“fantastic food and free wine sampling before 4p!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014

From start to finish this lunch was a treat. We started outside but it was too windy so we sat inside by the kitchen so our grandson could watch the food being made for us and everyone dining. The service was excellent. We started out with the five wine tree sampling. What a treat to sample a nice variety of wines. Our appetizers and pizzas were all fantastic and the prices are very reasonable. We finished off our delicious meal with chocolate gelato. It was so rich and filing we shared one scoop between the four of us!

“Authentic Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014

Luna Rossa is a phenomenal place for special occasions, dates, family dinners and, even casual dining. They pride themselves on creating the most authentic Italian dishes possible and they succeed. I took a friend who had come to the U.S. from Italy and he said it was the closest thing to real Italian food since he had left home. The people are great, the food is great and, the price is reasonable. Just be aware that if you go for dinner, it might be a little packed.

Only issue is that it's difficult to fit a large party here. Food and service are awesome along with great prices

“Lunch stop”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2014

Service was good, restrooms were clean with beautiful sinks, the patio was delightful but the inside restaurant was extremely noisy. The wine tasting was a great deal and the pizza was good.

“Good Food, Decent Wine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014

This little bistro has a bit of everything. Pizza, pasta, antipasti, gelato, and wine. There is a large outdoor seating area and a small indoor area. Unfortunately, they didn't have the lasagna I ordered, claiming they had updated their offerings but hadn't changed the menu yet. It seems they would want to provide an accurate menu or at least mention changes to customers. Anyway, that's a nit. The service is friendly and prompt and the food is very good. I can't rave about it as others have, but it's certainly better than average. The gelato is just OK, not as good as the gelato in Europe, even though they claim it is made from Italian ingredients. Similarly, the wine is merely fair, not nearly as good as a couple other wineries in Las Cruces, and they only offer their own wine, which I feel is a bit of a conceit. Like many wineries, they have tackled too many varietals, and instead of making a few good wines, produce at least 15 mediocre ones.

But overall it's a worthwhile experience, and I would go back if I was staying in the neighborhood again.
