I went here a couple of weeks ago on a date and loved it. It was a charming little place with a wonderful atmosphere. The food was delicious! My only complaint was that the tomatoes on my salad were a little mushy... I guess tomatoes are out of season this time of year, though. The pasta we ordered was delicious, though much too large of portions to eat at once... I took a lot home! I would definitely go back.

i love italian food and have been wanting to try this restaurant. the server was less than friendly. never asked us how our food was and when prompted for recommendations he could supply none. there are much better places in the area. don't waste your time or money.

I'll be quick... the food was excellent and the atmosphere was genuine. A great place for a date or a group of 4-6 people. Service was very quick and friendly, but not too intense.

I took some out of town guests to this spot. The food was great. Dress is pretty casual, we went early so there was no need for reservations. We had house salads (LOVED the vinaigrette, it was nice and tangy - but beware if you prefer a more mild dressing!) I had the gnocchi with asiago cream sauce and it was aMAZing. My guests had the farfalle and veal. I tried both, and each was just amazing. This place sticks to its roots. Great food, no need to be innovative and trendy. No complaints about service either. There is a small parking lot available for use, but the green line Ashland stop is blocks away.

My wife and I are hockey fans and we started going to La Luce before games as it is on the way from the Northern Suburbs. Still do during the season Atmosphere: Imagine eating at a small Italian restaurant during the time of Al Capone and Prohibition. Narrow 40 feet wide and very deep, but offers great charm. Food: Exceptionally reasonable prices. Food is very fresh, especially the pasta. Northern Italian and humongous portions. Lot's of variety. Six pages of choices. Definitely a doggy bag place. Wine list: very reasonable with nothing I saw over $60.00 for a bottle. Most bottles were in the $20 - $30 range. I usually choose the house cabernet (California) at $6.00 a glass as my liver can't take a full bottle any more. Service was some of the best I have received anywhere, even from some of the best (and expensive) restaurants in Chicago. What is nice is that it appears that allthough a waiter is assigned to a couple of tables, if they see someone at another waiter's table needing something, they will jump right in. Nice touch. Have not eaten there for lunch, but I was told by the owner that with the gentrification of the area, more people are coming in for lunch.
