Truly, the gem in Middletown and one of the best in central Connecticut! I've been too many times to count...with family, friends, co-workers, clients; and always, everything is just the best. I just came back from an impromptu lunch with me, myself and I. Sat at the bar and was rewarded with a basket of bread, olive oil infused with... More

There are a few Italian restaurants to choose from downtown and this one is my favorite. Outdoor sitting in the summer allows for some interesting people watching.

It was our first visit to Luce in Middletown, CT and we will be back! Our reservation was for 6:30 (early since we were trying to juggle dinner and a movie which isn't always easy to do). We were greeted warmly at the reservation desk and by the manager. Our table was ready and we were immediately escorted to it.... More

Went to Luce tonight for dinner with friends. Started with a cheese plate. For $14.95 the four of us for 3 pieces of hard toast and what amounted to about $3 with of cheese. There were supposedly 7 cheeses and we had literally 3 morsels of each cheese. Maybe dollops. On a huge plate. Then we got salads which were... More

We were expecting a fabulous meal by the way this restaurant is written up, it's not! The appetizers were ok, we had mozzarella and tomatoes, shrimp cocktail and clams casino. We thought from the good appetizers the meals would be amazing. Both my daughter and I had a chicken meal which had fatty bad tasting chicken. The sauce on top... More

After realizing our favorite BBQ place was not open on Monday the family and I drove up the Middletown strip past the majestically lit Christmas tree on the green to Luce. A warm smile from the host welcomed us as we sat at a lovely table by the window looking out on the passers by and a view of the... More

Give Luce a try. Lunch menu is very affordable though dinning here dinner can be pricey. It is truly worth the visit. Another plus, this restaurant has free parking.
