Food is always delicious, and the staff are always friendly and welcoming. It is a little hard to find on the first visit.

Have eaten here before about a year ago and thought it was better. Food was good, but the sauce on one of the dishes just did not taste like it was home made. One of our party had seafood risotto and it was delicious. Service was good but not great.

It seems to be very hard to good Italian restaurants any where else. Gone are the days when there were multiple choices of great Italian restaurants in every town. Thankfully Cala Luna still is. The service is friendly and the atmosphere is comforting with the lighting just right. I've had a few great nights here and hope for many more.

I can't remember ever walking out of a restaurant so disappointed with the food quality, our choice was cannelloni and gnocchi nothing magical for an Italian restaurant, snothered in a tomato sauce so much so you could not see the gnocchi let alone taste them, very poor.

As regular visitors to Carla Luna we knew the new owners would find it difficult to match the high standard set by Rita and Osvaldo. So while we and our regular dining companions were optimistic we knew we had to judge the new regime on its merits alone. The usual warm personal greeting by Rita of course was missing but... More

Extremely disappointing. Drink orders wrong, 6:30 pm booking and then first meal served at 8pm. When booking they seemed hesitant about a 12 person booking. I relayed that if it was a problem we'd make it another time. Very abliging over the phone. The table was not even set when we arrived, meal orders were not as ordered.Their excuse, too... More

A great restaurant is great whether it be for a couple, friends or the entire family. The couple that own the restaurant particularly Rita in making everyone feel welcome. We were delighted when we enquires about Italian wines and Rita gave us a tasting of several wines before choosing .

The owners of Cala Luna opened their restaurant for our group even though they would normally have been closed at that time. They made us feel very welcome with friendly, attentive and timely service. We had a special menu for lunch which was well received by almost all of our group. We had a choice of three mains and three... More
