“Never disappointed.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

This is one of two restaurants in Las Cruces that can prepare salmon perfectly. Although everything I have ordered here has been wonderful, it's hard not to order the salmon every time! The pizzas are fantastic, the gelato is heavenly and the wines are some of the best in town. The servers are always friendly. Living in Las Cruces, we feel like susziq--up to our eyeballs with Tex-Mex and Mexican food. This is a much welcome change.

“They are even better now!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

My first review was in 2012. I had a complaint that the interior was very loud when crowded. They have fixed that by hanging acoustic ceiling tiles and by dampening the sound under the chairs. This last time there we had their specialty pizza and insalata caprese. Both were excellent. Their Nini wine is a superior red too. They also have great al dente pastas. Try the salmon and pasta. It is enough for two people, so you can split the dish. This place is one of my favorites.

“Noisey but worth the stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

We met with friends there who highly recommended it. They have $5 individual pizzas on Mondays. Thin crust pizza and very tasty. Be warned it gets very busy in the evenings. We went early to avoid the lines. By the time we left it was packed. They also have outdoor seating, but it was still day out and too hot. They have "Gluten Free" pizza dough which was good for my wife. Most of us had pizzas, but a couple friends had a salad and Panini sandwich. They looked very delicious. Overall a great experience.

“so good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

The atmosphere is the only negative about this place. It is not large but feels very open and noisy. But it is perfect for family's and groups and couples who do not mind a little noise.
We had been visiting Las Cruces for a week and were tex mex and Mexican food done. The staff at the resort suggested this place. The wine (we had a sangiovse) was very nice. We ordered an antipasti which was different than expected but very very good. The roasted red peppers were still warm and with the fresh mozzarella so good. The Prosciutto and artichoke hearts we also very good. The pizza's are baked in a wood fired oven and the crust is very thin with very fresh toppings. We loved it. This is not your traditional heavy sauce, lots of meat and cheese pizza this is more traditional Italy pizza. A great place!

“Over Rated Italian Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I tried Luna Rossa Winery & Pizzeria for dinner. I tried their Pinot Noir which was tasty. This establishment is, after all, a winery. However, their Italian food was not very good. I had a pizza with prosciutto and green chili. The prosciutto was lacking in saltiness and flavor and the green chili probably came out of a can. There was also too much cheese on the pizza. A far better pizza can be had at Zeffiro's Pizzeria Napoletena in downtown Las Cruces. Also, country western music does not go well with Italian food! Despite this, the servers were very friendly and my wife liked her pasta with meat sauce dish.
