One of the best meals for a long time. The service was fantastic and the taster menu inspiration. Thanks also to the headwaiter for arranging appropriate wine to go with our meal. A very special occasion.

After visiting Villa Panza we have a light lunch. It was surprisingly very good for a museum restaurant. Only they have only 1 person for the service and that was too much for one person to serve all of us. There were 6 tables to...More

Looking for a nice place to eat we stumbled upon Luce by surprise, but how great it was! English speaking waiters, good wine and great food! The bill was a bit high, but the atmosphere, chef and the waiters were worth it!

Our menu a la carte springs from Chef Matteo Pisciotta's creative cousine, based on Italian and, in particular, on Varese regional traditions.Vegetable garden, orchard, park, 50 places, a crystal mezzanine hosting the kitchen table for a dinner with the Brigade de Cousine, a spring dinner in the old greenhouse, a classy pic-nic in the park, a bistrot business lunch.All of this, in our very special way.
