We were in town to see Hamilton and arrived at the restaurant a bit early, actually before they opened for dinner service. They invited us to sit at the bar where we enjoyed their homemade potato chips. The dinner was excellent and service was top...More

Luce feels like you are in Italy the moment you walk in. Beautiful decor and incredible staff. Perfect martinis and great wine list. I asked which pasta with veal did our waiter prefer and his response was perfect. "We will give you some of both"....More

This place has upscale decor, with food, wine, and service to match. While more expensive than average, we do not feel ripped off. We save this place for special occasions.

Very good Italian restaurant. Seafood was perfection. Gnocchi was not heavy with sauce and just delicious. Service was perfect. Decor traditional dark wood. Recommend not wearing jeans ladies. Patrons were dressed nicely. I didn’t feel uncomfortable, but should have dressed up.

Excellent lobster risotto— creamy with texture. Beef filet with perfect potatoes and asparagus to accompany. Wonderful fresh starters. Impeccable service. The teenager at the next table did not like his sauce. The waiter was charming, brought something different. Very Classy—the waiter, not the teenager. A...More

I went here with a larger group of about 8. I was happy they were able to seat us all at a large round table. Service was good and food was great! I recommend the burrata, mare, and ricotta cheesecake- all were delicious.

We arrived on a very rainy night and were warmly greeted by staff. The seafood entrees were well prepared and matched well with the wine our server recommended. We truly enjoyed the hospitality and fine food at Luce.

It's at least 30 minutes from Mooresville. If you want great Italian in Mooresville, try Caruso's.
