  • "We found La Luna Rossa quite a while ago when they were near the college. The new location is easier to get to, with sufficient parking. The family-run restaurant is a treat and they made us feel so welcome. The spicy calamari is so good, we considered (jokingly) having it for dessert."

  • "It's was an average restaurant, the food was alright. We had the pasta overpriced for what you received and under sauced. The place was nice would give it another chance just wouldn't have the pasta. The hockey game in the corner absolutely ruined the dining experience."

  • "As always the best authentic Italian food in the city"

  • "Took my Mom there for dinner, I ordered gnocchi pomodoro, Mom had seafood soup and my boyfriend ordered the risotto. My gnocchi was so very disappointing. Over cooked and mushy, mom's soup tasted good but disagreed with her stomach when she got home. My boyfriends risotto was under cooked even though he ordered it the minute he sat down, to give them more than enough time to prepare. Sevice was fantastic, there were 2 waiters for 2 tables in the entire restaurant. I normally complain (having worked many years in the industry), as I feel the restaurant would want the feed back but my boyfriend hates it when I do that."

  • "We very much enjoyed our entire evening...food, wine, service...and very reasonably priced Will definitely return"

  • "Picked this with the very loose criteria of 'Italian', 'in the north of downtown' and 'on Open Table'. Driving up, it's an unassuming stucco building in an unassuming part of town. Walk in, and you enter a genuine italian bistro. Pellegrino and wine on each table, friendly service and an impressive range on the menu. House wine is excellent. The appetizers were authentically sicilian and amazingly flavourful. The main course (rack of lamb special) was absolutely spectacular; perfectly prepared, lovely reduction, and vegetables with flavour, not just included as an afterthought. Spectacular meals that foodies will enjoy. Will definitely go back."

  • "Nice little restaurant, little over priced, $20 for gnocchi with sauce"

  • "We have been to this restaurant several times and the food has generally been good with good service. This past weekend, we decided to try it again and while the food was good, we had to wait 1 hour for our dinner. I'm not sure what the delay was, as the restaurant was not full and we did not have any special requests. Contrary to the wait staff's claim that "it is worth the wait" - I respectfully disagree."

  • "We are always looking for a nice little Italian restaurant that doesn't require us driving to the other end of the city and close enough to home that we don't feel it will be too expensive if we decide to indulge and take a taxi. Ristorante La Luna Rossa did that for us this weekend. Something new, something close and a pleasant little place to hang out with our daughter for an evening. The service was very good as was the food. There seemed to be quite a few young families there so if you have young ones this would be a good choice. Ours are no longer young but still loves to be taken out for Italian as often as possible :-)"

  • "I was able to book lunch, the day of my customer meeting which was fantastic. The restaurant is a wonderful spot to take customers for lunch, as it was very quiet, the food was excellent, and the service outstanding."

  • "Besides the food being amazing and super fresh, La Luna Rossa consistently has some of the best service at any restaurant in Calgary. I've eaten here at least 40 times and have never had a dining experience that didn't leave me totally satisfied. This is a wonderful family-run business that just keeps doing the little things rights. Best upper-scale Italian restaurant, and one of the best overall restaurants in Calgary."

  • "My husband and I were last at La Luna Rossa when they were located on 14th street. We thought that it had closed up and were very disappointed, until we realized they had just moved! We went last week for a much deserved date night! The food and atmosphere were as wonderful as we remembered. Our server was very attentive and helpful. We cannot wait to go back!!!!"

  • "First thing I noticed was that wine was $10/glass. Pretty pricey for an average pinot grigio. Started off with appetizer calamari, was simple fried topped with a spicy tomato sauce. Found Calamari to be chewy and lacked a good flavor. For a main course we had Gnocchi and the Luna Rossa (spaghetti w mixed seafood). Gnocchi was in a very thick white sauce and a healthy portion was given. The Luna rossa came with mussels, shrimp and squid. Once again squid was chewy as was the same as appetizer. Mussels did not taste good, kinda off. The only think that was good were the shrimp and the spaghetti, however if you want something authentically Italian, I don't believe this is the place."
