I have been going to La Luna Rossa for over 15 years. The service is wonderful, the chef creates delicious dishes with the freshest ingredients. I love the caprese salad, the fried calamari, the seafood chowder, the melt in your mouth gnocchi and the canoli.

This is a wonderful Italian restaurant that has some of the best lamb I have ever had. The staff is friendly and the owner is the head chef and always has time to chat with customers. Great place to take friends to dinner!

Authentic Italian food, had the veal lemon for a main course and it was pretty good. My wife had the steak and she stated it was cooked to perfection.

Description
La Luna Rossa is one of Calgary's longest operating authentic Italian restaurants. Since 1988 Chef Benny Ricioppo has served up exquisite culinary cuisine and projects his passion in every dish he creates. Teaching his kids Faustino, Alessandro and Diana the foundation of building a successful business, they have taken these skills to build business of their own, Azzurri Pizzeria being one of them! We welcome you to experience the closest thing Calgary has to true Italian cuisine and join our family for a night in Italy.
