This is a very nice restaurant, a bit pricy but chic, you will love it if you are going with a couple or with friends.

I ordered the spaghetti & meatballs - I was only able to eat 2 of the meatballs & about half of the noodles. Portions were much larger than I had expected ..... certainly made a great snack for later!!

I tried to eat here one time last year while staying in town, and after having at least three employees walk by me and not one even acknowledge I was standing there to be seated, I left. I guess having only four of the many tables in use makes them too busy. So I went back to T or C... More

A bit disappointed, thought it a bit dark and dingy - very open planned. I had the fish stew which was average, wife say's her vegetarian lasagne was the best lasagne she has ever tasted! The beer selection was also very good!!

I've been going to Truth or Consequences for years to join friends for offroad riding in the area. For years I never gave the town much of a second look until I started staying there and enjoying the local flavor. There are several great places to eat, Cafe Bella Luca is top of my list. Cafe Bella Luca is an... More

The food was fresh, hot and authentic. The calzone was wonderful! Their homemade sangria was good enough to take home. Service was slow but adequate. Since we hit a quiet time, there was only one waitress. We all left pleasantly satisfied with our meals. Would go again without hesitation!

Unfortunately did not read the reviews before we went here for dinner last night at friend's suggestion. We were seated promptly and were served water. Waiter indicated he'd be back for drink orders, but there was quite a lapse. Extensive wine list. Again wait for dinner order. Salads for everyone, but not impressed. I had the organic spring greens with... More

We were in town for the weekend, visiting the hot springs, and tried several of the local restaurants. We were so pleased with other restaurants in town, but Bella Luca was a real disappointment. They weren't all that busy, but were extremely disorganized. We had 3 different waiters approach our table at different times, but none of them took a... More
