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

We attended a party and were able to taste many of the entrees, all were excellent. The calamari was memorable as was the white fish. My husband who is Italian a pretty picky loved everything too.

Enjoyed a lovely meal with a friend at Luce. We walked in on a Saturday night and luckily were able to grab a table without a reservation. To start we each had a salad; a Luce and a Caesar. Both were good but the Luce was uniquely delicious. The warm polenta croutons were amazing and complemented the spicy arugula really... More

The service was excellent here, the atmosphere was wonderful. We had had lunch here, the food was just good. Had calamari for an appetizer and it was very good, lightly breaded and fresh. Two salads and two sandwiches. The salads were good. Only two shrimp in one of them (although it did state that on menu, should be more), the... More

A prize located on Main Street, even has its own carpark. Heaven. I've now visited several times and must compliment the bar staff for preparing consistently good drinks at reasonable prices. Too many restaurants in town charge more without getting a good balance in the stir. The lounge staff aims to please. A good spot for either a light dinner... More

This place is great! It was my first time. We were greeted by the owner who promptly seated us. The wait staff were awesome! I started with the polenta crusted scallops which were fantastic! Followed that up with venison medallions with risotto, and summer squash. That was delicious! The traditional turkey dinner came with stuffing, potatoes, gravy and cranberry sauce.... More

It's hard to know how to rate this restaurant. The service was good. The ambiance is convivial, comfortable, and not too noisy. The food gives me pause. The dinner bread was a disappointment: generic, not particularly tasty, not crusty. The Mesclun salad was bland-tasting and overly generous in quantity. (Remember that Woody Allen joke?) Quite good, though, were the main... More
