The highlight was the gelato

The wine seemed flat. It was not as good as it used to be and it costs 5 dollars for five samples. That is a rip. The chicken salad was just o.k. It was more like a chicken fajita on top of a bed of lettuce with not ripe enough tomatoes. But the gelato was amazing!

This amazing restaurant has traditional pizza with delicious pasta selections and great wine (tasting and ordering). The hand made gelato flavors offered change all the time and no one leaves Luna Rosa without feeling they have experienced something wonderful.

This is a really great place to stop in and enjoy a wood fired pizza and some local wine! If you happen to be there on a Monday you can get a one typing pizza for only $5.95-a real bargain! The only down side is the restaurant is very loud and cold most of the time.

Tasty pizza and can get it with eggplant. Had wine with it and it was fun to see all of the families with babies there. Service fast and friendly.

Normally I would look to Mexican food when in New Mexico but after being in the southwest for the past week I was looking for an alternative. So Italian caught my eye and Luna Rossa Winery and Pizzeria was recommended by the hotel staff. Located right off I10 at exit 142 sits a small and very busy restaurant. Upon entry... More

Luna Rosa is a must for anyone that enjoys a Great glass of wine with their pizza. Mondays are busy so go before 5:30pm. If you truly enjoy a fine wine ask the owner for his recommendation. You will not be sorry! We enjoy the 2009 Reserve Aglianico. WOW, really special.

Tasty, fresh and reasonably priced. The house salad was a lovely fresh greens with crumbled feta/dried cranberries/vegetables and the Americana pizza had thin crust with just the right cheese and pepperoni. Very satisfying.

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
