We dine at La Luce whenever we can and most certainly on special occasions, in all the years we have been dining there we have never been disappointed and last night was no exception. Our dinner was so very special to this family and to begin with our server Stefano was professional, courteous, knowledgable all the while giving his utmost pleasant attention to our table an asset to this restaurant.Do not hesitate to ask for Stefano if you dine here.
On to the food, nothing more to say than perfect, there's no tastier start than Antipasti misti (good for a party of four), Caesar salad was perfect, dressing freshly made and to follow the gnocchi with Gorgonzola cream sauce and toasted walnuts, silk handerchiefs and hot Italian pizza, you could taste the Fresh! But please,please do not leave La Luce without eating dessert, the butterscotch pudding will leave you thinking of nothing else! And the Boston trifle and tiramisu will make you want to order a second one!Thank you chef. Impressive to the evening was that the General Manager of La Luce (Mr. Gannaoui) was visibly walking around making sure that all his diners were happy, satisfied and enjoying his restaurant. This speaks volumes to us and it was certainly our pleasure to have him stop by our table so we could offer our compliments to all for making this an evening to treasure.
Can't wait to go back..

Casually elegant dining experience. Food was innovative and excellent. Items that stood out were the beet salad, the Berkshire pork chop and the butterscotch pudding. These were recommendations from our server and they were excellent. Service was impeccable!!! Wonderful dining experience. Would definitely go back!

I can't say enough about the food, the atmosphere, and the service. All amazing. The fried olives, the Berkshire pork, and the butterscotch pudding were all as good as other reviews say. Eric was our server, and couldn't have been friendlier or more knowledgeable. It was a wonderful experience, and I look forward to returning.

The service was great. Very personable and warm. They spent a lot of time with our party. Acknowledged the 50th anniversary with dessert and congratulations... When a steak was a little over cooked to the persons liking it was rectified right away. And we were given a nice bottle of wine for the inconvenience. The Matre D was very nice and went out of his way to make sure we were happy. My Dad said it was the best steak and Lamb Chops he has had in a long while. Great Experience

We eat here when we are in the area. Casual dining with great food. The eggplant app was wonderful. They should make a dinner portion. The grilled pork chop was nice size, cooked to perfection, and tender. Their signature dish. Great made to order pizzas for more casual dining.

The food was amazing! Everything was very fresh. The pizza was like nothing I've had before. The fried olives and butterscotch pudding will keep us coming back. Thanks to Nela, our server, very attentive and knowledgeable.

Very good, especially for a hotel restaurant. The pizzas are fantastic. Great wine selections. I had the risotto special for my last meal there and it was great. We ate there multiple times during our stay and will definitely eat there again when we return.

La Luce is a must visit whenever we are in the Orlando area. Great room with terrific chalk drawn artwork. Excellent service. Very creative with their menu which includes excellent pasta, fish, meat and veggie dishes.

Last weekend, my family and I were celebrating my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary with a group of 12 people. We were greatly taken care of from the moment we stepped into the restaurant. Nassim (hope I am spelling his name right) was very attentive and friendly but not overbearing. Our party was very happy with all their choices, from an assortment of appetizers, to main courses of pork chops,salmon, ribeye steak, gnocchi, and more. Oh and who can forget their delicious tiramisu and cappuccino to end our wonderful celebration.

Very nice restaurant with great food, great service with great ambiance. We were there 6/26, Sunday, we stayed at Waldorf Astoria. La Luce is located in the Hilton Hotel side, a walking distance from Waldor. Our server was Candice and she was very helpful in suggesting what food to eat. For starters we had Calamari, which was great and we ate the whole thing. For drinks I had 7&7 and my wife had Sangria. Both were fantastic, Kudo's to the Bar Man. For Dinner, I had some pasta with Red Wine. It was good (pasta)but not great but my wife had fish, which was fantastic. (she let me taste it) and for dessert, Coffee with chocolate pudding ( specialty ) which was awesome. We walked out of there satisfied. In addition, the restaurant had a great view of the fireworks from Disney as well.

I got my cooking degree in 1976 in France. When looking for places to eat I remember my times in Cannes and the foods I eat when traveling to Italy. The food here is authentic with Donna's special twist. La Luce is about food and good food at that.

The food was excellent (fried olives and almonds, homemade toffee, pan seared flounder were all great and my husband does not usually like fish). Joe, our waiter, was helpful with suggestions and wine pairings and was very attentive without being in the way. He was very funny and very good at engaging our 12 year old daughter. I look forward to another meal when we go back to Barton Creek.

We visit La Luce frequently because the food is amazing, the staff warm and welcoming, and the ambience so pleasant. I have sampled most of the menu at one time or another and NEVER been disappointed. Amazing salads (ESP the beet or shaved asparagus) great apps..pick one, pizza pasta, fish or pork-chop (house specialty)....you will not make a bad choice.
It is IMHO one of the best restaurants in central Florida.

Absolutely one of our favorite restaurants in the Orlando area and one we always make sure to eat at during any visit to the area. The food and service are outstanding - we have never had a negative experience there.

This was a special birthday with family including my 15 month grandchild. We were all made welcome and received great service. The drinks and wine list was very good as was the food. It is not cheap but was very good.

Gahnni and his team do a great job at this restaurant. The food is generally very good, and the atmosphere lovely. This particular visit was a tick off on the food quality compared to where they normally rank, but perhaps just an off night.
I still highly recommend
Well-worth the visit!
The best restaurant we found on our recent trip to Orlando and truly reminiscent of our visit to Italy! My only regret is that I couldn't eat four courses!
I highly recommend noting the daily menu--the bruschetta--heavenly. This is not the everyday bruschetta you may find at many restaurants with chopped tomatoes and basil. I could have had this appetizer as my entire meal. The prosciutto was better than going to the daily market in Italy--so tender. Now I will be looking for robiola cheese. The sliced peaches topped the other ingredients. After heating, balsamic vinegar was drizzled over the bruschetta.
My primi course was also from the daily menu. I love risotto and scallops but really don't like fennel. Our waiter suggested spinach or asparagus. I chose the latter; this option was an excellent choice. The asparagus was bite size and tender with the star ingredient still being the scallops.

For the cost of the meal and locale of the restaurant, I expected a better experience. Waiter didn't seem interested in our party's needs - no spoon for soup, no offer of pepper or fresh cheese for the salad or entrees. Didn't really see him after he delivered the food. Not at all the type of service we have received in prior visits.
