Location and contact

Situated on Walworth Road, La Luna is a real treat if you���re looking for authentic Italian food and a welcoming atmosphere. This small family-run restaurant is popular with South London locals who make the short trip from Elephant and Castle and Camberwell to take advantage of the modestly priced menu. The rustic d��cor and friendly service makes it an ideal setting for lunch with friends or mid-week dinners with the family. On the menu, there are classic Italian pastas and delicious crisp-based pizzas that the kids will love. Popular dishes include the sirloin steak in a red wine and mushroom sauce; and the seafood risotto.

We were staying nearby and wnet to eat here after looking at the menu. Lovely neighbourhood feel and repeat customers indicated a good choice, and so it was! Good range of menu served with attention and humour, and very reasonable bill. They also do takeaways.
