Im a local and had no idea this place was here. The signage and entrance is not impressive. Dont let that turn you away. The food and staff are the impressive part of the experience. The restaurant has a quaint italian feel. Rita is a wonderful hostess who makes you feel welcome and adds to the enjoyment of the evening. Her wait staff were well trained and gave just the right amount of attention to the table.
The food was very tasty and seemed more authentic that your average italian restaurant. Rita gave us the opportunity to taste the wine. We had a nice italian wine which was very enjoyable. Its so rare these days to be offered a taste.
The other nice thing was that we were able to watch the ships and boats go by. It overlooks the beach so the views are nice.
The prices weren't expensive either.
Overall it was a wonderful experience. Will definitely be going back and bringing friends.

To start with, this is a well run establishment with a pleasant atmosphere. The table service is exceptional and of course the most important aspect of this restaurant is the stunning cuisine. The food is well presented, well proportioned and is of the highest standard. Everyone I have ever taken or recommended this restaurant has come away with nothing but praise. The prices are reasonable considering what you get for your money.

We regularly dine at Cala Luna Restaurant as it is amazing food and always consistent. Rita is the ultimate hostess making every single person in her resturant feel like they are the only one she is looking after. We often dine there with friends as you know it will be good.

Fantastic service by all staff. We were made to be feel most welcome. We were not sure which Italian wine to choose so Rita promptly offered a tasting of the two wines we had picked. What we finally choose was outstanding. The Main 'Special' Squid Ink Lasagne was simply delicious - highly recommend this dish whilst it is on the menu!
The Dessert 'Special' Coffee and Buffalo Ricotta Pudding was amazing!
I highly recommend a night out at Cala Luna.

We have been a few times now and will probably try elsewhere. No complaints but the food can be a little bland. Had snapper, which was a nice bit of fish but was overcooked. my wife had duck cannalone which was bland. Very friendly owner and fairly priced, so will be back but will also look around for something we prefer.
