I am planning to take my sister and parents out for an italian dinner...we've narrowed it to sapori trattoria and luce...any suggestions?

  1. I have been to both Sapori & Luce in the last few months. Both were enjoyable, but they are totally different experiences.
    Sapori is a good neighbourhood, family Italian restaurant. The food is very traditional Italian(tomato sauce is good, so is the veal, the seafood wasn't great). The atmosphere is comfortable and the service is friendly.
    Luce is a high-end, glamorous dining experience. The food is very creative and modern, with unusual ingredients and complex combinations. The service is efficient but formal, with a detailed recitation of all the components of a dish. The decor is very sleek & modern.
    I didn't pay for either dinner, but I think Luce must have been much more expensive.
