Worried about negative reviews in early January I checked out the restaurant before deciding to eat there. Talked to the competent waitstaff first (were staying nearby) and came in for dinner later. There was a decent crowd there but no wait, the service was excellent and the food was very good too--up to the standard I've had on trips down... More

Having traveled to Italy three times and loved the food we were not expecting a similar experience in Truth Or Consequences, New Mexico. The dinner was superb by any measurement with the Braised Beef Risotto the star of the evening. I can't wait for our next visit!

My husband and I ate here for dinner and love the atmosphere and food is very good. Loved the Calamari and pizza! Marinara sauce is awesome! Short handed though...but was served quickly! Would Recommend it.

My wife and I have been eating here at least once or twice a year for the last five years. This is definitely not the kind of restaurant that you would expect to find in a small town like T or C. You'll find a reasonably broad Italian menu and a big wine list. Our first few dinners were all... More

After soaking at Rvers Bend we decided to have a late lunch at Bella Luca. What a poor decision...but then again is there a true restaurant in in this town or is it all consequences? First we have the waiter. Was he really scratching his butt while he took our order? Were is hands really that dirty? Had he been... More

Are you traveling anywhere near T or C? Even if you're in Las Cruces or ABQ, you should make a trip over to Cafe Bella Luca for an unforgettable meal! One would only expect a diner or NM joint in T or C. This jewel is unexpected and well worth even a 2-hour drive! I had the best scallop dish... More

Vegetarian friendly, wait staff a hoot, a little pricey but does serve alcohol. Service was great. Will definitely go back next time in town.

The clams were delicious! The service was good although there was much confusion about what food was actually still available and what was sold out. We tried the shrimp appetizer and it was not good. The sangria was only ok. If I had known we could get a free sample, I would have had that and then ordered something else--I... More

My husband and I had a wonderful meal and exceptional service here. We ordered the calamari, risotto and scallops, pizza (I believe it was the Santa Barbara?) and we had an amazing creme brule for dessert. All were absolutely incredible. Additionally, my husband loves beer and I love wine and BellaLuca was able to cater to both of our tastes... More

Who knew that there was such fabulous Italian food in the New Mexico desert. If you ever have the chance, you need to stop and eat at Cafe Bella Luca. All of the food is fresh and the wood fired pizza is outstanding. Also, their wine list is beyond what one would expect.
