Was here on a business venture but had dinner with family. It was a surprise as most upscale restaurants in hotels are grossly overpriced. This was not. Service was impeccable. Personal, friendly, humorous and professional withOUT the worry of being over-pretentious. Would definitely dine here again. The only thing I would add would be a few more "familiar" comfort/pasta dishes for diners who are not too fond of trying new tastes. Overall, a great place.

The hostess was lovely and decorated the table since I had mentioned someone in our party was having a birthday. The place was very busy and our waiter had a number of tables. We were extrememly patient with him. He was not very friendly and never acknowledged how long it took us to receive service. I felt he treated the table as a second thought and was a bit demeaning. The place was lovely and the food good. We just missed out due to having a waiter with attitude. On the other hand the valet staff went above and beyond!!!

Another really fine meal at LaLuce! Great service, nice wine and beer list, very attentive to our young 5 year old daughter, and my salmon was likely the best I've ever had. And, of course, the signature butterscotch pudding - just ridiculously good!

This was our second visit to La Luce and once again we were extremely satisfied!! Our waiter Stefano went above and beyond in service. His recommendations were spot on. The Lamb shank was absolutely delicious! Our 14 year old grandson tried the ox tail soup and ate the entire bowl, our 2 year old loved the baby meatballs and spaghetti, there is something for every age group to enjoy. Must try the butterscotch pudding. Gianni the host was as gracious as ever. We will be enjoying many more dinners at La Luce in the future.

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.
