My mistake as I did not look at the tab when paying until after I got home and found a charge of $3.00 for Ice Tea which was never ordered. Lunch was good, but nothing to rave about. Scallopini at $17.95 was over priced. 2 pieces of veal with roasted potatoes - really ! Atmosphere is very nice with heavy... More

I ordered the veal chop with mashed potatoes and green beans. The potatoes and green beans were great. The veal was ok.

We stopped for oysters and wine on the front outdoor seating. The area was pleasant and the food was good. The cheapest malbec was $6.50/glass and it was excellent if you like Malbec. The service was good...not amazing or above average but good enough.

From start to finish a great experience. Loved the menu, large selection of nice wines, and knowledgable and friendly wait staff. My business party was totally impressed with the oysters, entrees (pastas and scallops), wine, and dessert. I would go back in a heartbeat.

This was our second time here and the food and service were consistent with the first time. It has a friendly, family atmosphere and the portions are quite adequate. The Luce Combo dish was delicious and I recommend it highly. It was even better the next day.

After reading a number of good reviews, I decided to try this place out with a friend. The atmosphere was inviting enough, the service was very good hello but the food was disappointing and overpriced. Scallops we had were tender but strangely extremely salty. We also had the quesadilla and pay an extra $8.00 for what seemed like two shrimp... More

When you enter Luce you are greeted warmly and promptly seated. Delicious bread with rosemary and garlic infused olive oil come next. We have never had a bad meal here. The atmosphere is a bit of old world charm, but very classy. We felt like we were in a New York City restaurant without the busyness. The prices are somewhat... More

I had the lamb chop special and it was great. Good appetizer too some sort of cheese thing. It was a little cold in the building mainly because it was so cold outside. Comfortable seating as the table are not too close together. A little expensive as it was maybe $150 for dinner with a few drinks each. Good free... More
