While on vacation, we visit wineries... Luna Rossa was fabulous! A cave where they store wine is connected to the bar and restaurant. Cave tours are generally available everyday. Our bartender generously poured us some of her favorites in addition to the ones we chose. Their wine store is next door and had a 20% off sale that day, so... More

We ate here on a Sunday evening. They were out of several items in the menu, but we had starving kids and were through the appetizers before we knew about the unavailable items. When we are in the area again, we won't make it a point to return.

Luna Rossa has been a special place for my husband and I. We try to dine there at least a couple times a year. It's best to make a reservation, otherwise you can expect to wait a bit. The food was great. My husband had pizza and I tried the Cannelloni - both were excellent.

Had lunch here on a Monday, because of a power failure at the place we had planned. The Italian chopped salad was full of packaged meats which were greasy and salty. Service was slow and there was a musty smell inside.

This restaurant is one of the best Italian restaurants I have ever eaten at. The building has a very interesting history. There are caves behind the restaurant and you can tour them if you want to (admission required). All the food I have tasted here was worth coming back for. Make reservations in advance so that you make sure you... More

Extremely rude hostess who would not seat us despite reservations and said our wait would be two hours. Ruined our evening out and our opinion of the restaurant. Why would someone behave that way!!!

My husband and I were in town for our anniversary and found this cave tour on a groupon and it didn't disappoint. We took a small group cave tour that included wine tastings and appetizer platter throughout (pay extra). Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and made it a very fun experience for us. We had a drink at the... More

I had the salmon special and it was very good. The portion was generous and the vegetable side was flavorful. My husband ordered pizza, it was ok. Staff was friendly and the atmosphere was good for date night, we were able to talk comfortably.

On a girls day out, we opted for the public cave tour, which was $7/person, lasted 25 minutes, and did not include wine or apps. This is a small man-made cave, which is impressive, but as a result it lacks most of what makes a cave tour intriguing. Our guide had her facts well memorized, but her delivery was lacking.... More
