EXCELLENT FOOD AND ATMOSPHERE

We had a wonderful lunch on Sunday, August 23, 2015. We ordered Chicken Napolean and Chicken Medallions and both entrees were delicious. The chicken was tender and the sauce was extremely tasty. We appreciated the creativity and care with the preparation by the chef. I inadvertently left the... read more

The cocktails were excellent, but the food only mediocre. With all the superb dining options in Middletown, I have no need to go back. Disappointing.

On our last visit to CT we met up with some old friends at Luce for dinner. To begin with, we were very happy to see that they had a parking lot, as parking is very limited in the downtown area of Middletown. The atmosphere of the restaurant is very pleasant. The server was very courteous and attentive. The menu... More

We have eaten at twice at Luce's in the last month or so, and we found everything to be at least good and often excellent. The location on a slightly tattered main street isn't super, but the venue tries to make up for that witht wonderful flowers outside and an otherwise clean and attractive exterior and interior. They might try... More

Had a delightful, inventive delicious dinner at Luce- dined outside and watched Middletown evening go by- very relaxed and happy with the delicious and innovative combinations of ingredients. Went to car in parking lot after meal to find someone had hit our car; manager and/or parking attendant were both outside "watching" and said they know/saw nothing and were rather unhelpful... More

Nice outside dining area surrounded by flowers.The food was quite good and fairly priced. I had mesclun salad with shrimp.The fennel and toasted almonds gave it a nice flavor and crunch. My friend had a Caesar salad with salmon. She enjoyed it as well. The dessert menu was varied and looked good, even though we didn't have dessert. It was... More

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.
