“Restaurant is a !!!!! MUST !!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

Pleasantly surprised how my partner and i have not found this restaurant before now. We like to travel in to villages and small towns for country pubs and nice restaurants to spend a nice evening. We pre booked a table for a Saturday evening. Walked in to a lovely clean bar and served straight away. We were met by waitress who took are name then seated us at are table. We spent along time looking at the menu as we were spoilt for choice with such a variety of foods. We had 2 starters calamari and boar pate, mains salmon and lamb shank which were delicious, washed down with a bottle of red and white wine. The only fault i had was i had no room for left for a dessert. . Lol. . Over all great service, fantastic food and a nice comfortable atmosphere. All i can say is this restaurant is a !!!!!!!MUST!!!!!! And we can't wait to go back. :-)

“Gone Downhill”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

For the last 5 years this has been our favourite restaurant in Uckfield but on the last 3 occasions we've eaten there we've been disappointed with the food and ambience. The prices have gone up and the menu is now confusing. It used to be a good Italian restaurant with genuine Italian waitors and chef but it now offers burgers and fahitas and toffee pudding with custard and Sunday Roasts, not very Italian. Most times we had the specials which guaranteed fresh ingredients and changed every week but they are not offered any more.
The Pasta and Pizzas used to be a good meal and always offered the same quaility and standard. The Pizzas are now smaller and the bases thicker and the pasta is no longer freshly made. I had a Penne Rustica with added chicken. It tasted predominately of tinned tomatoes and the chicken was reheated not freshly made.The waiter asked if I liked it and I said I didn't and he said he would mention it to the manager (who was no where to be seen) they didn't offer to take my meal off the bill which was £34.00 for a light lunch!!
Very disappointing as this restaurant was walking distance from our house and opposite the Cinema so very convenient. I don't think we'll be going again unless someone gives it rave reviews.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

It is such a shame as this restaurant has masses of potential but we always end up feeling let down, we have only visited a handful of times and each time vow not to come back as this is not a cheap Italian restaurant. The food is disappointing, the atmosphere is ok but depending what table you sit at the acoustics are terrible on our last visit we had the table on the right at the top of the stairs, there was only 4 of us but we couldn't hear what each other we're saying so ended up only being able to talk to the person next to you.

“Lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

My husband and I went to Luna for lunch the other Sat (19th Jan) sometimes it is a struggle to find somewhere nice to eat and places that are open and still serving food, it was 2.15 so a lateish lunch. The restaurant is lovely and the welcoming was as good. The food was delicious, I had traditional Bruchetta to start and Lasagne as main, the old ones are the best ones, My husband had Soup of the day which was Vegetable and Bangers and Mash as main. They were all lovely and inexpensive. An enjoyable way to spend an hour or so on a Saturday afternoon, will definately be going back. I noticed on the menu (which has a varied choice) that they do a cinema special between 3 and 7 so will be returning for that one

“An improved restaurant!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

Having previously reviewed because of a bad experience, we were tempted back due to lack of choice of restaurants and have now had a good experience. While still on the pricey side we enjoyed a really nice meal here, food was improved as it was served warm, waiting service was better and we really enjoyed the atmosphere. Would like to see more veggie choice on the menu, but will go back again.
