The food is always gorgeous just like the lady who owns it. It's mostly a lively restaurant, guests are made to feel at home, meals are a good size, wines to savour and to quaff!

“Take away, average”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

We were staying close by so we ordered a couple of take away pizzas. Small size is very small. The seafood pizza didn't seem to be made using fresh ingredients. It was an average pizza. Overall experience wasn't great.

The food and the service at this restaurant hasn't changed in years - thank goodness because it is great. Rita and Osvaldo have a good atmosphere here and the food is always good. We enjoy our time when we are here. The servings are large and there is always a few specials on the night.

“Great food; great service; great atmosphere”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Cala Luna is one of our favourite restaurants on the Sunshine Coast. The food is genuine Italian, very well cooked and presented. The waitresses are very attentive, friendly and well supervised by Rita. Rita and her team create a welcoming atmosphere that invites you to return again and again.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

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.
