This is a tapas restaurant which means they try to sell you multiple small plates for a sum total that would be outrageous if they charged it for a single entree. I've been to Spain and experienced real tapas. This is a marketing approach rather...More

We visited this place with a Groupon coupon. Everything there was over-priced! Food quality is just so-so at the best. Not worth it.

We went to Luce Nuovo recently when, quite frankly, we could not get into another restaurant in downtown Powell in a timely manner. The room was not crowded so we were seated quickly, greeted quickly, served quickly and were gone quickly. The prices were definitely...More

Overpriced, inconsistent, unimaginative - a far cry from what it started out to be. So-so service, so-so food. Refused to honor a discount coupon. Flop City, as the empty parking lot might indicate.

OK, this local restaurant has gone through a few ownership/management changes in the past few years. Had it's ups an downs. Hadn't been there in probably 6 months. Went tonight and have to say, it was very good. Not excellent, and I'll get to that....More
