    I love Luce, food is always amazing, love the ambience and 2nd location but unfortunately last night we waited for almost an hour four our food for a party of 2. The waitress didn’t put in any effort to check on us in the meantime and almost felt like she was avoiding us instead of just explaining what was going on with our food.

    Great and personable experience. Knowledgeable, courteous and attentive waiter and additional staff that opened wine. There to celebrate a birthday and they had a personal card on the table for us - a touch we were not expecting but was genuinely appreciated and leveled-up our overall experience.

    The staff at Luce are incredible. They operate like a professional team, and it shines through in both the beautiful atmosphere and the incredible food. The floors are spotless. The bathrooms are gorgeous. Every detail was paid proper attention. The food blows anything in this state away. That’s not an exaggeration, simple an assessment from a mature food connoisseur that’s traveled a bit. It’s a matter of time before this Chef earns a Michelin star. A rare gem for Hampton Roads.

    The food was delicious. The entree portion sizes were small though, our only complaint. We had one of the halibut dishes. The drinks were amazing and the wine the Sommelier suggested was a perfect pairing. Our waitress Nakita was attentive, friendly and funny. Overall a good experience.

    Wife and I picked Luce for our anniversary. We were amazed by quality of the drinks for the taste and perfect amount of alcohol. Price was definitely worth the drinks, appetizers, and Entree. Chef was nice enough to come out and greet us and others enjoying the meals.

    Phenomenal experience. The ambiance and food are amazing. Best charcuterie board I’ve ever had. Everything was chefs kiss, but the highlight was the smoked salmon arrabiatta (sorry if I spelled that wrong. 20 out of 10.

    Amazing food, Amazing service. Everything was perfect. Only small complaint was that I'm 7 months pregnant and was seated at a high top. Not a huge issue except it started to get a bit uncomfortable after sitting there a while. Other than that, everything was perfect .

    We had reservations for two. They seated us in the back dark room away from everyone. We asked to be seating in the main area where this resturant is known for excitement and energy, but was told they were booked. This place brags about being different and highlights the experience and entertaining venue. The food was good. But the overall experience was a dud. They should have the option for main seating room or back room seating on this APP. There are plenty of restaurants that serve excellent food. Food doesn’t separate restaurants in this class, it’s about the overall experience.

    My wife and I had an amazing time last night. The service team was one cohesive unit. It didn’t matter if the person was our server or not, the team was coming by to check on us, ask about refilling our drinks, and removing dirty plates. Our server was top notch. Extensively knew the menu and was very thorough in everything he did. Food was absolutely delicious. We left there totally happy and satisfied. It’s also nice that there is a place in Chesapeake/Virginia Beach where you can dress up if you want to and take your wife out on a date night. 10 out of 10 and I highly recommend the wild boar ragu and rigatoni with sausage and mushrooms.

    background music is very loud. In the back room all you can hear is the bass beat. Service very good and pleasant. All staff was very nice and helpful. Food was good with good presentation. Salads very large and desserts very small. Good or bad depending on your perspective.

Our server was attentive, kind, knowledgeable of the menus and wines, and made the whole meal wonderful. We will be back.

    We loved the ambience of the piano bar and were having a few drinks there when we were soon taken to our tables in a dark room in the back with contrasting music. The bartender was very busy, but efficient and our waiter was excellent.

    Service is always impeccable, the atmosphere is great, and the food is exceptional. We always enjoy eating at Luce Secondo and we look forward to returning to eat again soon. The only drawback to this meal was that we were seated at a high top table and the stools weren’t very comfortable. We also were next to the window and it was cold.

    Luce Secondo has been our go to date night for almost two years now. From the moment you walk in until you leave, it’s an amazing dining experience. Top notch service, a beautiful upscale atmosphere, incredible food and wine; what more could you ask for? Chef Tony and staff give their all to make your evening special. Our dinner was superb and we’re already looking forward to the next visit.

    To start, the location is beautiful! We went for an early Valentines dinner, and the decor and ambience did not disappoint! The food was beautiful and well presented, but lacked in flavor overall. The service seemed like it was good overall, but we did not get a great waitress. I would be interested in going back to see what ordering something else and having a better server would be like.

    This was the first time we drove home disappointed. It took a long time after we’re seated to have water glasses filled, or a simple welcome from a wait staff. We were Frustrated that we needed to order main dish when we ordered our appetizers. While waiting for drinks and food the AC kicked in and we were chilled most of our time. When main meals delivered, no one verbally confirmed my wife’s meal was GF. So we had take risk and eat (or wait for staff to stop at table). When offered dessert, only ice cream was GF. This was her bday. So much for a candle and something yummy to end the evening. We love the quality of the meals and live music. but it is the most expensive meal in Chesapeake, so we expect the best. We’ll be back - this was just not our best experience and thought you may want to know. Peace.

    Food was *OUTSTANDING*. Everything else was fair. Our first table was seated 3 feet from the live sax and guitar - we couldn’t hear ourselves talk, so we asked to be moved. They moved us to a secondary room, where electronic dance music was being piped in, with high bass. Very odd - maybe we were being punished for asking to be moved? Service was exceptionally slow - just over 2.5 hours for a two course meal. Fees will nickel & dime you - additional $10 to split a $14 salad, $3 for bread, $12 to pay with credit card. All were disclosed, just be aware going in. But again, the food was simply fantastic. Maybe we’ll do carry out next time…
