Lovely Meal

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.

It's hard to find gluten-free food at restaurants let alone excellent gluten-free food but this place has it. 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.

Great place to grab a meal. The wine list is impressive. So is the service. The food's good, so why complain? (We're not)

In their defense, I did not make a reservation, but our plan was to get a pizza for carry out. When we arrived there was a 25 minute wait for inside but the host told us that he would just have to clean a table outside and we could sit on the patio. So we waited and waited and waited.... More

This was a great restaurant. Too bad the service was very slow and bad with only 3 tables to wait we sat for 30 minutes before wait staff appologized. The food was fair. Nothing like it has been.

We went on a busy night and waited quite awhile for a table. A local told us the food was worth the wait and he was right! The food was delicious, excellent wine selection, good service!

We had a wonderful dinner at Bella Luca and a lovely conversation with Jessica, who owns the restaurant. Two of her three children were on hand as well, eating dinner (a fabulous looking pizza) and doing homework. They were charming, lively and well behaved. How many parents are confident enough to bring their kids to work regularly!? Their company lent... More
