Have been here a few times in the last month and always found the friendly staff to be efficient and attentive. The menu is quite extensive with good specials and everything is served in an authentic Italian style. I would recommend this place for great food without being over the top. Always happy to return.

Large group, 2 tables of 10 each. Service was friendly and prompt, although the mains took a while to come. Started with bruschetta, lots of tomato onion garlic on 3 slices of bread. Not that great, and difficult to eat without knife and fork. Would give it a miss next time. Had the pasta special, prawn linguini in a cream... More

Last minute booking managed to get a table, no view of the beach or anything just to let you guys know if you were expecting that that doesn't bother me, Service was really great very friendly and warm, the pasta was really yum and the pizza was tasty. If you feel like Italian and your staying near by give it... More

I went to Luna Rossa on Monday night with a group of 10. Everyone had a great night and commented on the variety on offer on the menu. Everyone in our party enjoyed their food and commented on the wonderful service. We brought our own birthday cake and nothing was too much trouble.

It's tough to find "authentic" Italian food. When I stepped into the place I smelled my grandma's kitchen. The menu changes quite regularly and depends upon the seasonal ingredients. Close your eyes...and let a finger drop somewhere on the menu. This is the place that will teach you about great Italian fare. Get a fine red to with it. It's... More

This was the worst restaurant experience I have had. We sat down at the table at 6.20pm and our meals arrived at 8.15pm. It took 15mins for to get a waiter to take our first drinks order, which never came, and then another 10mins to get another waiter to take the same order, which didn't come. In the end we... More

We went to Luna Ross's for our anniversary dinner and were NOT disappointed! There was a huge menu with lots of choices we were both keen to try and our server let us know the kitchen was happy to adapt meals by our preference if their was something special we were craving. We ended up with Pollo al pepe and... More

First of all if you are going to pitch yourself as an Italian restaurant either stick to the English ( restaurant) or the Italian (Ristorante) on the external signage. Restaurante aligns with Spanish or Portuguese. The food is good with some creative variations to pure Italian , if a little on the pricey side for location and atmosphere. The thing... More
