Great service - ask for Mat!

Their food is very good and the service is great! We ordered take-out in advance and they had it ready even before they opened.

I was pleasantly surprised to find this good Italian restaurant in such a small town. The atmosphere was hip and urban, the music great, the service top-notch, and the food just what I was looking for.

Title says it all. Can't wait to go back. Food, service, atmosphere, wine list all incredible, especially for such a small town.

Great food and a nice atmosphere. We could not have asked for a better anniversary dinner. This place was a huge surprise and such a gem for TorC. Comparable to many of the highly rated restaurants in ABQ.

In T or C for a little R n R. Bella Luca is definitely one of the top three restaurants here. Our overall experience this time was much better than the last. We were there around 6:30 pm on a Tuesday and sat at one of the high top tables close to the kitchen. Fun to watch the staff in... More

Had dinner here based on Tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. I asked the waiter for a recommendation on beer, and despite them being out of a few varieties, he recommended one I was very pleased with. I had an arugula salad with chicken as I wasn't terribly hungry and my husband had the rigatoni, which the waiter said was... More

Best place in town for a quality dining experience in T or C. This is the most upscale in terms of sophistication in this town. Every thing else is either dated, dowdy, or grungy. We are vegetarians and were happy with our Lasagna and Eggplant Parmesan and Caprese salad. Thoughtful, extensive wine and craft beer lists. It was a busy... More

We stopped in and shared calamari and a large Capone pizza. The calamari was excellent with garlic and thin pepper rings. The pizza was also great, super meaty, I love the crust. When you first arrive, the waiter brings you a little dish of delicious olives, a basket of bread and an artfully decorated plate of Olive oil, herbs and... More
