Great food - sometimes dicey service

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... read more

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

Ok, I have not tried Ted's place but this place is wonderful. Great friendly service, wonderful food. I am a vegetarian and they have great vegetarian selections. Did I mention wine? Yes, good wine.

It was my husband's birthday and we'd really hoped for better. The service was slow and unfriendly and the food was unappetizing. We both had eggplant parmesan and they clearly served us food that had been frozen. They tried to disguise it with fresh cheese and sauce but that didn't work. To top it off the place was uncomfortably warm.

The food is amazing--made from scratch and with fresh herbs and seasonings. Never would have imagined such a place in small town New Mexico!

It was a nice restaurant, with a nice interior design. It was clean, which isnthe most important thing! The waiter was friendly. The food didn't taste Italian but the pizza was tasty overall. The tiramisu was different than what I was used to, not bad, but nothing special too. Loved the booths, very comfortable to sit there and have lunch... More

The pizza was delicious and the service was good. The meal came out quickly and the bathrooms were clean. The only negative was that the AC didn't pump in massive amounts of cold air and it just so happened to be HOT and sticky outside and thus, inside as well.
