Busy Italian restaurant in the heart of the market area. Had the pizza Quattro Stagioni (spelling from memory). Excellent pizza, enough for one teenager or two adults. Definitely recommend having a Condino as an aperitif, non-alcoholic but a nice change from an Aperol Sptitz. Staff...was friendly and efficient.More

It’s our second time at Luce restaurant. The place ambience and service is very good. The pizza is average, maybe will order pasta next time. It’s usually very crowded, so better to reserve.

Fantastic pizza especially the gluten free. Staff were so lovely especially as we were very late for our table and they went out of their way to accommodate us. A traditional Italian with a lovely atmosphere. Would highly recommend.

Amazing experience! Best Italian food in the city!! But they are *always* busy, so you must make a reservation. My partner and I had tried to dine at Luce the previous night, but they were busy and it was an hour wait so we went...somewhere else.... big mistake! After that poor experience we rushed over to Luce for a quick tiramisu (delicious!) and then made sure we booked a reservation for the next night. Our meal was fantastic from start to finish. The salad was fresh and the dressing nice and acidic. My spicy salsiccia pizza came out hot and bubbling, with crispy sausage slices, beautifully melted mozzarella, and perfectly leoparded crust, which had the perfect amount of chew and body to it. The wine list was extensive, but I just went with a glass of the Sangiovese and felt quite content. My partner's seafood strozzapreti was similarly prepared beautifully. The pasta was freshly made and expertly cooked -- the perfect chew and body and density you expect from a handmade meal. The clams and mussels swam happily in a light sauce of white wine, garlic and olive oil, to give a feel of both richness and lightness in every bite. Then for dessert we shared a slice of the tiramisu and the torta della nonna -- each were amazing in their own respects. The light airy creaminess of the tiramisu along with the hit of espresso at the bottom let's you enjoy each bite so quickly, you'll be surprised how fast the large piece disappears. And the torta has a perfect mix of vanilla custard, lemon essence, and a light almost cakey crust. Truly an excellent meal for a very affordable price... Our only regret is that we were not longer in Bern to try more of the other items on the menu! Everything looks amazing, and you will no doubt have a great experience here :) Buon Appetito!More

Delicious freshly made food. Plenty of capable waitstaff so service is excellent. Clearly a very popular place as it was booked out but they kindly squeezed us in on a table that had been reserved for a later time. Highly recommend if you want very...high quality Italian food and great service.More

My absolute favourite place to eat in Bern! Food is amazing! - delicious and beautifully presented! And very generous portions too! The service is quick, attentive and friendly. The setting is lovely; rustic in the original restaurant, and tres chic in the new one. I...visit Bern few times a year, and stay there for a minimum of two weeks at a time. So I visit Luce at least 3 times a week for dinner; also pop in for a drink and a pud. I was pleasantly surprised that the staff remembered me when I went back after a few months. All in all - I like EVERYTHING about the place. It is the people who work there that make it so special!More

Very nice overall experience, really worth the visit. One bubble less : it was extremely busy and I asked for a traditional carbonara without the cream, probably not the best idea judging by the reaction of our waiter...and the carbonara. It tasted super, the spaghetti...were perfect but it did lack pepper and was really very dry (pasta water would have made it creamy). Again, I did ask for something special on a very busy evening, I should have known better. I find it sad though that with such wonderful food and recipes (Trüffel pasta absolutely fantastic) they decided to do the carbonara less traditional and more to please those who have "always" had it so. Will go back to try other dishes: the pizzas looked wonderful and I saw a couple of fish pass by which really made my mouth water.More

We ordered the tagliatelle with porcini mushrooms with truffle oil and the fresh pasta alla scoglio (clams, mussels, etc.) in a white wine sauce with some cherry tomatoes and some chilli peppers. Both dishes had nice flavors and the chill peppers provided a nice bite...to the fresh pasta and seafood! Our server (Lina?) was very professional and extremely outgoing and friendly, we had a nice conversation with her as the lunch rush was over...would recommend and come back..!More

Good quality food, great choice and good atmosphere, driven by charming waiters/waitresses. The tagliata di manza and the pizzas we ordered were really good. The meat was nice and juicy, the pasta and the vegetables were tasty on the sides, and the pizza very thin...crusted with a big side. The desert (Tiramisu) is to die for. Recommended when you visit Bern.More
