Incredible dining experience -- first, make sure you get seated in Stephano's serving area. What an incredible, knowledgeable and engaging waiter. HIs wine recommendation for our dinner was "spot on"...perfect my ravioli and my husband's pork chop (I am not a fan of pork chops, but this one I will order the next time we dine at La Luce). The cannelloni dessert was OK...but did not take away from the dining experience. We will definitely return to La Luce!

We felt very comfortable in La Luce. Our server was attentive and explained the menu well. Our choices were delicious and we were very happy to have chosen this restaurant for a special night out while on vacation.

La Luce is an amazing find in Orlando! I LOVE the food here. The waiter Stefano is friendly and helpful. Most staff are great. I love the new mushroom lasagna. Their homemade egg pasta with shrimp is great! My only complaint is that the dessert is not quite as good as their savory food. I am a dessert person, and I find the butterscotch pudding to be way too sweet. The Boston cream in a cup is good though. The tiramisu has too much alcohol, and the donut thing can use a bit more sweetness in the white sauce. They need to hire a new pastry chef. Still, I LOVE their Italian entry. I just don't go there for dessert. For really good dessert, go to Roy's. For Italian dinner, La Luce is excellent. Parking is also validated in case you are wondering.

The food was absolutely amazing. We shared 3 of their pizzas and they were all great. The pork chop was amazing and so were the pastas. Take everyone's advice and order the butterscotch pudding, you won't be disappointed. The ambience was a really nice change from the energy of all the hotels on the Disney property. Take the short drive here, you won't be sorry you did. They include valet parking if you are dining at the restaurant too!

Service and food were exceptional. I was there with my family, 6 adults and 4 children. Room was not crowded, it was comfortable and service was excellent. Servers were very patient with the kids. Most delicious pasta I have ever eaten. Wine and drinks selection was also amazing.

We drove 30 miles out of our way to return after first visit three years ago. This is one of our favorite Italian restaurants in the country. Excellent food and wine.
World class pork chops.
Been there 3 times and will go back at first opportunity.
Manager sent the homemade butterscotch for dessert, complimentarly and it was delicious.

The staff at La Luce were awesome! We had a 6 pm reservation for 2 on New Years Eve that we were running late for. I was in a panic because it was New Years Eve and we were going to miss our reservation time. When I called them at 600 to tell them we were obviously late, I asked how long they would hold our table for. The hostess asked if I thought we could be there in 30 minutes. I said I hope so and she said just call us if it is later than that. We arrived at 630 and were seated immediately and we had a wonderful evening with delicious food and a wait staff that was on top of everything. Thank u La Luce!

This venue is a foodie's dream come true. From the incredible beef carpaccio, the fried olives, the fungi pizza, and pesto handkerchiefs to the butterscotch pudding it was non-stop bliss! The service was outstanding, and we simply could not have had a better experience! Thank you for making our Christmas meal a spectacular event ! We will return.

I'm not a big fan of restaurants in the Orlando area although I live here.
Growing up in New York, I guess I was spoiled by a multitude of great restaurants.
La Luce is one of the very few Orlando restaurants, which I've dined at multiple times and have not had a bad meal. I believe that Thursday evening was my 5th time there.
I customized my dish choosing the Vesuvio (shape) pasta with a lamb and beef ragu.
Pasta came out al dente and with texture. (Its hard to find a restaurant in Orlando that doesn't overcook pasta.) Ragu had a great balance of fresh flavors.
My wife stated that the Salmon dish was one of the best she's had in Orlando.
Kids shared a wood-fired cheese pizza, which they really enjoyed, although they enjoy most pizzas.
Ambiance was again great. This time we chose patio seating, which is screened in. Tables not too close together and of good size. The screen was very nice because we didn't even notice it was there until we sat down. Disney fireworks went off towards the end of the meal :)
Service was very good - we were seated promptly, the dishes were brought out hot, and never had to wait more than a minute for our waiter.
La Luce is definitely a gem in Orlando and worth the drive from anywhere in the Central Florida area. It is located within the Hilton hotel on Disney grounds and they validate parking, in case you are driving. I would recommend reservations, if you are planning to dine there on a weekend evening.

My family and I went to celebrate my husband's birthday and it was awesome! All was really nice: the food, the service, the quite ambiance... We could also see some of the fireworks of EPCOT, so it made the night more special!

We took a large group, most of my family during a recent vacation and the menu was excellent, service was the best I have had anywhere and the wine list was great. There is plenty of seating and its spaced out nicely so you are not on top of one another, the pizza we had was fantastic but they also have plenty of high end menu options. I would go back whenever I am in town if I have the chance, seriously cannot say enough about the service. We normally don't complain about our meals, overall the food was amazing but an appetizer we shared was different than expected, I didn't love it and when the waiter asked I mentioned it was different than expected because it wasn't what I thought it was going to be but ate it and was pleasantly surprised. The waiter however took it off the bill, we didn't complain or anything, it wasn't bad but it was very nice of her to do that either way.

Amazing food. Excellent service (thank you, Stefan!). Beautiful restaurant--unexpected gem in Hilton Hotel. Outstanding meal-pork chop was over the top; Vesuvio pasta so flavorful & delicious & wood fired pizza-superb! Wonderful meal!

OMG- the food was amazing!
I'm Italian, very picky and opinionated on Italian food. The meatballs were tender and delicious. The antipasto was filling and definitely made for two. Our waiter was friendly and professional and aleYs there to cater to our needs.
I highly recommend this place.

Amazing food, amazing service! We enjoyed our meal, from the mouth-watering antipasti to the wood-fired pizza and Vesuvio pasta with duck and beef ragu. Portions were perfect and flavors were incredible. Our servers were friendly and attentive. Excellent choice! We walked from the Waldorf to La Luce in the Hilton for an authentic Italian dinner and made the right choice!!

This was not our first time at La Luce. We continue to return for the outstanding food and service. One our favorites. You will not be disappointed. If you want a taste of a Napa California restaurant in Florida this is the place. The "sister" restaurant is in Napa and they have the same menu. We have been to the Napa restaurant and this is the same high quality.

As always, La Luce, being one of the brightest stars in a galaxy of fine restaurants in Orlando, offered a singularly delicious Thanksgiving Feast, Italian style. They made all the favorites: pumpkim ravioli with sage brown butter; the freshest fish - the Branzino was fantastic. And no dinner at La Luce is complete without trying their signature Butterscotch Pudding (made with MacAllens Scotch!) and the seasonal specialty: Fall cannoli. Top it all off with impeccable service (thanks to Rusty, Karima, and of course - Ghani!!).
