La Luce Ratings and Reviews
Excellent food and service
I had dinner here on the last night of my vacation and what a way to end it. We were seated outside on the balcony which overlooked the pool and grounds. We were able to watch the sunset during dinner. The Sangria was delicious as well as the Eggplant Appetizer. I tried their signature dish which was a grilled pork chop topped with a tomato olive salsa and served with broccolini and roasted potatoes. It was the most tender pork chop I've ever tasted. It was phenomenal. For dessert the Bostini Trifle which was also excellent. The service at this restaurant was top notch.Our waiter Stefan was very attentive and friendly. All the staff was exceptional. Definitely will be going back on my next vacation!

La Luce is the best Italian restaurant in Orlando. We have dined there many times and never had anything but exceptional food and service. It is so good we drive from the north suburbs to La Luce to dine. I was originally told of La Luce by a couple that drove from Winter Park weekly to dine there. All of the menu is exceptional and the pizza is the best in town. Kudos to GIANN and his staff.

Get the Pork Chop!
Get the Pork Chop!
La Luce is the Gold Standard in Orlando!!!
The food is 100% authentic and made from scratch... truly fresh-made pasta and risotto; pizza made on the spot - and unctuous - if they have the ingredients the mushroom pizza with guanciale and imported cheese and fresh egg will blow you away...But what sets La Luce apart is their mastery of paying attention to every little detail (remembering you, making new guests feel special, pairing wines, etc.) while never being fussy or pretentious. One more thing: the food there will leave you inspired; I have taken a page from their (recipe) book...and done my best to replicate some truly innovative and delicious dishes, e.g. duck ragout; shaved asparagus salad with pistachios and get this: lemon Mascarpone dressing?! La Luce never disappoints! Kudos to all the GREAT staff - truly flawless. Chef Alberto is a master, Manager Gani (Annas) is a true professional who will make you feel at home yet special; and the La Luce staff are superb -they have always made us feel like family and are exceptionally astute regarding your tastes, preferences, and in making recommendations - thanks toKarima, Eric, StefanTreat yourself - give La Luce a try!

Nice restaurant inside Hilton Hotel. Fairly overpriced for Italian restaurant
Food was superb, superb, just FABULOUS! EXCELL!
Waiter was a little slow, overwhelmed, BUT, EXCELLENT, very kind. Atmosphere could do with more palms, flowers, plants and decor. Decor was sparse. Noise was very low, but of course seated next to a screaming infant For 30 minutes. Would be better to have a "Children's Section" Please, a separate CHILDREN'S SECTION...PLEASE! Did not like yellow Bloody Mary...ugh Very authentic, Tuscan, Italian...with hummingbird vine it would Have felt like Tuscany...grande
We go to WDW area 5-6 times per year (we live in Tampa). Every time, we eat at la Luce. We have only ever stayed at the Hilton once. It's wonderful. Great staff really good food - love love !! Get the lamb - mmmmm

We go to La Luce every few weeks The food is always amazing and the service great I highly recommend it ...you will not be disappointed
Skip The Bull & Bear completely! Food & service++
We ate at Bull & Bear the night prior and after eating at La Luce the next night wish we had skipped the over priced, and terrible service at the Bull!! La Luce's chef and front of the house manager need to take over running Bull & Bear as soon as possible. I live in Winter Park and wish we had La Luce on Park Avenue so I could enjoy a great meal like what we had at La Luce!
The best in Orlando!
This place is amazeballs! We have never had a bad meal here. The entire staff is beyond compare, and the food ... well, be prepared for Italian foodgasms.
Overall...had a great experience! Stayed at the Four Seasons while in Orlando but decided to try something different. Only a 10 minute drive away. Great food and drinks! Well worth it!
Great food great service!

The menu is limited but the options are delicious. The service was impeccable.
very good restaurant
I have been to La Luce before and it never disappoints. Services are top quality and waiters are very polite and attentive. Food quality is also very good, but not really as good as what they charge for it, however in La Luce, you don't just pay for food, you also pay for service. Drinks quality from the Bar was excellent. Overall I had a nice time and will repeat.
La Luce can be great if help got better
Food was pretty good but service not help. Restaurant is understaffed thus taking forever to get something.

