    Great ambiance and delicious food. Wonderful staff from the host to waiter to sommelier. Service was excellent with perfect spacing between appetizers, entree and dessert. It was a Thursday evening and fairly busy. We had high expectations from eating at Luce and this second location did not disappoint - highly recommend!

    Our dinner was our first visit to this relatively new restaurant in our city. It was terrific. The service, the food, the drinks all were stellar. We are looking forward to going back. It is, however, not inexpensive. That is not a complaint. As the months and years go by if the management keeps the same high quality of food and service, the price is worth the experience.

    Our first visit to Luce Secondo did not disappoint. The restaurant is very stylish, the service was excellent, and the food was wonderful. The music playing in the restaurant was enjoyable, just a bit loud. We ordered two entrees and while both were excellent, the portion size of the Bronzino alla Griglia was significantly less than the Spaghetti della Pescatore which was VERY filling. Fortunately the very tasty Goat Cheese and Pesto appetizer made up the difference. The restaurant should add a vegetable or a side to an entree that would not satisfy most patrons.

    The restaurant is beautiful and we were excited to finally see what all the raves were about. We requested high top seating with our reservation and were seated at a banquette table with a chair on the opposite side. The seat heights were drastically different (by a foot and the waitress actually agreed that we were seated a different hemispheres) and we kindly requested a different table. The hostess was arrogant and obnoxious and told us that they were completely booked and had nothing else to offer( mind you, we had a reservation). Thankfully our waitress brought over another chair which worked just fine. Waited 20 minutes for drinks from the bar. (we've already left the restaurant but we are still waiting for our bread) Our meals- Calamari appetizer was yummy, a pasta dish which was half full at best, though delicious and a chicken dish which was oddly presented but fine. I don't think we will return to this restaurant but we do plan to try the original Luce in Norfolk.

    Delicious food and drinks, presented well and priced accordingly. Well balanced blending of old and new aesthetics. It gets a little noisy at the dinner peak. Food took an hour after appetizers to get to our table. Chair seating is uncomfortable. Across the floor around half the people seated were leaning forward for support on the table like we were. Staff is very courteous and professional, some of the best I've enjoyed in fine dining establishments throughout coastal Virginia. A corporate team I brought here were seated in booths, which were quite comfortable and changed the entire experience. We'll likely return to see if the wait time is standard, but we're spoiled for choices.

    Luce Segundo is an excellent restaurant with outstanding food and wines. Clearly the best restaurant in Chesapeake. That said, there is a lot of work that needs to be done. During this visit, service was very lacking. After being seated the waiter and sommelier were very attentive, promptly presented menu options and took our orders professionally. The wine and appetizer were delivered promptly. Then things went south. It took over an hour after that for the entrees to arrive. During that time, the waiter was noticeably absent. When flagged downed asked if there was a problem, he told us our dinners were being plated. 20 minutes later the food still had not arrived making us question the veracity of the waiter's claim. When the entrees finally arrived they were excellent, but the agitation caused by the delay had a definite negative effect on our experience. Management need to address this as a matter of urgency. The restaurant is simply too good to allow this to continue.

    Overall this was a wonderful experience. There was a bit of a bumpy start, as the server poured us water and gave us a cocktail menu, then didn't come back to our table for over 20 min. Finally had to ask the hostess to send the server to our table. After that, everything was amazing. Two managers and the owner came to our table to apologize and even gave us a dessert on the house. The food was gorgeously plated and tasted divine. Will definitely go back.

    Another wonderful visit to Luce Secondo! From the moment I walk in, I feel at home. Everything, from the food, wine and especially service are over the top. Our server Nikia was great, attentive, but never intrusive. Michael, the front end manager and Bethany, the sommelier were warm and accommodating. Dinner was amazing, as always. I had the Ragu d Anatr and my friend the wild boar ragu. We always drink the aka Quercia Montelpuciano d’ Abruzzo, a delicious wine at a very reasonable price point. We had a wonderful evening, once again. Thank you to Chef and your awesome staff for the standards you keep, making for a special dining experience. My absolute favorite restaurant anywhere! We’ll be back soon!

    Beautiful restaurant. Good food. Wish dessert was prepared better. Ordered Torte di Melle, which needed 10 minutes to prepare and Limoncello Mascarpone Cake. Torte was cold (should’ve been warm) and ice cream was too sweet. Limoncello was frozen in the middle and not even room temperature. Should’ve complained and had replaced, but it was close to closing time, so we didn’t bother.

    Seated next to the small 3-man band playing on a Fri night. Little loud and realized sitting at a high top for 2+ hours is a little uncomfortable. Will have to insist a table next time. Service was good but a little slow for me though (too much time between plating). Great choices on the menu and each dish sounded better than the last making it a little difficult in deciding. Went with the boar dish (pork). Good but was expecting it to be a little more than what it was, kinda' dry but tasty. Expensive but we'll return, just maybe not as often.

    Luce Secondo is fantastic! Atmosphere was so nice, it’s beautiful inside and the food was superb! I think they are still trying to get into their groove a bit and working out the kinks since they are new. Service was slow and the wait for food was long but the experience was great and made up for that so we didn’t mind too much. Over all I HIGHLY recommend Luce Secondo!!

    The celebration card for our anniversary was a great personable touch. The live band was great. When we went to Leone's we ordered less food and paid $100 more and the food was subpar. When got our bill at Luce we had to double check to make sure nothing was missing. Our food was phenomenal and it was an amazing experience for a affordable price!

    This a very nice restaurant, an overall great dining experience. The Sommelier came around to the tables and was very help with making wine recommendations. The food was very good with very large portions. I think we brought about half of it home with us. We started off with Mushroom Toast and then a couple of their chicken dishes. We even ventured into their desert menu and had a delicious Pistachio Sponge cake that melted in your mouth. Will definitely be going back! Throughout the night the service was very professional and attentive.

    So happy they opened this location! The ambiance is gorgeous, the service was amazing and the food did not disappoint! The drink and dessert were so good. I don’t have one bad thing to say, but if you asked me to there’s no specific hostess stand so when I walked in, it looked like people were waiting at the bar for their drinks. The hostess appeared quickly and that the only thing I could say. We would highly recommend this place!

    Excellent food, upscale décor, reasonable prices. This is a nice restaurant and there should be a minimal dress code i.e. collared shirt, no shorts, no baseball hats. 3/4 of the customers wore appropriate casual attire but there were some that must have thought they were going to a pizza shop in the Outer Banks after a day at the beach.
