La Luce (Orlando)
La Luce, Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek, 14100 Bonnet Creek Resort Lane, Orlando, Florida, 32821, (407) 597-3601.
Last night Jeff Eats (party of 6) ate at La Luce -an Italian restaurant located in the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek Hotel.
Just so you know, La Luce was “selected” in that Jeff Eats had a $300 Hilton -food/beverage credit that had to be used.
La Luce is your “typical” hotel- Italian restaurant- overpriced with mediocre food. If this joint wasn’t tied to/housed in -a hotel and had to fend for itself-my money says it wouldn’t last very long. Trust Jeff Eats on this one…hotel location, expense accounts, hotel “deal” promotions are what keeps La Luce in business.
Last night’s dinner- plain pizza, lasagna, ribeye steak, meatballs, chicken fra diavolo, lamb shank…just passable.
Printed below is La Luce’s “hype” on Hilton’s website www3.hilton.com.
All Jeff Eats can say- Hilton has some great copywriters..,
