    Luce always does a top shelf experience. I’ve been dining with them for over 14 years and they have remained consistently excellent over the years. Whenever I have guests in town, we go to Luce and they rave.

    Caesar was an amazing server and we had the best dining experience! It was our first time at Luce and we were celebrating a birthday & our 2 year wedding anniversary. We were given the perfect table tucked away and felt very taken care of. The food was fantastic along with the wine selection. Thank you so much!!! We will be back!!!

    The meal was outstanding. I ordered the Butera rigatoni--a specialty I enjoyed in NYC. It was done to perfection. My wife had the Chicken which was also very good. We shared a Caesar salad (very good and they split it for us on serving). The staff was attentive and aware of the need to get folks out for a theater date,

    Food was super great! Service was good as well! I didn’t appreciate the hostess walking around to literally look at everyone’s plate so she’d know who would be leaving soon. She could’ve done it more discretely, I felt. But overall, great experience & best Italian we’ve had in Charlotte so far!

    We ate at the bar, which was fine. Service was great. Bread was fantastic, appetizers were just ok for us. Calamari did not have a lot of flavor. However, our meal was the fish special and it was AMAZING! Dessert was just ok the cannoli and tiramisu. Nice little spot.

    Luce recognized our anniversary (probably from our OpenTable profile) with a very nice gesture as we sat down. The service was personal and left us wanting for nothing. Cesar was attentive and very helpful as was all the staff. Our meals were delicious and more than enough. We had drinks, antipasto special, mains and dessert and enjoyed everything about the experience. This is NOT a spaghetti and meatballs type of place. The cannelloni beans with the bread course were outstanding! We'll most certainly be back and would consider this a destination to bring others.

    My family and I had a great experience at Luce. Everything we ate and drank was delicious. We ordered two bottles of wine for the table, and our waiter was knowledgeable on which bottles to order based on our tastes. The appetizers were delicious. We started with the antipasto misto and the burrata and prosciutto, which were both delicious. They even provide fresh, warm bread for the table along with a bowl of cannellini beans mixed with olive oil, basil, and other spices. So good! We each also got a salad, but you could have easily split one salad into two (which is what my parents did). We could have left right then and it would have been a great meal! But our entrees continued to blow us away. My fiancé ordered the ziti alla vodka and substituted prosciutto for Italian sausage. My dad got the rigatoni buttera. My mom got the chicken piccata with seasonal vegetables. I ordered the bucatini amatriciana. Everything was so flavorful and delicious, it was hard to stop eating! While we don’t live in the area, if we are ever back in Charlotte, we’ll be sure to head straight to Luce’s!

    Finally found a good Italian restaurant in Charlotte. I had the veal piccata and it was delicious. Glad it was served with roasted vegetables instead of pasta because I was determined to every bite of the delicious veal. Service was spot on too. Nice wine selection too!

Our server Roberto was super and helped choose a wine when the one I had selected was out of stock. Couldn’t have been better and stayed in the same price range! Fantastic food, service and just a wonderful dining experience. Can’t say enough positive things and if we are ever in the Charlotte area again, we will definitely try and make another visit!
