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

Following a visit to Wesleyan, we had lunch here, not knowing anything about the restaurant. It's in the central shopping/dining street in town. The food was top notch, fairly priced, and I would highly recommend it. It has various pasta, salad and sandwich selections, and everything we tried was great.

My wife and I along with other Colby College swim parents had dinner reservations. The table was nicely set to accommodate everyone. The wait staff was very professional and courteous. We arrived rather late and some of us opted for several appetizers instead of a full dinner. Everyone seemed very pleased with their selections, which included crab cakes, French onion... More

Met friends for lunch at Luce. First time here for all of us. I started with a Hot & Dirty martini which was made perfectly. Appetizer was the escargot special. No words to describe this awesome dish. Main dish was the Signature Luce salad to which I added grilled salmon. Outstanding! Finished with chocolate lava cake. If I had one... More
