The food was different and pricey but tasty. The waiter was friendly. Not a bad choice for fine dining.

This is a very nice restaurant with excellent service and excellent food. I had a calzone. It was very tasty and just enough food for one.

It has been a year and a half since our last visit (as this isn't exactly in our regular stomping grounds), but it was just as fabulous as we remembered! To start, the marinated olives are outstanding. They had a little more heat than I remembered but wow, are they ever good! The bread has a wonderful crunch to the... More

The scallops appetizer was cooked perfectly, the risotto creamy and well balanced and the bread pudding delicious. Service was excellent, the wine list had great choices and best of all...any unconsumed wine of our bottle was packed to go

Beautiful restaurant, staff is knowledgeable and food is fantastic! I go to this restaurant every time I'm in T or C. The owners are usually out on the floor working and are super friendly as well.

Every time my boyfriend and I stay in T or C, we go to Bella Luca so I can get the gluten-free calabasitas fettuccini (minus the Hatch chile--heresy, I know, but I can't do spicy anymore). There are even gluten-free choices for... More

Third time at Cafe Bella Luca, it is always great! We had the ravioli and wine - perfect, and the service was wonderful. We can't wait to go back.
