This is a little piece of heaven and we are lucky enough to have it right on our doorstep. The food is superb. After visiting Italy and sampling most of the food, it was like we had been transported straight back. Utterly delicious menus and the ambience and service is outstanding. By far our favourite restaurant in Richmond. Superb. Highly... More

My wife and I ate here on a Saturday night. The staff where very friendly and chatty, the food served was typically Italian dishes. We had mozzarella salad to start followed by the lasagne and a Sausage ragu which were very nice. I would definitely come back to see how the rest of the menu measures up. Prices were reasonable...

Five of us, found a corner in the tiny garden. We all had starters, primi and desserts. Delicious, and no one disappointed: every plate emptied apart from the detritus of shellfish. Portions generous. Service was relaxed, friendly and efficient. As the evening got darker, more and more candles appeared on the table, so that we could see what we were... More

We sat in the garden at the back which on a summer evening was perfect. The restaurant offers bistro atmosphere inside with open windows bringing life to that space. A refreshing rose wine set us up. The bread offering was limited and could have been better. Starters and main courses were delicious and well presented. The evening was flowing well... More

Thank you for your lovely comments , it's very much appreciated. We always offer complimentary bread , usually pan carasau a sardinian flatbread and one other such as focaccia or olive bread . Unfortunately seeing its complimentary we have to keep our choice to a minimum. It does change daily thigh together with the menu. I am really glad you... More

Had a really lovely evening at this small independent restaurant with my partner. We sat in the small courtyard at the back on a warm summers evening and, for the evening, we really thought we were on holiday in Italy. The food was excellent. We shared an octopus salad, and an amazing seafood linguini followed by perfectly grilled fish. The... More

We had booked a table, so they knew there were 13 of us for dinner at 7.30. We were outside in The tiny court yard, which was our choice. We knew the service could be on the slow side so we ordered platters to share to make things easier for them and they arrived in a reasonable amount of time.... More

Oh dear I seem to be at odds with other reviewers. First of all may I say the restaurant is lovely, staff are charming, but my husband and I were a little underwhelmed by the food. A starter of scallops arrived in the shell, all different sizes, all overcooked. Free range chicken in breadcrumbs was perfectly nice but a bit... More

Have been to Luna di Luca three times now & really like it. It's an independent place (which Richmond lacks), has great Italian food and really good wine. The owner always seems to recommend one of the cheaper wines, which is refreshing, and they're always good. Great location on the Hill and away from town, plus way better than 90%... More
