  • A little pricey

    The food was ok. Thought the prices were a little hight for pasta. It must be the NY rents that make places charge so much.

  • Good food, not good service
    by  on 01/08/2011

    Been here a few times, as I live in the neighborhood. The food is pretty good, but I always get the same waiter who has an attitude. He didn't tell us about the special soup. When I asked of there was another soup besides what was on the menu, he then told me it was lentil soup. I asked what else was in it, but he didn't know and just said it was creamy. Creamy lentil soup? When I said I'd pass, he seemed annoyed that I didn't order an appetizer, though I did have a glass of wine. My friend did get an appetizer but no wine, and again, he seemed annoyed. Her salad came with the dressing on it, even though she asked for it on the side. Besides taking our order, the waiter did nothing else. He didn't serve the food, check to see if we were enjoying it, or clear the food. Another waiter brought the dessert menu. Bad attitude and sub-par service would definitely makes me not want to return. Too bad - I live across the street!

    i don""t recommend this place because the waiter took away my dessert before while i was eating it. And the owner asked us to hurry up and eat and that he needed the table for the next customers while my friends and i were still eating!!!!

  • The best italian food on Broadway
    by  on 06/19/2010

    I visited Luce twice this summer with my friends. Every time, we enjoyed eating black linguini, homemade ravioli and drinking very good italian vine. Service was very good too, waiters and menagers were very friendly every time.

  • Go if you have nowhere else to go

    Went to Luce to try it out as it's in the neighborhood. At 8:30 on a Thursday the place was about 2/3 empty, which probably signalled ""stay away"" and would have if I weren't intent on giving it a chance. \r \r The baby octopus was a good idea but very poorly executed. It was tart and lemony to the point of making one's face scrunch. \r \r I ordered the Salmon medium rare and it came back well done. Any restaurant that can't cook salmon to order is subpar. \r \r The service was brusque and unfriendly. \r \r The good: the space is interesting. My companion said the pasta was ok. Lesson: if you have to go, stick with the pasta. Don't trust them to cook your seafood.

  • Great wines, wonderfull food, and great servie
    by  on 10/10/2009

    Last week my wife and I happened to stumble on to this lovely Italian Restaurant after a movie at Lincoln Theatre. We had a wonderful dinner especially the \r Spaghetti with shrimp and broccoli rabe. The Goat cheese salad with baby spinach was also outstanding.\r We rally enjoyed the atmosphere and the service was good. The place was very busy and all the tables were full. We shared a nice bottle of Chardonnay which the waiter suggested. It was a very good choice. The desserts were delicious. My only concern was the weight I gained from finishing the generous portions they served us. Considering the location this is a bargain. We shall return. Frequently...
