    Overall a very nice experience! Warm and friendly waitstaff and a beautiful dining room. Bar area is well designed! Food was not up to our expectations though- the house salad was too salty and the salmon dish was unremarkable. I am sure the other entrees are much better, maybe just a bad choice. We will probably come back.

    We go to the Norfolk location and we love Luce, especially the cocktails! This was our first time to the new location and the building/interior is beautiful and the ambiance is great. Our waiter was great and knowledgeable of the food/menu…the only real problem we had was the cocktails were not on the same level as the other location and they were inconsistent…I get the old fashion and at the Norfolk location it is amazing and smooth…I ordered two last night and they were both wildly different in taste, not bad just not the same as what I’m used to at the other location..lastly the food came out slow, we were finished with our appetizers before the bread came out, took over an hr to get the entrees…we still love Luce but will probably wait to come back to Chesapeake until they get a little more time under their belt, we will honestly go to the Norfolk location until then…

    Our server was very knowledgeable about everything on the menu. Provided exceptional service. Food was amazing. The only part of our experience that I wasn’t happy with, was the lack of coffee. I like a cup after dinner, but they don’t have a coffee pot. Still a 5 star experience though.

    Good location for our area, Chesapeake, Virginia, and a brand new complex that appears to be growing with more services and restaurants. We had asked for a quiet table in the corner for date night to find out that the room is round, and there are no corners, the boots or sit really low so I have my chin on the table, but our way there quickly moved us to a better table with actual chairs. Our waiter Cole is a professional. We could tell with lots of restaurant experience, and he was great good recommendations, quick and attentive. The food is really good and really fresh and hot when It got to the table. I think if we schedule it right, we can find a time when they’re kind of quiet and get a more date friendly table but all in all the restaurant is got a Rosie future and we will be going back often.

    It’s great to have an upscale restaurant in Chesapeake finally. The service was very good and the food was outstanding. My only complaint (and it’s a little minor) was the music they were playing sounded like I was in a underground German nightclub at 2 AM with the constant thumping which just did not contribute to or elevate the experience. It was a little jarring, and I am not a music snob! Would still totally recommend this place and will be going back again. So many good items on the menu I did not get to try.

    This restaurant is amazing. I feel like I left Chesapeake and was transported to Italy. The ambience and decor are beautiful!!! The staff is knowledgeable about the menu. The wine sommelier is extremely patient, knowledgeable and friendly. She helped our entire table pair a perfect wine with their meal. I will definitely return to have another night or elegance and great food.

    We celebrated our 35th anniversary and we felt special. The staff acknowledged our celebration and we weee presented a beautiful personalized thank you note that was sealed with a wax stamp. Classy touch. The food was amazing! I had the octopus and my husband had the carpaccio appetizer. We split the house salad which was elevated and delicious. He chose the Wild boar Ragu and I had a mushroom, sausage dish on gluten free linguine! Can I tell you it’s the best dish that I’ve eaten gluten free! I will think about their food and will be back! My only disappointment was our table was directly behind( perpendicular to) a party of 6 and it was hard to hear each other.I know they can’t help who their patrons are, but maybe staggering tables or reservation times could help.

    Fantastic. The chef and his team have created something really special here. The service is great and food is consistently phenomenal. Everything is freshly prepared with care and attention to detail. I've been here 3 times for their happy hour and once for dinner, and every time I go I fall in love with this place more and more. If you've got a group of 3 to 5, I highly recommend the charcuterie. And I LOVE the filet. One of the best I've had in town. It's amazing to me this place is in Chesapeake. Feels like it should be in NYC.

    A friend and I celebrated her birthday dinner, and as always, the evening was fantastic ! We started with Polpo Carbonizzato which was delectable. I had Rigatoni con Salsiccia e Fungh, my friend the Wild boar Ragu. Both of our meals were so delicious. We drank a bottle of La Quercia Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2020, my favorite wine, and finished with a pistachio cake. As always, the atmosphere, service, food and wine were wonderful. These are the reasons I keep returning to Luce Secondo; my favorite restaurant in the area.

    Outstanding food!! Great staff!! A little pricey but well worth the money. If you want this level of quality, service and overall experience you have to pay for it. Hands down the best dining experience in Chesapeake, Va. and maybe even the best in Tidewater / Hampton Roads region. The Chef came out and discussed his specials after we had them. We will be returning again. It has my highest recommendation.

    Wait staff was professional and knowledgeable. Chai drink was delicious. Disappointed in food taste. Chicken and olive dish was a bit bland. Also got the squid appetizer which was also bland and soup like. Maybe I’m used to food that is much more seasoned.

    The food and the booze were excellent. The service was even more so. Possibly best of all was the atmosphere… A stunning dining room, and check out the gorgeous wallpaper in both bathrooms, along with the awesome mural beside the kitchen… I have to give props to whoever chooses the music, I heard some of my favorites for when I’m looking for a very chill vibe. The prices were quite steep, which is to be expected in a place like this… Having worked in fine dining restaurant kitchens for many years I understand the formula and range to which items must be marked up to consider everything from the number and quality of the staff, to the money spent on good equipment and maintenance, to simply keeping the many pretty lights on and leasing the very decent space (and then there’s the pesky detail for the restaurant owner of trying to make a decent profit). Considering the quality of every above mentioned detail… It makes sense. Given current inflation, it makes even more sense. I give this place five stars overall. Come ready to spend money. This is not a budget dining experience, don’t come if you’re looking to get a steal of a deal. Come for the quality!

    Birthday dinner for two elderly ladies. The staff was so helpful and accommodating! The music was set to loud when we first arrived but they quickly lowered it when requested. Beautiful restaurant, excellent wine list, great food including GF pasta, and great service. We couldn’t have asked for a better setting for our celebration.

    One of our best dining experiences ever; not just local, EVER! Hostess, Fantastic. Bartenders, Stupendous. Waiter, Andrew, Perfect! The facility is beautiful, the food outstanding and the people- all of the staff- 10+. A quick tableside visit from the Chef was simply icing on the cake. Secondo is a wonderful addition to the Chesapeake dining scene.
