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.

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!!!!

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.

Pros: the best pasta, the best vine

We keep going to LUCE every time we go to Lincoln Center, and love it each time. Their service is that true Italian attentive service to comfort every customer. Their fish selection is fresh, and whole roasted Branzino never dissappoints. Pastas are homemade. We are so glad to find this great place whenever we go to Lincoln Center.

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\n\r\nThe 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\n\r\nI ordered the Salmon medium rare and it came back well done. Any restaurant that can't cook salmon to order is subpar. \r\n\r\nThe service was brusque and unfriendly. \r\n\r\nThe 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.

This place was recommended to me by my friends, and after going there I can certainly recommend it to others. The service is great, as it is hard to find such service in a busy area. The atmosphere is relaxing, and the decor looks calming and nice. I had the smoked salmon for an appetizer, and it was very tastie. My girlfriend had the gnocchi, and I had to try it because it had three cheeses! It was very good. I had the taglierini with chicken, and could not be happier. My buddy had the veal, and ate everything on the plate. The wine was teriffic. I overall think the food was delicious, we all had a good time. If you are hungry, want great food, and just feel like you are in the middle of a happening area and place, this is the spot.

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\nSpaghetti with shrimp and broccoli rabe. The Goat cheese salad with baby spinach was also outstanding.\r\nWe 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...

I went here this past saturday night and was amazed at how well we were treated. The pasta i ordered was cooked perfectly. They sat us quickly and the service was very helpful when choosing our meal. The Dessert was great too. I would definitely come back and try some of the other options.

Brunch at Luce is one of the few things that gets me out of bed on a Saturday. The food is so good and the staff is lovely. They offer a list of things that you actually want to eat. Great neighborhood spot, but also worth a trip!

I went there Saturday night with my girlfriend and was impressed with not only the food, but the service was top notch and the atmosphere was wonderful. We thought for sure we were some place in Italy instead of in the heart of NYC. I have recommended this restaurant to many people and I have yet to have anyone dissatisfied. The outside sitting was wonderful also!!!

I had dinner in Luce two days ago with a friend who recommended it. I've been to a lot of restaurants in Italy and I have to say this one comes pretty close. The friendly staff, and just the warm atmosphere in it, made the lunch quite enjoyable. I'm pretty sure that next week I'll be going there with my girlfriend :)

We chose Luce for Ladies night and will definitely come back again. They really pay attention to the little things that make their food great and the waiter was very knowledgeable about wine pairings. BTW this place is not at all pretentious. And the service, well, go see for yourself...

This is a great addition to my neighborhood. A true Italian restaurant that I will be visiting quiet often. Their outside sidewalk cafe is so cool.
