Description: I purchased this restaurant in April 2014. I am attempting to provide diners with a fine dining experience. We prepare your food from scratch as ordered. Our Chicken and Veal Parmigiana is pounded, breaded and cooked when ordered. Our Porto and Marsala is made when it is ordered and takes approximately 20 minutes to get to your table, so please, order your favorite beverage, try our fresh bread and our wonderful roasted garlic and prepare your palate for a wonderful dinner.

This restaurant recently changed owners, it is now called La Bella Luna, located in an old bank building. For a change of pace, this is an excellent Italian food restaurant in southern New Mexico. Try just splitting an entree with a small dinner salad as it was plenty and then have the most important part of the meal, the spumoni... More

Thank you Morris for stopping in at the restaurant and then the review. Since purchasing this restaurant in April I have been busy tweaking the recipes a little, fine tuning the wait staff, sprucing up a bit, listening and reading. My goal is to have a fine dining restaurant that my staff and Deming can be proud of. Once again,... More

Visited La Bella Luna 1/06/2015. 6:30 PM First negative was sign on door "Wait to be Seated" which took 15 minutes and in the meantime were not acknowledged. Another 10 minutes drink order was taken. Decafe coffee was ordered - was later informed they were out of decafe altogether and regular coffee was ordered. Our soup came after 50 minutes... More

Joe, I am so sorry you had such a horrible experience and I appreciate your input. I purchased this restaurant in April, spent almost one month in the kitchen with one of the prior owners learning all the recipes. At the end of May I formally took over running the restaurant. I spent some time tweaking some of the recipes... More

Good Italian menu, great wine list. It's a little "stilted" feeling--needs background music! The waitstaff was slow, but responsive when we needed something. It's a nice touch for a place like Deming.

Gari B, Owner at Palma's Italian Grill, responded to this review

Thank you for coming in and posting a review. I'm sorry to hear that the music was apparently off when you were here. It seems the player cycles through the music and shuts off and the staff doesn't realize it is off sometimes. Again, thank you and please come again....we have a very nice selection of music. More

On our way to Yuma Arizona, we stopped in Deming for the night and the hotel clerk recomended this restaurant. We were there last year for italian food but this year, with a new owner, we had a steak which was quite acceptable. Would return when possible

We've been going to Palma's since we moved into the area over 10 years ago. We haven't had a bad meal there but the one we go back for time and time again is 2 bowls of potato soup and a shared appetizer serving of the eggplant parmesan. It's filling enough for a dinner and oh so good!

We were directed to this resturant by the staff at the Hampton Inn and we were happy that we were. The food was delicious, the salad had a lot of mixed greens in it.

This restaurant is inside a historic bank building. Our waiter Andrew and other staff told us of the building and area history. Three of us shared three appetizers - shrimp cocktail, bruschetta, and crab cakes and we split a lunch portion of spaghetti. It was more than enough food. The shrimp were huge and tasty, and everything else was great.... More
