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.
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.

Our favorite restaurant at Bonnet Creek. We have never been disappointed in the meal, service, and atmosphere. We would highly recommend trying this restaurant And ask for Stefan for your waiter. His individual attention makes your meal unforgettable as well as the food!!
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!
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
