We were at Luce to celebrate a birthday. As always the staff was extremely accommodating, the food was delicious and the experience could not have been better. Luce is one of our favorite restaurants.
Excellent food excellent service!
It’s always delicious and the staff is courteous, very nice and professional and efficient. You can always count on a delicious meal there. They never rush you.
Amazing chef, the menu and the food was great. The Manila clams were the best I ever had. Very accommodating friendly wait staff, attentive. Can’t wait to return.
delightful friendly atmosphere with wonderful service and
I have to say I rather disappointed, it was restaurant week and everybody participates but Luce. I wound up spending a fortune that night. I tried it out because I want to have a party for my son's graduation. To find out not only that I spend a fortune that they are closing next week so I wound up going there for nothing
Third visit. Once again, thoroughly enjoyed. Will return to try something new on their extensive menu.
This is the "spot" for dining with a very special friend. We enjoy each others company while dining on yummy food with good personalized service. The Grilled Branzino with Herbs was scrumptious.
This little treasure is very reliable - good food and good service every time we dine here. We enjoy this establishment and will be coming back again.
We went with a group for NYE. Service was attentive and never pushed us to move faster. Menu offered a good selection of Italian cuisine without being intimidating. Wine list was good ranging from low end weekday wines to some high end cabs eg 95+ . Cavetelli bolognese was very good. Portions were appropriate for one hungry person - barely enough room for the deserts although they were outstanding. We will go there again as it's likely to become a favorite.
Allways a pleasure, fantastic host. Excellent service and food.
We have dined here numerous times. The owner and staff are very friendly; the service is excellent and the food is first rate. We had the Chicken Scarpaiello; SSalmone Provenzale, Gamberoni Scampi. All were excellent with exceptional sauces. The desserts are fresh and the Strawberry Napoleon was delicious and very light and flaky. Highly recommended.
A friendly atmosphere, excellent food fine wine a great dinning experience.
Dominic and his staff always do a superb job. We have never had a bad meal or bad time at Luce. Highly recommended
Greeted with a smile by the owner who personally seated us in a nice corner table.
Great service throughout our visit.
Seafood salad appetizer was fresh and the size of an entry.
Risotto is second to none on Long Island.
Each glass of wine was twice the amount you would expect and delicious.
What a terrific dining experience.
We always enjoy eating in Luce with friends and family.
However, this most recent time, I was disappointed with the biscotti. They seemed to be store bought, hard, and not presented as nicely as in the past.
Always perfect, both food and service, thank you so much for all the efforts you make to do this!
Outstanding food and service! Service is friendly and very customer service oriented!
Business lunch, regular lunch , dinner — all great service and delicious food! Warm , pleasant atmosphere—great place to dine!
I hadn't been to Luce in a lot of years, we previously lived closer but I had remembered the food being very good. I had to leave my credit card to hold the reservation, but I figured they were a busy restaurant that couldn't afford the cancellations. It was a Saturday night and the place was half empty.
And the food? What a disappointment. Having brought friends that own a restaurant just felt embarrassing. The food was dry and just not that great. The service was good and our waiter and hostess were very friendly, but that just didn't make up for the food.
Surprised by all of the positive reviews. Mediocre food and service.
Service was terrible, wait staff barely spoke English, had to ask for everything including menus.
Seafood dish was disgustingly fishy, medium rare lamb chops came out medium.
Waiter spilled half of my wife's martini on the table, never offered another.
Took forever to get our food and check
2.5 hours total
Luce made us feel warm and welcomed on our Anniversary. Luce is traditional Italian dining with great service, food and atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.
The food is yummy and the service attentive and friendly.
We had a wonderful dinner - Branzino an Cornish Game Hen. Delicious.
A gem with fantastic tasting house made Italien dishes. Friendly attentive staff tops it off. Do NOT skip the deserts. ..
Excellent food, great staff and great service!
Excellent restaurant from both food and service perspective. Have ordered a variety of food and all tasted absolutely delicious! Owner is a wonderful person who supports local churches and people in need! Highly recommend Luce!
Luce has reliably been our date night spot for years...the service is fantastic (ask for Marvin!) & the chef is so creative when it comes to his specials. Always our #1, even with all the competition the area.
Food and wine were delicious!
The waitstaff was attentive!
The place was charming.
Manager was very hands on
First time at Luce and will
While I have dined frequently at Luce it was my birthday and I wanted to be sure that my dinner was perfect. This is one of my favorite restaurants because it never disappoints. I anticipated an appetizer and probably the whole roasted Bronzino that they do to perfection. I went for the fresh burrata w/ melon and prosciutto. The dish emphasizes Luce's forte--great ingredients, a superb prosciutto among them. My Bronzino idea was sidetracked by the pasta special-house-made pappardelle with sea scallops and shrimp in a light cream sauce. It was superb. My wife ordered the veal chop and was very pleased with it. There are Italian restaurants and ITALIAN RESTAURANTS. Luce ranks among the very best. Their emphasis on fresh and exceptional ingredients makes the difference.
Consistently good food, service and comfortable setting. Look forward to our next visit.
My husband and I had an excellent dining experience from start to finish. We both had fish. The fish was fresh and served with fresh vegetables. The service was perfect and there were no negative comments to say about this meal.
Second visit in two weeks. Again, not disappointed in the service and food....outstanding.
Attentive service and delicious food. Chicken parm, branzino special, veal pappardelle all amazing!!!!
Will be going back very soon.
Everyone loved their meal. The linguine with white clam sauce I had was excellent. The linguine was perfectly al dente.
Luce is one of our very favorites in East Norwich... actually, not limited to East Norwich. One of our favorites, full stop.
Whenever we dine at Luce, the owner, Dominik, always greets us like old friends. The menu is excellent. The wine list is excellent. The service is excellent.
The regular menu has lots of options, and we have never once been disappointed. The specials are usually interesting, and they do not hesitate to tweak the menu to our liking.
Fresh pasta, great fish, top notch salads. Yummy!
Luce is recommended, without question or hesitation!
Excellent food and great service
Highly recommend the homemade pastas
Favorite Italian restaurant
First time visit, but will be back. The grilled jumbo shrimp on grilled zucchini appetiser was the picture of simplicity but an absolutely note perfect combination of flavours and textures. They should serve it as a main course. Homemade cavatelli with a slow-cooked Bolognese sauce got a rave review, as did the special salad of arugula, grilled watermelon and fresh buffala. Grilled salmon with scallops and spinach was perfectly cooked and substantial. Not a duff plate on the table.
Busy Friday evening clearly had the staff running at their limit, but it was striking how genuinely friendly everyone remained. The attitude clearly starts at the top. Our booking went fro 3 to 6 at the last minute, and so the only table to accommodate us was by the door, but the owner went out of his way to make sure we were happy. It’s tough to fault a restaurant for being popular, and we forgot about the location once the food arrived. It says something about a business when you see smiles on the faces of the staff even under the pressure of a full house.
Not a flaw, but a fact - hard surfaces mean this is not a quiet venue, at least when every table is occupied . Clearly lots of locals and regulars, and the atmosphere is relaxed. Looking forward to a return visit.
The food and service were very good. The decor and ambiance need improvement
Luce is always great. The food and the service are the best around.
