The wine flight ($20) paired with the 7-course Il Cibo Della Vita dinner at La Luce is a must!
A perfectly paced and curated feast, a wine-paired dinner is featured Friday & Saturday evenings at La Luce at Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek. Each weekend a new menu with exclusive offerings and recommended wine pairing is unveiled, featuring a selection of recipes only available during Food & Wine Weekends.
The beginning to the 7-course wine paired dinner at La Luce, this Roasted Pepper and Tomato Soup was extraordinary.
You're bound to have a few extra slices of this “Pesto” pizza to take home. Made with grilled zucchini, red onions, sundried tomato and goat cheese, this gourmet pie was even better warmed up for lunch the next day!
