At La Luce®, the preparation of your meal has begun long before you arrive. Donna Scala has earned a reputation throughout the culinary community as a food purist, and her high standards of excellence shine through in everything from the salt on the table to the grass-fed beef. Dishes are prepared with the freshest local ingredients, and contain nothing more or less than they need for absolute perfection and balance.
Combining Italian tradition and Californian innovation - and with a liberal dash of Napa Valley’s unique approach to freshness and flavor thrown in – the menu at La Luce® effortlessly marries old-world technique with nouveau chic. Thin pizzas are piled high with creamy mozzarella cheese and bright wisps of basil. Perfectly balanced lasagna becomes an edible architectural creation staggering sweet ricotta with savory marinara and delicately spiced meatballs. Every dish has been painstakingly crafted to provide the ultimate dining experience. Our food invites diners to savor the truly unique taste of fresh Italian cuisine prepared the way it was meant to be: hearty, yet not overwhelming. And featuring a Trattoria-style wine menu - as well as signature liquor drinks – our passion for perfection carries through to our drinks and spirits.
We invite you to come experience fresh ingredients crafted to provide a singular experience that will become your standard of excellence for years to come.
