One of Billy Joel's favorite Long Island Italian restaurants, he says of Luce “That’s another really good one...I’m a local...I stay pretty local.”  Linda and Dominick, the proud owners of Luce Ristorante, graciously welcome you to dine in their beautiful and casual upscale restaurant.  They now offer their full menu on line so you can order direct from their website, and for your convenience they also deliver.

 

In Italian luce means “light of life.”  As the name suggests, the Tuscan setting is open and airy with warm inviting colors, subdued lighting, blond wood treatments, and graceful drapes framing tall windows.  Fresh flowers and candlelight add romance.  A double sided fireplace radiates a soft glow in the vestibule and the main dining room.  At the entrance, Caccippio family photos are affectionately displayed on the mantle.  You can reserve their Garden Room for your special event, and dine al fresco in their front or rear patios.

 

The extraordinary menu with nuovo Italian dishes are some of the best on Long Island.  They are true to form of simple wholesome Italian cooking with a Tuscan flair using the finest and freshest ingredients.  The menu is extensive and there are daily specials, but if you don’t see what you want, the talented kitchen staff will make it for you.  We enjoyed homemade spinach gnocchi with a savory veal and chicken ragu; and a special: Grilled Veal Chop with a hearty cognac and portobello mushroom sauce.  The carefully crafted wine list of mostly Italian and American labels pair well with the authentic Italian dishes.  Portions are large but leave room for their sensational homemade desserts.

 

Bring a date or bring the family for a memorable gourmet dining experience.  Luce Ristorante offers refined Tuscan Italian cuisine, fine wines, a knowledgeable and attentive staff, with a sophisticated European ambiance.  There's live music during the months of May, June, July, August and September.  Enjoy a "A Night In Venice" with Live Italian Jazz by the Paul Effman Ensemble.
