! The food is always amazing & the staff is wonderful
Loved the service and food 🥰
