I am giving this a 4 out of 5 because the wait staff was wonderful. Even through the roar of fire engines and ambulances from the hospital a mile away, they made the entire dinner special The food was tasty (I had tips, the potatoes excellent, the steak itself, good... though a bit "melted" into the sauce). But it was... More

Its been a number of times I've been to Luce. Love the food and the service. I would always prefer the Chef's Special meals. They are some of the most delicious food preps i have had lately. O, and their Cannolis are good too. Apart from the Ambience and Food Quality, the restaurant is conveniently located with ample parking place.... More

We went to dinner with four friends all of whom we're celebrating our anniversary's within the next week or so. It was a great evening. Good food, excellent service and good company. Note: We had our wedding reception there last June and it was excellent!

The staff were very friendly and accommodating to the large group of 21. They were all set up for us. It was a gathering of family for a birthday. We were at 4 round tables, not together, but I was aware of seating prior and we made it work. The food was very good as well as the service was... More

The regular menu offered a variety of Italian themed and classic dishes, but the specials were something...well, special. We ordered the NY strip (menu) and the sole wrapped in bacon (special) - and stuffed (with cheese) and fried zucchini flowers. For dessert we ordered the lava cake and coconut sorbet. The sorbet was amazing! Great service and they were able... More

We literally just happened upon this restaurant while passing through Middletown with hungry kids. I knew nothing about this restaurant at all except that there was outside seating which I thought would be great since we enjoy sitting outside and it would be more casual and easy with kids. The service was very good and they did have a few... More

We ate at Luces on Sunday. We were the first people in the restaurant at 11:45. Atmosphere is nice. The outside is very artsy. The inside is a little formal, but not stuffy. The food was very tasty. Most of the food is Italian. There were also sandwiches a available. Service was pretty good. Recommend because of atmosphere and food.

Had dinner last night to celebrate my friend's birthday. I had the pan seared diver scallops and they were tender and cooked perfectly. They were served with mushroom risotto, which was also very good. My friend had the Luce combo, which is a veal, shrimp dish, and she said it was very good. I also ordered a side of sautéed... More

I have been to Luce on a few occasions and have found the food to be very good. Last night, however, was lacking consistency. While the service was excellent, as usual, some of the food was not as high quality as I would have expected. My dining companion and I shared an appetizer crab cake. It was OK, but a... More
