I went with a large group and the staff were more than happy to accommodate group style dining with lots of to share dishes. The restaurant had an authentic Italian feel with friendly staff. The wine was superb and the food had that fantastic home made feel to it. Highly recommend!!

Incredibly warm and hospitable hosts who will chat and recommend what to have and its the little... More

Cala Luna is back being run by Osvaldo and the delightful Rita--and what a pleasant surprise. The restaurant had, in our view, deteriorated under some 'temporary' management...but be assured everything is back to normal and every bit as good as ever. The service and food is fantastic. There is an excellent menu with daily specials which are very appealing. Rita... More

A wonderful meal with great, friendly service. So super to have the original owners back at the helm of this terrific Italian restaurant in Maroochydore. Osvaldo uses the freshest of ingredients and this is reflected in the varied nightly specials, we've never been disappointed. Rita is a marvellous host who keeps the place running on well oiled wheels, and has... More

After our last, and less than impressive visit under new owners in January, it was with great delight that we learned Rita and Osvaldo had decided to return to Carla Luna where they'd built a great reputation both for the food and the ambience. On the first night of reopening, along with our regular dining companions, we turned up with... More
