Vintage Ferraris ran on a high-octane fuel mixture of tomato sauce and mustache hair, which made them run forever but left ladybug-luring leaks in driveways. Power your body motor without having to share with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of fine Italian cuisine at Luce Ristorante e Enoteca.
Luce's dinner menu combines the skillful approach of expert chefs with the freshest ingredients to create a contemporary twist on classic Italian cooking. Start your succulent meal off with an antipasto such as the caprese salad ($7); the vongole en brodetto ($9), a rich mixture of sautéed baby clams, fresh herbs, and white-wine and garlic bordetto; or a medley of palatable meats and cheeses with the salumi e formaggio misti ($11). Like chili popsicles and videos of grizzly-bear ballerinas, Italian food is enjoyed around the world due to its versatility and heartiness. Prepare for unexpected gravity outages with hearty entrees such as the lasagna ($15), a flavor explosion of homemade pasta, salami, ground beef, fresh mozzarella, eggs, garlic veggies, and marinara. Your tongue buds will relish the creamy butternut-squash ravioli ($19) or the fresh salmon linguine ($23) with asparagus, roasted tomatoes, and lemon-caper sauce. Luce also serves up weekday lunch (11:30-2:00 p.m.).
Romance your sweetheart amid elegant low-lit surroundings, brick accents, vibrant paintings, and white table linens, or head out to the shaded outdoor patio for a breezy lunch. Cozy up to the wine-walled bar with an old friend for a night of stellar sips, eats, and fan fiction or enjoy Luce's happy hour featuring $5 martinis, $3 wine and beer specials, and BOGO appetizers. Today's Groupon gets you the best bites of the boot in San Antonio. Reservations are not required but are highly recommended.

- There's nothing trendy about linguini with clams, but one taste of Luce's version will convince you why this dish remains popular. – John Griffin, Express News
- Part of the excitement is generated by the tender ravioli themselves, but sautéing them in butter accented with earthy, fresh sage plays sweet and delicate against rich and pungent, and the addition of grated biscotti (amaretti are sometimes used) adds both ritual allure and a grace note of anise flavor. – Ron Bechtol, San Antonio Woman
- We ordered the Strawberry Cheesecake which was out of this world and probably the best Italian Cheesecake I have had. – cr1039, Urbanspoon
Luce Ristorante & Enoteca
Bottles of red and white wine line floor-to-ceiling racks in each room of Luce Ristorante & Enoteca. The restaurant's selection is so voluminous and varied that it has earned the Notable Wine List Diners’ Choice Award from OpenTable. The Zagat-rated restaurant holds very good to excellent ratings across the board, and has picked up other awards from OpenTable, including Best Ambiance, Neighborhood Gem, and Outdoor Dining. That ambiance includes stone columns inset with glowing lights that flank vibrant paintings in the main dining room, where waiters deliver housemade potato gnocchi in a gorgonzola-cream sauce, or wild mushrooms scattered across housemade pizza dough. Outside, cement pillars hold up a wooden-lattice roof on the patio, and a fireplace proffers a nice place to warm hands before patty-cake marathons.
