“A nice place for pizza and Italian dishes”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

This restaurant serves 13" pizzas (the only size), plus pasta dishes, calzones and panini. There is a nice outside courtyard, but in August it is too hot to sit there at 6:30 pm, although as we left, there were a few people willing to try. There are wooden straight back chairs and tables inside. There is a small bar you can sit at. There is a variety of wines. The pizza we had was the house special, Pizza Rossa, with a little bit of everything -- artichokes, black olives, green chilis, plus a lot more I can't remember, and the usual cheese and tomato, at $10.99, a very reasonable price. If you want parmesan cheese, they will grate it over your pizza. The side salad was a mix of greens, with blue cheese, and craisins, with a balsamic vinagrette dressing. It was good, but a bit expensive at $4.95. On Saturday night, they had a fellow playing the guitar and singing. He certainly played and sang loudly enough, but I could have done without him or with somewhat softer music. We did not have dessert, but they seem to have a large variety of Italian ice cream. It was in a display case as we entered. We were waited on promptly. There seems to be ample parking -- in front and on the side of the building.

“What a find!”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

Traveling from San Diego to Austin. We decided to stop in Las Cruses for some Mexican food. Being after 9:00 on a Saturday evening, most restaurants were closed. We stumbled upon this restaurant. Great service by a gentleman and young lady both knowing their menu as well as their wine menu. We loved the pizza and wine. My children especially loved the homemade galletto. Any restaurant with great wine as well as homemade Creme Brûlée is a win win.

“Good pizza, great ice cream”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

We had just the one night in Las Cruces, en route from Tombstone to Albuquerque, and we were recommended to come to Luna Rossa by our motel, partly as it was close by - described by them as the best nearest restaurant.

It is also the tasting room from a winery. We did not know grapes were grown in NM let alone produce wines.

The pizza was really good and the ice cream excellent. Would not go overboard on the wine though. One dish on offer intrigued us - pizza with Nutella!!

Would go again if in Las Cruces

“Great food, wine and ambience”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

Great food, very tasty and a good location. Easy to park out front and the interior of the restaurant is clean and appealing. The wine selection is very good, with reasonable prices. I will be coming back. It seems to get busy so reservations might be a good idea.
