Hip Warehouse District pizzeria that's a perennial favorite with the late-night set.

Unbelievable food! – Over 50 toppings (we counted), hand tossed dough and a great beer selection. We came down on an early Sunday and to our amazement they even do BRUNCH! It was awesome, try the Portobella Benedict. Anyone who doesn't like Pizza Luce is anti good food.

PIZZA LUCE= Amazing pizza, great service, and fun family friendly atmosphere!!! – Luce is the filet mingon of all pizza restaurants. I have been a fan of the locally owned restaurant for years and have yet to have one bad thing to say. The pizza and appetizers are great along with a really good wine list. Very resonabley priced and fun atmosphere...

...lets not forget the year ..2008..., folks with tattoos and unique style can be VERY successful and most importantly happy!!!! If your a judgemental prude then this is not your spot, maybe go for delivery. And any review I have ever read where there is actually a complaint I just have to think that is from a person who complains about everything and is never satisfied, get over yourself! PIZZA LUCE ="DA BOMB" of all pizzas. Now eat that!

Waaaaay overrated – The tons of hype is one thing this place does not live up to.

I've tried this place a number of times and I just don't see it. The pizza base is where the problems begin for me, and the toppings do it no favours either. Flavourless... If you want pizza in this town go to the Monte Carlo and have their flatbread appetizer pizza.

UNDERCOOKED FOOD! – RE: Delivery - I ended up with cold soggy undercooked pizza dough with cold veggies and meat toppings. Gross! I had to recook the pizza every time before my family could eat it. I even tried to order "thin" crust. Instead I got thick crust not fully cooked throughout the pizza. The chicken wings have been under cooked, whereas the meat does not come away from the bone. Had to recook also. Serious health concerns about this food. Buyer Beware! Luce' may been the "rage" in the early 2000's. "Not" no more. I have not wasted time "eating in" their resturants. Sounds like they have a lot of "punks" with attitude waiting on you. Undercooked food can make a person "stuck up." CARROT CAKE IS GREAT!

Good pizza, incredibly fast – I was trapped at a hotel downtown (I won't mention any names, but it rhymes with um... Barriott?), and they had stopped serving their in-room menu early (why, I don't know).... anyhow, the desk clerk recommended this place, and the pizza was very good. I had the "Luce", which had good flavor. Didn't particularly care for the crust, but the wife did, so maybe I'm just picky. If you have the choice between pizza luce and papa johns or pizza hut -- get luce every time. Delivery took literally 8 minutes, which is ridiculous and welcomed.

Good Pizza, TERRIBLE service! – The pizza is very tasty, but on 2 different occasions, we sat for 15 minutes while being completely ignored before we just got up and left. Nobody made eye contact, nobody said "I'll be right with you, or anything." In fact, the last time (which is coincidentally the last time), the hostess even came by to pick up our menus and we hadn't even gotten a drink yet. I would have been able to let it go if they were busy, but they weren't!. 2 different occasions this happened! But if you can handle the awful service, the pizza is delicious.

Same ingredients - different pizza! – I LOVE LOVE LOVE Pizza Luce. However...I just want to vent about it for one second. I always order the same pizza: Bianca with sun dried tomatoes and chicken - very light on the cheese and you can let the sun dried tomatoes burn a bit on the top.

(Yes, I am that annoying person!) So I always take a moment to explain how I like it...and the Luce in Uptown has no problem fulfilling my order every time - the pizza is always amazing! But each time I order from the downtown Luce (I won't call again after today) they always manage to provide the most inconsistent pizza. I had no idea a Bianca with sun-dried tomatoes and chicken could be made in so many ways. Today - expecting the pizza I imagined (light cheese) all of my ingredients are buried in cheese and the sun-dried tomatoes are wet, crust barely cooked. We had to put the pizza in the oven to cook it a bit more...

Sorry to be a complainer - but you know - you fork out your dough and expect what you order...

OK pizza, service sub par especially at uptown location – The pizza's so-so. Lame crust, unexciting sauce, but with a wide variety of toppings. Vegan/vegetarian options are a plus. The artichoke dip and desserts are great. The problem is the service. It's barely OK at their downtown and Franklin Ave locations, but the Uptown restaurant's service is consistantly terrible; orders made wrong, rude and absent servers. Truely awful.

LOVE IT!!!!!!!!! – I will highly recommend this place to EVERYBODY! If you're a meat eater, I suggest the Bear Pizza. It has 5 or 6 different kinds of meat and tastes soooooooooo yummy!