We ate here 2 nights in a row, it was that good! Attentive servers, quiet dining. Food (the ravioli) was fabulous! Dessert sampler outstanding!
A Perfect Evening
La Luce is lovely, with a calm atmosphere, perfect lighting and the perfect level of music. Our meal was delicious.
Really yummy and great service all three times!
I stayed at Hilton bonnet Creek for a conference in Orlando. My family was with me for the first part of the trip, and we went there two nights in a row. My sons are 9 and 6, and although the restaurant is very nice, it was kid friendly as well. The service was great. I especially loved the hostess (only wish I could remember her name). After my family left, I wanted to bring clients to the restaurant for dinner but the reservation times were all late. The hostess worked with me and found a table for us. I tried various things over the course of my three dinners there -- yes, I recognize it's a little pathetic that I ate there three times but, (1) it was good and (2) there are seriously not many good food choices in the immediate vicinity -- loved all I had. Beet salad, hot Italian pizza, bruschetta appetizer with pesto, salmon, and shrimp risotto were all on point. Obviously, I would go there again, haha.
Great, great atmosphere, ask for the booth.
But food didn't match the decor, just average. Service was delightful. Warning, because this is a resort hotel location, despite the classy name, there were quite a few families with young children dining as well. Even on a Friday nite!
We have been there many times and the food is always great! Desserts made the evening perfect

The service and food were excellent as usual, but I would like to see some variation on the menu. The menu has not changed since they opened in 2008, other than the daily specials . For those that come often it's getting a little boring.

My husband and I enjoyed an amazing dinner while visiting Orlando. The cocktails, wine, and food were outstanding. The service was excellent. I highly recommend La Luce for a nice dinner out!

Both the food and service were outstanding at La Luce. The menu offers interesting choices for entrees (Garganelli with wild boar ragu). Being near Disney there will be some families with younger children. Very nice wine list although I would like to see an expanded offering by the glass. Ask for Eric as your server. Very knowledgeable and professional. All in all a very nice experience.
Extremely slow service
Waitstaff stretched far too thin for restaurant at this price point. They were doing their best, and were polite, but the kitchen, perhaps understaffed, was painfully slow. Part of our party left before the offer of dessert, and it still took more than 15 minutes more for dessert and coffee to arrive. Another 20 minute wait for the check to be presented and paid. With ample dining space, it would have also been more pleasant to seat families with children under 10 in a space apart from adult dining parties.
The restaurant was spectacular. The lighting and sound was phenomenal and really made for a great atmosphere for our valentines dinner.

The Manager was awesome. He was very courteous and was able to seat us 30 minutes prior to our reservation. However, we (two adults on Valentines weekend) were sat by a large table of children playing on their electronic devices with the volume turned up. This made it very hard to talk across the table without shouting, and enjoying what was supposed to be a quiet dinner. The food was amazing, however, next time I will make sure I'm sat in an "adult" section - even if I have to wait longer.
Always a Special and Wonderful dining experience!
Never disappointed. A wonderful place for special occasions, romantic evenings, entertaining business associates as well as relatives. Excellent service and attention under supervision of Ganni and the entire staff; excellent meal creations by entire Chief staff including Alberto. Entire staff has been friendly and efficient. Some of the best desserts, meals, salads, appetizers, and beverage selections and food service we have ever experienced at any hotel or free standing restaurants in or outside of the Orlando area.
Menu had a great variety of foods with a combination of different vegetables. Staff was friendly and knowledgable of menu choices.

The service was excellent. They found out it was our anniversary and gave us a glass of champagne and a dessert. The food was amazing! ! Thank you.
Anniversary dinner perfection
Had an amazing dinner for our wedding anniversary. Server was exceptional--knowledgeable, funny, personable. He knew and responded to the fact that it was a special occasion for us. Every food item was exceptional from my wife's beet salad to my rich, creamy carrot soup soup, both of our main courses (I had the lamb chop special which was astoundingly good) and the excellent (and reasonably priced) bottle of wine. Dessert assortment was also fantastic. Overall, an exceptional dining experience.
The meal was terrible the pasta I ordered was nothing more than a bowl of macaroni with some red sauce that tasted like a can of ragu with burnt bacon . Yuk trip advisor should be ashamed to even rate the place

Great food. You have to try the deep fried olives!
A fresh Florida take on traditional favorites. Had the wonderful salad Verde with its surprising pairing of avocado and pistachio flavors, and the ravioli with lemon cream sauce which was lighter and more refreshing than expected.
