Yum.

Delicious food, nice ambience, good sized outdoor patio. We were surprised to find such an upscale place in a little town. Despite being on the fancy side, the dress code is casual and hot springs visitors are welcome.

Me and my lady were in T or C at Riverbend Hot Springs. Chose Bella Luca for dinner. Had the best Rigatoni Bolognese I have had in as far back as I can remember. A had the chicken Parm. Meal was excellent, service was top notch. Will definitely eat there again.

No one answered the phone when we called for reservations so we walked over in person at 8:30 on a Saturday night. Wait staf was obviously disapponted to see us come in, then informed us they had "liquor license problems". The air con conditiioning was not workiing so we walked out and went someplace else. Very disappointing given the fact... More

I ordered the beef risotto. Wow! This was really a world class dish - fresh, wild mushrooms, caramelized carrots, and amazingly well flavored beef. Their liquor license had been revoked -if this is important, you might want to call first.

We've been to TorC several times, but only discovered this place on our most recent trip. The food was the best we've had in town.

I have eaten here many times and it has always been very fun and very good. This time when we sat down we were informed that they were not serving wine or beer. We had to leave.

Love everything here, from pizza to full-course dinners. Fine presentation, inventive selections. Don't miss the creme brûlée.

This is one of our favorites. Food and wine were great every time. Large helpings and well worth the price. The last time we went in early July the A/C was out and it was hot, but we stayed and ate, because the food and atmosphere are great

The food at Bella Luca is awesome; however, my feeling is that management doesn't want to cover paying extra for more servers. Ours did her best the last time we were there, but it was hard for her to cover all the tables as well as we would have liked. Food is outstanding, so allow plenty of time for service... More
