Cuisine: European, Italian
At La Luce, the crisp salads, thin-crust pizzas and hearty, old world recipes (the tender-delicious rabbit cacciatore, hunter-style, over sumptuous ricotta gnocchi comes to mind) are designed to satisfy. And the setting, the swanky Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek, may be minutes from Disney World but La Luce's relaxing atmosphere is light years from the frenetic pace of the parks, ideal for a nice family dinner or romantic evening for two. Inspired by famed Napa Valley chef and restaurateur Donna Scala, La Luce fuses traditional Italian cuisine with the modern and creative flair of northern California to create special cuisine with ingredients that are often locally sourced. Be sure to note the art as you enjoy your wine or perhaps a Mediterranean-inspired cocktail; La Luce showcases original works by local artists on its walls.

Italian: "The butterscotch pudding is no joke. Order two. You won't want to share."
Best for Italian Because: La Luce's soothing atmosphere sets the tone and its food warms the belly. It's a nice hotel-based 180 from a day at the parks.
