Took my husband for a late lunch on his birthday and was very happy with the cuisine and the service. Since the restaurant patrons had thinned out, our waiter was extremely attentive to our every need. I had the Sorde which was orecchiette, portabello mushrooms, and spinach in in the most delicious lobster sauce. I especially loved this dish because... More

Our group of four chose Luce for an early New Year's Eve dinner, although with some concerns about the limited menu and fixed seating times. It turned out to be a good choice. Menu choices were fine, offering variety and options for non-meat eaters. The hit of the meal was a seafood stuffed crepe app. that eveyone wanted a taste... More

We had friends visiting CT for the holidays, who were recently married out of state and we wanted to celebrate! The reception was planned for a group of 22 people on a Saturday night. I picked up flowers for the table and a wedding cake for the occasion. When I arrived I asked for a table to be set up... More

the food is very good. Meals were nicely timed and well prepared. The quality was very good; seafood and steak; both more tender than average. The bread was outstanding.

My wife and I had reservations for a Saturday night; good thing; it was pretty full. Parking is limited but adequate. The few outside decorations are tasteful and attractive - especially at night. We were shown to our seat by a hostess who was polite but not anxious to have conversation. Our meals were nicely timed and well prepared. The... More

As always the food and drink at Luce's was exquisite. Alan is an outstanding waiter and very attentive. The blackened salmon was done to perfection. A great place to dine and celebrate a special occasion. They also have great appetizers if you are interested in lighter fare.

My husband and I decided to celebrate our anniversary last Tuesday night. What a memorable evening! We asked the waiter for a wine recommendation and we were delighted with the Zinfandel he suggested. The broth for the mussel appetizer was so good that we asked for more bread to soak it in. I had the chicken parmesan and my husband... More

On September 11th I made a reservation for my 23rd anniversary at Luce's. I spoke directly to the owner explaining how I would like a special table and a bottle of Moet chilled for the occasion. She told me this was the place for a romantic anniversary. Let me tell you this, it has been two years since I've been... More
