excellent service, great seafood, a nice small restaurant, offered great gluten free options for us. will return again and again.
Absolutely delicious special! Had the halibut and gnocchi.. My colleague had the bison osso bucco! Wow. ... Impeccable service.
First time coming to La Luna Rossa with my friend. There is a dress code in effect so definitely come in something classier than a hoodie and ripped jeans.
Complimentary bread while you wait but if someone else orders an appetizer and you don't, be prepared to wait. In true European fashion if you get an appetizer, they'll bring it out, give you time to finish it, and then there will be a bit of a wait as they allow you to digest. This is when they'll start on your entrée. My suggestion is either to get an appetizer as well or be content with a lengthy wait.
The food itself is absolutely delicious. Cooked fresh and ready to order! The gnocchi gorgonzola is like little pillows of heaven. Definitely worth a trip just to try that. Since the space is small there is only one waiter but he's charming and attentive.
For the quality of food, the price is fair and definitely worth checking it out.
Great "quaint" Italian restaurant with a family charm.
The limited seating and great food explain why reservations on weekends (and I'm sure at other times) is a must.
A little pricey, but it's worth it for this experience.
It was a bit pricey but the food was delicious and the staff was very friendly.
I was quite surprised by the prices, and the fact bread came without fresh butter , to change from vegetables to pasta an extra 5 $ . The value was not here , and the food was ok but not stunning . I won' t be going back.
While the restaurant seems to be owned and operated by a nice family, the quality of the menu and the ambiance of the room do not justify the prices. The food was good, but not great. The menu was limited, without anything really jumping off the page and tempting the palate. The service was pleasant. The music when we first arrived was horrid pop music, but that was soon changed to something more suitable. The room smelled faintly of bleach. Can't see that we would go back, when there are so many other options.
Benny and his team have done it again. What an amazing meal. The service is top notch and every item we ordered was delicious. See you again very soon.
Great food and very friendly service. You are received at the door as if you are visiting friends. We have been to La Luna Rossa several times and were never disappointed with the food. It is a place where you can bring groups to celebrate a special occasion, bring your family for a birthday or an anniversary. There is no loud music to spoil the ambiance. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant without reservations.
The food was quite tasty but I thought a little pricey. Kind of a mom and pop shop where they really try to serve you. They just did a lot of etiquette faux pax that by the end of dinner kind of drove me nuts. Reaching across my wife to give me pepper, cleaning up our table while we're eating, using soda water to clean the table cloth among others. Food was great but this kind of took away from the evening.
Our group of 4 people very much enjoyed our dining experience. The food was delicious, the prices reasonable and the service was excellent. This neighborhood restaurant is family run with a great deal of TLC. We appreciated the variety on the menu and the small cozy atmosphere. We will return....again and again...
The food is fantastic and the service is even better. Pleasantly surprised the first time we went and went back a second time a week later to try more things on the menu. The second time was just as good as the first if not better. I'm used to going to all of the trendy/popular restaurants downtown. While this place doesn't really have the atmosphere those do, they make up for it in quality of service and exceptional food. Planning on becoming a regular for sure!
My husband and I went out to celebrate and as per usual were not disappointed. The service was impeccable, everyone is so friendly there and the food was delicious as always. We shared our favourite spicy calamari and the bruschetta. Both yummy. My husband had the special which was the game hen wrapped in bacon (amazing!) and I had the seafood risotto which was also very good and full of seafood. We had the dessert specials which were also very good. Already looking forward to our next visit.
From the moment you walk in to La Luna Rosa you feel right at home, from the ambience all the way to the layout. The friendly staff and the awesome food see reasons enough to keep coming back for more.
we have dined previously at La Luna Rossa, mostly at their old 14th st address. The new location is a little more upscale but the menu, and the service remains true to their core business. This is clearly a family run affair with the sons and daughters helping out their father in various capacities around the restaurant. This creates a very pleasant ambiance and it is very clear that the family is paying attention to every detail of the menu and the whole dining experience. We shared a number of appetizers, but the lamb meatballs in tomato sauce was the crowd favorite. The entrees were all well received and we shared an excellent tiramisu for dessert. The wine list is varied across a broad spectrum of price points with wonderful choices throughout. I mentioned that it is "kid-friendly" but my kids are a pretty quiet lot .
