I love this place. Pizza and garlic bread is beautiful. Only negative is I wish it was a bigger building so we would have more chance of getting a table! Other than that it's faultless

Attractive looking restaurant from the outside, but surprised by the more spartan interior. Was visiting Carlisle on a Sunday, en-route elsewhere and selected Last Mezzaluna based on trip advisor reports. Staff very friendly and service slightly slow, but obviously freshly prepared. Food was ok but disappointing given reports read - could be a different chef on a Sunday afternoon! My... More

Dinner Sunday evening and the place was quiet although very busy Saturday. Follow up visit from initial last year. Compact restaurant in crescent close to City Gate. Extensive Italian themed menu with all the usual suspects, Pizzas, Salads, seafood and chicken along with meats. Chicken breast in a cream sauce was excellent and the starter - Caprese used "proper" mozzerella... More

Visited today for the first time In a few years and it was really good, service was very attentive by a lovely lady, starter of mixed garlic breads was delicious and a nice change from ordinary garlic bread. Mains again were really tasty, drink prices very reasonable compared to some of the chain Italians around who charge ridiculous amounts, deserts... More

Went here with friends to celebrate a birthday. It was a Wednesday evening, there were nine of us and the restaurant was already quite busy. In spite of this, service was prompt and staff were helpful and attentive. All agreed the food was excellent. We had a great night and were the last to leave the restaurant. The total bill... More

Visited here for a happy hour meal before going to the cinema. Food was good - the chicken risotto is the best I've ever had and will always be my favourite. Service was okay but felt a little bit hassled to leave as when clearing my dessert bowl I was asked if I would like the bill which to me... More

Was late afternoon and we chanced our arm and asked if they could fit two in for a meal. They explained they had a big party arriving in an hour, so we were fine with that. Food was great and service was second to none.

Away on a girlie weekend in Cumbria with my daughter, we hunted for an inviting looking eatery on the Sunday evening. We found this restaurant, but is was very busy and most tables were full, we thought we were out of luck. A very friendly, smiley member of staff asked if she could help and said a table for two...

Firstly, I visit this restaurant regularly. It is, in my opinion, the best Italian in Carlisle because the food is spot on and the service is faultless. As you can see I have reviewed here before and always give it a glowing review. Tonight though on our visit, the service was really poor. The waiter taking our order, didn't seem... More
