About

Established in 2006, Luce San Antonio is one of San Antonio’s premier destinations for authentic Italian cuisine crafted by Neapolitan owner and chef Joe Buonincontri.

Luce has become a local favorite featuring many traditional dishes.  Flavors which often bring our guests back to their best memories of Italian specialties.  Our menu consists of many Buonincontri family recipes and recipes brought back from travel to Italy.
Fresh fish, meats and produce expound throughout Luce’s offerings and a focus on the finest ingredients are what make Luce special.  House made Gnocchi, Italian rice balls and homemade Mozzarella are just a few examples our passion for the finest Italian food.

The word Enoteca means wine library. The walls of the entire restaurant are covered with wine bottles as you would expect books to cover the walls of a library.  Wine is a very important part of an experience at Luce, with over 125 choices from our wine list available to you.

My goal for this restaurant to create a warm environment for all guests that is typical of a true Italian heritage.
