My daughter, son-in-law, and I treated my wife to a surprise night out. We couldn't have asked for a better dining experience. To begin with, our Avocado Bruschetta appetizer was delicious as were our drinks. BTW, their bar menu is extensive. Our entrees included Hunters...Sausage, Veal Saltimbocca, Sotto Scallops, and Veal Chop Di Casa. All were exceptional. My wife had no alcoholic drink and completed her meal by ordering the Midsummer Dream for dessert. She and my daughter (who had a couple of bites) claimed it to be delicious. In addition to the wonderful food, the atmosphere was terrific. Further, our server was helpful with our orders and attentive without being obtrusive. We do not typically spend nearly what we did this night for a dinner out, but it was money well spent as a special treat.More

Last time here was about 7 years ago. Next time will be SOON. Excellent food and service. Had the mozzarella app on special and the seafood cioppino served as an app, followed by lobster gnocchi. Meal topped off with delicious cappuccino. Server turned us on...to a lovely Italian wine my wife ordered by the bottle a day or two later. Lovely atmosphere, professionals all around. Dinner for 3 around $200 with one drinker, most reasonable for caliber of food and service received. Will be our new go to for a Norfolk date night.More

5-Stars is not enough to describe the Incredible Dinner I had. The place is very small but the Entrees they put out are fantastic. We showed up without a reservation and the host sat us immediately and the service was impeccable. I have lived in...Hampton Roads for 40 plus years this is definitely the number one restaurant on my list now. My only request would be expand your restaurant is to small to be this dam good. Amazing!!!!!More

One of the best meals I’ve ever had. The slow-cooked rib was a masterpiece. Great service and superb setting on Granby street. Can’t wait to find an excuse to go back

We dined at Luce on a recent visit to Norfolk for Labor Day weekend and we couldn't be happier. Friendly team, amazing food/wine and reasonable prices. The Pinsa was phenomenal and the Capellini Della Pescatore was out of this world! I highly recommend for everyone...visiting that area.More

I have been dining @ Luce for several years now and always look forward to Chef Tony and staff’s creative spin on Italian cuisine. My husband and I had dinner there Saturday evening and had delicious food, wine and dessert. I had a shrimp, asparagus...and pasta with lemon sauce, which was wonderful. My husband had the pasta special with Bolognese, also a hit. Dessert was a marscapone berry layer cake; a great way to end our meal. Luce is my absolute favorite restaurant, with consistently great food, wine and service. If you’re looking for a special Italian dining experience, then Luce is the restaurant for you!More

I think that’s fine. No dress code that I’m aware of. It’s business casual. I wore a Sundress & sandals.
