I eat here every six months or so. The food is pleasant, the service very attentive. The decor is a bit dreary, despite the umbrellas and potted plants on the sidewalk dining terrace. This is a good choice for business, if you have to eat in Middletown

We come to Luce every month with a friend. The atmosphere is sophisticated (damask tablecloths and napkins). We've never had a dish we didn't enjoy. As much attention is paid to the presentation as to the taste. Their nightly specials are not to be missed.

Let me start this review by saying I expect a lot from a restaurant. The experience has to be pretty top notch to get 5 stars from me, especially from a full service restaurant where I have to include service in the mix. From start to finish, the meal my daughter and I had last night met all of my... More

My date and i got tenderloin tips, with mashed potato, grilled shrimp and my favorite veal scappolini with wild mushrooms. Tips were a bit overcooked. Mashed potatoes were flavorful with roasted garlic. Onion rings were lightly breaded and tasty. Shrimp were good. Veal Scallopene... More

Recently visited Luce's for a family birthday. The food was excellent but thought it was a little pricey.

Good place to eat. They have prix fixe menu that is good giving you appetizer salad and main course. I liked the food. The service was OK, but on weekends that could use additional personnel. When we told the waiter that the olive oil they give to dip the bread was bitter, he immediately said it came from Liuzzi, and... More

My first time here .. we went there at around 1 in the afternoon and even though their parking lot was full there was hardly anyone in the place. Waite staff were very good. The lunch selection was fair and priced right I think. The food wasn't a huge splash but it was fair to middle in taste. I think... More

We have been to this restaurant many times when travelling through Middletown. Although Middletown has many fine restaurants we always return here. Our most recent afternoon experience was for a family celebration of the scion's 94th birthday. There were 9 of us. We showed up without a reservation. We were immediately seated a a huge circular table in the solarium... More
