Loved it!

We had dinner here. Good pizza. Nice appetizers with the cheese plate and antipasto. We had a bottle of their cabernet and it was good. We would go back.

This is our favorite pizza in town. It's cooked in a wood burning oven, which makes all the difference. We lived in Naples, Italy for 4 years and this is the closest we can get to real Italian pizza taste. We hit an off night once, but every other time it's been great. And the gelato is to die for...as... More

We have eaten here almost every Sunday for the last year. I love love love their patio. We stay for several hours without feeling like we are taking up a table. I have had the salmon every time, either as a salad or with pasta if I am really hungry. I ask for it well done with a little extra... More

Luna Rossa Winery & Pizzeria is the place to go for pizza, Italian entrees, good wine and of course, home made gelato. Add to that the hospitality of the staff and you have the perfect spot for a cozy, enjoyable meal. Monday's pizza special draws a large crowd so be sure to get there early.

If you want real good Italian, make a stop by Luna Rossa on Avenida de Mesilla. From the pasta, paninni sandwiches, pizza and calzones, the flavors are very authentic. Can't beat the $5 Pizza Mondays. Any other day, you can eat for under $20 for two (plus drinks and tip). Make sure you save room for the in-house made gelato.... More

My BF and I stopped at Luna Rossa for lunch last week and ordered a pizza. I wasn't expecting much, but the pizza was great. I could tell that the crust was hand made with a wonderful yeasty flavor like real home made! The toppings were generous and fresh. We also had a house salad which was very good. Prices... More

Luna Rosa winery makes the best red wines in the entire state. They also serve great food. The sauce is tasty with a good balance between sweet and savory. The Quattro Fomage pizza has fantastic flavor with all 4 cheeses working together beautifully. The Margherita pizza was classic with strips of fresh basil and cherry tomatoes. The bruschetta was great.... More

The place is cold and uninviting. The food is okay, nothing to brag about and a bit on the expensive side.

The Pizza is outstanding along with the homemade style desserts and Gelato. The wines are not bad either, you just need to sample them to find the one you like. The reds go well with the Pizza. On Mondays the pies are only $5 (one topping) with $1 add-ons.

We were not convinced to try the pizza or restaurant but after many friends recommended it we finally tried it. We love it and go at least twice a month. The pizza is wonderful and so is the salmon salad. A very generous portion of salmon freshly grilled not dried out. It gets crowded and can be loud during prime... More
